Mold Testing and Inspection | Topeka, KS

As a Topeka resident, you work hard and enjoy coming home every day to the comfort and safety of your house. You like to leave the stresses of each day behind you and just unwind in peace. One job that no Topeka resident wants to tackle is testing and inspecting their home or buildings for mold.

That said, mold is definitely an issue for many Topekan structures, partly because of the humid climate here in Kansas and partly because of the storm activity, coupled with many homes and buildings having basements. This creates ideal mold-growing conditions. Fortunately, there is a solution.

Where Does Mold Grow?

About 70% of homes are estimated to have mold, which only takes about 48-72 hours to form after water damage. If the area containing the mold is larger than 3 square feet, you will definitely want to have professional help since having that much mold in your home greatly increases the risk of mold infection.

Mold grows in basements and can grow in crawl spaces and over your living quarters in attics. Excess moisture causes high humidity in your crawl space.

What Damage Does Mold Cause?

Even if the water doesn’t damage your structure immediately, the resulting mold compromises the structural integrity of the building, so it is best to take care of the problem as soon as possible. Water can also enter the attic via leaks in the roof or condensation from improper ventilation (ventilation that leads to the attic rather than going outside). Basements, attics, and crawl spaces are a “mold trifecta” for buildings since mold commonly grows in those three areas.

What is Mold Testing and Inspection?

Mold testing is the process of identifying the presence of mold by collecting and analyzing samples from different areas. Our mold testing in Topeka, KS, involves advanced equipment and techniques to collect and analyze samples from various areas of your property, such as the air, surfaces, and hidden spaces.

Mold inspection identifies potential mold problems by thoroughly assessing the property to identify visible mold growth and potential moisture sources that may encourage mold growth. The inspector will examine various areas of the property, such as the walls, ceilings, floors, and HVAC system, for any signs of mold growth, water damage, or other moisture issues. If you suspect, please contact us for a reliable and comprehensive mold inspection in Topeka, KS.

How Does Lamunyon Tackle With Mold Problems?

We have a multi-step approach to our mold inspection process. We start with a visual inspection, followed by digital documentation (taking pictures of the problem areas so you can see what we saw during the mold evaluation). From there, we can use thermal imaging (infrared cameras) to detect temperature differences in building materials. We do this because wet building materials are almost always cooler than dry ones. This provides us with the needed information to find mold.

Once completed, we map out the moisture in your home (locating the building materials that are damp enough to support mold growth). We compile all of this information for you in an easy-to-understand format and provide an expected scope of work for the mold remediation process.

Here are some other test options that we offer:

1. Airborne and Surface Mold Testing

The most effective way to determine if you have a serious mold infestation on your hand is to test the air for mold spores. We will also use bio tape or mold swabs to conduct a surface test. Once we have the sample, we will send it to our laboratory. Please allow a few business days for the test results to be processed.

Please note that these tests are optional and are available upon request. Testing fees will be discussed prior to testing.
