What do I get for that price?

Mold Air Testing

  1. Includes air test in each major room to see if there is the possibility of excessive mold spores in the air.  This is done by measuring the 2.5 micron sized particles, which are the size of most mold spores.

  2. All rooms will be air tested again measuring the volatile organic compounds (VOC).  Actively growing mold produces VOCs, which can also cause health symptoms.

  3. Additionally, one or more laboratory air sample will be taken if needed to confirm what type of mold is there.  Is it black toxic mold or some other type of mold?

Surface and Hidden Mold

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

Air Testing for Other Contaminants

When mold grows, other contaminants grow.  Around 52% of the time, individuals are having health symptoms not from mold, but from these other pollutants.  So we also test for ...

  1. Formaldehyde

  2. VOCs

  3. Carbon Dioxide

  4. Carbon Monoxide

  5. Ammonia

  6. Sulfur Dioxide

  7. Nitrogen Dioxide

  8. Dust Mites, Pollen and other allergens.

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.
