Mold in your Iowa home may pose a bigger threat than you expect. There are serious health issues related to mold exposure. Outside of the normal health effects of mold that you commonly hear about (asthma, sinus issues, upper respiratory problems, skin infections, burning eyes, headaches, fatigue, and depression), there are other health issues related to mold exposure that are not quite as well known. Also as scary as it sounds, mold can grow inside your lungs. Pulmonary fibrosis, is widely believed to be directly related to Stachybotrys, more commonly known as black mold.

In Iowa, or anywhere, it is important to take exposure to mold seriously. Black mold is most commonly blamed for mold sickness, but if you, or someone in your home, is especially sensitive to mold, even normally harmless molds can cause serious and lasting damage to your health. The longer the mold in your home is left untreated, the more serious your symptoms can become. Calling Mold Test USA is an important first step to ensuring your home is safe and clean for you and your family.

 

What To Look For When Hiring a Mold Inspector in Iowa

If you are living in Iowa, and you need a professional mold testing company, always look for a company that is credible. Legitimate companies will have the proper certifications and insurances. Because there are no laws establishing a separation of mold inspection and mold remediation companies, there are no laws protecting you from being taken advantage of by “do it all” companies. But why should you be wary of companies that offer mold inspection and mold remediation services? It seems like it would be more convenient, and if they offer package deals, then why wouldn’t you want to save a few dollars?

If a company can make more money off of mold remediation than inspections alone, they have more reason to “find” mold on your property. Whether it’s really there or not. It stands to reason that mold remediation companies would offer cheap or free “inspections,” because it’s an excellent way to ensure that people will “need” mold removal. At Mold Test USA, we test and inspect for mold. We have nothing to gain by finding mold on your property. If it’s not there, we’ll celebrate with you and be on our way. 

 

Does All Mold Necessitate Remediation? 

Even more not all mold spores are dangerous. Mold, just like the mushrooms that you buy from the grocery store, are a type of fungus. Penicillium mold is used to make the drug penicillin. And some molds are used as a non-pharmaceutical substitute for statin drugs! So again, they’re not all bad for you. Some common household molds don’t even cause mold-sickness unless you’re especially sensitive to them. That is why it’s important to test first. It could mean the difference between a simple cleanup and an expensive and invasive mold remediation service.

Mold Test USA acts as your health inspector. Our only goal is to ensure that your home is safe and healthy for you and your family. We will let you know if you need a remediation service, but we will also send our findings to dedicated laboratories. There, biologists and microbiologists will translate your results for the purpose of understanding the findings. You can take these results to your doctor to find out if your symptoms could be because of mold we find in your home.

 

By Your Side To The End

If mold remediation is needed in your Iowa home, we will be by your side through the process instead leaving you to figure it out on your own. Before your remediation company leaves your home, we will come back and test again to ensure that all the mold has truly been removed and mitigated.

Hiring Mold Test USA means having an ally through the entire process.
