When doing assessment on a mold contamination situation, a typical first step is the visual inspection of the home as well as the suspected areas of growth. We look for visible mould staining, as well as the source of the water that would be feeding the mold. We also look on the outside of your home for sources of intrusion, improper grading, etc..
We will take moisture readings, particle counts, barometric and psychometric readings as well if Asbestos is present it would also be noted and dealt with during the remediation process.
If the situation requires we can also do swab tests and have a 3rd party air sampling taken so that the level of mould spores as well as the family of mold can be determined. Following the remediation clearance testing could also be performed.
