Des Moines Mold Inspection | Des Moines Mold Testing
Welcome to the home of Mold Inspection & Testing Des Moines, a unbiased Iowa test only assessment company. Whether you already know the importance of having a third party inspector or if you are just now learning about why it is beneficial to have someone separate from a restoration company we can definitely help you out.
The inspection process starts with a full visual check using moisture detection tools and identifying areas of concern. This can be walls, floors, ceilings holding moisture or actual visible growth. During this time they will document various things and take pictures that will later be used for your final report. After the inspector has assessed the entire property they will suggest a plan for mold testing.
Each of our inspections includes mold testing, specifically an inside vs. outside air comparison to figure out if elevated conditions exist in the area of main concern. Our inspector will suggest any sample that could potentially offer additional information. This could either be more air samples and/or physical surface tests. The main objective of these tests is typically to confirm a source of a problem and/or to see how far a problem has spread. If there are multiple problem areas with separate sources you may require an air sample from each of these areas in order for us to give you information that you need.
After the Des Moines mold inspection is complete, tests are sent to a independent AIHA accredited laboratory for analysis. If elevated conditions are found, the mold inspector will prepare a secondary report with recommendations for professional mold remediation. Knowing exactly what work needs to be performed will help ensure that you are not paying for any unnecessary work. Essentially paying for our service will help you save money in the long run by either avoiding professional restoration entirely or at least keeping it to a minimum.
