Mold Testing Harrisburg Pa

Why You Need to Test Your Home for Mold in Harrisburg, Pa
Mold can be a serious problem. It can cause a severe allergic reaction in some sensitive to its toxic qualities. Mold can deteriorate air quality and cause respiratory problems. Skin rashes, red irritated eyes and a sore throat that won’t go away are just some of the symptoms of an allergic reaction to mold spores.

One of the first indicators that your home may have a mold problem is the “musty” odor. Mold growing in your home isn’t something you can ignore. Severe headaches, dizziness and memory loss is another indicator that there is toxic mold growing in your home. This is serious. Exposure to toxic mold could kill you.

There are three types of mold testing. Because some mold spores are airborne, air testing is done by collecting air samples in your home. Surface testing uses samples from surfaces such as drywall to test for toxic and non-toxic mold. Bulk testing utilizes materials in the home and studies them under a microscope.

Mold, left undetected, can also do serious damage to your home’s structure. Air vents and other places where moisture can seep in are vulnerable to mold. Mold can buckle your drywall and cause serious cracks in your home’s foundation.
