Mold Inspection Washington DC

DC Mold Detection

Mold inspections are a good precaution to take. For anybody that doesn’t know, mold tends to favor humid and moist areas. As anyone who has been in the area can attest, Washington, D.C.

is rather humid regardless of the time of year.

That means mold is an ever-present concern. While it might seem obvious for some, actually finding, tracking, and containing mold can be more difficult than people realize.

This is especially true in naturally humid and moist areas like DC.

Mold can damage homes, people, and pets. The spores spread in the air to affect lungs, while the mold itself will eat away at paint and wood to weaken a building and risk further damage and health issues.

What are the top causes of mold?

Leaking Pipes: Leaking water pipes or appliances can result in mold. The most common causes of pipe leaks are burst or frozen pipes, leaky valves and worn out washers.


Poor Ventilation
: Mold requires a surface to grow on, damp surfaces provide an ideal place for mold to grow plus the dark environment is a perfect breeding ground for mold spores.


Leaking Air-Conditioning System
: If you have an a/c system with a leak, mold can appear.

It is recommended that you get your air-conditioning system checked annually in order to make sure there are no problems with the system.


Improper Drainage
: Excess moisture on hard surfaces like concrete can cause water to work its way underneath floor tiles and up into walls where it mixes with organic materials.


Humid Environment
: If you live in an environment with rampant humid weather, there is the potential for mold spores to grow in your home.

Rainy climate, dampness and high humidity can all trigger increased mold growth inside of buildings.
