Wondering if You Need a Mold Inspection in the Escondido, Valley Center and Temecula Areas of California?

Ask yourself these questions to see if you may need to have a mold inspection and mold testing done at your residence or building.

  1. Do you have an odd musty smell where you live, work or even on some of your clothing or furniture?
  2. Does the smell get stronger or worse when the property is closed up for a while?
  3. Do you feel better outside than when you go inside?
  4. Does water puddle up next to your walls?
  5. Have you had a broken water pipe or a water leak from your roof, window, dishwasher, washing machine, refrigerator or icemaker?

If you answered yes to any of these questions you may need a professional mold inspection! If you have mold growing inside it will continue to grow and spread if you don’t take action, so don’t delay!

Escondido and Temecula Mold Testing

Mold needs water, moisture or dampness to be able to grow, this is why I asked you the questions about water. There are many other reasons to have a mold or indoor air quality inspection performed.

If you are renting or leasing a property, you don’t want to move in and have to deal with the disturbance of having mold repairs done or even worse, your landlord doesn’t do the repairs at all and you have to move again and fight over your lease.

If you are buying a home or building, we can help you find out if you need to be worried about mold or the air quality inside the building. Real estate is a huge investment and it is best to know as much about the property as you can before you sign those escrow papers. You don’t want to purchase a property and end up having the headaches of a mold problem or the additional expenses for unexpected mold repairs!

Let us give you peace of mind that your home, business or workplace has good indoor air quality.

Environmental Testing & Technology Inc., (ET&T), specializes in mold testing for all types of buildings in the inland areas of San Diego County. We have been performing high quality mold inspections and testing since our local company was founded in 1986 in Encinitas, California.  We have inspected and mold tested apartments, condominium complexes, homes, schools, medical facilities, large and small businesses, hotels and resorts located in and around the Escondido, Valley Center and Temecula areas. We have worked for homeowners, tenants, building owners, realtors, property management companies and lawyers to determine if there are mold or indoor air quality problems or not. 

We have done many jobs in the inland areas of San Diego County so we are very familiar with the inland climate of Temecula, Escondido and Valley Center from rain in the winter to the hot dry days of the summer.
In the winter months, water gets inside from leaking roofs, poorly sealed windows and improper drainage of rain water.  In the summer, we run the air conditioner 24/7 and have the building closed up to keep the cool in and the heat out.  The problem with this is that when we use water inside the building (showers, washing machines, dishwashers) the humidity inside builds up and can’t get out because we can’t or don’t air out our buildings.
A large portion of the year it is dry in the inland areas of San Diego County so we often need to water year round. Sprinkler overspray and poor drainage are frequent causes of mold indoors because the exterior walls get wet leading to wet walls inside. Even though we think of the walls of the house as providing protection from outside, stucco and many building materials are porous and let moisture in. For more information about sprinklers and drainage problems please check out my blog posts on our website at
