There are 3 different testing methods: 1) indoor air quality to test for mold spores, 2) the AC/heating mold sampling tests the air from a forced air heating and air conditioning unit, and 3) surface mold sampling which test mold that is already growing on a surface. If you suspect you are being affected by mold in the Doylestown, PA area, you can have a mold inspection to confirm whether you are or are not. Sooner is better.

Recently while working on a water damage claim in Glenside, PA, we were called upon by a homeowner to confirm her suspicion that there was a leak in one of her pipes inside the wall. While there was no dripping water, she noticed a musty odor coming from one area of her kitchen, below the bathroom as well as some discoloration on the ceiling. Well, she was right. There was a very small leak in the pipe under the sink in the bathroom which had caused damage to the sheetrock between this bathroom and the kitchen ceiling. Using a moisture meter and years of experience, we were able to figure out where the water was coming from. There are other signs that you may have a water issue that you cannot see. We will discuss those later.
