Is Mold Testing And Mold Removal Expensive?
Being that mold testing and mold removal are quite different from each other, we will start with mold testing first. First of all mold testing is not very expensive in Mississippi. Mold removal can be very expensive. When it comes time for mold removal you want to have an inspection company like Mold Test USA your corner. Mold Test USA only does mold testing and mold inspections we do not do any type of mold remediation or mold removal. It is a huge conflict of interest in Mississippi to do both. But beware there are companies out there that are more than willing to do both anyway. It is like grading your own homework. We as mold inspectors hold mold remediation companies accountable for the work they do.
If you have a mold inspection performed by our company and it passes inspection you will get a clean bill a help issue to you from us. If you have a mold inspection prior to hiring a company to do mold removal the mold removal company should receive clearance from us before leaving the job, that way you are protected. You are not paying for a job that is underperformed.
There is mold everywhere Mississippi is no exception. The reason for mold’s existence in the first place is to decay materials. That’s its purpose. Without mold we would literally be living on a mountain of trees. That being said there are over 100,000 different types of mold. They are not all bad for you. Some molds are actually good. The drug penicillin comes from the mold spore Penicillium. Mushrooms that you buy at any local Mississippi store are actually a fungus as well. I guess everything has a purpose.

Do I have house mold?
The answer to this question is yes. There is mold in every home whether you live in Mississippi or anywhere else, you will have mold in your house. The question is are the mold spores elevated beyond the outside air? And of course, what type of mold is in your home. We as mold inspectors are able to answer those two major questions for you. The way we do this is through mold testing or air sampling.
Now let’s talk about mold removal in your Mississippi home. The first thing the first thing you want to do is of course have mold testing performed. It is important to find out what type of mold you are up against. We need to know whether it is a dangerous mold spore or not. Something for you to keep in mind if you are a Mississippi homeowner is that mold removal can be very expensive. It is high risk high pay. Unfortunately, it’s not something you want to try to tackle unless you are certified, trained and you know exactly what you are doing.
If you are a do-it-yourself homeowner and you decide to perform mold removal yourself, you risk cross contaminating your entire house. You also risk getting mold spores into the air and making everyone in your home sick. My advice is don’t try to remove mold unless you know what you are doing even if you have had mold testing done. It is not worth the risk. If we can help you in any way, or answer any questions you may have, we will be glad to do so whether you hire us or not.
