Mold Identification and Mitigation Design and Planning
Mold spores are constantly present inside and outside, most times carried by wind in search of perfect conditions for growth. For spores to develop into mold, it needs moisture, a food source and the proper temperature.
All structures are at risk for building related mold growth including homes, commercial and industrial facilities. The most common causes of mold is from leaky roofs, maintenance issues, plumbing problems, and of course, flooding. If any of these issues have occurred, it is important to have the home or building assessed for mold.
United Analytical Services will complete a thorough assessment of the home or building to determine the location(s) of mold growth and the source of the moisture. If mold is found, we will collect air, surface and bulk samples and analyze the samples to best determine the means for removal. Mold cannot be easily washed away, it requires a proper remediation plan that instructs removing the mold with the most effective processes and procedures for your home or office building.
United Analytical Services will oversee the remediation process ensuring the proper procedures are being followed. If you need assistance deciding which remediation company is best for your project, let us know. We know the best questions to ask and what to listen for in the answers.
Once the mold is removed and the conditions for mold growth have been corrected, United Analytical Services will complete a post-remediation inspection for quality control and re-occupancy. We will conclude which sampling inspection is best to determine any potential presence of mold. These samplings can include visual inspection, bulk sampling, surface sampling and/or air sampling.
Our staff of professionals led by Dr. Kevin E. Aikman, Ph.D., C.I.H., FAIHA, have worked with homeowners, schools, universities, hospitals, state facilities and various commercial and industrial properties assessing mold and developing remediation plans to ensure its proper eradication.
