Why have an evaluation by a mold consultant?
" Assessments for fungal growth may be useful wherever fungal growth is suspected, excess moisture has been present or there are concerns regarding potential growth." ASTM 2011.
A mold assessment is often performed to help locate and
quantitate indoor mold growth and to determine if the air quality has been compromised. This is investigated by taking a history of past/current water damage, doing a visual inspection and/or collecting air and tape samples to look for abnormalities.
Are some molds more hazardous than others?
Allergic persons vary in their sensitivities to mold, both as to amount and type needed to cause reactions. In addition, certain types of molds can produce toxins (mycotoxins). Mycotoxins are poisons that are produced by molds if they are trying to compete to inhibit other types of mold from growing on the same surface. The mycotoxins are toxic to humans as well. When mycotoxins are present, they occur in both living and dead mold spores and may be present in materials that have become contaminated with molds.
