On your initial contact with us you will speak with a courteous professional about your particular situation. Once your questions and concerns are addressed, an appointment to visit your property will be scheduled.
One of our mold inspection experts will arrive at your property promptly at the scheduled appointment time. Inspection and sampling agreements will be reviewed and signed and key issues and concerns will be discussed prior to beginning the inspection. Upon completion of the inspection procedure, a detailed report will be provided to you within 24 hours if no samples were taken. If samples were taken, they will be submitted to the lab under proper Chain of Custody, and as soon as the test results are available you will receive a copy. The laboratory's turn around time is 24 hours on all samples collected. Weekends and holidays are the exception. We pride ourselves in getting the report to you as soon as possible.
Field technicians are trained for the most current mold procedural sampling protocols, professionalism, and meet all requirements for Certified Mold Inspectors. We visually survey the structure's interior, including possible water entry points, and collect relative humidity, temperature and moisture content measurements using a thermo hygrometer, which employs infrared technology and a moisture meter. Our instrument of choice is the Protimeter MMS 2 made by General Electric. Should your property contain evidence of indoor mold growth, or conditions that foster mold growth, we will recommend a sampling protocol. The sampling protocol is based on the overall condition of your property at the time of inspection. The number of samples that we collect is your decision.
We charge a flat rate fee of $220.00 for residential properties and commercial properties up to 2000 square feet. Larger properties are calculated at 12 cents per square foot. The sample collection fee for all samples, both air and surface is $90. Mold testing via surface sample collection identifies what types of mold are found on a surface, However, it does not quantify specific amounts or establish what the airborne mold spore counts are. Mold testing via air sample collection identifies what types of mold spores are in the air and quantifies the amounts of each type. Air sample collection requires a minimum of two samples being collected in order for the laboratory to have an outdoor control sample for comparative analysis. The indoor mold spore levels in your home should be similar to or lower than those in the outdoor environment.
