Mold inspection Brooklyn offers mold testing services throughout all of Brooklyn. Many clients are often unsure as to whether or not in fact they need a mold inspection, what type of mold inspection they need, and how the results will or will not help them. We’ve decided to try and address some of these very common questions and concerns right here at mold inspection Brooklyn.
Mold Inspection Services and Procedures
The purpose of performing mold testing is to determine whether or not a mold problem exists. When I say mold problem I am referring to a situation that warrants corrective action, meaning, eliminating conditions conducive to mold growth, professional mold removal and scrubbing the air of toxic and or elevated undesirable mold spores.
Most all clients that reach out to us are on a tight budget and for this reason we always recommend starting with limited preliminary testing assuming that time is not necessarily of the essence. Initial preliminary testing, when our main concern is to make sure the environment is safe to live in, is recommended to be performed through air samples.
Air samples will tell us plain as day whether or not the ambient air has been contaminated from either an event or some discovered mold within the premises. Once it is determined whether or not the air is free of unusual levels of mold spores or toxic mold spores, then we can help you our client, determine what is necessary to remove any visible mold without contaminating the existing ambient air.
It is always recommended to perform air sampling in accordance with industry standards. Industry standards clearly dictate that for accurate results, one air sample is representative of approximately an 8 foot radius. That being said, a walk-in closet, an average size bathroom or an extremely small room can be reasonably checked by means of one air sample. Average size rooms will require at least two samples on average. One outdoor air sample, referred to as a control sample, is always required by the laboratory and by protocol to be taken and submitted with the indoor air samples to the laboratory for proper analysis of the indoor air versus the outdoor air on the day the mold inspection was performed. It is highly recommended that protocol be followed in order to obtain a realistic sense of security based upon the results returned by the laboratory. So getting back to preliminary testing, essentially in most cases you will need to perform in the range of at least three samples to get a reasonable understanding of the ambient air in most questionably small to average size rooms and for this reason of course we would want to focus on a main room of concern. A room of concern will often be the room where an event took place such as a flood or leaks, a room where an individual spends the most amount of their time, perhaps a room where a young infant or toddler or child for that matter resides. So as you can see, Brooklyn mold inspection is not only here to help you determine the current conditions with regard to your air-quality in relation to mold, but here to help you and make sure you obtain a good understanding along with your inspection results.
