The media has been abuzz with stories of dangerous and deadly mold for years, but especially in the past couple months. You hear stories of people who find mold in their bathrooms or attics who get terrible infections and allergies from it, and some even end up hospitalized, or worse!
The truth is that in small quantities, most mold is harmless to people beyond causing a few allergies. Only a few species of mold have spores that are toxic to humans, and while these molds are very real, the media often blows the prevalence and danger of these molds out of proportion.
So how can you tell if the mold you have in your business is dangerous or not? A professional like AMD can provide mold testing in PA that can reveal if the mold you have in your business poses a danger to you or your customers.
How can you tell “toxic” and “nontoxic” molds apart? Of course, both kinds of mold can damage your building, but most kinds of mold do not directly damage people (as long as these people do not have an autoimmune disease).
But here is the catch: if you run a medical or dialysis center, then all molds pose a risk for your business. The CDC has linked the presence of accumulated mold with respiratory problems, triggering asthma attacks, and allergic reactions. Especially given the risks associated with medical patients, business owners or facilities managers for a medical or dialysis centers cannot allow mold to accumulate.
That’s why it is so important for business owners and facilities managers, especially those involved with medical and dialysis centers, to find proper mold testing in PA. While most people can spot mold growing on their walls or ceilings, it takes a professional to determine if the mold is a problem that could be hazardous for your customers. Mold often grows in hard-to-reach and hard-to-see places, including behind walls, in HVAC systems, and beneath exterior cladding. Not to mention mold spores that are invisible to the naked eye, that could be floating around your facility as we speak.

If what you are seeing is just the tip of the iceberg, then the real mold problem could be causing health issues for you and your customers. Unfortunately, mold grows fast, and sometimes all it takes is a heavy rainfall for a small mold problem to blossom into a health issue. Mold testing in PA can identify a mold infection just waiting to happen.
