Redmond Mold Inspections

Mold in any structural environment can present many health challenges, from mild allergies to more severe illnesses.

Mold needs to have moisture on which to grow. In most cases household mold is due to moisture problems. Mold also needs food and nutrients. Most materials found in homes will support the growth of mold and mildew if they become damp.

Flooding, leaking water pipes or fixtures, backed-up or faulty drain plumbing, leaky roofs, use of humidifiers, extensive use of hot water indoors (laundering, cooking, bathing) without adequate exhaust venting for steam, damp basements or crawlspaces, houseplant water or aquarium leakage, indoor clothes drying, and unvented combustion appliances are all important sources of indoor moisture, and can encourage mold growth. Heavy condensation ("sweating") of windows, exterior walls or other cold objects indicates excessive moisture and inadequate venting.

Where colonies are extensive they can also produce enough spores, and by-products to be harmful to health. Many of the by-products of mold and mildew are irritating to skin, eyes and respiratory tracts. Some molds produce true allergic sensitization and allergic reactions in susceptible people. Some molds produce toxic by-products that could be harmful to skin, and poisonous if ingested or inhaled in quantity.

If you suspect that a property you are considering buying has any degree of mold, ask Pacific Northwest Building Inspections to include a Redmond mold inspection.
