Mold is a product of natural environmental processes and, in small amounts, poses no threat. However, it can become a very real and very dangerous problem at high levels. In fact, for certain individuals who have a low tolerance to mold, even small concentrations can be extremely harmful.

Maintaining a Healthy Environment

It is important to remember that a home or office interior is a controlled environment. Our homes and office buildings are built to provide protection from the elements. From insulation to energy-efficient doors and windows, we create an ideal environment for temperature control. However, we also ‘lock-in’ our oxygen source. By recirculating the same air in a somewhat sealed space, we greatly reduce the quality of the air we breathe. Everything that is present in our air remains in our air.

When mold is present and left untreated, contaminated air is recirculated throughout the entire home. This exacerbates existing respiratory issues and can introduce many other health problems such as watery eyes, infections, migraines, dizziness, and many other serious health risks.

Building Performance Solutions offers the professionally administered mold inspections and testing services necessary to locate and gauge the concentration of mold in your home. By pinpointing the location, our professionals can provide an accurate assessment of the problem and detailed protocols for remediation. BPS finds the mold, determines the risk and provides instructions on how to remove it.

When do you need a Certified Mold Inspector?

Because mold infestation can result in extremely expensive cleanup and repairs, the rule of thumb is to be safe rather than sorry.

ALWAYS hire a Certified Mold Inspector in the following situations:

 
Purchasing A Home Or Business Property

Remember: a basic home inspection is not designed to detect hidden mold or mildew. Make sure you’re not purchasing a financial liability by having the property assessed by a Certified Mold Inspector.

Evidence of Mold

Remember: a basic home inspection is not designed to detect hidden mold or mildew. Make sure you’re not purchasing a financial liability by having the property assessed by a Certified Mold Inspector.

Any Type of Water or Water-Related Damage

When you notice signs of a roof leak, damaged rain gutters, water damage around plumbing fixtures or pipes, mold can often be an additional problem due to the presence of standing water. Make sure that’s not the case with your property.

Resident Complaints of Illness Due to the Building Environment

A comprehensive inspection by a certified mold inspector can find the problem and determine the best course of action for remediation while possibly reducing your liability exposure.

Verify the Necessity of Suggested Mold Repairs

Eliminate the risk of conflict of interest by having an inspection by a Certified Mold Inspector.

Prevent Symptoms of Mold Exposure

Black mold represents a serious health hazard that can, in some cases, be life-threatening. By conducting regularly scheduled mold inspections you take a proactive approach to preventing mold issues from spreading and becoming a health risk to you, your family and/or your customers.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

Our certified mold inspection specialists can conduct comprehensive air testing which locates and identifies specific types of mold in your indoor air environment, enabling them to suggest an effective mold remediation process in order to solve the problem.

Reduce the Risk of Structural Damage

Mold growth can compromise the structural integrity of your property, affecting insulation, drywall, and electrical wiring and so much more while damaging wood framing. The mold inspection may result in suggested remediation processes, which would not only help to preserve the integrity of your structure but also address other serious issues such as Sick Building Syndrome.

Superior Accuracy through Multifaceted Testing

Building Performance Solutions uses several testing methods in order to provide the industry’s most comprehensive IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) /Mold Profile of your indoor environment. We put our extensive professional training and field experience to work to determine which testing procedures to employ for each specific environment.

Types of Mold Testing & Sampling

In some cases, it is necessary to use multiple types of testing, as each test produces specific data. These methods include:

  1. Air-O-Cell Sampling – Particulate is collected from your indoor and outdoor air environment in order to provide an accurate comparison count. This testing method does not evaluate spore viability.
  2. Impaction Sampling – Using gravity or pressure, a petri dish is plated with airborne particulate and incubated for laboratory identification. This method represents a small sample of the entire indoor environment.
  3. EnviroSWAB Sampling – ‘Dust’ that includes viable mold spores is collected, plated to a petri dish and tested in the lab to identify and count live colonies forming units (CFU). In this method, only viable mold that has settled out in the collection location is recognized.
  4. EnviroTAPE Sampling – This method is used where visible mold is present. A tape is applied directly to the mold and lifted. The lab identifies and counts the number of dead or live CFU. This method does not recognize the viability of mold growth: only the presence of mold.
  5. Bulk Sampling – In some cases, it is necessary to conduct laboratory testing on specific construction materials in order to identify and count the number of dead and/or live CFU. This method does not recognize the viability of mold growth: only the presence of mold.
