If you feel that your home or business may have a problem with mold, MI&T can help you get the answers you are looking for. We choose not to take part in the mold removal process as we believe it is a conflict of interest. It is important to use a company that takes this approach so you can get an unbiased assessment of your property. Inspect only has been our policy from day 1. Be very aware of this fact as most companies that deal with this sort of thing are involved in both aspects. Our reputation for excellence is so strong because we avoid this and fill a need in the industry.
You have probably come across our website because you have experienced something out of the ordinary and it has caused you concerned.

At the same time, we have no problem letting our clients know that fungal growth is NOT the issue and they need to continue their search elsewhere.

I like helping clients solve their mold problems that leads to healthy lives for them.
Describe an inspection that you are particularly proud of: (Specifics on mold issue, Client relationship, What was rewarding about it).
In 2015 I was assigned to conduct a mold inspection for the purposes of developing a mold remediation protocol, at a luxury hotel in Austin, Texas. All of the guest rooms and many common areas on the 1st floor in the six floor hotel experienced water damage that was introduced into the wall cavities on the exterior and demising walls of the guest rooms. Subsequently mold growth was discovered when the restoration company was called in to expeditiously remove all the wet Building materials before mold starts to grow. THIs is a losing battle, because in South Texas mold will grow in 3 days if the wet materials are not dried out aggressively. This job ended being a multimillion dollar project for my client. Who did not hire a project manager consultant to manage the coordination between the restoration company the insurance adjustors and their mold consultants and me. Oh, yes they brought in their own mold consultant to check on my work because they were paying the claim, so they wanted to make sure that what I was recommending was accurate. My Client allowed the hotel manager to do this coordination. The reason that this is the highlight of my career is because I was able to convince all the parties involved that my fulltime presence was essential, so they paid me to be onsite for three months straight, because I helped the project progress quickly, being Onsite, ready to conduct assessments and clearances immediately.
Why should a prospective client choose you to perform their mold inspection?
Because of my experience in conducting over 1,000 residential and commercial mold inspections. I have seen the worst cases scenarios and have experience in dealing with clients directly and with insurance companies. I have testified in court as an expert witness because my clients have sued for payment of claims or have been sued. I have been asked to explain my mold inspection results. I had a wealthy client that manages high end hotel and resort properties. I conducted 4 mold inspections at four of their properties in the Dallas, Texas area in 2015. They had two insurance carriers on their properties, the insurance would only pay them 25% of all the millions of mold remediation and rebuilding that occurred in 2015. They sued. I was contacted by their lawyers because my name and license was on the mold Remediation Protocols for four of the properties.The lawyer for client called me a week after my testimony informing me that the insurance companies decided to settle out of court with my client. I just don’t like bullies even if they are bullying a wealthy client.
Mold Inspection & Testing San Antonio
Our inspectors’s experience along with state of the art tools allow our inspectors to locate where mold is hiding in order to cause the problems you are experiencing. The most valuable service we offer is mold testing, this is where we take air and surface samples that are sent off to a independent laboratory for analysis. Whenever you see someone offering a “free inspection,” you can be sure that sample collection is not included. We let everyone who calls know that this is the most important part of the process. All the tests we collect offer hard evidence and proof of what is happening in your home or business. If someone is skipping this step, they are simply guessing at what is happening with your indoor air quality.
After lab analysis, we interpret the results and make a final determination about whether or not you have a mold issue in your home or business. For cases that do indeed have elevated levels of mold, we create a detailed report that includes a step-by step guide for removal. This will be very vital information to make sure whoever does the work gets the job finished correctly the first time. It is also very valuable because it lets you know exactly what steps do and do not need to be taken. This sort of work can get quite costly.

Richard Thomas (Alamo Heights, TX)
I had an inspection done on a condo in Alamo Heights I am considering purchasing after I found out about a water leak it had and I found their service to be excellent. The inspector arrived on time and did a very thorough examination of the property. He explained what he was doing and why, and answered all my questions. The initial results came the next day, as promised, along with a full report. The report was very detailed and the explanations, analysis and recommendations were clear. I had no idea about this sort of thing but am happy I found a company like MI&T to guide me through the process.
