MOLD TESTING

Mold can be found almost anywhere, as long as moisture and a food source is present. While not all molds are toxic, recent research shows an alarming rate of harmful fungal species in poorly maintained homes or buildings with water damage, moisture or high humidity levels.

 

There are many steps you can take to reduce the risk of mold growth by controlling the moisture level in your home or building. Call Carlile Group today for more information, quotes or to schedule your mold inspection.

WHAT CONDITIONS CONTRIBUTE TO MOLD GROWTH?

  • Water intrusion or leaks

  • Fibrous materials, such as wood, paper backing or gypsum board and any building product that can hold moisture

  • High humidity levels

  • Damp conditions

WHAT AREAS ARE INCLUDED IN OUR VISUAL SEARCH?

  • Basement and lower rooms, crawl space, rooms with water/moisture damage

  • Interior walls

  • Window frames

  • Carpet

  • Ceiling tiles and other current or former damp materials made of fibrous cellulose 

  • All accessible heating, ventilation and air conditioning components

  • Indoor plants

  • Attics 

WHAT HAPPENS IF MOLD IS SUSPECTED?

If mold is suspected, samples can be collected and sent to a lab for analysis to confirm such contamination and help determine proper remediation.

WHY TEST YOUR HOME FOR RADON?

The U.S. Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. today. Radon can be a problem in all types of homes and has been found in homes in every state.

WHAT FACTORS CAN AFFECT RADON LEVELS IN THE HOME?

  • Local geology

  • Construction materials

  • How the home was built

WHAT DO YOU DO IF HIGH RADON LEVELS ARE PRESENT?

You should test your home for the level of radon gas present in the indoor air. If you have high radon levels, there are ways to solve a radon problem. Even very high levels can be reduced to acceptable levels.

WHY CHOOSE CARLILE INSPECTIONS FOR YOUR RADON TESTING?

It is important to get an accurate test. The best way to assure this is to hire a qualified professional to conduct the radon testing. As qualified tester, Carlile Group Inspectors know the proper conditions, test devices, and guidelines for obtaining reliable radon test results.

RADON TESTING & ANALYSIS

Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. You cannot see, smell or taste radon, but it may be a problem in your home. Radon is the result of the natural decay of uranium in soil, rock, and water, and enters the home from below.

 

The EPA urges every homeowner to test for radon, especially during real estate transactions.
