OUR 6 STEP PROCESS

LEARN

The client is the first step to updating our consultants on the current issues the occupants and building are experiencing. This information from the client may lead to clues in identifying sources of contamination. We spend time with them on the phone and face to face to get familiar with everything we can about the present conditions of the building.

INVESTIGATE

We begin with the outside looking for water infiltration points. Inside, checking all water sources and other components of the structure to distinguish any proof of noticeable water harm or mold development. We check inside the HVAC systems/ ductwork and utilize technologies such as infrared cameras and moisture meters. Allowing us to see beyond the naked eye, within wall, floor and ceiling cavities for potential source areas that could be leading to poor indoor air quality.

TEST

After the inspection is performed, our Consultant will review and discuss all the areas of concern and suspect areas of contamination. Then they will develop a sampling strategy that is specific to what was discovered during the inspection to validate the presence of mold, mycotoxins, or other indoor pathogens.

ANALYZE

All samples are sent to third-party accredited laboratories for analysis. Upon receipt of the lab results, our team of consultants reviews the information and notes from the inspection.

REPORT

After each investigation, we will put together a detailed report with pictures of observations, test results, remediation protocols and considerations for next steps.

EDUCATE

This report is the action plan for next steps, it is very important that it is understood. We take the time to walk our clients through the report and lab results to make sure they understand what the next steps should be and answer any questions.

INFRARED INSPECTIONS

CMI’s infra-red inspection allows for a non-intrusive thermal assessment to determine potential hidden moisture and water problems in areas such as finished basements, wall and ceiling cavities, ceilings, high water table areas, flood prone basements and rooms, pipe leaks, roof leaks and more.

What they say about us
We had water coming in around the front window of the study that leak to the bottom of the wall. We had no idea where the water was coming from or how the water was getting in. Certified Mold Inspections came out and with their Infra-camara they were able to show us not only the extent of the damage but more importantly how it was coming in.

Accomplished Designer
Certified Mold Inspections was prompt thorough and professional when it came to inspecting our home. We knew we had a problem because shortly after moving into our new home both myself and our children started to experience unexplained respiratory problems. Our Doctor suggested we have are home inspected for mold. Certified Mold Inspections was able to assist us in identifying where the mold was and more importantly directing us on the proper way to remediate.

Web Consultant
I was so impressed with the inspection plan Certified Mold Inspection followed when inspecting our new home purchase. They were extremely thorough. They looked for mold in places that I would never have thought to look. I was provided with a comprehensive detailed report which included pictures of the affected areas, lab results and observation and recommendation summary of suggested next steps.

Air Sampling ; The Air Sampling cassette is a sampling device designed for the rapid collection and analysis of a wide range of airborne aerosols. These include fungal spores, pollen, insect parts, skin cell fragments, fibers, and inorganic particulates. Air enters the cassette, the particles become impacted on the sampling substrate, and the air leaves through the exit orifice. The airflow and patented cassette housing is designed in such a way that the particles are distributed and deposited equally on a special glass slide contained in the cassette housing called the “trace.”

Surface Samples ;  Tape lift, bulk and swab sampling, are techniques used for direct examination. A direct exam allows for the immediate determination of the presence of fungal spores as well as what types of fungi are present. Direct examinations should only be used to sample visible mold growth in a contaminated area since most. Most surfaces collect a mixture of fungal spores that are normally present in the environment.

Studies of more than 500 examples, if your doctor presumes you are being exposed to mold in your home that is affecting your wellbeing, there is a strong probability that they are right. Consequently, the environmental assessment and testing of your home for mold and mycotoxins is a basic step to understanding the dimension of contamination and building up the best fitting remediation plan so you can get back on a way to healthy wellbeing.
