Mold Testing and Consultation

Mold? Why should I be concerned?

When we need a consultant, we only use the very best.  All of our mold samples are evaluated by U.S. Micro Solutions.  A nationally accredited Laboratory that happens to be local. Check out their web site for more information than you ever wanted to know about mold, bacterial and many other environmental contamination.         

Under Construction

I took this photo during My trip to New Orleans in October 2005.  I was there as a Certified FEMA Damage Assessor to help with the hurricane Katrina aftermath.  This apartment was under water for over 2 weeks.  If you look through the doorway, there is a water mark on the back wall.

Now this is extreme to be sure and you won't have anything like this (I hope) but all of the same elements that were here can be in your home, given the right conditions.

Humidity is the key.  It must be kept below 50%. 

  • I always suggest a dehumidifier in basements and potential damp areas.
  • Fix any plumbing or foundation leaks as soon as they are discovered.
  • Ventilation under the right weather conditions.  If it's raining or the humidity is high outside, it can do more harm than good.
  • For small amounts, clean the affected area.
  • If the area is larger than say 2 square feet or it comes back after you have cleaned it, you may need professional help.
