Hidden mold is commonly found behind freshly painted sheetrock. We are licensed mold assessors that have years of experience finding hidden mold.
Because we use the lated technology such as infra red cameras, and moisture meters we find hidden mold where other inspectors walk right by it.
We also preform air testing and tape lifts and work with independent 3rd party certified labs to help determine if the air quality in your home is unsafe to breath due to mold spores.
Hidden mold is commonly found in houses that are being flipped especially by banks and other institutions who hire sub par contractors to do a quick cover up job on foreclosed homes.
Common areas to find mold is in basements, crawlspaces, and attics. Hidden moisture is commonly found in bathrooms under tiles in showers and tubs.
If you suspect you may have mold due to musty odors give us a call. We will set up a date to come over, do an inspection, if necessary collect some air samples and design a scope of work that you can use when negotiating with mold contractors. In NY it is now law that ALL mold assessors and contractors must have a NYS license. Make sure you ask to see it!! Mold contractors are not allowed to do assessments on the jobs they plan to remediate. This must be done by an independent 3rd party assessor.
