MOLD IN THE NEWS

 
Mold is to construction material what cancer is to the human body. 
A mold inspection and mold testing from Advanced IAQ Diagnostics in Portland can help find mold problems early and avoid extensive mold damage.
Like cancer, mold can grow for a long time before being detected. Left unchecked, mold can cause significant property damage.

For that reason alone, if your property has experienced a flood or other water intrusion event, it would be wise to have a professional mold inspection performed.

If you smell unexplained musty odors, or feel ill indoors but fine when you leave, it would be wise to have a mold inspection performed. Even without the obvious red flags, having a mold inspection performed on your property every 12 to 24 months can protect your investment from extensive, preventable damage caused by water intrusion and mold growth.

In addition to being proactive in protecting your real estate investments, there are other very good reasons to inspect for mold. Indoor mold growth presents a number of health risks to the people and animals dwelling in moldy structures. Indoor mold growth can negatively impact indoor air quality, resulting in a multitude of adverse health effects. Mold is one of the leading causes of asthma, ear-nose-&-throat infections, respiratory ailments, lung infections, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, and other infectious diseases.

Certified Mold Inspectors at Advanced IAQ Diagnostics can help with the unknown.
Most of the people who call a mold inspector are not sure if they have a mold problem or not, but they suspect they do and most of the time their suspicions are right.

But the uncertainty of not knowing if mold growing in your home, if you or your loved ones are at risk, or what to do about it if a mold problem is found, can be intimidating. And fear of the unknown can make you particularly vulnerable to mold scam artists, of which there is no shortage in the Pacific Northwest.

If you suspect you have a mold problem, there are many good reasons to call Advanced IAQ Diagnostics first. In addition to our inspectors holding the highest accredited certifications available, one of the most important reasons to choose Advanced IAQ Diagnostics is because we are not in the mold removal business. Why is that important?

When you hire a mold inspector, above all else it is important to know that you can absolutely trust that person to have your best interest in mind. And the only way you can know that for sure is if your inspector does not benefit in any way whatsoever from any discoveries made in the course of his inspection.

Mold remediation (removal) is a very lucrative business. And mold inspectors who also perform mold removal have a great deal gain by finding mold problems. It is never in your best interest to have a mold inspector who motivated to find highly profitable mold removal jobs for himself. In fact, it is a conflict of interest and in some states (unfortunately not Oregon yet) it is illegal to perform both mold inspections and mold remediation work.

Why take chances? 
If you suspect your home or office has a mold problem, the first responsible step is to find out exactly what you're dealing with. The best way to do that with absolute confidence is to make sure your inspection company is not in the mold removal business.

Advanced IAQ Diagnostics is not in the mold removal business. Our one and only interest is in providing our clients with reliable, accurate, unbiased reports.

HIDDEN MOLD

The worst mold is the mold you don't see. Indoor mold growth can grow undetected for a long time before you see it. Mold flourishes, lurking under carpets, spreading inside walls, floors, ceilings, and in heating and air conditioning vents.
After experiencing symptoms commonly associated with toxic mold exposure, an Escondido family called Advanced IAQ Diagnostics to inspect their upscale, golf community home. The home was only one year old at the time.

In Portland mold can grow inside walls and under floors long before it is visible.

Though there was no visible evidence of mold growth, the smell of mold was evident as soon as you walk in the door. The family had become used to the odor to the point that they couldn't smell it, but they were told of mold odors by friends and family visitors.

A poorly sealed shower door can leak small amounts of water that over time can become a big mold problem. Stachybotrys, aka black mold or toxic mold, is commonly associated with indoor water intrusion issues. Advanced IAQ Diagnostics is Portland's #1 Certified Mold Inspector.

Certified Mold Inspectors are trained to locate the source of mold and water intrusion. This problem was traced to an improperly caulked shower door which caused the door track to fill with water and overflow onto the floor.

Stachybotrys is the mold most often referred to as black mold or toxic mold and often present whenever construction materials get wet, especially drywall.

Closer examination revealed Stachybotrys Mold growing rampant behind the wood base boards, up inside the walls and under the carpeting.
