Major Metro Served: How long have you lived here and what do you like most about living in this area.

Nashville, TN (26 years) What I like most about living in Nashville is the tranquility in my community. Many hiking trails and bike paths to enjoy the outdoors. Also the best food and county music there is.


What do you like most about being a mold inspector?:

The best inspection that makes me proud, would be the one I performed for a new potential homeowner. They did not know what they were getting themselves into, they never had to hire a mold inspector before. We went through all the possible areas of potential mold growth. What best comforts me is giving the client a peace of mind for his first home.

Mold Inspection & Testing Knoxville Tennessee

For clients that do have elevated levels of mold in their home, we offer a complete protocol for restoration. This includes a step-by-step process for how the remediation should be handled and who should be doing the work. Mold remediation is different than a standard 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 completed. 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 contractor would not. If this type of work is attempted by someone without the proper experience, there is a good chance they will only further the air quality issues within the residence or business.

When dealing with these sort of issues in your property or business, you want to make sure that you use a company without a conflict of interest. Hiring a Knoxville 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 costly job. As we already mentioned, sometimes clients have results 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 forego the opportunity for work by letting you know your concerns are unjustifiable.

Here at MI&T, we operate under a strict code of ethics. Our inspectors are the best at determining whether or not you have a problem, where the source is, and giving you specialized advice on how to fix it. So if you are worried about your indoor air quality, call the company you can trust at 855-600-6653 (MOLD). We are happy to offer our services to all of the following cities around Knoxville, Tennessee.
