Almost all building owners/managers have dealt with moisture intrusion and microbial activity and the significant costs associated with the same. In all cases we have seen, the owner/manager has submitted to doing whatever the contractor says needs to be done without stopping to question the validity or the expense, often because of the legal implications these issues lend themselves to.

At AmeriPro, we do not conduct any repairs, we are consultants only. That means that we do not benefit from the cost of the remediation, large or small.

Mold screening or sampling can be conducted as a precautionary measure to minimize risk or where issues are noted by owners, building managers, condominium associations, etc. Determining the requirements for actual mold-related issues is never straight forward as each case must be individually reviewed, so that we can prepare an effective sampling and assessment plan. Where you know you have a mold problem, it is very important that we are informed of all the details of the problem.

When mold screening assessments or sampling is conducted as a precautionary measure by new homeowners, investors, commercial purchasers or owners to minimize the risk of microbial issues with the building they are buying, renting or owning, it is not as difficult.

Typically we recommend following the Indoor Air Quality Associations (IAQA) standards, which suggests one sampling test per thousand square feet plus exterior baseline testing. These samples are sent to a laboratory for analyzation and reporting on the contaminants found.

These are baseline mold inspection evaluations designed to minimize the risk of mold contamination in your new home or building. They are typically based on visual inspections of the building in question and may or may not include testing.

The inspection will outline any visible areas of moisture or moisture-related issues throughout your home or building. Testing is based on the date and time of inspection only. Testing for moisture content and percentage of relative humidity are included as part of this service.

If your funds are being drained by a handful of remediation companies, maybe it is time to change and work with an independent company that represents you and oversees the works being conducted. Call today for more information.
