There Is No Such Thing As Toxic Mold

Mold Testing CompaniesSome mold testing companies, and certainly the media, get very excited about the idea of “toxic mold.”  The name alone is certainly alarming enough, and it is often accompanied by enthusiastic scare tactics.  However, at Advanced Mold Diagnostics, we are convinced that honesty, rather than fear, is a better way to do business.

There is no such thing as “toxic mold.”  Rather, some species of mold have the ability to produce toxic by-products.  However, with over 100,000 species of mold in the world, most of it is not going to pose a health threat for generally healthy individuals.  Mold does have the ability to create an allergic reaction in any of us, but those symptoms are most aggravated in individuals with preexisting conditions such as those who are asthmatic or immunocompromised.

Should you still talk with a professional if you find a large area of mold in your home?  Absolutely.  But do you need to panic about “toxic mold”?  Not at all.

You Might Be Able to Fix This Yourself

Many mold testing companies, including Advanced Mold Diagnostics, also provide mold remediation services.  There are a number of advantages to this comprehensive approach, including being able to work with one company throughout the entire process.  However, some of these companies may take advantage of that connection, and you may find you are sold a remediation service for a problem which could have been handled on your own.

At Advanced Mold Diagnostics, however, we are strong supporters of clients who are interested in taking on manageable mold problems for themselves.  When this is a viable option, DIY mold removal can save you thousands of dollars! We want to help you to succeed and will gladly offer recommendations in equipment, cleaning materials, and other supplies.  However, we do advise that you contact a professional assessment company first to determine whether or not you are really facing a manageable project.

Not All Mold Testing Companies Screen Before Scheduling

On a similar note, when you choose a mold testing company to contact for help in your home or at your business, make sure that you look for one who screens customers prior to scheduling a professional assessment.  At Advanced Mold Diagnostics, we find that our over the phone screening process is an important step for many clients, as it helps us, and them, to see if their problem really is in need of a professional.

If your over the phone screening reveals that professional assessment is necessary, we will happily schedule an inspection so we can get to work on your problem as soon as possible.  However, if the conversation reveals that you will probably be able to handle the problem on your own, without a test or inspection, then we will let you know!
