Information provided will allow the client to make informed decisions on mold mitigation lengths and corrective actions to reduce future mold growth.

Air Quality Sampling

Air quality sampling is a controlled gathering of air from within and outside the home to determine if the mold types and levels are similar. Older homes and homes that have the HVAC air handler located in a crawl space will benefit from this type of sampling.
