What is Mold?

What does Mold need to grow?
Mold needs water to grow, without water it cannot grow. Mold also needs food, oxygen and a temperature between 40 and 100 degrees F. Mold needs a damp or wet organic material to grow on. Some molds can get moisture from the air. All they need is a relative humidity above 80%. Mold is virtually everywhere.

Why do I need to know anything about Mold?
Mold can affect your health. It can also damage or destroy building materials. Molds sometimes make powerful chemicals called mycotoxins. Unfortunately some of these make people sick. It is possible for hidden mold to cause mold allergies in your home or building.

We do not do remediation work, that would be a conflict of interest!

A+ is strictly an inspection and testing company. We highly recommend an inspection and lab test before paying any money for remediation. If it is discovered that you need remediation, we will provide a list of certified professional companies that you may have the option to choose from. In the event remediation is necessary, always have a clearance test preformed, to ensure your work was done correctly.

We offer 7 levels of inspection:

  1. Mold Inspection & testing - Visual inspection with mold sampling (swab, lift tape, inner wall, air cassette)
  2. Mold Inspection with thermal infrared - Visual inspection, infrared scanning inside & out of building, with mold sampling (swab, lift tape, inner wall, air cassette)
  3. Mold Inspection, thermal infrared scan, mold sampling & Allergen sampling (pollens, dust mites, cockroaches, pet dander or biological pollutents)
  4. Mold Inspection, thermal infrared scan, mold & allergen sampling plus scanning for the presence of VOCs (volatile organic compounds).
