A complete inspection with thermal imaging camera, moisture meter, along with air and surface sample collection will give you information that will benefit you in many ways. The mold removal process is much more intensive and requires many more steps than a typical remodeling. Our report will give precise details on if there is a problem, what the source is, and exactly how to fix it. It is possible that your results come back not elevated or small enough that you can clean up on your own; consider yourselves the lucky ones. The other side of things is when we recommend hiring a mold remediation company to return the indoor air quality to normal.
The tools that our certified mold inspectors use allow them to see what is going on beneath the surface at things the naked eye simply can not see. This information is used when presenting the proper plan for collecting samples for analysis. We can collect air from general living areas or cavity samples to see what is going on behind dry or other building material. Each of these air tests will be compared to an outside sample that serves as a baseline number. Acceptable levels of mold are relative to that found outside in your area, so that sample is taken to see what should be “normal” for your home or business. Whenever there is visible mold, a surface sample is recommended. Toxic black mold and other species that are concerning are not easily airborne so we want to make sure those are not present as well. Swabs and tape lifts are also useful in confirming the source of a problem.
For individuals in landlord disputes or looking to file an insurance claim to cover a San Francisco mold remediation, our service is invaluable.

The health of you and those around you should be priority number one and we make sure that all the necessary steps are taken to return the property in question back to normal on the first go around.
