Our mold inspection and mold testing services leverage our extensive knowledge of mold and mildew (black mold, black toxic mold, Stachybotrys, and other molds) and the conditions conducive to mold growth as well as building construction, air flows, building materials, and heating ventilation and air-conditioning systems.
Where we find mold, we find moisture. By locating the source of moisture and identifying hidden water intrusion sources we can focus our mold investigation in the right areas. Where there is water damage from a flood, leak, or natural event we can inspect and asses the water damage along with identifying the presence of mold and make recommendations on the best ways to return building to a healthy state.
We use FLIR infrared camera technology to enhance our inspection services. This advanced, non-invasive technology allows our inspectors to zero in and identify potential sources of moisture to more accurately determine testing and sampling investigations. This, in turn, will allow us to make conclusions and recommendations for action during the inspection.
This is done to evaluate the quality of air in your building to make sure levels are within acceptable levels. Each air cassette has a glass slide in it which traps mold spores we then send that cassette off to a lab to be analyzed and quantified for the number of spores and differentiation to what type of spores are present. We always take one sample outside as a control or essentially baseline.
surface sample using a swab is done when an unknown growth is found and needs to be evaluated for if and what type of mold it is. Surface mold sampling using a swab can determine what molds are growing on a surface, if mold is present at sub-visible concentrations, or if mold spores have been settling out of the air in an unusual quantity.
