A thorough mold inspection is the starting point for any suspected mold-related issue. Without mold testing, there’s no way to accurately determine how bad your mold problem is – or if one exists at all. Mastertech mold inspectors in South Jersey are trained to conduct thorough investigations to determine if you have mold, how bad it is, how to properly get rid of it and how to prevent it from returning. If you suspect you have mold in your home, basement, attic or commercial building, or are concerned about black mold or toxic mold, call MasterTech today to schedule a certified mold inspection NJ.
We also offer indoor air quality assessments with mold testing and will come take air samples to determine if your indoor mold spore levels are higher than they should be. If you are concerned with your indoor air quality, air testing will provide the necessary answers to your mold-related questions.
A thorough visual inspection is the starting point for every residential or commercial mold assessment. Your mold inspector will be looking for conditions that promote mold growth.
Documenting our findings through digital imaging is the easiest way for your mold inspector to relay his or her findings. We’ll take pictures of all the areas of concern so you see exactly what we saw during your mold inspection.
Thermal imaging cameras (or infrared cameras) allow us to detect temperature differences in (and often behind) building materials. Why is this important? Because damp or wet building materials are almost always cooler than dry materials – and it’s the temperature difference that the infrared camera detects. It’s an invaluable tool in the detection of moisture sources that cause mold growth.
Since mold needs moisture to develop and thrive, finding that source of moisture is very important. Moisture mapping basically allows us to locate building materials that are damp or wet enough to support mold growth. Testing for moisture also helps us determine if water leaks have been resolved or if they are actively leaking and can locate where water damage starts and stops.
Your mold inspector may need to take air samples to determine if your indoor mold spore levels are higher than they should be.
Is it just water staining, or is it mold? Surface testing with mold swabs or bio tape lifts will answer those questions. In many cases, surface testing isn’t necessary if mold growth is visibly obvious.
When mold is suspected behind a wall or above a ceiling, those areas should be tested. Today’s mold testing technologies and techniques allow mold inspectors to take air and surface samples from wall or ceiling voids without causing unnecessary damage to the property.
Within 48 hours after your home mold inspection, your inspector will compile all of his or her findings and generate an easy to understand mold inspection report.
If requested, your mold inspector will design a mold remediation plan specific to your property. Your scope of work will include cleanup suggestions as well as preventative measures that are necessary to keep mold from returning.
Also referred to as clearance testing. This is a mold inspection after the remediation is complete. Since we’re removing a bio hazard, It’s important to know that the job was done right – the first time. PRV Testing will determine if cleanup efforts were successful or if further cleanup is necessary.
