Mold Testing

If you suspect mold based on signs you’re experiencing, you might wonder if you need a mold inspection or mold testing.

This is where Pinnelli Mold Pros differs from the leading mold testing companies in the Chicagoland area.

We are 100% honest with our customers.

We won’t push a mold test if we don’t think it’s necessary. However, if we see the presence black mold, we’ll discuss mold remediation options to remove and repair the area to make your home safe again.

We start with a mold inspection, and if, during the inspection, we suspect the presence of mold, we’ll run accurate and fast mold testing to help you determine the next steps.

Mold testing determines if you have mold and, if so, the type. Our process is environmentally friendly, and all our instruments are approved for certified mold inspections. We send your samples out to highly-rated third-party laboratories that provide us with in-depth reports.

We'll have the reports within 24 - 72 hours and discuss the lab results with you immediately. We ensure you understand the types of mold in your home and what the effects may be. If your home has mold, we can review your mold remediation options to remove, repair, and, if necessary, rebuild the area.

Can I remove mold myself?

You can cause more problems in your home by trying to do DIY mold removal. At Pinnelli Mold Pros, we don’t recommend any of the ‘popular mold removal methods,’ such as bleach or ammonia. Instead, let the trained professionals with the proper equipment and non-toxic products properly and safely remove mold from your home.

Does mold need to be removed immediately?

The sooner you remove mold from your home, the better it is for your house and family. Mold grows within 24 - 48 hours of water exposure and multiplies fast. If you don’t fix the problem immediately, you could have a much larger problem.

Is breathing mold and mildew bad for your health?

Mold exposure can cause health problems in some individuals. But, of course, mold exposure isn’t good for anyone. Still, it’s especially bad for the immuno-compromised or anyone with underlying health conditions or weak immune systems, such as infants and older adults.

What are the signs of mold sickness?

Everyone produces different symptoms, but some common issues of mold exposure include the following:

  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Respiratory issues
  • Bloody noses
  • Stuffy or runny noses
  • Itchy or dry skin
What is the difference between mold removal and mold remediation?

Mold removal is the removal of only the mold from the surface, which Pinnelli Mold Pros handles with non-toxic products to eliminate the mold. However, mold remediation removes the contaminated material from your home. At Pinneli Mold Pros, we isolate the infected areas before remediating them to ensure it doesn’t spread into non-affected areas.

Is it safe to live in your home after mold remediation?

When you work with a reputable company like Pinnelli Mold Pros, you can rest assured that your home is sanitized and safe from mold spores after our mold removal or remediation services.
