The Mold Inspection Process in Long Island
If you are in Massapequa, our technician will follow a comprehensive five-point inspection procedure. We take samples of the air to see whether or not there are traces of mold present. Surface swabs are also taken for the same reason. The technician will identify areas where water might
potentially have seeped in and take non-invasive measurements of the moisture level. All specimens of mold sources are photographed to be affixed to the official Chain of Custody attachment. This is done to ensure that you have proof of the results that will stand as legal
evidence in court if necessary. Particles counters are used inside the home and outside to determine whether the level of negative particles inside is elevated or not. Our infrared imagers allow our technician to check for mold that could be growing behind your walls, without causing any damage to the walls. Our technicians use moisture readers to see whether or not any of the materials in your home have sustained moisture damage.

We will let you know whether or not your home has a mold problem, how bad the problem is, how to go about removing the mold and how to prevent a recurrence of the problem. You will receive copies of all the pictures taken and scanned images as well. This report will leave you in no doubt where you stand and give you the best options for recovery.
How to Get Rid of Mold
Mold can be difficult to get rid of. Even if you have removed all traces of it, and applied a chemical treatment, you could have spores in the air or spores that have spread elsewhere due to the moisture content.

They can cause serious respiratory tract infections and even death in small children and the frail. It is not something you want to mess with.
