MI&T offers unbiased Sacramento mold testing without a conflict of interest. Our skilled assessors will answer all the questions that you have about these frustrating problems and find out once and for all whether you have a mold problem or not. Our sample collection offers physical evidence of exactly what you are breathing in on a consistent basis.
We get you answers by performing mold testing along with a detailed visual inspection by our technician. Free mold inspections do not include this service and are quite simply just guessing at what is going on in your home or business. Air sample collection gives you hard evidence about the current state of your air quality. We can take samples of air from areas you smell or see something out of the ordinary. If there are small indications of excess moisture on a wall we can do in-wall samples to conclude if there is a problem beneath the surface. Surface sample collection is used when visible mold growth is present. Certain species of fungus are not easily airborne unless disturbed; this includes the feared toxic black mold stachybotrys. Identifying the species present is essential in determining whether or not the issue could be handled by yourself or calls for professional intervention.
My name is Jason Ramirez and I am a mold inspector with MI&T. I have been with MI&T for 2 years however I have worked in construction for over 25yrs. This has given me the knowledge to efficiently find leaks/ the source of moisture that creates mold growth. I live in Sacramento and have been here for 30 years. I love Sacramento due its diversity geologically and racially. I love to meet new people and learn about their cultures. I like that I am able to explore the many beautiful swimming holes here along with being close enough to drive to the surrounding beaches, lakes, hiking trails and camping areas. I also lived and still have family in the bay area so I don’t mind driving for inspections in this area.
Being a mold inspector is very rewarding to me. I like helping people and I pay attention to detail. I am able to notice things others don’t. I like the challenge it brings me to find the source of water intrusion or moisture. It's also nice to be able to meet new people every day.
One of the many inspections I am particularly proud of was a family that had a newborn baby and an elderly parent living with them. The baby was having breathing and skin issues and the parent was also having health issues. After doing the inspection I was able to inform them that they did in fact have a mold issue. This mold in particular could possibly cause hemorrhaging in newborns lungs and other health issue in general. After informing the family they were able to have the remediation done and remove all the mold. I later received a call from them thanking me cause the baby and the elderly parent were getting better since they were no longer breathing in all the mold.
As your mold inspector I do my best not to miss a possible issue. I personally had a daughter that had leukemia and mold was a big issue for her so I try to be as thorough as possible. I move boxes, small furniture, carpets etc.…. things that could possibly hide a possible mold issue. I use a moisture meter, an infrared camera if a leak is suspected, smoker to test ventilation/ exhaust fans. I also have a tool to test humidity in your home.
Mold Inspection & Testing Sacramento
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. Sacramento 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 Sacramento 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.
