The dangers of hidden mold spores have gained widespread media attention in recent years. Molds produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances. While everyone is affected differently by mold, people with existing respiratory concerns, such as asthma, are likely to be extremely sensitive to it.
Health problems that are commonly attributed to mold exposure include:
- Memory lapses
- Digestive problems
- Chronic aches and pains
- Itching or irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and skin
- Sinus infections and sinusitis
- Skin rashes
- Upper and lower respiratory infections
If your home or place of business is found to have unusual levels of mold, it can be removed and brought back to its original condition. If water intrusion has caused the problem, it must be remedied prior to the mold removal, or the mold will grow back. Advance Restoration Remediation offers complete mold inspection, remediation and post-clearance testing services, as well as water intrusion solutions, to ensure the thorough, permanent removal of any mold that may be detected.

Mold Inspection Services
When the inspector arrives at the property location, he identifies himself to the client as an Advance Restoration Remediation inspector and proceeds to assess the outer areas of the property. Advance Restoration Remediation will conduct a free visual mold inspection of the property prior to any testing or remediation.
The visual inspection for the area outside of the property consists of:
- Inspecting the foundation of the property for cracks
- Inspecting any cracks on the property itself
- Inspecting the grading of the property
- Inspecting the drainage spouts and making sure they draining away from the house
The visual inspection for the area inside of the property consists of:
- Inspecting all areas inside the property (only areas the client allocates)
- Inspecting the HVAC system (if applicable)
- Inspecting all areas with a Protemeter
- Inspecting basement/mold/attic mold/dry wall mold (if applicable)
After a thorough inspection, the certified mold inspector will give his analysis of the situation. If there is no visible evidence of mold contamination and no water damage, the inspector will ask the client if they would like to have further analysis of the situation, otherwise there is not enough sufficient evidence of mold contamination. If there are visible signs of mold contamination or if there are signs of water damage, the inspector will suggest that the mold be tested.
