WE CONDUCT ACCURATE MOLD ASSESSMENT
Mold can cause severe damage to the property. A mold assessment is the only way to determine the extent of this damage. Here Licensed Mold Assessor performs an inspection and provides an estimate and schedule is prepared accordingly.
Multiple steps are involved in the complete Mold Assessment:
- Locate Mould:
The first step of an assessment is to determine whether mold is growing. Mold spores are everywhere, but moisture and food sources are necessary for spores to thrive and multiply. A homeowner can look for signs of visible mold. If a musty odor is present but no signs of mold or mildew are apparent, we search for hidden mold.
- Determine Growth
Once it has been established that mold is growing, the extent of an infestation is the most important issue. Remediating a minor mold problem may cost several thousand dollars, but a major problem can end up costing tens of thousands of dollars.
- Identify the Species
A homeowner will probably not be able to identify which type of mold is present without lab analysis. We take samples and provide accurate results as part of a mold assessment. If black mold or another oxygenic species is growing, remediation may require specialized equipment.
- Obtain Remediation Estimates
A mold cleanup and remediation service can provide an estimate. Licensed Mold Assessor will factor in the equipment, methods, and labor costs which is necessary to stop mold growth and eliminate the residual effects of an infestation.
- Make a Restoration Schedule
The final stage of an assessment involves determining the length of the remediation process. A mold cleanup service is scheduled once the extent of the infestation and species are known.
Each of these steps is carried out on mandatory purpose for an accurate mold assessment.
