The Importance of Testing for Mold

1/20/2022 (Permalink)

Testing for the type of mold, the severity, and the density within the rooms is the only way to get the full picture. SERVPRO of East Honolulu cares about our community. Mold is no easy feat on the account of its mobility, we understand the necessary sensitivities that ought to take place when dealing with mold. 

As challenging as it may be from air-borne fungal spores, to humidity levels for mold breeding. SERVPRO of East Honolulu cleans and kills mold in spaces. Mold spores are microscopic, with unventilated air space they increase dramatically with time. Eventually creating a mold colony. Physical manifestations of mold indicate that the spores have been active for a while. Activated on organic wet materials, like particle boards on dressers or wet drywall from a pipe leak. 

Ensuing the need for tests and specific measurements. The start of mold colonies or “hot spots” are just the tip of the iceberg. It is hard to instantly know the needed treatment of your property without taking a look into the microscopic world. We test air quality, to find how many spores are in the most affected area. We also have to test some materials in which physical colonies of mold are on. These surfaces will give us a good idea of moisture content and the water needed to sustain such a hot spot. To also know the extent of the mold, we also take a sample seemingly furthest from the area- gaging the change in air quality. 

Testing the air quality is an important start to the de-molding process.
