If you are observing strange conditions in the indoor environment of your home or business in the wonderful area of Smithville, Texas, you may have a problem with mold. Unless you have dealt with problems like this before, chances are that you are not sure where to turn or what to do next. That’s where Mold Inspection & Testing comes in! The experts at MI&T Smithville, Texas are here to assist home and business owners just like yourself who are anxious mold may be negatively impacting their indoor air quality.
Elevated mold for an indoor environment is not something that should be taken carelessly. Current studies show that breathing in the spores that are released into the air by this fungus on a consistent basis can have serious health implications; this is particularly true for the young and elderly, as well as those with pre-existing conditions. Unfortunately, companies that handle the remediation of these types of problems often take advantage of people’s concerns in order to get more work. Other than giving you the steps to treat a problem, we are not associated with any part of the restoration process. For this reason, you can trust that the results you get from us are in fact accurate.

Describe an inspection that you are particularly proud of: (Specifics on mold issue, Client relationship, What was rewarding about it)
I had a client that had just moved into a home, he and his family started to become ill with symptoms of sneezing, coughing, and general overall fatigue (believe it or not, he had an exotic cat which was actually sneezing while I was there at the home for the inspection, this was one of the reasons he called us as well, he said his cat had been sneezing since they moved in). I did my inspection and found suspect areas in the basement where there was moisture in the crawlspace, and a musty smell. I recorded the moisture levels in my report and collected air samples throughout the home. After receiving the air sample results from the lab, it was determined that they had extremely high levels of Penicillium/Aspergillus molds spread through the air throughout the entire home from the basement. I made recommendations to the client to mitigate the issues, and within a few days time the home was healthy, and the client was extremely happy that all of their adverse symptoms subsided (including the cat)(true story). The client had me back to his home weeks later to retest the indoor space for reassurance, and we were all happy to find that the mold had not returned. I am happy to know that I was instrumental in helping them live a healthier lives by improving their indoor environment.
