We only provide Katy TX Mold Testing and Mold Inspection, not Mold Removal and Remediation. There is a conflict of interest when hiring a company that removes the very thing that they test for, as it's in the company's best interest that the test turn out positive!
Mold can be found everywhere in the Katy TX area, both indoors and outdoors, especially in places with a lot of moisture. Areas where water leaks and flooding have occurred, and near windows where condensation builds up, are especially susceptible, as is wet cellulose materials, paper and cardboard, ceiling tiles, wood, wallpaper, insulation and upholstery.
Mold spores can make their way into a building through the air (such as through open windows, doors, and ventilation systems) or by attaching to people or objects (like clothing, shoes and pets).
Exposure to mold can create adverse health effects, particularly for those who are sensitive to mold. Symptoms may include headaches, sinusitis and nasal stuffiness, decreased attention span and concentration, dizziness, respiratory symptoms and more. Children, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems are especially susceptible.
We use several mold testing methods for our Katy TX Mold Inspection services, including Air Samples (testing the air for mold spores), Bulk Samples (testing a piece of drywall or carpet with mold on it), Tape Lift (using tape to lift mold from a surface), and Swab Samples (using a moistened cotton swab to wipe the surface).
