Mold Verification Services by East Coast Mold Remediation in Baltimore, Maryland
Are you a Baltimore, MD property owner who has received mold remediation services from East Coast Mold Remediation and you now require verification? Our team can help! As a full service mold remediation company, we will be with you from the initial consultation to the verification process, providing you with the support you need and deserve. If you have selected to have an inspection performed by an Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP), verification will be the final step that completes the remediation process. During verification, the IEP will confirm that all detected mold has been adequately remediated as recommended during the inspection. This verification process can help our customer confirm that the mold remediation process is complete.
What Happens During the Mold Verification Process?
Once our skilled team at East Coast Mold Remediation has completed the remediation process, we suggest scheduling a clearance report, or mold verification, with the IEP who did the initial inspection. This is confirmation that your mold remediation services were performed professionally, accurately, and according to protocol.
An IEP completes the mold remediation verification process through the following steps:
The IEP will reinspect all areas that were once of concern with a thorough visual inspection.
The IEP will then take additional lab samples of the remediated areas as needed or requested.
Once it is determined that there are no visual signs of mold growth, and the lab samples indicate mold is no longer present, the IEP can assure that the mold issue was appropriately handled as outlined in the original mold report.
Customers choose mold verification with an IEP to receive a third-party report of our remediation services. Though we are a team of knowledgeable and qualified mold professionals, this step gives customers a second opinion from an environmental professional who possesses a specified level of knowledge concerning fungal ecology.
Using an IEP vs Home Mold Testing
Instead of hiring an IEP you may have been tempted to pick up a home mold testing kit when you first suspected mold in your home or building. How would that home mold test have compared to IEP mold testing?
Home mold test kits are not relied on by professionals and are unable to identify the specific type of mold detected or where it originated from. Most home kits use “settle plate applications” where you lay a dish out in the open for 24-48 hours and allow any mold spores to settle on the dish. These tests may identify if mold is present, but often result in inaccurate results. To find out the type of mold and if it is toxic, the test must be sent off for further testing for an additional fee.
Choosing IEP mold testing and verification services instead is a worthy investment. An IEP utilizes specialized equipment to detect where the mold is coming from and pinpoint its exact location. They guarantee accurate results that save you time from possible false results from a home test kit and provide a written scope of work for the mold removal company to properly remove the mold while ensuring your home or building remains structurally sound. An IEP serves as your advocate from start to finish in the mold remediation process. They walk you through both the assessment remediation and post remediation verification of mold in your building or home.
Why Is Mold Verification So Important?
Think of an IEP as a competent mold investigator. Mold is not something to take lightly. Having several experts on your side to accurately determine the extent of damages done to your commercial or residential property can be helpful.
An IEP is an exceptionally efficient resource when there are high risk occupants present within your commercial or residential building, such as children or the elderly. Additionally, IEPs are a necessary component when mold has posed a public health issue. As a sound educator in regard to mold and its effects on human health, an IEP is one of the most critical aspects of the mold remediation process, and the deciding factor of mold verification.
