ATLANTA, Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- September was Mold Awareness Month, but the fact of the matter is that mold concerns don't stop in September. The flood and hurricane season continues and it's the time of year in which many people start spending more time indoors—and realize that they have an air quality problem. Family members will sneeze, cough, and complain of cold-like symptoms that simply won't go away. But it's not a cold virus that's causing the problem; it's mold.
My Mold Detective is the first-of-its-kind: an easy-to-use, DIY kit that "captures" the breathable air contaminants in a home (the mold spores) to identify them. My Mold Detective is similar to the professional-grade tools used by indoor environmental professionals but affordable for everyone.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the presence of mold in a home can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people. People who have allergies may suffer from sneezing, runny noses, red eyes, and skin rashes. Mold allergies can also trigger serious asthma attacks in susceptible people.
"My Mold Detective helps people avoid only treating the symptoms and uncover the root cause of their air quality issue," says Fred Rodriguez, President and Chief Executive of the company. "The test results are quantifiable; they deliver information on the type of mold on the property and the number of spores detected. It is much more reliable than the other DIY mold testing products currently on the market."
Once homeowners receive the laboratory results of their tests, they can call the My Mold Detective Help Line (1-855-MOLD-123) to be connected with a pre-screened, qualified, and local mold professional who can help them get the mold out of their homes.
"My Mold Detective is the home's thermometer, used to determine the wellness of air quality. It provides the most accurate results for mold presence in a DIY product," says Rodriguez. "Our goal is to help residents in every home get the mold out and put the quality of air back into their homes."
