What is an honest mold inspection anyway?

1. We provide honest and trustworthy scientific and medically researched information and standards, without scaring the client with mis-information or pseudoscience.

2. Most mold inspection companies give you a low price over the phone, but then raise prices once they are there. We do things different by giving you one set price for everything.

3. We don’t make up our own way of doing a visual assessment during the mold inspection. Instead, we use ASTM D7338, Standard Guide for Assessment Of Fungal Growth In Buildings as an assessment protocol, along with National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s Dampness and Mold Assessment Tool to make sure you get a legitimate and thorough inspection.

Can you make money off of your recommendations?

No. While the vast majority of mold inspectors can make additional money on their recommendations by writing remediation protocols ($350) and do remediation clearance testing ($475), we feel this is a conflict of interest and to be honest ... a little bit of a scam. There are two types of licenses in Texas. One is a MAC, which can make money off of their recommendations and the other is a MAT, which can't make money off of remediation. We chose to be a MAT, so that you can trust what we say.

How do people become ill from mold?

 Surprisingly, many people do not get ill from mold, but from mold byproducts. Byproducts like mold volatile organic compounds, mycotoxins, endotoxins, proteins and other byproducts. This is why many do not get sick from mold, even though a large area of mold growth exist ... no byproducts are being produced. Likewise, many people can become sick when no mold growth is seen. You need someone who understands this.

Does removing mold help improve illness?

 Many mold inspectors find mold and their clients spend thousands of dollars in remediation cost, but have no improvement in health symptoms. Why? The inspector only knows enough to find mold and have it removed and not enough education or experience in industrial hygiene. As crazy sounding as it seems ... many people can be exposure to mold, without any mold growth occurring. We understands how this can happen.

I’m a real estate agent and need someone who won’t scare my client unnecessarily. Do you work well with Realtors?

We understand you have worked hard to find the buyer/seller the perfect deal and you don’t need someone to break the deal or make a minor problem into a major problem.

I’m a landlord and/or property manager working with a difficult tenant. Do you have any experience with these types of situations?

We only discuss our findings with you and not with the tenant. However, we are very personable and most all tenants find us easy to work with. There is a fine line and we understand this.

At the last minute, the appraiser/home inspector noticed some mold and the mortgage company is requesting an inspection. Can you help?

We help calm the fears of the mortgage or insurance company and provide simple recommendations to quickly get the sale back on schedule.

I’m a builder and have a new home buyer who is getting spooked by some minor mold. How do you approach this?

We do work for many home builders and know how to professionally deal with the buyer, but keep information private for the builder.
