Why is a mold assessment important?
Whether you are buying a home, worried about signs of potential mold growth, or just want the peace of mind that you have the indoor air quality that you deserve, a mold assessment is needed to identify if there are any water intrusion, elevated moisture levels, or excess relative humidity that can cause odors or condensation.
Mold assessments are conducted by trained and licensed mold technicians who know where to look, what tools to use and are adept at identifying where the original source of the issue occured. First and foremost, a visual inspection is needed to identify the severity of the moisture and humidity. Even if no mold is visibly present, we have advanced technology and methods to help us identify whether mold is present in areas out of sight, such as behind drywall, under floorboards, attics and crawl spaces, or in the a/c air ductwork.
Upon completing our investigation, our mold technicians will share their findings with you and identify possible areas of concern. Our wi-fi integrated tools allow our mold technicians to share data with our project managers in real time in order to complete an in-depth mold assessment report. Our mold assessment will document if mold was found at your property, either visually or digitally, along with the results of the samples sent to the lab, should they be necessary due to underlying health concerns. Our senior project manager will work with you upon completion of the mold assessment report to go over detailed photos and instrument readings documenting the findings and lay out the best course of action to remove the discovered mold from your property.

Even if mold is not visible, when a musty odor is present and persistent in your home, it can be a sign of mold growth. If you have experienced a water leak recently or persistent exposure to high humidity in your home, there is a strong likelihood that those areas exposed have become environments highly conducive for mold growth. It is important to have a mold assessment completed if any clues or factors of mold growth are apparent in your home.
