A mold inspection can be preventative or needed as a result of a problem, such as a water leak, visual mold findings, or health concerns. A comprehensive investigation includes a complete visual analysis of the premises, moisture testing with a digital moisture meter, leak detection, and sample collection for laboratory analysis.
Our sampling includes Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) samples and surface samples in our basic mold inspection package. We offer many different types of sampling and are able to adjust to the needs of our clients. Our package price includes all the laboratory fees for the samples taken, a full report which includes the visual inspector’s notes/recommendations and an estimate to remediate any areas that are found to have fungal contamination/recommendations and an estimate to remediate any areas that are found to have fungal contamination.
The method of choice for assessing potential exposures to airborne molds and mycotoxins in indoor environments involves the collection and identification of fungal propagules. Currently, there are numerous sampling methods available to measure fungal concentrations in the environment. Source sampling, which includes methods such as swab, tape, bulk, and dust, is commonly used to identify indoor fungi.
Air sampling is one of the most common methods used to assess fungal levels in indoor environments. Many studies have related human health effects, such as increases in allergic and asthmatic respiratory symptoms, to airborne fungal spores. As the health effects of fungal exposure are mainly respiratory, air sampling is believed to be adequate to represent the exposure.
Remediation is the process of removing the fungal contaminated building materials from the project site. The remediation effort should be accomplished in a controlled environment. The preparations to the affected areas normally involve the isolation of the space from the remainder of the building in order to prevent the cross-contamination of unaffected areas. Following this, special pre-written protocols are followed to properly treat and/or remove the contaminated areas using special tools, chemicals, and equipment.
Home Inspection/Building Inspection
Our home inspections ensure any area of concern is identified and noted to have the proper repairs performed. It is important to check and verify the life safety and health concerns in your residence or building. Many accidents and catastrophes can be avoided by being aware of and repairing any problem areas. Our inspections include a comprehensive check of the entire property. Indoor-Air Services puts the safety of our residential and commercial clients first.
Water Damage Assessment, Cleanup, and Repair
Water damage, sudden or gradual, is one of the most common restoration issues that homeowners experience. Most water damage results from ground flooding or a leak in the roof or a water/sewer pipe. Acting quickly and intelligently will make it less likely that serious structural, contents, or mold damage will occur. Our specialists can act quickly to rapidly remove water and moisture from the property using professional specialty equipment. Using these techniques and equipment, even moisture that has reached cavities in the floor and walls can be reached.
Fire and Smoke Damage Cleanup and Repair
Fire and smoke can be devastating for a property. Structural integrity is compromised by the fire while smoke penetrates the structure's contents with odors. We offer many fire-related recovery services, some which can be completed in a matter of days. Some of these services include: emergency water extraction, demolition and reconstruction/restoration, contents cleaning, and odor removal.
Lead, Asbestos, Radon, Allergen, Water, Soil and Other Contaminant Testing
Sampling can be performed for possible air, surface, and/or water contamination. This testing can detect allergens and special substances such as lead, asbestos, radon, mercury, and several others. Indoor-Air Services special substance testing also includes methamphetamine residue testing and sewage contamination analysis. A report of laboratory findings and an analysis report by a specialist are issued to the client following the inspection.
