At All Pro Restoration Services, we work with homeowners every day who have experienced water damage situations of all scopes and sizes. It is because of our years of experience in this area that we encourage all new homeowners to have a thorough mold testing in Miami done before they purchase a new home or after a major water event.
While there are certainly some home projects that are completely reasonable to take care of yourself, mold testing in Miami is one thing that should always be left up to the professionals. Here are some of the pros and cons of hiring professionals versus doing it yourself that you may not have thought about before.
Get A Complete Sampling
When you undertake mold testing in Miami on your own, you may go to a home improvement store and pick up a mold test kit. This is a petri dish that you set in your home to collect samples. You then send the samples to the lab for analysis. The first problem with at-home mold test kits is that they simply cannot do the robust complete job that a home inspection can do.
Achieve Results More Efficiently
One of the other problems with mold test kits is inefficiency. You send in your test kit and after shipping and handling, several days or even weeks may have passed before you get your results back. Mold can grow and spread quite a bit in that amount of time, which can exacerbate the problem or even start new ones.
Benefit From The Latest Information
Picking anything up off the shelf at a store doesn’t tell you how long the product has been sitting there, and it doesn’t tell you how long it’s good for. Unlike food products, off the shelf mold test kits don’t come with an expiration date stamped on the packaging.
Essentially, buying a mold test kit at the store means you have no idea when you’re purchasing a mold test kit how long it has been sitting on the shelf and what contaminants it’s already come in contact with as it’s been sitting there. When you work with professionals for mold inspection and remediation, you benefit from the most current technology and information.
Get Great Advice And Suggestions
An effective home mold test kit may do a really great job at telling you if you have a mold problem in your house. What it cannot do is provide guidance and advice going forward as to how to prevent the problem in the future and what you can do about it now to make sure the mold situation is completely resolved. This way, you’re not just taking care of the problem temporarily but taking measures to ensure your home is safer and healthier well into the future.
If you suspect your home has mold, then the best next step you can take is to work with a mold remediation company. Our dedicated team at All Pro Restoration Services will work tirelessly to make sure you get it taken care of and that you have one less major thing to worry about at home.
