Miami has warm temperatures and plenty of humidity all year round, making it a popular place to live and relax. It's also the ideal climate for mold to thrive in. Because of the heat and humidity, Florida residents often google 'mold testing near me' because many know that where there is moisture, there is a high chance for mold growth.
Some people often believe they have sinus or hay fever problems. They are forever blowing their noses and rubbing their watery, red, itchy, eyes. But did you know that being exposed to mold can cause these same symptoms? Even worse, black mold or Stachybotrys is often associated with headaches, Aspergillosis (fungal lung infection), and can even lead to cancer. Mold detection can help you better understand and narrow down the causes of such symptoms.
Maybe you recently purchased or are looking to buy a home and wish to see if it has mold. If that proves to be true, it would be a valid reason to cancel your contract and is something you can discuss with our professional mold testing specialist. Knowing if a house has mold, you could ask the seller to reduce the price or even hold them responsible to fix the mold issues. And if you're planning on selling your property, having a certified report showing that it's mold-free can increase its market value.
Mold spores can adversely affect the indoor air quality of a home. If you suspect your house has a mold problem, our certified mold specialist can perform an air quality test to find out for sure.

If black mold is discovered after black mold tests, it will need urgent remediation. You might be shocked to learn that mold can hide and grow in places you never dreamed of - behind the HVAC vents, in the walls, behind pictures, etc. Even your air conditioner can be a breeding ground for mold. It's important to have the air ducts cleaned regularly to avoid mold spreading like cancer throughout the entire house using the duct system.
Mold testing involves a mold specialist taking samples of the indoor air or from surfaces where mold is suspected to be growing, like those dark spots on the ceiling or walls. The collected samples are then analyzed by an independent lab where it will determine the type of mold present and its concentration levels in your indoor air. This mold identification process will not only determine if there's hidden mold but also let you know if it's toxic or not.
Mold inspection involves a certified mold inspector visually checking your property for signs of mold or the moisture problems that commonly come with that.
