The purpose of sampling for mold if needed is to help establish whether elevated settled mold spores are present in a home or building environment. A thorough visual inspection is important along with sampling. The goal of remediation is to identify and correct the water or moisture problem. To remove the mold contamination, clean, treat where necessary and restore affected damaged area of mold to a pre-existing 'condition 1' status as referenced in ANSI/IICRC S520  Mold Remediation. The underlying cause of the mold growth must be rectified or the growth will reoccur.

To find out if there is an inside reservoir, mold colony forming units or source of fungal spores in an area in which human exposure is likely to occur. To determine whether there may be structural damage due to the presence of fungi, moisture or dampness in the suspect mold areas of concern. Mold sampling can help locate the sources of indoor microorganisms and facilitate effective remediation when and where necessary.

Post Remedial Verification Inspection-Testing

The scope of this test is to determine if the mold remediation (removal) process and its removal according to industry standard guidelines of IICRC S520 . This inspection includes a thorough visual inspection with mold air sampling , wipes, swabs, bio-tapes if necessary. Our trained technician has advanced certifications to conduct this scope of inspection. Pretesting & Visual Inspections: This test consist of a mold screen and to determine the areas that viable and/or non-viable  air sampling, swab, bio-tape, or bulk sampling in all areas of home or office. We work with the  company and our client to ensure that the goal of mold removal and cleanup are accomplished following industry standards and guidelines such as IICRC S520 mold removal. There are currently no federal or state standards when it comes to testing for mold in Massachusetts.

Specialize in Real Estate inspections for mold and sources of water intrusions. Being independent consultants we offer an objective viewpoint which helps both the buyer and seller of property because we do not remediate mold. Mold infestation such in the attic roof plywood sheathing due to improper ventilation  and/or no vents, floor joists, black mold caused by roof/flashing  leaks, bathroom  exhaust, moisture, ice damning, fascia board, wood rot/decay, Basement and crawlspace areas. Finding and repairing the source of mold is important to a successful remediation project.

Types of sampling methods include:  

  • AIR (spore traps viable & non viable) this helps to assess exposure levels of people in an indoor space and to determine whether spores are traveling and growing throughout the indoor environment. Identification & Enumeration of Fungal spores and mycology.

  • SURFACE: These viable samples taken from surfaces to determine whether or not mold is growing on the surface sampled with direct identification. To determine what kinds of mold are present. surface procedures could be tape, swabbing the suspect surface with a cultural swab, or by analyzing a bulk sample.
  • ON-SITE INSPECTIONS: Is an essential element in all mold investigations. Mold sampling is not a substitute for a thorough visual walk through mold and moisture assessment, gather information,  use of indicator and diagnostic measurements, report findings by a competent trained certified professional.

THERMAL INFRARED IMAGING: A non invasive means of diagnosing the condition of a building or structure. The lenses provides colored images can be downloaded on a laptop to see if moisture, water intrusion, hot spots, even rodents. Moisture and extreme temperature change for cool surface can be a source to feed mold growth. Thermal Imaging in itself is not a mold detector but help to identify problem areas where it can be utilized for ice dams, roof leaks, plumbing leaks, floods, heat loss energy - temperature differential range such as no insulation behind walls,  floors, attic, ceilings.  

  • Moisture, Relative Humidity, Water Damage Assessment:  To detect moisture in the floors, walls, ceilings, floor joists, beams, carpets, roof plywood sheathing, studs, duct vents, wood, concrete using the latest in technological advancement.
  • Odor Control:We offer indoor air purification with medical grade charcoal filtration. We investigate to attempt to pinpoint the source of the musty odor or olfactory problems and come up with a plan for solutions by a process of elimination. A rule out process helps to identify and determine what testing may be conducted  if necessary.
  • Dehumidifiers: Utilizing light commercial grade dehumidifiers Fe to help to control moisture and musty odors. When you control moisture you control mold growth.
