Our Mold Assessment Process

Client Interview - Background Info: We get to know you—and your property. We ask smart questions, take the time to listen, and dive deep to find out the "who, what, where, when, and why" of your home or building, its history, known problem areas, and your concerns. This information-gathering stage of the process is vital to every step that follows.

Determine Strategy - Set Objectives:  We perform an initial walkthrough of your property to gain a better understanding of the space and any known problem areas.  Based on information gathered from you and our first-hand observations, we formulate a hypothesis and clearly communicate what you can expect throughout the rest of the process.

Visual Inspection and Mold:  We bring years of experience and a variety of tools like moisture meters, thermal imaging cameras, and boroscope cameras to canvas your home or office.

Mold and Other Bioaerosol Testing:  We apply approved sampling techniques and the latest technologies like spore trap analysis, tape lift and swab sampling, vapor emissions testing, and particle counting to collect air, bulk, and surface samples of mold and other bioaerosols like dust mites, pollen, dander, and outgassing VOCs.

Laboratory Analysis:  We send the collected samples to an independent laboratory.  Qualified lab technicians use the latest analytical methods and techniques to complete a series of qualitative and quantitative tests.  The lab reports back to us, supplying us with the analytical data we need to move forward.

Report Findings:  We prepare and present to you a comprehensive report, summarizing our visual observations and measurements, lab results, and data interpretations.  Rest assured this document is scientifically sound, meticulously accurate, and legally defensible.

Recommendations for Remediation: We create a Remediation Protocol Plan, which outlines the locations/quantity of contaminants, recommended remediation methods, required personal protective equipment, containment procedures, and clearance criteria. (We also provide clearance testing to make sure all problems are resolved.)

Let our experienced mold assessor provide you with the "Peace of Mind" you are looking for when dealing with a mold situation.
