Your property can harbor allergens, carcinogens, and VOCs in the air you breathe. Worsened allergies, respiratory diseases, and even heart disease can be linked back to the cleaners, paints, and varnishes we use in our daily lives. Our team has the skills and the tools to measure toxicity levels in your home and business.
- Mold and mildew
- Surface and waterborne bacteria
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
Besides mold being the obvious culprit and usual suspect, lackadaisical property maintenance is the leading cause of mold and water damage. It is very common to see buildings and homes that are many decades old with the same plumbing systems in place as when the structure was built. We see all sorts of roofing and window systems in complete disrepair and sprinkler systems that water the building more than the landscape.
The list goes on, but the result is the same: expensive repairs. We advise that homeowners and building managers inspect their properties a few times a year for defects and issues that can become major issues that can become major problems down the road. Often these small inspections cost vert little and can save thousands. When it comes to mold, an ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure.
It can be difficult to know for certain if mold is growing or not. If you recently had a water emergency such as a burst pipe, flooded basement, or malfunctioning appliance, mold could develop from any residual dampness. Additionally, mold spores can irritate the eyes, nose, or throat. They can cause skin rashes and worsen breathing disorders. If you have experienced any of these events or symptoms, you may be at risk.

One of our certified mold technicians will provide a thorough inspection, including testing potential mold to safeguard the health and safety of your property and the people in it. If testing reveals a mold problem, we can provide prompt and professional mold remediation services.
Many times mold is hidden behind structures such as walls, ceilings, and ductwork. Mold produces a musty odor which may be the first indication of the problem. A visual mold inspection is the most important step in identifying a possible mold problem. Once the mold growth is discovered, testing devices such as moisture meters, humidity gauges, bore scopes, and digital cameras can confirm the visual inspection, determine the source of leaks or moisture, and the conditions promoting mold growth.
Before performing any remediation (removal) of mold, our team will provide a detailed, written, and cost-effective recommendation based on our testing and inspection.
