Getting Your Home Tested for Mold
Before you move into any home, SPY Inspection Services recommends mold testing. Undetected mold problems can lead to health issues and an uncomfortable living situation. To prevent homeowners from ending up in a mold-ridden home, we can perform mold evaluations and air samplings to determine the best course of action.

Prevent Mold Growth by Preventing Moisture Problems
Mold is a type of fungus that is found in our natural environment. The spores can be found virtually everywhere, including homes, growing on building materials and furnishings. Excess moisture is the leading cause of any indoor mold problem. Whenever mold growth is found to be present in a home, it should not be ignored. Eventually, the moisture and mold will damage what it is growing on, including building materials and personal belongings.
How Mold in Your House Affects Your Health
The health effects of mold exposure can vary greatly depending on the person and the amount of mold in their home. The typical symptoms that may occur from unhealthy mold levels include coughing, wheezing, nasal, and throat conditions. People with asthma or allergies who are sensitive to mold may notice their asthma or allergy symptoms worsen.
Individuals with severely weakened immune systems exposed to moldy environments are at risk of developing serious fungal respiratory infections. SPY recommends that anyone concerned about the effects of a moldy environment on their health consult a medical professional. Although there is wide variability in how people are affected by mold exposures, the long term presence of indoor mold growth may eventually become unhealthy for anyone.
The following types of people may be affected more severely and sooner than others:
- infants and children
- elderly people
- individuals with respiratory conditions or sensitivities such as allergies or asthma
- persons having severely weakened immune systems (for example, people with HIV infection, chemotherapy patients, organ transplant recipients)
