If you are concerned about mold inside your home or business, you have come to the right place. MI&T offers the entire state of Birmingham mold inspection and mold testing Alabama without a conflict of interest. Our company has no affiliation with the mold remediation process other than giving you a detailed protocol showing the steps that need to be taken in order to remedy a situation. This is only for cases where a problem does indeed exist. We have many clients whose lab results show perfectly healthy air and we are happy to relay that information as we do not benefit either way.
Unless you have dealt with indoor mold growth in the past, chances are you are somewhat confused about the entire situation. So what exactly is included in your mold inspection Birmingham AL and why should you have one? To fully answer that question, you should know a few things. First of all every indoor environment has “normal” levels of mold. We start with 2 air samples, one which is taken from outside to establish a baseline for normal in your area. The second is collected from the area of greatest concern inside your home or business. Additional air samples may be suggested to gather more information about the location in question. Our certified inspectors will also recommend taking a surface sample whenever visual growth is present. All of the samples collected are sent to an independent laboratroy for analysis.

To go along with sample collection, our inspectors are also equipped with state of the art technology like moisture meters, C02/Humidity readers, and a thermal imaging camera. These are essential tools for finding problems before they become visible to the naked eye. Once the lab sends us the results from your Alabama mold testing, make a detailed report which will include all of the inspectors findings from the visual inspection. It will also include pictures and a detailed protocol for cases in which a mold problem is indeed present.
If you plan to submit an insurance claim or request that a landlord or building manager address a problem, our report is extremely helpful. It is much more likely that you will be taken seriously when you have a professional assessment of the situation recommending that work be done. Please take note that companies offering “free mold inspections” are often restoration companies that also handle mold remediation. This is a tactic used to get a foot in the door and push a mold removal job which is very costly and not always necessary. The best restoration companies actually prefer that an outside inspection company be used for 2 reasons. First, they actually prefer using our detailed protocol to take out all the guess work of what should be done. Secondly, having an indpendent company verify the problem and also confirm that a job is complete makes them look very good and things like insurance claims go much smoother.
