INSPECTION VS. TESTING

Airborne Environmental provides two services;

1. Inspections
2. Testing.

Though it is not always necessary to do both, it is usually recommended for the following reasons:

1. In some cases, an air test might reveal a high indoor spore count even though there is no visible evidence of mold. In this can, the inspection alone would not detect a mold problem even though one exists.

2. Conversely, a visual inspection may turn up evidence of surface mold even though an air test might show spore counts well within a normal range. In this case, the air test alone would not reveal a mold problem even though one exists.

The combination of a visual inspection and an air test is optimal for assessing mold conditions since one typically points to the other.

VISUAL INSPECTION EXPLAINED…

An inspection is a visual inspection of the property, inside and out, for evidence of mold and signs of water intrusion. The Visual Inspection reveals obvious molds on surfaces and helps determine hidden mold problems that may go unnoticed to an un-trained eye. A visual inspection can also uncover existing and potential moisture problems in construction materials. Wet or damp wood, drywall, and even concrete may not be a mold problem now, but will be if ignored. Airborne Environmental Consultants uses specialized electronic equipment to detect moisture levels of construction materials such as stucco, wood siding, plaster, drywall, cabinets, shower stalls and floors.
