If you believe that you may have an indoor mold growth problem and are unsure what to to do next, pick up the phone and call MI&T to schedule you Shreveport Mold Inspection. We’ll make an appointment for one of our certified mold inspectors to come out to the property that you are concerned about and perform an evaluation. While on site they will also complete mold testing to get a clear picture of current state of the indoor air quality. After they leave, the samples collected are submitted to a third party lab for analysis. Clients that do have elevated levels of mold spores are provided a detailed report for what needs to be done to fix the problems.
Mold people have been lucky enough to avoid needing a mold inspection in Shreveport. If you fall into that category, you may be wondering what exactly we do. Upon arrival, we’ll listen to your concerns and basically have you tell the inspector why you hired us. We usually start in the area that you are most concerned about and proceed to check all other areas as well. The inspector will be looking for water intrusion, excess moisture and visible mold. Detection tools like moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras are used to locate potential problems that cannot necessarily be seen with the naked eye.
Mold Inspection & Testing Shreveport Louisiana
Even if you can’t see visible growth, our Shreveport mold testing will be able to uncover potential growth. How can we possible do that you ask? Well we always start our inspections with an inside vs. outside air assessment. Even if there is visible growth we always test the air over everything. You see, there are mold spores all around us at low levels all the time. A comparison in a healthy home will show similar levels inside and out. In a residential or commercial property with a mold problem, the air sample inside will show elevated levels of certain mold and/or the presence of toxic black mold which should never be present. Air samples will detect a problem before it becomes visible or if someone is trying to cover it up with a simple temporary cleaning.
Customers that have mold tests showing elevated levels or problematic species are provided a detailed report with steps that should be completed by a professional mold remediation company. MI&T is a “test only” company that operates without a conflict of interest. Unfortunately our industry has caught some flak for unethical business practices and contractors taking advantage of people fearing mold problems. They exaggerate how bad an issue is in the hopes of gaining the removal work. We do not even offer these services so you do not have to worry about that with our inspections.
Hopefully this has enlightened you a little bit on our process. We have a great deal of information throughout the website and we invite you to research as much as possible to decide if this service is right for you. If you’d like to speak to someone personally we have customer service representatives standing by everyday. They’ll also be able to schedule your appointment if you do not want to book online.
