When looking for an individual to evaluate your home or business for potential indoor mold growth it is important to use someone that is not involved in the remediation process. That is exactly what 360 Inspections offers; unbiased mold testing without a conflict of interest.
Unless you have dealt with similar issues in the past, it is very common to be confused about the what to do and where to start. You might even be wondering why you need a mold inspection if you can actually see mold. Call for a free consultation, to ask a question specific to your situation we will be happy to help, just give us a call.
We are usually called into a home or business for one or more of the following reasons:
- Recent Water Damage
- Visible Growth
- Strange Smell
- Health Complications
- Looking For Peace of Mind
- Real Estate Transaction
We help people in all of the above situations find out not only if they have a problem, but also where the source is. What most restoration companies don’t want you to know is that not all mold is dangerous. Truth of the matter is mold is all around us and every indoor environment has acceptable levels. Any inspection that is done without testing is simply a guess at what is going on with your indoor air quality. Our service is so valuable because our air and surface samples offer hard evidence about what is going on in your home or business.
We have no problem letting our clients know that elevated conditions do not exist and no further action is required. However, when a problem is present we offer a detailed report with a step-by-step protocol for removal. In the long run, it is very likely that you are going to save money by spending some on getting an inspection first. Either you get peace of mind with our test results showing there is no problem or a mold is non-toxic. Or you save money going into the remediation process with our detailed protocol to ensure only necessary work is done and the job is done right the first time.
When looking for someone to handle work inside your home or business, we understand that customers want to work with a company they can trust. 360 Inspections operates under a strict code of ethics.
“I know I have mold, I can see it. Why do I need a mold inspection?” This is something that many people wonder and a question we get quite a bit, especially when trying to explain to other people about our business. Well you don’t NEED a mold inspection, but here is how clients do benefit from getting one and how our service is valuable. The most important thing that we offer is an evaluation of your indoor air quality. When indoor growth problems exist, they release thousands of spores into the air that have the potential to cause health problems. Without taking air samples, there is no way to determine how far this problem has spread. Most of the time when situations exist, we see elevated levels throughout the entire floor of a home or business. In order to fix these air problems, extensive air cleaning needs to take place. You should also understand that the visible growth that you see is often only the tip of the iceberg. Chances are once you see something on walls or furniture, a professional mold remediation will need to take place. Bringing us in first will allow you to go into that process informed and our report will lay out every step that needs to be taken. Knowing the scope of work will not only help keep costs low, but also make sure your indoor environment gets fixed correctly the first time. On the other side of things, if you do not see anything, but are experiencing other symptoms of a mold problem you may be right. Our expert inspectors have seen just about every situation that you could imagine. If what you are experiencing in your home or business is due to mold, we WILL find it and provide you with the information necessary to get rid of the problem.
If you do decide to go directly into the mold removal process, we highly recommend that you hire an inspector separate from the restoration company hired to complete post remediation clearance testing. Whenever a professional is brought in to clean an area, they should use a containment as the work they are doing is actually releasing a significant amount of mold spores into the air. At the same time they run air scrubbers to filter out these spores and return the area to normal. Clearance testing is done by taking an air sample from within a containment area to make sure the air has returned to normal. This should be done before the rebuild process so the company hired can do additional work if necessary.
