Trusted & Proven Mold Inspections
Trusted by the community in which we work and having provided 1000’s of mold assessments in Toronto and the GTA since 2005, there are a number of reasons that customers come to us seeking a reliable mold inspection. You may have seen or smelled mold in your home, perhaps your indoor environment has become excessively humid, or your family or co-workers have been showing signs of a respiratory ailment.
Whatever the reason, the mold inspection should be carried out by a certified mold inspector to ensure correct results and if detected, that proper mold removal and remediation steps are followed.
Our 6-Step Mold Inspection Process
We want the mold inspection process to be transparent and understandable to you, in order to ensure the best experience possible. Carried out by a certified mold inspector, our process involves 6 steps:
Step 1: Initial Consultation
You suspect the presence of mold based on the reasons provided and contact us for trusted, professional advice on the issue. Through this initial consultation we will help you to identify the possibility of the presence of mold. If it is determined that mold is indeed present, we proceed to the next step.
Step 2: Visual Inspection
One of our certified mold inspectors arrives at your home or business in an unmarked, unbranded vehicle to protect your privacy. We then:
- Look for visual signs of mold including water stains and moisture intrusion.
- Record humidity levels and temperatures from room-to-room.
- Check suspect areas with a surface moisture meter to detect moisture in wall cavities.
Step 3: Sampling
The visual inspection will indicate which rooms need to be air sampled along with an outdoor control sample. If a surface area is suspect, such as a carpet or piece of furniture, a swab or physical sample is taken and sent for 3rd party laboratory mold analysis testing.
Please note: During Steps 2 and 3, we use cutting-edge technology including infrared thermography by way of a thermal imaging camera, moisture meters (both penetrating and non-penetrating), boroscopes, and conduct temperature and humidity checks throughout your home.
Step 4: Reporting
Next, you will receive a written mold analysis report that will interpret the results, followed by recommendations. The lab results are legal documents and include individual identification numbers. This provides you with complete transparency, and the benefit of knowing the test results are fully reliable and accurate.
Step 5: Recommendations and Removal
In the event that the mold analysis and report recommend the removal of mold growth (mold remediation), we will recommend a certified mold remediation specialist to carry out its removal. As mold removal can be hazardous, strict guidelines are followed in accordance with the Canadian Construction Association’s Mold Guidelines for the Canadian Construction Industry.
The mold is then safely removed using negative air pressure machines and HEPA filters by fully-certified removal experts in protective gear.
Step 6: Final Air Sampling
Following the mold removal, one of our certified mold inspectors will revisit your home to confirm that the mold infestation has been completely removed. This includes final air sampling of your environment and visually inspecting all previously moldy surfaces and areas before giving your home or business a clean bill of health, or recommending additional remediation.
