The goal of remediation is 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.

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  the mold remediation (removal) process and its removal according to industry standard guidelines of ACGIH, AIHA, 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.  Pre-Testing & 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.

Types of sampling methods include:  (ALL PHASES)

  • 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 telezoom lenses provides colored images 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. Can be utilized for ice dams, roof leaks, plumbing leaks, floods, weatherization Heat Loss Energy temperature differential range such as no insulation behind walls,  floors, attic, ceilings.

  • Allergen Testing: There are many different contaminants in indoor environments that can cause or aggravate allergies and/or asthma. Dust can contain a multitude of allergens including dust mites, mold spores, and  pet dander. A major reservoir for collecting and holding dust indoors are carpets. We use a vacuum cannister to collect dust samples on carpets, sofas, bedding, etc. to look for dust mites, pet dander, mold spores etc.  Dust mites commonly live in house dust and eat skin cells shed by humans, animals. They thrive in warm humid climates. In most home, bedding, upholstered furniture, and carpeting provide an ideal environment for dust mites. (Note: Not all allergies are mold or pollen related!)
