Mold Inspection/Assessment & Quote
Mold requires a moisture source in order to start growing, this process can take as quickly as 24-48 hours. Our technicians are certified and specifically trained to look for a moisture ingress causing a mold issue. The tech will document the inspection - take photos, measurements, video or audio recordings of meetings to ensure nothing is missed any details you may have and answer any questions to provide suggestions. If an issue is apparent, we can provide you with a quote free of charge based off of the inspection and the techs recommendations suited best for your specific situation. Our quotes include detailed scopes of work, procedures, safety recommendations, company information, all materials included to get you from start-finish and the option to have a rebuild service added. Bringing your home back to its original state like nothing ever happened!
Calgary Mold Removal Inc. does have an inspection fee. Why is it not FREE you ask? We would love to tell you! If a company is offering free services in the Mold & Asbestos Industry, it is not free! That company will need to regain their costs somewhere. Costs can be hidden in other services but in reality they are giving you advice that may provide them a larger advantage over the competition in the beginning of the process. In the end, you can almost bet that they will overcharge you. Where there is stress of Bio-Hazards, dont be fooled. Calgary Mold Removal Inc. has nothing to hide when it comes to pricing, we have All-In-Quotes, no hidden fees or expenses added on and have contracts in place to ensure you never have to worry about price increases.
Mold Inspections also include;
Moisture Meter: for moisture measurement on surfaces and Humidity Testing. If the moisture/humidity level is high, the possibility of mold increase.
Boroscope: this device has a high-resolution lens which provides us a visual image of mold or water damage in places that are not reachable.
Reports – Legal – Documentation:
Sometimes when dealing with Mold or Asbestos a project needs to be documented for Real Estate purposes, Legal Issues, Third Party Audits, Insurance and/or major disputes. Calgary Mold Removal Inc. will provide you with quality trained staff that will provide a minimum of Accredited Lab Reports, a Principle Investigator and a Review with a staff member that holds a minimum of a BCS of Medical Biochemistry. If you require documentation or a report, give our office a call and we will put you in contact with an Operations Manager to explain the process and find what best fits your needs.
Mold Tape Test or Mold Swab Test:
Tape sampling is the most common technique used to test surfaces for mold during an inspection. It is performed on a direct potential, visual mold sample available on-site. This provides valuable information when determining the extent of your situation, making your quote designed specifically for you and your issue. It informs us of the species of mold, the relative degree of contamination and the potential for airborne spore production. If no visual mold is present then this is not an option. If a company claims to be able to tell you the species of mold present by just looking at it without the proper testing, they are not following the policy of procedures as a viable company should.
All samples are tested by a 3rd party accredited lab located here in Calgary. The results are released to your email as well as a copy to the mold technician. A Calgary Mold Removal Inc. Tech will give you a follow up call to interpret the report, if any mold is detected we explain what your next options are, provide recommendations and provide a free quote for the removal.
Air Quality Testing:
There are many reasons it makes sense to test your home’s air for pollutants that can affect your health and the wellbeing of your family. We recommend performing an annual air test regardless of symptoms or health issues that you may experience to ensure every breath you take is free of mold!
An Air Quality Testing of your home can give you the results of 32 potential mold species. For each mold sample, it takes between 5-20 minutes to test, including set up time and actual sample taking. This is the best way to determine the extent of the mold problem without destructive mold inspections. Indoor Air Quality should match the outside air quality and is measured by mold spore count. All of our testing is done in alliance with the IICRC guidelines, AHS standards and by a 3rd party accredited lab! Please call us at 403-680-2023 if you have any questions regarding our services or if you would like to book an appointment.
Asbestos Testing is done by our certified technicians which is conducted by gathering several small samples of the material for processing at a third-party laboratory.
