Mold Investigation & Testing
Any amount of mold growth in your home can be detrimental to the health of you and your family, and mold can also do significant damage to your home. And unfortunately, mold can exist and grow in your home for years before you start to see any visual evidence of its existence or see the long-term effects of its growth. Our experts can test your home for mold, find exactly where it's located, and help you determine the best solutions to your mold problems.
Moisture Analysis & Control
When there's moisture in your Charleston home, it can lead to mold growth and major structural damages. Locating and eliminating moisture that is making its way into your home is a big part of keeping your home in great condition, but it's not always easy. Our professionals offer moisture analysis services to help you determine how much moisture is affecting your home and what its precise location is. We can also help you with moisture control services that will prevent any more damage from occurring.
Indoor Air Quality
People spend around 90% of their lives indoors, so making sure that the air you breathe while you're inside your home is safe and healthy is extremely important. Indoor air has a huge effect on your health, and it can cause or trigger major respiratory problems. Our air quality solutions will help to keep you and your family as healthy as possible.
In the Charleston area, humidity is a major problem, and if the air in your home is too humid, it can cause a number of problems. While air conditioning systems provide some humidity control, it's typically not enough, especially in this region. Our professionals can offer you whole-house dehumidifiers to help you keep your home's air less humid, as well as a number of other humidity control services.

Mold and Air Quality Services We Provide In Charleston
Humidity control is important for many reasons. The air inside your home is effectively trapped there. When you are inside, you're trapped with whatever contaminants are in the air. When the humidity level is too high, mold and mildew can grow. High indoor humidity cause other problems as well.
In the 1970s and '80s, it was reported that mold contamination caused poor indoor air quality in 5% of 500 indoor air quality tests performed by NIOSH. Later in 1986 to 1996, that percentage jumped to 35-50%. An air tight home without proper ventilation and air circulation keeps moisture in. Since mold thrives in moist conditions, this makes the perfect incubating environment.
