Mold Inspection and Testing Services
Sustained water intrusion, commonly caused by high humidity, condensation, flooding, or broken/leaking pipes, under the right conditions, will inevitably lead to the growth of mold and fungus. Left untreated, materials exposed to water intrusion can quickly become contaminated by the proliferation of mold spores. Humans exposed to mold contamination can potentially suffer a variety of health problems caused by the mycotoxins produced by mold spores.
Identifying potential sources of water intrusion is the first step in mitigating mold contamination. Our multi-state, licensed mold inspectors use a variety of test methods to identify and quantify the source and extent of water intrusion including air monitoring, tape testing, bulk sampling, and infrared thermography. Upon identifying the source, our experienced professionals work with clients to develop and implement effective, cost efficient plans to abate mold contamination.
