If you are noticing odd conditions in the indoor environment of your home or business in the beautiful area of Charleston, South Carolina, you may have a issue with mold. Unless you have dealt with something like this before, chances are that you are not sure who to go to or what to do next. That’s where we comes in! The professionals at Mold Inspection and Testing Charleston, South Carolina are in business to help home and business owners just like yourself who are anxious mold may be negatively impacting their indoor air quality.
Elevated mold for an indoor environment is not something that should be taken lightly. Lateset studies show that breathing in the spores that are released into the air by this fungus on a normal basis can have serious health implications; this is especially true for the young and elderly, as well as individuals with pre-existing conditions. Unfortunately, companies that handle the removal of these types of problems often take advantage of people’s concerns in order to get more work. Other than giving you the steps to treat a problem, we are not linked with any part of the removal process. For this reason, you can be certain that the results you get from us are in fact accurate.

Major Metro Served: How long have you lived here and what do you like most about living in this area.
I am a licensed home inspector. I have completed over 1,500 Mold Inspections within 5 years. What I enjoy most about Charleston is the southern hospitality.
What do you like most about being a mold inspector?:
What I love most about my career is being able to have conclusive evidence on a condition that may not be visual. It is difficult to locate a red flag area if they have no evidence of Mold. When I perform the walk through, I check all the areas and open up the cabinets. The source of the problem can occur behind the drywall not visual to the surface. It is always recommended to advise the Inspector of any strong smells or previous roof leaks.
Describe an inspection that you are particularly proud of: (Specifics on mold issue, Client relationship, What was rewarding about it)
I had an Inspection where the client was pregnant, she was experiencing health issues. I went on site and Inspected the property. We found high counts of Pen/Asp and the reports proved that the property was not acceptable. The lease was broken, and she was so happy to be informed of the mold strands she was breathing in at the property. The report helped her primary doctor to diagnose her health issue and she was able to relocate.
