The Importance of Mold/Indoor Air Quality Testing

At Reliable Home Services LLC, we understand the significance of maintaining a healthy indoor environment. Mold and poor indoor air quality can have detrimental effects on both your property and your health. That's why we offer comprehensive mold and indoor air quality testing services to ensure your peace of mind. Here are few important facts about Mold and Moisture:


  • Mold is a type of fungus that grows in damp or humid conditions and can be found both indoors and outdoors. It can grow on a variety of surfaces, including wood, drywall, and wallpaper.

  • The key to preventing mold growth in the home is controlling moisture levels and promptly addressing any water leaks or spills. It’s also important to ventilate areas of the home that are prone to moisture, such as the bathroom and kitchen.

  • Mold can cause a range of health problems, including respiratory issues, allergies, and asthma. It can also cause structural damage if it is allowed to grow unchecked.

  • If you find mold in a home, it’s important to have it professionally remediated to protect the health of the homeowners and prevent further damage to the property. This includes not only removing the visible mold growth, but also resolving the underlying moisture issue to prevent future mold growth.

  • “Mildew” is often used interchangeably with mold, but true mildews are actually plant pathogens and do not grow readily on building materials. If you come across what appears to be mildew in a home inspection, it’s important to properly identify and address it as mold.

  • Addressing moisture and mold issues early can save homeowners an average of $5,000 in remediation costs, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
