Home Mold Inspection
Mold inspection is a procedure involving the examination of a place to detect the presence of harmful mold. Mold spores are tiny thus invisible to the eye. Once they get favorable growth conditions, they start growing and flourishing within 48 hours. They can even grow to places that you cannot reach or are not visible, like a leaky pipe present inside a wall, beneath the moist tiles, etc. That is why a regular mold inspection is essential to make sure you are not breathing unhealthy mold spores.
During the examination, an inspector will look for the areas or places at risk for mold. Even if you do not have mold at home, a timely mold inspection can prevent costly damage. Similarly, if mold is present, then locating it will help you prevent its spread. Staying in an environment having mold spores can make you feel sick. It can make your throat scratchy, cause headaches or allergies. It can even aggravate chronic conditions like asthma.
Our mold inspectors help people create a safe, healthy, and mold-free environment. We use advanced techniques and equipment to do a complete inspection. Don’t neglect a mold issue as it may become a cause of costly damage tomorrow.

Protocol for Mold Remediation

Our skilled mold inspectors have the proper knowledge and know which mold remediation treatment is needed when and where. We write authentic mold remediation protocols with the best solutions you need to get rid of mold and never let it grow again.
We will identify the real cause of mold growth and let you know how to eliminate that cause. It could be a water leakage issue or any other source of moisture. After source identification, mold removal methods are suggested. In these methods, affected areas are cleaned, and non-affected regions are protected from mold exposure.
We will perform visibility tests to make sure no mold is left behind. If the material is damaged during this process, it will be replaced with a material that is not as attractive for the mold. Each mold case requires a different plan that must be followed as it is to make sure all mold has been treated well and there is close to no chance of its reappearance.
Mold Removal Protocol
Cleaning up mold is an essential step required to make sure it does not damage more items and is removed before it reaches the other areas. Many techniques, chemicals, and equipment are used during the process. A suitable mold remediation protocol ensures that mold does not start growing in new places during the mold removal process.
During the mold removal process, any exposure to the mold can cause health issues. That is why careful steps are taken to keep the mold inspector and homeowners safe and protected. The affected site is cleaned and decontaminated to kill mold. In some instances, the affected area is removed and replaced with non-infected items.

Mold Prevention and Detection
We all have always heard “prevention is better than cure,” well, it suits every mold situation, so right. If you get rid of the site that is expected to cause mold growth, you will be able to save your home from future mold growth and predictable damage. Moisture is every mold’s favorite item. It will start growing in a moisture-rich area as soon as it lands on it.
Moisture investigation is a process that determines the cause of high moisture levels. You can remove that source and prevent mold growth. Roofs, pipes, drainage systems, kitchen sink, and similar places are checked thoroughly because these are the most common sites where mold grows. Tools like moisture meter or thermal cameras are used to detect the moisture level in hidden and visible places. If there is a high moisture level, then we will recommend a proper solution.
Our mold inspectors use premium tools to investigate moisture present at various sites. They first check the most common areas and then other places as well. After identifying the problem, they will inform you of the issue and help you tackle it well!

We also take wastewater samples as they can also have the virus. So, this test can be beneficial in organizations, offices, or other places where several people visit every day. Call us today to get samples tested for the COVID-19.
LEED V4, V4.1 Assessment
IAQ USGBC Indoor Air Assessment
LEED V4, and V4.1 testing is an advanced and valuable technique used to check if a building follows green building measures or not. It determines if your building is healthy enough to live or not. In LEED testing, the presence of harmful elements such as ozone, volatile organic compounds, formaldehyde, etc., is detected in the air.
Construction materials can emit these elements if certified material or techniques are not used. They are also present in many everyday items. If those items are used several times in a day, then harmful gases can build in your surroundings. Continuous exposure to these elements can cause health issues. That is why if you are a hair salon owner, have a retail building, or school, etc., then get the air quality checked regularly to make sure it is safe for the people.
