Whether it be helping them find out what the source of their mold problem is and what steps they need to take to have it restored back to a habitable environment. To helping them know what is going on in the house they are looking to purchase.
Describe an inspection that you are particularly proud of: (Specifics on mold issue, Client relationship, What was rewarding about it)
Last month I had a customer who could not enter the house. Every room in the house had mold in it. I was able to find out where the mold originated and document how the mold got moved around the house. Finding the source and how it cross contaminated the rest of the rooms allowed me to write a comprehensive report that provided the steps for removal. The client was so happy that she could shop around and get estimates and begin the process of having her home clean again.
Why should a prospective client choose you to perform their mold inspection?:
Clients should choose MI&T in the Boston area because I do my inspection slowly and I try to get everything covered using my tools and my experience. I don't belittle the customer and I provide easy-to-understand information. I am reliable and very knowledgeable and always have their best interest in mind.
Mold Inspection & Testing Lowell Massachusetts
For clients that do have elevated levels of mold in their residence, we supply a complete protocol for removal. This includes a step-by-step procedure for how the labor should be handled and who should be doing the work. Mold remediation is different than a typical 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 finished. 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 handyman 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 home or business.
When dealing with these types of issues in your home or business, you want to make sure that you use a company without a conflict of interest. Hiring a Lowell, Massacusetts 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 lucrative job. As we already mentioned, sometimes clients 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 restoration companies would not bypass the opportunity for work by letting you know your concerns are unwarranted.
Here at Mold Inspection & Testing, we operate under a strong code of ethics. Our assessors are the best at determining whether or not you have a problem, where the source is, and giving you expert advice on how to remediate it.
