Initial Mold Consultation

Clients disclose why they would like a mold inspection. Usually they have seen mold, smell a musty odor, feel a high humidity in the home or have become ill at home or a combination of these.

 

Visual Mold Inspection

Looking for visual mold, water stains, moisture intrusion. Checking suspect areas with a surface moisture meter or thermal imaging camera to detect further moisture in wall cavities.

 

Mold Sampling

The visual inspection and consultation will indicate which rooms need to be air sampled along with an outdoor control sample. If a surface area has suspected mold that is visual,then a swab or a physical sample can be taken,to confirm the type of mold.

 

Reporting

The mold Inspection report is written upon receiving the lab analysis. The lab results are interpreted in the report and visual findings are recorded. Recommendations can be made free of charge by the mold inspector. The lab results are legal documents and have individual identification numbers on them.

 

Recommendations and Removal

Any recommendations be done by a Certified Mold Inspector or Remediator. Mold removal can be more dangerous than having dormant mold in a home. Negative air pressure machines, hepa filters, gloves and masks should be used.

 

Final Mold Air Sampling

Mold Air samples of the same rooms should be done after all moldy surfaces are cleaned or removed. Final mold air sampling will show mold levels decreased to an acceptable level in these rooms. Lab results from final mold air sampling is the proof you need to be assured that the infesting mold has been removed properly and completely.
