Call Rescom Restoration today to begin the process of getting your home back to healthy living conditions. Our professional team uses advanced methods to find and remove any toxic mold while keeping your house intact.
At the mold inspection, we collect air and contact samples to determine the presence of mold in your home. Air testing will determine the presence of spores, even if the mold isn’t visible yet. While you may not see mold, these spores can float through the air and cause respiratory issues, allergic reactions, and general fatigue and illness. We will also take contact samples of any visible mold that can be analyzed to determine the extent of mold contamination in your home. This initial task is important in determining the source and severity of any mold-related infestation. By taking these samples, we’ll be able to locate mold in any part of your home.
Once mold samples have been collected, we transport them to an offsite laboratory for examination. This independent third-party laboratory will make sure the results you receive are completely unbiased and won’t lead to unnecessary mold treatment. The mold spores we collect are so small that the lab must examine them under a microscope to determine the type of mold and ultimately the extent of its growth in your Portland home. This process generally takes 4 to 5 business days and will help us to determine the method of treatment to pursue in removing the mold. By analyzing the findings, the lab will ultimately help us determine the level of urgency needed for remediation; if the mold is discovered to be highly allergenic or toxic, we will help you in taking immediate steps to remove it.
