Advanced moisture detectors

2. High-Tech Thermal Scanning

We use the latest technology in mold inspection equipment to locate hidden moisture in walls, ceilings and crawl spaces. Our infrared cameras precisely map all affected areas.

3. Sample Collection for Analysis

Our technicians work with industry-approved collection methods including swab and bio-slide. Often, we bring in a mold hygienist to perform spore counts and take additional samples.

4. Reporting Results

Our mold inspectors share the conclusions of the lab tests with you and provide you with recommendations for the next steps. If the assessment indicates that you have a mold problem and you give us the “go,” our experts get to work right away to remove mold.

5. Complete Mold Remediation

We start the mold remediation process with bio-hazard containment followed by thorough mold cleanup. Our mold remediation services restore your property and belongings to their original condition.

6. Post-Remediation Confirmation

After completing our mold remediation process, we give your property a final inspection. This phase includes air sample analysis by a mold hygienist to confirm that your property is completely mold-free.
