Mold is Not Always Visible

Have you experienced a sudden headache or allergies when you arrive at work or come home after a long day? You are not alone. Many people experience similar side effects when they are exposed to mold in their home, business, or place of work. 

The phrase, “You have to see it to believe” does not apply when it comes to mold. There are many instances when there is mold in a property and you can’t see it. Mold can be found behind walls, ceilings, baseboards, under floors, insulation, behind cabinets, you name it! For that reason, it is best to rely on smell, visible deterioration, and your intuition to detect mold. If you smell a musty odor, see paint chipping, stained drywall, water damaged drywall or wallpaper peeling, it may mean a mold problem is present.

At First to Respond Restoration, we refer our clients to a third-party environmental testing company when they suspect they have mold and the mold is not visible.  We provide our clients a complimentary list of well-rated businesses that have proven to be experts in their fields, have a quick turnaround time, and excellent customer service.

Once the environmental company conducts the testing of the air and/or surfaces, they will provide you with a Mold Report that will indicate if the air quality in your property is safe or not. If it is found that the air quality is not safe, the testing company will recommend a scope of work. What exactly does this mean? The testing company will provide a step-by-step plan on what areas need to be cleaned and remediated by a professional restoration company.

Here’s where we come in!
