Atlanta Mold Inspection Services
SafeAir’s visual inspection procedures are completed with each mold inspection to identify visible mold and unusual moisture conditions, that are visible to the human eye, on the surface of indoor building materials for indoor location(s) that are readily available to be inspected by visual observation. If an environmental sample indicates a source of hidden mold growth, we may need to schedule an appointment for additional inspection and testing to identify sources of indoor mold growth that are not readily apparent the the human eye during the initial site visit.
SafeAir does not move furniture, rugs, appliances, surface coverings such as baseboards, sheetrock, etc., or look in cabinets / drawers during the visual inspection process on the initial visit unless it is specified by the client. If an environmental sample indicates a source of indoor mold growth, we may need to schedule additional inspection and testing services at an additional fee.
SafeAir’s visual inspection process and opinion, regarding mold contaminants, is limited to indoor location(s) where environmental samples were collected only. No opinion is given by SafeAir regarding mold or unusual moisture conditions for locations where environmental samples were not collected, or surfaces and locations that are hidden from view, during the visual inspection unless specified by the client. No opinion is given by SafeAir regarding mold and unusual moisture conditions where environmental samples were not collected.
A visual inspection is the most important initial step in discovering a mold contamination. SafeAir mold inspectors look for damp or wet conditions, low circulation and humidity in your basement, attic or laundry room and, if you are confronting a real problem, we can recommend the next steps you should make.
How to Fix the Real Problems
The key to mold control is moisture control
A leaky roof, wet clothes, pipe leaks, basement flooding, proximity to a lake or a river, high indoor humidity, construction defects and many other factors, sometimes out of our reach, lead to mold. More important than actually seeing the mold in your house is the extent, type, species, and genus of fungi you are dealing with.
For example, allergenic mold affects only some people, mold types containing mycotoxins are the most serious type that can affect anyone, which can even lead to cancer. Our company was especially created to provide mold information, inspection, solutions and help.
We require pre-inspection information to determine the level of risk for toxic mold, when we ask you questions about the building, its materials and main characteristic, the occupants and the surroundings.
Also, you can tell our specialists what your concerns are once your questions are addressed and schedule and appointment to visit the building.
