Indianapolis Mold Testing & Removal

Mold is a natural condition that can occur in any home. Mold occurs most often when an area of the home has sustained water damage or is consistently moist. Mold can grow on any surface and, if not treated, can cause health problems for anyone living in the home. People with breathing difficulties, immune system problems or allergies, are more likely to experience ill effects due to mold in their homes. Infants, children, pregnant women, and the elderly tend to be more sensitive to mold exposure risks.

FAQs About Mold Testing & Remediation

I have some mold in my house. Is that dangerous?
Mold exposure can cause adverse health effects in some people. Mold spores are always in the air we breathe, but extensive mold contamination may cause health problems. Breathing mold can cause allergic and respiratory symptoms.

How do I know if what I see in my home is dangerous?
Certain molds are toxigenic, meaning they can produce mycotoxins. Hazards presented by molds that may produce mycotoxins should be considered the same as other common molds that can grow in your house. Not all fungi produce mycotoxins, and even those that do will not do so under all surface or environmental conditions.

Mold growth, which often looks like spots, can be in many different colors and smell musty. Color is not an indication of how dangerous a mold may be. Mold needs to be removed, and the moisture source that feeds its growth must be eliminated.

Sampling for mold can be expensive, and there are no standards for judging what is and what is not an acceptable quantity of mold. The best practice is to remove the mold and work to prevent future growth.

How much does that cost?
The cost varies from one location to the next.  The cost will include a consultation/trip fee plus the cost of each test, a minimum of two tests is necessary.   A physical inspection of your home or thoughtful consideration of the building’s characteristics and the factors that led to the present condition is paramount in interpreting the sample results.

We had a fantastic experience with Aegis all along. They were prompt answering and scheduling us for an inspection. Jonathan Hoover came to check our basement for asbestos. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to kindly answer our many questions. It was so reassuring to work with someone so professional, patient, and so accommodating! I would absolutely recommend working with Aegis and won't hesitate hiring their services again in the future.

Mya was my technician and was quick and easy to work with. Their prices are higher then the others but to me it was worth it since they kept their promise time to get results. This made things much easier for me since I was waiting for these results for my mortgage. Thanks Aegis!

Aegis provided excellent service. The inspector/worker, Jonathan Hoover, that came out was very polite and knowledgeable. I would recommend Aegis Environmental for any residential asbestos concerns.

Fantastic company to work with. I'm under contract to buy a home and an underground storage tank was discovered by my home inspector. After a call with Aegis, they were able to get out to the property quickly to assess the problem. Turns out, there are FOUR underground storage tanks present since the property is multi-family. They have been very thorough, professional, and communicative to work with so far. I highly recommend working with them for any/all of your environmental remediation/cleanup needs.
