Mold Inspection & Testing

Do You Think You Have Mold?

Call Today for Mold Inspection & Testing

If you think you may have mold in your home or business, contact Southwest Restoration for mold inspection and testing. Small amounts of mold spores are present in most homes and businesses and can go unnoticed.  Many times, mold is hidden, growing in your ceiling or walls, with no visible signs it is present. By the time you start feeling the impact of mold on your health, the mold has been growing for a while and will multiply every day.  Exposure to higher levels of mold in your home or business can cause a variety of health issues which include headaches, asthma symptoms, disorientation, nose bleeds, fatigue, weakness, and more.  It can also cause structural damage to your property. Roofs, pipes, walls, or any area that has had a water intrusion or a leak is at risk for producing mold. If you suspect you have a mold issue do not wait, act today!  Southwest Restoration can help! Established in 1988, we have provided mold inspection, mold testing, and mold remediation to hundreds, if not thousands of customers in Port Charlotte, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Punta Gorda, Lake Suzy North Port, Venice, Sarasota, Arcadia, and the surrounding areas.  

Why Should You be Concerned About Mold?

Mold can grow at a fast and rapid pace. Once mold is present, it can spread through your home or business within 48 – 72 hours. There are different types of mold and some are more dangerous than others. But all molds should be treated as dangerous and eliminated. Black mold is considered very dangerous and can lead to major respiratory problems. The elderly and babies are particularly susceptible to health hazards caused by mold. Even pets suffer from the health hazards of mold. People with chronic respiratory conditions or those with weaker immune systems are extremely vulnerable. Exposure to higher levels of mold in your home or business can cause a variety of health issues and cause structural damage to your property.

If Mold is Found in my Home or Business, should I Treat the Mold Issues Myself?

There can be a lot of confusion and anxiety around this question, hire a professional company or try to and clean the mold yourself.  Some people say try and clean it yourself and others say never attempt to clean it yourself. When considering the best way to remove mold from your home or business, it is best to hire a professional company to handle the remediation for you. If mold is growing in your walls or ceilings, there may be no visible signs of mold growth and you will not be aware it exists.  Contacting a mold remediation contractor will ensure that all the mold is removed, both visible and hidden. Additional reasons to leave mold removal up to professionals include:

  • You can make the situation worse
  • You may miss areas of hidden mold
  • You may have an allergic reaction
  • You need proper equipment to remove the mold
  • You need the right personal protective gear

Should I have Mold Inspection and Testing Done before Purchasing a Home? An Unoccupied Property?  A Foreclosure?

Yes!  There is no way of knowing what if any water damage has occurred in the past.  If the structure was impacted by water damage and not treated professionally, the probability for high levels of mold is elevated.  With the tropical climate associated with Southwest Florida, a property that has been unoccupied for any period, could have mold due high levels of moisture, humidity, and heat.

As a part-time resident of Florida I hired Southwest Restoration to repair water damage and make some updates to my condo. I was extremely happy with the results and the professional way they dealt with me. They found mold that a previous company did not and the upgrades I requested were done exactly as I wished. Even though I had to leave and go back to Indiana for a while, they always kept me informed of what was going on. It was refreshing to know I could trust people in my condo while I was not there. The office always got back to me within 24 hours if I called them. These people are the BEST
