Describe an inspection that you are particularly proud of: (Specifics on mold issue, Client relationship, What was rewarding about it)
Several years ago, I was hired to inspect an apartment for a young lady that lived with her infant daughter. As I approached the home, I could smell the pungent odor of mold and knew that it was not a good situation for someone to be living in. I inspected the apartment from top to bottom and tested in the areas that showed visible growth growing and even mushrooms in the kitchen. I was able to determine that the source of the moisture was a roof-boot leak in the wall between the kitchen and the bathroom. Because of the work of MI&T and my report she was able to have the property properly remediated. Doing a job that really helps people be more safe and have a better life is truly satisfying.

Mold Inspection & Testing Overland Park Kansas
For clients that do have elevated levels of mold in their property, we supply a comprehensive protocol for removal. This includes a step-by-step process for how the work 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 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 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 residence or business.
When dealing with these sort of issues in your residence or business, you want to make sure that you use a company without a conflict of interest.
