Mold Inspection and Identification
All mold cases are different. Simply put, we have treated thousands of mold cases till now, and the severity differs per customer. This is what we precisely observe in mold inspection and identification. Our staff checks your property to determine if you are actually affected by mold.
On spotting visible mold signs, we proceed with sampling and testing of mold. However, note that sometimes mold is not visible to the naked eye, but it is still present. Our experts figure it out through air testing or by smelling certain objects.
This might require the removal of certain materials around your home. For instance, we may rip off your wallpaper to observe mold hidden behind it. Nonetheless, our team restores your home back to normal after treating mold.
Sampling and Testing
After identifying mold we tend to collect samples for further analysis. Because mold types are different, a single process cannot be used to treat all kinds.
Testing, however, helps us determine the precise mold type helping us draft an ideal mold treatment plan. Here are a few samples we take for commercial buildings.
Tape lift is one of the simplest ways to collect a mold sample. A clear adhesive tape is an excellent way to collect spores and dust. We press the tape onto a few surfaces in your home and remove it instantly.
The tape is then placed in a plastic bag which is transferred to a professional lab for further analysis.
Air samples are perfect for examining the indoor air environment. This involves viable or non-viable techniques. The former involves living/live microorganisms, while the latter process includes non-living particles.
We collect samples of both alive and dead mold spores. This offers a clear picture of what kind of mold you are exposed to and what processes we should use to remove it.
Swab tests include the use of cotton or fiber to collect a sample from the suspected area. Later, lab professionals observe it under a microscope and generate reports highlighting the test details.
We value your prized possessions and try our best to restore them. However, not all items are restorable. For instance, if you’ve been exposed to mold growth for a long time, the spores absorb deep within the porous surfaces – consider carpet and drywall, for instance.
So even after following the standardized cleanup processes, these spores will grow back and spread.
Therefore, it is best to get rid of materials that have been affected by mold. We inspect your items and discard them before starting our cleaning process.
