Are you suffering from allergies, asthma, respiratory issues or other toxin illnesses that are treated by a medical professional? We understand that unless your home is healthy ecologically, you will not get fully well.
When we work with you and your medical professional, we take a three-step approach to ensure your home will be free of airborne mold contaminants that could adversely affect your health.
Home Visit and Consultation
The first thing we do is visit you in your home so that we can discuss any water events that may have taken place and give your home a visual inspection. We thoroughly examine all areas, including attics, crawlspaces, basements, and any interior areas where water could be.
There are many issues that can cause mold to grow. Most of these are due to improper venting in an attic and/or leaks in basements and crawlspaces. Mold can grow at 40% relative humidity or higher, and it is not hard to reach 40% RH in our service area.
Further, basements and crawlspaces are prone to leaks, broken pipes, and high humidity. Over the years, we have found many sources of mold growth in homes – basement hoarding, homes built with molded wood, lack of a crawlspace vapor barrier, inadequate attic venting, and poor foundation grading are all examples of how water can enter a home and cause mold growth.
Much of our work is done either in basements, crawlspaces, and attics. Being a licensed builder, with over 25 years of experience, we review the home’s history with patients and thoroughly discuss any known water events, and can, therefore, ascertain the original cause of excess moisture in the home.
Your safety and health are very important to us. MoldPro provides total peace of mind that your remediation has been done correctly, and we can back up that claim with independent lab air testing. With independent mold clearance testing, you can be assured that your home has been returned to a normal, healthy, ecological condition.
We can do four types of mold testing – mold spore air testing, lift-tape sampling, ERMI and HERTSMI testing.
Mold spore air testing is usually used to test the air on a floor of the home (basement, first floor, second floor, etc.) or in a given area of the home. It helps to define where the mold concentrations are highest in the home and identify where to focus the remediation.
Lift-tape samples are used to take a small portion from a solid surface, like wood, to determine exactly what type of mold is on that surface.
ERMI and HERTSMI testing are favored by some medical professionals. These tests help to provide a mold historical record for the home.
