CERTIFIED MOLD TESTING NEWTON, MA

A Certified Mold Inspector (CMI) is a specialist who has been professionally trained to assess both the presence of microbial contamination and the source of any underlying moisture intrusion. The CMI certification recognizes the Certified Mold Inspector as having exhibited a proficiency of knowledge required to perform a professional microbial assessment, identify underlying moisture problems, properly perform air and surface samples and interpret the results.

The two most effective detectors for mold testing, are your eyes and your nose. Mold can appear in different colors. When looking for mold, you might want to first look at each individual water source at your location. Did you find mold damage? Did you find water damage? Aircare-Services is your one-stop-shop for all your environmental needs.  We offer various methods of mold testing.

Air samples are taken with spore traps and an air pump. These are used to take samples of air from general areas or cavities behind walls. The air samples collected inside a residence or business will be compared to an outside sample that serves as a baseline. Having a control makes our report legally binding and normal levels of mold exist in every indoor environment. Seeing what is normal for your area allows us to prove that there are indeed issues that need to be dealt with. Surface swabs or tape lifts are used when visible mold growth is present. Some species of mold are not easily airborne including the dreaded black toxic mold. That is why collecting these swabs is highly recommended as well.

Breathing in elevated levels of mold on a regular basis from living or working in a building with toxic mold growth is nothing any individual should have to experience. While it may seem like a silly topic, more and more evidence of the negative health effects of mold are coming out every day. Symptoms are often similar to allergies not only in how it makes people feel but also because not all people are impacted equally. So do not write off someone else’s complaints simply because you do not notice the same things.

5 PHASES OF MOLD REMEDIATION:

  1. Develop the scope of work and identify critical contaminant barriers;
  2. Conduct mold and environmental damage repairs and remediation;
  3. Decontaminate all affected content and HVAC systems;
  4. Dehumidify and the completely eliminate odors from remaining materials;
  5. Complete the repairs and reconstruction.

It’s inevitable. When you have a water damage problem in your home or business the threat of mold damage is right behind it. Taking immediate action on water damage clean up and removal is critical. If a room or basement is not dried out, it’s only a matter of time before mold spores start to multiply.

Mold has the potential of becoming a severe unseen problem inside a home or business. When there’s excessive humidity or moisture for an extended period of time the conditions are ripe for spores to grow and cause critical health issues.

The problem can originate from sudden water events like a flood from a burst pipe or large spill that is ignored, or from a chronic condition, such as a leaking roof or plumbing. It can also be triggered by common sources like high humidity or moist air condensing on cool surfaces.

When you suspect you have mold damage Newton, it’s always best to have mold remediation experts evaluate and remove the problem. The certified professionals at AirCare Environmental can help get of the problem.

Mold can grow almost anywhere if conditions are right. If you see growth on painted wall surfaces, property owners should be concerned about carpeting and rugs as well. If a floor remains wet for a prolonged period, it’s almost guaranteed that the mold growth on the underside of the material and will be worse than on the front.

At that point, containing the source of the problem and removing moldy materials, followed by cleaning of salvageable flooding materials is the most economical and smart options.

The mold remediation experts at AirCare have the training and experience to: identify moisture sources, evaluate mold growth (visible or suspected), to contain mold damage to the smallest area possible, to physically remove contamination, to dry materials to ensure that mold will not return, and to perform or recommend procedures for returning property to a like new condition.

When water damage occurs in your house you are racing against the clock. You must respond to the situation with 24-48 hours to help avoid mold spores infesting the building and to avoid expensive mold remediation.

Our Mold Damage Prevention Process: Remove, Restore and Replace

  • Use dehumidifiers if the outside temperature is above 60 degrees
  • If damage occurs during “heating season” keep temperature/thermostat no higher than 68 degrees. Turning heat higher will increase the risk of mold growth.
  • If damage occurs during the warmer months, use an air conditioner if available.
  • Use fans to circulate the air which assists drying
  • Remove as much water as possible by mopping and blotting
  • Wipe furniture dry
  • Lift draperies off carpet, loop through a coat hanger, and place the hanger on the drapery rod
  • Prop up wet furniture cushions for even drying and place small wood blocks or aluminum foil under furniture legs
  • Remove wet area rugs or other floor coverings
  • Open furniture drawers, closet doors, and luggage to enhance drying-
  • Move photos, paintings and art objects to a safe, dry location
