Mold Inspection / Assessment and Other Environmental Testing
Our quality mold inspection process starts with a thorough visual assessment of the property. If needed, we will use a thermal imaging camera to locate moisture behind walls and will also measure the moisture levels throughout the property using our moisture sensing meters. We will identify the areas that were possibly affected such as high risks water intrusion areas, areas of excess moisture, and any visible mold growth. When we inspect and confirm these affected areas of concerns we will mutually agree on a plan for Mold testing which includes swab and air sampling. During the testing process the mold samples collected will be sent to an independent laboratory to be evaluated for further analysis.
After we get the results back from the lab, we put together a final report using the results of the tests and the findings of our Mold Assessor. This final report includes all the readings, pictures and observations of the mold inspection. Some people will just receive a clearance certificate letting them know that there is no need for further action as the test revealed there were no problematic mold levels.
As a Certified Mold Assessor, we understand the importance of an expert assessment in determining any remedial plans for your property. During our inspection, we do an initial visual examination to help identify possible or potential mold areas on the property. As part of this inspection, we appraise and digitally document any detection on your walls, ceiling areas, area rugs and/ or carpeting, furniture, and your ventilation system. We also document any damage to surrounding cellulosic fabrics and surfaces. In order to do a deeper evaluation of surface areas for possible mold, our experienced assessors utilize various Mold Testing Methods and Measuring Equipment.
Thermal Imaging Camera
Converts thermal energy or heat into visible light in order to evaluate if there is moisture behind walls and other surfaces
Mold Sampling Swabs
Helps to determine the presence of fungal spore in an affected area.
ATP SystemSure Plus
Testing method used to quickly assess surface cleanliness and determine presence of contamination, including mold
Used to take pictures of areas on the property that has potential mold damage.
Tape Lift Sampler
Technique that allows a quick examination of an area to test for fungal spores!
Thermo – Hygrometer
Used to measure temperature and relative humidity levels.
Air Sampling Pump
Device used to monitor industrial, environmental, indoor air quality.
A cassette that quickly collects a wide range of airborne microbes, including mold spores, pollen, skins cells, etc.
Meters that can help identify areas of concentrated moisture for potential mold growth.
