Mold Testing & Remediation Services in South Carolina

Mold Testing: Not Always Necessary to Eliminate the Problem

Contrary to what some may assert, mold testing is often an unnecessary step. Authoritative entities like the CDC and other governmental agencies typically do not endorse routine mold testing. Their recommendation is straightforward: prompt removal of visible mold. Be wary of contractors who might persuade you into superfluous services. At Kingsley Water Restoration Services, we offer both mold testing and mold remediation services. If you can see visible mold, we will gladly skip the testing and go immediately to mold remediation to eliminate your mold infestation as quickly as possible.

Regulations and Expertise in Mold Remediation for South Carolina Customers

It’s important to recognize that mold remediation is not regulated by either the federal government or the state of South Carolina. This unregulated environment means any company can easily obtain an online certification and claim expertise. However, genuine proficiency in mold remediation requires stringent adherence to the IICRC S520 guidelines, a benchmark for quality and safety in the industry. At Kingsley Water Restoration Services, our technicians adhere to IICRC S520 guidelines.

Common Locations We Often Find Mold in Homes

Mold thrives in damp, dark, and poorly ventilated areas. These are the prime locations to check for mold growth in your home:

Mold High-Moisture Areas

High-Moisture Areas

  • Bathrooms: Shower stalls, bathtubs, and surrounding areas are susceptible to mold growth due to frequent splashing and condensation. Check for mold around grout lines, caulk, shower curtains, and behind bathroom fixtures.
  • Kitchens: Similar to bathrooms, areas around sinks, dishwashers, and underneath the kitchen sink where plumbing connections reside are prone to mold growth due to moisture and potential leaks.
  • Laundry Rooms: Damp laundry and condensation from dryers can create a breeding ground for mold. Inspect around washing machines, dryer vents, and in any corners where moisture might accumulate.
  • Basements: Basements are notorious for being damp and poorly ventilated. Check walls, floors, crawl spaces (if present), and around windows for signs of mold.
Other Vulnerable Locations:

Other Vulnerable Locations:

  • Attics: Attics can trap moisture, especially during hot and humid summers. Inspect attic insulation, around vents, and near roof leaks (if present) for mold growth.
  • Roofs and Ceilings: Leaks in roofs or faulty plumbing above ceilings can lead to hidden mold growth. Look for water stains or peeling paint on ceilings, and investigate any unexplained drips or damp spots.
  • Windowsills: Condensation around windows, especially in cold climates, can create a suitable environment for mold. Inspect windowsills for signs of mold growth, particularly if there are drafts or leaks around the window frames.
  • HVAC Systems: Improperly maintained HVAC systems can harbor mold growth due to condensation and moisture buildup. Check air conditioning drip pans and air ducts for mold.
  • Carpets and Upholstery: Spills and pet accidents that aren't cleaned promptly can lead to mold growth on carpets, rugs, and upholstered furniture. Be alert for musty odors and inspect areas that may have been damp for extended periods.

Remember: Mold can sometimes grow in hidden areas like behind walls or under floorboards. If you suspect mold growth but can't locate the source, it's best to consult a professional mold remediation company for a thorough inspection.
