Indoor Air Quality
The basic problem with mold is that it can be hidden. Home inspectors are not mold remediation specialists and do not have the expertise required to identify potential mold issues. Home buyers are well advised to invest in both a home inspection and mold inspection before purchasing a home, particularly if there is any indication that there are potential moisture issues. (Buyer Beware! How Reliable is Your Home Inspection?)
MOLD INSPECTION & MOLD TESTING
Confirming that mold remediation is required begins with a professional mold inspection. The inspector will look for visible signs of mold as well as evidence of a recent or ongoing source of moisture. Once the presence of mold is established, the inspector will weigh factors like a property’s use and its inhabitants’ likely sensitivity to determine whether mold sampling and laboratory testing are appropriate.
Mold sampling allows us to evaluate whether mold spore concentrations are outside typically safe levels. Mold testing – conducted by an accreditred third-party professional laboratory facility – uses the gathered samples to determine the particular varieties of mold, mildew, and other microorganisms present. This gives us further insight into toxicity levels and any dangers associated with exposure.
Our services include indoor air quality testing for mold and bacteria, including mycotoxins and endotoxins, that may be adversely affecting building occupants. We provide thorough inspections of buildings and HVAC systems including air handlers, filters, ductwork, crawl spaces, attics, rooftops, air intakes, and exhausts. We will identify fungal and bacterial quantities and provide a clear interpretation of how the results may impact human health.
