Miami Mold Inspectors and Dogs

The American Society of Home Inspectors has estimated that approximately 38% of all homes in the United States contain mold. Scientists are currently conducting tests studies to determine whether some molds may be toxic to humans. While many molds can result in allergy-like symptoms, black mold, for example, has been linked to more serious illnesses that include lung problems, reduced cognitive skills, and death. Very young children, persons with suppressed immune systems, and the elderly may be considered to be at risk of serious illness if black mold is present.

Today, mold inspection services are turning to more and more ways of rooting out mold in suspicious environments. In fact, one Miami mold inspectors company has engaged the services of two very expensive dogs to sniff it out. While this sounds a little unusual, it has been a common practice in Europe for decades and has been a very successful method of detection.

Find Miami Mold Inspectors Online

If you suspect a mold problem in your home or work environment, you will be able to find several Miami mold companies on the Internet. These companies must employ certified mold inspectors according to Florida law. In addition, the inspectors may have significant experience in detecting the specific types of mold that are common to Southern Florida.

With the number of mold-related lawsuits increasing every year and all the publicity about "sick" buildings, more and more people are getting into the mold inspection industry. Look for a company that has been around for a while, that offers a money back guarantee on its services, and one that does not offer to provide remediation services to its inspection customers. Note that you can purchase mold detection kits online; however, a professional inspection is a better option if you are buying a home or if you already suspect a serious mold infestation.
