Mold Testing and Removal Port Jefferson
Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality directly affects your health and can lead to serious health issues if it is compromised. Many pollutants have two to five times higher concentrations indoors than outdoors. To help alleviate this problem, Mold Authority performs air quality testing to root out any problems. We look for any contaminants that may restrict breathing such as lead, mold, asbestos, bacteria, carbon monoxide, and common allergens. Whether you need help for your home or office building, you can rely on Mold Authority for all your air quality needs.
Mold Growth Areas
Mold tends to thrive in areas of high humidity or where there is water damage such as leaky pipes, windows, or roofs. Damp indoor areas such as attics, crawl spaces, bathrooms, and basements are also prime breeding grounds for mold spores. Mold is very common indoors because it spreads so easily when it releases spores into the air. Mold can cause serious problems for homeowners because there are more than 100 types of mold that can be hazardous to your health.

Mold and Health Issues
One of the difficulties in dealing with mold is that there exists no federal or national standard defining what levels can be risky to our health. This problem is further complicated by the fact that people respond to mold differently. Typically, your indoor mold level should be lower than the outdoor air you breathe. Unfortunately, mold growth often occurs inside duct work or behind walls, so your home may have a high mold count even if you can’t see any evidence of it.
Some of the most common health issues surrounding mold exposure include coughing and wheezing; eye, nose, and throat irritation; headaches; rashes; and fatigue. Sometimes prolonged exposure can lead to more severe symptoms such as nausea and bleeding in the nose and lungs. These issues can be compounded for people with respiratory problems such as asthma or allergies. If mold spores are inhaled into their lungs, they can cause allergic reactions.
Inspection and Testing
Mold Authority’s mold inspection process starts with a thorough examination of your home or office building to uncover any problem areas, especially if there is moisture or humidity present. We collect both indoor and outdoor air and surface samples to be sent for independent laboratory analysis. The test results can tell us the type of mold present, whether it is toxic, and how much is present and why.
Afterwards, we compile a report for our clients which includes the lab results, photos, environmental guidelines, a remediation plan, and preventive maintenance tips. Mold Authority’s clients value our inspection reports because they include a comprehensive evaluation of the home or building in question; a detailed walk-through; a sampling of air, substance, or surface; and the ensuing report.
