Mold Inspection and Testing Fort Myers
If you’re buying a new home in Fort Myers and need a mold inspection or mold testing done give us a call. For people who may think they have mold problems in their current home its always a good idea to have a mold test done as well. Living in Fort Myers, the humid weather and rain can cause your home to develop mold issues. With heavy summertime rain, leaks can also develop in your roof and, in turn, lead to water behind walls and in ceilings – this is one of the leading causes of creating mold problems. We’ve seen that with hurricanes Irma, Wilma and Charley. Water damage can occur even without a weather event. If you’ve experienced flooding or suffered water damage, and you need mold inspection and mold testing of your property call Mr Dry Services today.
Will a mold inspection and mold testing reveal the type of mold in my home?
There are many different types of mold, and a proper mold inspection and mold testing will identify the kind of mold in your home. Some kinds of mold are more harmful than others. Toxic molds like Black Mold, (Stachybotrys) and Aspergillus are especially harmful and require special treatments to eliminate.

If you have had water damage or suspect there might be mold growing in your home, contact Mr Dry Services and schedule your appointment for mold inspection and testing.

What Are Some of the Harmful Health Effects of Mold?
There are different types of mold and some are more dangerous than others. But all molds should be treated as dangerous and eliminated. Black mold is considered very dangerous and can lead to major respiratory problems. The elderly and babies are particularly susceptible to health hazards caused by mold. Even pets suffer from the health hazards of mold. People with chronic respiratory conditions or those with weaker immune systems are extremely vulnerable. Here are some of the symptoms that would indicate you have a mold problem, even if you can’t see or smell it.
- Skin or eye irritation/blurred vision/tearing eyes
- Allergic reactions/skin rashes
- Migraines/headaches and joint pain
- Sinus congestion/asthma like symptoms/hacking cough
- General fatigue or feeling of weakness
- A metal taste in your mouth
- Body temperature swings
- Feeling disoriented or a feeling of memory loss
- Abdominal pain/bloating/diarrhea
Why You Should be Concerned About Mold
Mold can grow at a fast and rapid pace in a few short days after water damage occurs. When you can see signs of mold or smell the odor of mold you are dealing potentially with millions of mold spores. The negative effects of mold to the structure of your home are bad, but the health hazards associated with mold in your home or business are far more dangerous.
If you’ve experienced water damage of any kind, trying to deal with the aftermath by yourself may not be enough to avoid the harmful effects of mold growth. What would be a simple clean up job today could evolve in to a significant mold or structural problem in the months ahead if not identified and treated properly. DIY kits are not enough and are not as accurate as testing done by professionals. If you see some indication of mold it’s highly likely that there is mold in your property that you can’t see. And that’s why you need a professional.
