Molds are organisms that may be found indoors and outdoors. They are part of the natural environment and play an important role in the environment by breaking down and digesting organic material, such as dead leaves and foliage.
Mold is not usually a problem indoors, unless mold spores land on a wet or damp spot or surface and begin growing. Unchecked mold growth can damage buildings and furnishings; in fact, molds can rot wood, damage drywall and eventually cause structural damage to buildings.
Mold can also cause cosmetic damage, such as stains, to furnishings. The potential human health effects of mold are also a concern. It is important to prevent mold from growing indoors and damaging your property.

The best way to stop mold is to prevent it. In order to do this, it is really important to perform regular inspections that look beneath the surface for mold or for conditions that are at high risk of mold, so that they can be strengthened. There are tools available such as moisture meters that can measure moisture levels through walls and floors, giving you visibility to conditions you could not easily inspect otherwise. Regular inspections also give you a layer of protection should mold appear and a tenant accuses the property owner of negligence. To stay ahead of any mold and other hazardous material issues, Essel Environmental recommends that you develop a comprehensive environmental operations maintenance program that routinely reviews and documents property conditions.
Essel Environmental performs Property Condition Assessments (PCA) in-house and follows the ASTM 2018-08 standard. We also have the ability to customize a PCA to your specific concerns to ensure that all relevant concerns are addressed. Essel Environmental can include any add-ons to an existing PCA.
