WHO WE ARE
Experiencing allergies? Discover how our experts are helping people like you. We test your property for mold and air quality.
Since 2004, we’ve helped manage those with complex medicinal issues back to health through the ecological assessment of their homes and structures. We recognize the source of mold, mycotoxins, and other indoor natural pathogens, and create a guide for remediation and proceeded with upkeep.
Our focus is to help guide those with complex medical issues back to health through the environmental assessment of their homes and buildings. We identify sources of mold, mycotoxins, and other indoor environmental pathogens, then create roadmaps for restoration, continued maintenance and proper re-build and design.
Certified Mold Inspections has been performing indoor air quality testing for over a decade. Every indoor air quality inspection and assessment project is personally supervised and conducted by a trained Certified Mold Inspector and Certified Indoor Environmentalist committed to providing the highest in standards of skill and practice in the mold inspection profession. We use a wealth of technology to assist in this process and send all samples to a third party accredited lab to provide you with the most accurate results.
What separates us from our competitors is our detailed inspection process and thorough follow up report. After each investigation we will put together a detailed report with pictures of observations, test results, remediation protocols and considerations for next steps.
Our thorough and detail oriented inspection process is set to achieve two goals.
Identify the Source Areas: Are there current or previous conditions in the building that are allowing for mold and other indoor pathogens to grow?
Identify Cross Contamination: How are these source areas dispersing or cross-contaminating the general living spaces and/or heating and air conditioning systems?
Understanding these two components is extremely important. This gives us a picture of the whole home and allows us to set the necessary remediation strategy and next step action items.
Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS)
According to Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker (a top authority on mold illness), 24% of the population has a genetic defect that makes them susceptible to chronic mold illness. That’s almost 80 million people in the U.S. alone.
According to CDC, approximately 300,000 people per year are diagnosed with Lyme Disease. Extrapolate that over just the last 10 years, and there at least 3 million additional people with mold susceptibility in the U.S.
According to Mary Arkerly, prolonged mold exposure increases the risk of being diagnosed with a mood disorder like depression by 45%. According to Dr. Shoemaker, 25% of the population is susceptible to bio-toxin related illnesses.
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), approximately 24 million Americans suffer from autoimmune disease, and that the prevalence is rising. Some examples include Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Multiple Sclerosis, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Psoriasis/Psoriatic Arthritis.
People with asthma who are allergic to mold tend to have reduced lung function, increased hospital visits and may even die from asthma-related illnesses.
Like any allergy, mold allergy symptoms are triggered by an overly sensitive immune system response. When inhaled tiny, airborne mold spores the body recognizes them as foreign invaders and develops allergy-causing antibodies to fight them.
