Fast, Accurate Mold Testing to Nip Mold in the Bud in Sterling, VA
The longer mold resides in your home, the more harm it can cause. It starts with subtle signs — a musty smell or the aftereffects of flooding. You might not see the spores for some time. But the longer mold lasts in your home, the more it can spread, hurting the health of your family and even wearing down on your walls and ceiling until they eventually collapse.
That’s why it’s so important to root mold out early, and you can with the proper mold test. Mold tests from Valor Mold are fast and 99% accurate, so you can confirm the presence of mold and quickly work to remove it from your home.
How To Spot Mold in Your Sterling, VA Home
As we mentioned, mold begins from a subtle place. You won’t see it right away, and by the time you do see it, it’s likely spread to some extent. But there are a few other signs you can watch out for when you’re worried you might have mold. To begin, keep an eye out after a flood or bad storm, as that is when mold first starts to form. A few other signs include:
A musty smell in the home
A damp spot in a dark corner
Warping or cracking, as well as peeling paint
Dark grout between shower tiles
Sniffling or cold symptoms that you only experience at home
Dark or discolored spots on the walls
If you notice any of these signs in your home, but especially if you see more than one at a time, it’s a good time to schedule a mold test.
Mold Testing From Valor Mold Leaves No Room For Doubt
We use one of 70 Instascope machines for our mold tests because they offer 100% accuracy every time. How do they manage to do so? Using UV lighting and algorithms, they measure the level of mold in your home compared to the expected levels of mold outside the home. If mold is higher than expected, you’ll know in minutes. Results show as one of the three following:
Green – only expected levels of airborne mold concentration
Yellow – moderately higher levels of airborne mold concentration
Red – significantly higher levels of airborne mold concentration
In addition to fast, accurate testing, we’re also affordable. We can test up to 15 rooms for a flat rate of $650, well under the national average of $650. Each additional room after 15 is just $15. We also offer financing plans so you can fit your mold testing into your budget.
