Mold Inspections in Montgomery County

Mold & Biological Contamination Services in Lehigh County, Northampton County, Bucks County, Mercer County, Burlington County, Chester County, Norristown, & Philadelphia 

Maintaining a healthy indoor environment is important in workplaces, buildings, and homes. Biological contaminants in workplaces include bacteria, mold, mildew, fungi, viruses, dust mites, pollen, spores, insect frass, and rodent dander. In homes, pets contribute to indoor contaminants with their dander and other biological excretions.

Maintaining a healthy environment includes minimizing the amount of biological contamination. These "bioaerosols" are extremely small living organisms or fragments of living things suspended in the air.

Most commonly, these bioaerosols and their sources are:

  • Pollens originating from plants
  • Viruses transmitted by people and animals
  • Bacteria carried by people, animals, soil, and plant debris
  • Bacteria and fungus growing in air conditioning equipment, humidifier reservoirs, dehumidifier drip pans, toilets, ice machines, showerheads, traps, water-damaged building materials, and crawl spaces
  • Dust mites (one of the most powerful biological allergens) living in carpets, bedding, and upholstered furniture
  • Animal dander and excretions (saliva, urine, feces) introduced by household pets

All of these aerosols can be easily transported and circulated by building or home ventilation systems. Additionally, ductwork and air handling systems can easily become breeding grounds and distribution pathways for bacteria, mold, fungi, mildew, and other biological contaminants.

Mold and mildew originate from spores, which exist in the air around you. Under the right conditions, spores settle and form colonies. The right conditions are moisture, warmth, and a source of nutrition (such as wood or paper). The classic example is cardboard boxes, books, or wood stored in a damp basement.

Eliminating moisture sources and reducing humidity are the primary methods used to control mold. Water-damaged materials, wet surfaces, or standing water serve as breeding grounds for molds, mildews, bacteria, and insects. In the event of flooding or water intrusion, quick drying or disposal of all “food source” materials is important.
