Most of you know that mold mainly grows in wet and dark places, but sometimes you can get caught completely off guard. Whether you've started to sense a mildew odor or just saw a visible black stain in your home - the thought of having mold in your home can be terrifying for anyone. In this sort of situation, you will need to take the next and probably the safest step - scheduling a mold inspection from a professional company that has years of experience and knows how to solve this problem.
You might be asking, how much time will the entire mold testing process take? What kind of methods will they use? Is the process safe? What about results? Well, don't worry because UCM Carpet Cleaning of DC is here to answer all your questions and make things a lot more clearer. Let's start!
Broadly speaking, mold testing is the process where the technician briefly inspects the entire property of the owner (mostly they start by inspecting the basement, attic, kitchen, bathroom, walls, etc.) to distinguish what particular type of mold is in your home and the number of mold spores in the air. It's usually done by using various up-to-date pieces of equipment and all kinds of procedures.
At UCM Carpet Cleaning of DC, we always strive to provide the best mold testing service to our clients. The entire process is performed in a couple of essential steps, and we will briefly describe each and every one of them.
Before we begin the whole mold testing process, you will be required to schedule an appointment with one of our customer support assistants. You will be able to get in touch with us through our official phone line, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. They are extremely friendly and will be able to answer any type of questions or concerns you might have regarding your situation and hook you up with a suitable date and time. Arrangements can be made 7 days a week to ensure a time that fits into your busy schedule.
This step involves two methods - mold inspection and mold testing.
The inspector will do a quick little interview with you (the client) about the black spots you've seen or the health problems you're having. They will start by performing visual inspection around the entire exterior and search for possible mold growth, abnormal humidity levels, and water invasion. Next, they will get inside the property and visually inspect the whole place from roof to bottom. Based on the results of the entire mold inspection and client interview, we will be able to prepare for the next step - the sampling process.
The next part involves collecting environmental samples and readings. The mold inspector will start taking interior air quality samples with the help of different up-to-date equipment - moisture meter, humidity meter, and thermal imaging device. As a bonus, UCM Carpet Cleaning of DC also performs a swab sample of the HVAC system, which can help us get better insight into the environment's air quality. The time this process will take will vary, depending on the number of tests performed and the size of the property.
Once the mold testing samples are collected successfully, we take all of the biological samples to a certified laboratory for processing. They will carefully analyze all of the samples and perform multiple laboratory testing with the help of modern instruments that provide 99.9% accuracy on all the test results. Upon completion, they will put together all of the information in just a single report and ship it back to us for further investigation. The results of the tests will generally be available in a few business days after they receive them.
Finally, when the lab results arrive, we will immediately call you to confirm whether there is any mold presence on your property. If the inspection is positive, we will do our best to explain some of the best methods to remove the mold growth and assist you in understanding how to proceed with mold removal. Apart from this, you will also get an e-mail of the whole mold testing report that includes our analysis and suggestions. We also provide our customers with mold remediation services.
