MOLD INSPECTIONS, SURVEY AND MOLD TESTING.

Mold Cleanup should be done as soon as possible after the problem has been identified. If the conditions are right, mold can grow and spread in a house within days. If you had water damage and need work done, we advise not to wait for the insurance company to make their determination. Take care of the problem ASAP to limit the damage. We do insurance work and are willing to wait with payment, in some cases, until the insurance company pay.

There is no time to allow biohazard jobs be handled by a "contractor in training". Indoor pollutants causing "Sick Building Syndrome", SBS, is not only hazardous to your health but also hazardous to the economic life of your home, business or commercial building.

Serious health problems may develop from toxic mold and can occur a short time after a leak has occurred. Leaking roofs, leaking galvanized steel pipes, leaking copper pipes, water intrusion from soil and other problems can cause mold start to grow in homes and offices, old and new. Mold can develop in days and start release spores in the air inside a home causing habitants to develop asthma, allergies, lung problem, breathing problem, memory loss, and more. An initial survey may catch a growing problem early to eliminate the risk of mold spreading to the interior and contaminate furniture and personal property.

We have performed mold abatement, cleanup, leak detection, mold testing drainage consulting issues, on hundreds of projects the last 6 years. Mold and biological cleanup has been done in homes, apartment buildings, office buildings, stores, hotels, hospitals, schools, churches, and other buildings.
A successful project will require,
(1) finding the source or sources of contamination, (2) testing, (3) sealing to eliminate continued leaks or growth, (4) containment to prevent spread of spores, (5) removal and proper disposal of walls or ceilings, (6) cleaning of building components, (7) using applicable chemicals at correct dose, concentration and application, (8) allow drying time, (9) application of secondary chemicals, (10) final test. There are additional steps involved but to many to list. Every stage of the process is important to eliminate the risk for reoccurrence or exposure to workers and building inhabitants.

We provide the following services;

  • Highly experienced and qualified inspectors for Inspection,
    survey, testing for mold and water damage.
    We provide turnkey projects and solutions, not only testing
    and not only repair and abatement.
  • Testing for Vapor Emissions in concrete slabs.
  • Removal of mold infested building materials, drying and s
    alvage of documents and equipment.
  • Cleaning, decontamination of mold infested personal
    items in homes or offices.
  • Repair and installation of new building materials, as walls,
    ceilings, floors, roof, ducting, etc.
  • Insulating buildings using impermeable insulation materials
    in walls or under floors in crawlspaces to prevent
    humidity to intrude.
  • Rental of Effective Ozone gas generators.
    Ozone generators will kill mold and eliminate odors.
  • Rental of HEPA air cleaners with bio hazards destruction filters.

A qualified, reputable abatement firm like ours should always be used to ensure that airborne contaminants are controlled and that the problem is permanently solved and will not reoccur. Our approach is to do the job right the first time while saving our client money. We can have your problem assessed, tested, and a plan of action and cleanup work underway within a couple of days. Examples of projects can be found here. Corporate clients and agencies are advised to sign a retainer agreement with our firm to ensure timely response in emergency events. We can have technicians and cleanup crew or testing underway within hours for clients who we have retainer agreements with.

For additional information, initial consultation, proposal on mold abatement, mold and biohazard testing, or air quality testing, Please contact us at 800-606-8007

We have added Thermal Scanning Camera Inspections to our Mold Inspection services. The tool is mainly used to locate and pinpoint sources of leaks and water intrusion in buildings eliminating the need for destructive source finding. The method is most efficient shortly after a leak occurred and less effective when no moisture remain in the building material. It can collect Color thermal images that can be e-mailed to client or used for documentation in reports. Go to the link above to find out more. Contact us for a demo.

HEPA air scrubbers for Mold Cleanup and mold Removal projects.

Removing mold damaged material may release millions of potentially harmful mold spores in the air. The mold particles will flow out to all areas nearby and further unless the work area is properly contained and the airflow is controlled using HEPA air scrubbers and HEPA negative air machines.

Few mold cleanup jobs are properly contained since inexperienced work crew do most mold jobs. This may result in health problems for occupants of affected homes, apartments or offices.
One effective way to reduce the risk of health problems for occupant for future occupants and litigation is to properly contain the work area and to install HEPA negative air machined for the duration of the removal, cleanup work plus a few days after the completed removal to clean the residual air borne mold spores.
We have successfully completed hundred of mold cleanup jobs over the last 15 years. We have provided equipment for other contractors, to building owners for mold removal jobs.
We have significant experience and can assist in any type of complicated mold removal job or water damage restoration job.
Call us today for a free estimate for rental equipment, mold removal or to consult in how to properly complete your project.
