Many people wonder if they really need a mold inspection before trying to get rid of the problem. Well if you think your home or business has a problem, the answer to this question is absolutely YES. The fact is that the people who do mold removal specialize in just that, removing mold. They do not have the same experience and necessary equipment as we do when it comes to finding mold hiding in your home or business. Even if they did it is important to get your inspection and testing done by someone other than the person doing the removal. This way you can find out exactly what needs to be done and nothing more; you save money in the long run. It is also important to have an independent testing company on your side for when it comes time to do a clearance test. This is done post remediation to ensure the removal company has completely removed both the source and lingering mold spores in the air throughout the home or business.

One final note: If you know that you have a mold problem and are confident that you know of the only source of the problem and how far it has spread, then you may be able to hire a mold removal company right from the start. However, in cases of water damage where the home or business owner is insured it would still be wise to contact us first. Our inspection and testing can show that a problem exists and needs to be addressed. Whether or not this is covered is determined by the insurance policy as well as the individual case. An insurance company may be quick to tell you that you are not covered, but we can take a closer look at your policy to make sure.
Also, make sure to get a clearance test after the remediation is complete. Our clearance testing will ensure that the company completed the job and took all of the necessary steps to getting your home or business back to normal.
