When you schedule a mold inspection with Island Inspections, LLC you can have peace of mind that a through mold assessment has been completed. Our professional team use mold inspection tools such as infrared cameras and moisture meters to efficiently detect areas where mold could grow. These tools have become the scientific standard for monitoring, detecting, and controlling moisture. In order for mold to grow and spread it needs moisture.
After these hot spots are identified, we then collect either air or surface samples or a combination of the two and send them off to a third-party lab for analysis. Once our mold inspection company receives the results from the samples, we pair that with the building diagnostics we gathered during our site inspection and issue an indoor air quality report with a mold remediation protocol if mold remediation is in fact needed.
