Test for Mold
We are expert Environmental Consultants serving Delaware and the Tri-State area using the most advanced technologies for testing for mold in residential and commercial buildings. Miles Environmental Consulting can ensure that your indoor environment is safe, so you can breath easy.
If you suspect that mold growth might be a factor in your home or workplace, protect your health and the health of others by calling Miles Environment Consulting for a Mold Test today. Often people don’t know that there is a small leak in the roof, faulty flashing in a window or a small crack in the foundation. These are all invitations for mold spores to move in and filtrate, often in unseen areas.
Our state-of-the-art ‘Detection Tek’ provides instant real-time sampling and analysis of the indoor air quality. It is far superior to traditional testing methods, as we analyze 99% of all particles samples vs. 1%. We analyze and inspect every room in your home or office.
Solving Your Mold Issues
Once we evaluate your environment, we will let you know what the best course of action is for your particular mold growth issue. Simply cleaning up the mold is not usually the final answer. The questions we ask is how did the mold get there in the first place and how can we prevent it from returning.
You can trust us to mitigate and be proactive to all your environmental issues. We have been serving Delaware and the surrounding Tri-State area for the last 3 decades and are one of the ten companies across the country that are qualified to inspect, test, consult and remediate bioaerosols.
Is There Mold in Your Environment?
Mold spores thrive outdoors, but often hitch a ride into homes, schools, offices and institutions via air currents, dust and dirt on shoes and clothing and in water that enters through cracks in walls and foundations. Once indoors, they can pretty much proliferate anywhere that moisture exists.
There is lots of evidence that all molds, not just black mold (Stachybotrys chartarum), could potentially cause rashes, nausea, dizziness, headaches, allergies and asthma. Molds come in thousands of different strains and colors; black, brown, green, yellow, blue or pink.
How Dangerous is Mold?
People react to mold differently. Those that are sensitive to molds may experience nasal congestion, throat irritation, coughing, wheezing, eye irritation and skin irritation when exposed to mold. People with mold allergies can have more severe reactions and those with Immune deficiencies or chronic lung illnesses, may get serious life-threatening respiratory infections.
People exposed to dangerous levels of mold have the potential to develop health issues and symptoms such as allergic reactions, asthma and other moderate to severe respiratory conditions. While there is no practical way to free an indoor environment of all molds and mold spores, the best way to control indoor mold growth is to properly control the moisture levels.
How to Prevent Mold
Decreasing the indoor humidity to 30-60% can help to prevent unsafe mold growth. If mold has become an issue in your home or place of work, get in touch with Miles Environmental Consulting experts. We have state-of-the-art mold testing equipment that can help to test, contain and remediate mold growth. We are full-service environmental specialists that helps improve the Indoor Air Quality of any residential or commercial environment through tried and true methods that can get you breathing easier.
Keep in mind that mold can take over any environment quite quickly. Mold moves in within 24 hours after a water leak, if waterlogged areas are not dried properly. Preemptive measures can help to mitigate the dangers.
