It’s important to understand the difference between mold inspections and remediators. Mold inspections are sometimes confused with remediators, but they are two very distinct processes.
A inspection is a procedure intended to locate mold and understand the extent of the situation. Mold remediation, on the other hand, is the process of removing mold. Inspectors analyze and view the scene, while remediation experts eliminate and remove the mold. Inspections come first, followed by remediation.
To be clear, AWA Environmental only conducts mold inspections. There is a conflict of interest that arises when a mold remediation company performs the mold inspection. A free mold inspection is not what it seems. The mold remediation company performing a free mold inspection has something to gain from telling you have mold. At AWA Environmental, you can be sure that we are giving you an unbiased mold inspection.
Think of it as a small-scale system of checks and balances. When you hire the mold inspection experts at AWA Environmental, you can trust us to test your property whether you hire us for a mold inspection, to test for mVOCs, or mycotoxins. Our trained team of inspectors will always provide a conclusive follow-up inspection after a mold removal company has removed the mold from the premises. That way, we can promise that the mold has been cleared from your property in entirety.
Mold can cause serious long-term health problems. From slight trouble breathing to full-on asthmatic symptoms, and irritated eyes to sore throats, mold can become extremely dangerous to the well-being of you and your loved ones.
Extended exposure to mold will also cause deterioration of the foundation and architectural structure of your home. After a short while, the physical effects of mold on your house can quickly become irreversible. For these reasons, and many others, it is necessary that you reach out to AWA Environmental as soon as you suspect that mold might be the cause.
