  2. Does the smell get stronger or worse when the property is closed up for a while?
  3. Have you had a water leak in the past?
  4. Do the inside of your windows get wet with condensation?
  5. Do you see mold growing on your belongings, inside closets on window frames?

San Clemente Mold Testing

Mold needs water to grow, moist air and dampness is all the water it takes for some types of mold to grow indoors. Mold can grow quickly, some mold types grow within 2 days of items and building materials getting wet.

There are many reasons other than an obvious water leak or flood to have a mold or indoor air quality inspection performed.

If you are buying property, we can help you find out if you need to be worried about mold or the air quality inside the building. Real estate is a huge investment and it is best to know as much about the property as you can before you sign those escrow papers. You don’t want to purchase a property and end up having the headaches of a mold problem or the additional expenses for unexpected mold repairs! We can also help you by preparing a mold prevention plan for your property.

If you are renting or leasing a property, you don’t want to move in and have to deal with the disturbance of having mold repairs done or even worse, your landlord doesn’t do the repairs at all and you have to move again and fight over your lease.

Let us give you peace of mind that your home, business or workplace has good indoor air quality.

Environmental Testing & Technology Inc., (ET&T), specializes in mold testing for all types of buildings in the areas of San Diego County and Orange County. We have been performing high quality mold inspections and testing since our local company was founded in 1986 in Encinitas, California.  We have inspected and mold tested apartments, condominium complexes, homes, schools, medical facilities, large and small businesses, hotels and resorts located in and around the San Clemente area. We have worked for homeowners, tenants, building owners, realtors, property management companies and lawyers to determine if there are mold or indoor air quality problems or not and what to do if there are.

We have done many jobs in the coastal areas of San Diego County and Orange County so we are very familiar with the coastal climate of the San Clemente, CA area from rain in the winter to the misty and foggy coastal eddy days.

In the winter months, water gets inside from leaking roofs, poorly sealed windows and improper drainage of rain water.  Sprinkler overspray and poor drainage are frequent causes of mold indoors because the exterior walls get wet leading to wet walls inside. Even though we think of the walls of the house as providing protection from outside, stucco and many building materials are porous and let moisture in. Once that moisture is inside, it is hard to get it back out.  For more information about sprinklers and drainage problems please check out the ET&T blog posts on our indoor air quality website.

In coastal areas we often find mold problems because of condensation. When we use water inside the building (showers, washing machines, dishwashers) the humidity inside builds up and opening up the windows for fresh air doesn’t help much because the outside air is humid too! We can help with a mold prevention program for these situations.
