We get you answers by carrying out mold testing along with a complete visual inspection by our inspector. Free mold inspections do not utilize this service and are quite simply just guessing at what is going on in your house. Air sample collection gives you accurate evidence about the current state of your air quality. We can collect samples of air from areas you smell or see something out of the ordinary. If there are small indications of excess moisture on a wall we can do in-wall samples to determine if there is a issue beneath the surface. Surface sample collection is used when visible mold growth is present. Certain kinds of fungus are not easily airborne unless disturbed; this includes the feared toxic black mold stachybotrys. Identifying the species present is very important in determining whether or not the issue could be handled by yourself or needs professional intervention.

Mold Inspection & Testing Dekalb Illinois
For clients that do have elevated levels of mold in their property, we supply a complete protocol for remediation. This includes a step-by-step process for how the job should be handled and who should be doing the work. Mold remediation is different than a normal remodeling job. When removing contaminated materials, you are sending thousands of mold spores into the air. For this reason, problem areas should be contained and equipped with an airscrubber while work is being done. After contaminated materials are removed, walls must be hepa vaccumed and treated with antimicrobial solutions and sealants. These are things that professional remediation companies have the capabilities of doing that a normal construction company would not. If this type of work is attempted by someone without the proper experience, there is a high chance they will only further the air quality issues within the property or business.
When dealing with these types of issues in your residence or business, you want to make sure that you use a company without a conflict of interest. Hiring a Dekalb, Illinois mold remediation company to finish an inspection is an example of what you don’t want to do. These companies often offer free inspections to get their foot in their door to pitch a larger, more lucrative job. As we already mentioned, sometimes customers have tests that come back with no problem at all or one small enough to be handled on their own. A visual inspection could never tell you these types of details and some mold removal companies would not bypass the opportunity for work by letting you know your concerns are unjustifiable.
