What do I get for that price?

We test the indoor air for elevation of ...

  1. Mold Spores - Inhalation of mold spores is the primary cause of mold illness.

  2. Mold Spore Chains - If mold spores are connected (chain) together, this let's us know that active growing mold is occuring.

  3. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) - The cause of many illness is the chemical gas produced by mold growth.

  4. Dust Mites - When mold grows, so does the population of dust mites.

  5. Insect Parts - Mold needs water to grow and with this water, insects start having babies.

  6. Carbon Dioxide - Mold produces carbon dioxide.

We also check for elevation of ...

  1. Pollen

  2. Dander

  3. Formaldehyde

  4. Carbon Monoxide

The reason we check for these is that they can mimic mold health symptoms.

Visual Assessment

A visual assessment will be done using state of the art equipment like borescopes, thermal imaging, moisture meters and other measuring equipment when required.

Report

At the end of the inspection, we will give you a verbal assessment of what we found.  Then a formal report will be emailed to you, which will go over everything and give you recommendations and options.

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.

Q:  What is an honest mold inspection anyway?

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.

Q:  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.
