Massachusetts Image Slide Mold Testing and InspectionsIf you think your Massachusetts home or business has mold, there are some things you need to consider. For fear that there is mold on your property, one of the first things you should think about is mold testing. Believe it or not, some mold remediation companies won’t even test to find out what kind of mold you have before deciding that you need costly removal and abatement services. What if you do perform mold testing and find out that your Massachusetts home or business is not infected by toxic mold? If so, there may not even be a need for professional mold removal. That could mean as a result of this, potentially saving yourself hundreds, even thousands, of dollars! Remediation in Boston due to mold can cost over $40 an hour. So, save yourself money and trouble!

 

 Symptoms of Mold Allergies

Common symptoms as a result of, non-toxic mold allergies include upper respiratory infections, burning eyes, headaches, rashes or skin irritations, sinus infections, asthma, bronchial problems, etc. To sum up, the list goes on and on. Toxic mold sickness symptoms include those, but also include even more terrifying things. In short, things like seizures, swelling or bleeding of the lungs, irregular heartbeat, bleeding in brain and other organs, jaundice, immunosuppression, coma, and death. Because not everyone is affected by mold in the same way, it is important to take complaints of these symptoms from others seriously. Even if you yourself are not feeling any symptoms.

thusThis is especially true if there are children, elderly, or anyone with a compromised immune system present. If your symptoms lessen after you leave the potentially infested area and become more severe when you reenter, odds are you have a mold allergy, or possibly toxic mold on your premises. If you are worried that you are experiencing these, or other, mold illness symptoms, in any case, calling Mold Test USA should be among your first steps.

 

Keep Them Separated

Too often, mold remediation companies take advantage of the fear, confusion, and general misunderstanding around mold and toxic mold. Companies that offer testing as a promotion do so to get you to sign a contract saying that if they “find” mold, you’ll pay them to remove it. There’s no way to check their work because they do all of it. All in all you wouldn’t have a large medical procedure without getting a second, unbiased opinion, would you? So why would you pay potentially thousands of dollars for an invasive mold remediation in your home without being sure it was necessary?

Not only that, but if mold remediation is necessary, we’ll come back before your removal company leaves.  Then we’ll reinspect your home and ensure that they have done their job properly and completely. It keeps everyone honest and diligent, thus keeping you safe.

Massachusetts Mold Laws

Massachusetts General Laws, ch. 111, § 127A

Authorizes the Department of Health to adopt a state sanitary code to address matters affecting the health and well- being of the public. Regulations adopting the Sanitary Code (105 Code Mass. Regs. 675.001 et seq.) establish IAQ requirements for ice rinks, including air sampling and record-keeping requirements; action levels for carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide; and required corrective action, notification and evacuation measures. A separate chapter of the Sanitary Code (105 CMR 410.020) establishes Minimum Standards of Fitness for Human Habitation that apply to all dwelling units, including leased units. The Code requires dwelling owners to maintain structural elements (including foundation, floors, walls, doors, windows, ceilings, and roofs) in good repair and free from chronic dampness and defines chronic dampness as “the regular and/or periodic appearance of moisture, water, mold or fungi.”

Massachusetts General Laws, ch. 13, § 97

Requires the state to publish an informational brochure for home buyers on home inspections, including information regarding radon inspections, and requires that the brochure be issued to home buyers at the signing of the first written contract to purchase. Rules promulgated under the law (266 Code Mass. Regs. 6.03) require home inspectors to notify their clients that answers to some questions, including whether or not a dwelling has been tested for radon gas, and whether there are any mold or air quality issues in the dwelling, should be ascertained from sellers and may not be readily observable through inspection.

Massachusetts General Laws, ch. 70B, § 3

“Establishes a School Building Assistance program to provide funding to local governments for school construction and renovation, and authorizes the Board of Education to establish policies and standards regarding school construction.

Amended in 2006 to create the Massachusetts School Building Authority and school building grant program. Regulations governing these state-funded projects (963 Code Mass. Regs. 2.04) require that all reasonable efforts be made to ensure suitable indoor air quality. The regulations also establish specific IAQ-related requirements for state- funded projects, including: ventilation and thermal comfort; containment procedures for pollutants created during renovation; filtration; walk-off mats; gas-fired equipment; siting of outside air intakes; and prevention of mold and water damage in building materials.”
