Your Lafayette Mold Inspector


Joshua Underwood

Professional Background:

NAIHI mold inspection certified. My previous employment was in telecommunications installation and networking. I also did prototype engineering with wheelchair tanks that were primarily for disabled veterans.

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

I have lived in the area for around 4-5 years. I have traveled to several different states but new opportunities have brought me here to Indianapolis. Despite all the places I have been at, this area is what has made me feel more at home. Also, I cover the entire state of Indiana and sometimes travel to neighboring areas as well.

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

I enjoy being able to provide clients unbiased information and help find the source of their problem. There are several remediation companies that will provide free testing to clients so they can try to sell them on the work. I am grateful to be in a position where I can help homeowners and business owners with this and perform a thorough inspection.

Describe an inspection that you are particularly proud of: (Specifics on mold issue, Client relationship, What was rewarding about it)

I inspected a gym that had their roof fixed and replaced twice before I came in. When I went into the property I noticed that there was actually a big condensation issue. I also took note on how when the humidity from the showers met the different temperature from the colder air it condensed into water. This caused it to run down the walls and leave mold like streaks all over them. This meant the building had a poorly insulated ceiling. I then provided them with a report on how to properly remediate this. All they needed to do was dehumidify, improve the insulation, and a more efficient use of air conditioning. Many companies will spend money on work they do not need, that’s why it’s important to get the property tested before any work is done.

Why should a prospective client choose you to perform their mold inspection?:

I do not only provide great service at the time of the inspection I also make sure that I am available for any questions after the inspection has been completed. I go over the report and lab results with the client so they can have a clear understanding on what they need to get done and what was found in the property. I am also always available to speak to clients months after their inspection has been completed. I am always happy to go into depth as much as possible to make sure the client understands and is happy with the service I provided.


Mold Inspection & Testing Lafayette Indiana

For clients that do have elevated levels of mold in their property, we supply a full protocol for restoration. This includes a step-by-step procedure for how the job should be handled and who should be doing the work. Mold remediation is different than a typical remodeling job. When removing moldy 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 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 home or business.

When dealing with these kinds of issues in your house or business, you want to make sure that you use a company without a conflict of interest. Hiring a Lafayette, Indiana mold remediation company to complete 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 people 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 restoration companies would not bypass the opportunity for work by letting you know your concerns are unjustifiable.

Here at MI&T, we operate under a tough code of ethics. Our assessors are the best at determining whether or not you have a problem, where the source is, and giving you professional advice on how to fix it. So if you are worried about your indoor air quality, call the company you can trust at 317-759-8525. We are delighted to offer our services to all of the following cities around Lafayette,Indiana.
