Homeowners who suddenly find themselves with a mold problem are often unsure of what to do and where to turn. Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation out there leading to misspent money. For objective general information about indoor mold, certain federal agencies, especially the EPA and CDC, have published information to help homeowners understand their mold problem. Their staff has issued helpful guidelines that allow homeowners to make an educated decision and avoid being exploited by unscrupulous businesses. But what about your specific issues?
As your local mold expert in Central NJ, Mold Solutions by Cowleys can help you choose the right course of action for your particular needs. It is our top priority to resolve your mold problem efficiently, effectively, and most important, permanently.
According to the EPA, NO! Their official website states:
"In most cases, if visible mold growth is present, sampling is unnecessary. Since no EPA or other federal limits have been set for mold or mold spores, sampling cannot be used to check a building's compliance with federal mold standards."
Based on these federal recommendations, Mold Solutions by Cowleys does not offer or recommend mold testing. ANY type of indoor mold growth is potentially dangerous (not just toxic black mold) and ALL mold must be removed regardless of quantity. When it comes to indoor mold, there is no such thing as either "safe" mold or a safe threshold quantity of mold. If something in your home looks like mold or smells like mold, it needs to be treated - and that goes double if a family member is suffering from chronic respiratory problems.
