Mold causes a number of problems, and you may not even realize it’s effecting you without professional mold testing from AWR Restoration & Cleaning.

There are many harmless mold varieties, like those in blue cheese or many bread mold types. Unfortunately, mold that frequently grows in homes and business can be extremely hazardous to humans.

Effective Mold Remediation & Removal
You may not realize it, but if you see visible indications of mold, there is probably more you cannot see. That’s because mold frequently grows in ceilings, walls, under floorboards, and other difficult-to-see locations.
When it comes to mold removal, soapy water simply doesn’t cut it. If our mold testing locates areas of mold, we’ll track and map the scope of the problem. Our services don’t end there, though. Our Kent mold testing technicians are fully trained in mold remediation and removal and can restore your property back to its pre-mold state.
When to Schedule Mold Testing
There are a few signs that it’s time to schedule professional mold testing services, including:
- Persistent Allergy Symptoms– Mold can be responsible for a wide array of allergy symptoms. There are some rudimentary ways to narrow it down, but mold testing is the best way to determine if they are mold-related. One thing to be wary of is when allergy symptoms get worse. If symptoms are worse inside the home than outside, they may be mold-related. Mold-related symptoms include sore throat, sinus congestion, sneezing, itchy eyes, and difficulty breathing. Black mold grows exceptionally well in our climate, and produces deadly mycotoxins. These may cause blindness, brain damage, or even death.
- Seeing Mold – If you’ve spotted mold in your home, you already have a problem. Professional mold testing is your best tool in determining how far it has spread. Different mold species can have radically different appearances. Physical structures range from flaky to stringy or patchy. Common Northwest mold colors include white, black, light green, and more. Our technicians can positively identify what kind of mold you have.
- Water Problems – One of the most common precursors to mold growth is water damage. Flooding, leaks, burst pipes, and pooling can all lead to excessive moisture. Mold favors these environments and will grow unfettered if the damage isn’t repaired and current mold isn’t removed. Our technicians can do both. The sooner you have water related problems dealt with, the less likely you are to need extensive restoration.
Now that you know some of what you should watch out for, trust your knowledge and take action if you see signs of mold. Don’t risk property damage and health effects when affordable mold testing in Kent is just a phone call away.
