Alpha Mold Inspectors offers post remediation verification (PRV) inspections and testing. Often referred to as “clearance testing”, this evaluation is performed by a mold or indoor air quality (IAQ) specialist to help determine if the remediation scope-of-work (remediation protocol) was followed and if the recently cleaned environment has returned to a healthy livable space.

Alpha Mold Inspectors

We follow the ANSI/IICRC-approved S520 Professional Guide for Mold Remediation which defines a successful remediation as reaching a Condition 1 status (normal fungal ecology). Our PRV evaluations typically follow these guidelines in determining if the remediation project is complete:

Step 1

Perform a visual inspection for remaining mold and moisture issues.

Step 2

Moisture readings are collected in various locations within the remediated areas to ensure all remaining building materials have been dried to an acceptable level.

Step 3

A thermal imagining scan of the walls, ceilings and floors is performed to check for hidden moisture issues.

Step 4

A smell test is also used to help ensure the environment is clean and free of malodors.

Step 5

If these prior steps are acceptable, we will collect air mold samples and possibly surface mold samples to ensure the environment is clean at the microscopic level.

Step 6

The samples are sent to an AIHA-approved laboratory for analysis. Typically, results are available the next day. Same day rush sample turn arounds are available for additional fees. We look for qualitatively and quantitatively similar indoor air samples as the outdoor air. Surface samples should show minimal spore levels with no toxic mold or pathogenic molds being present.

Step 7

A final report is issued outlining our findings and any recommendations. If all criteria are met, reconstruction may begin.

Mold Inspection

A mold inspection or mold assessment is the first and most important tool in detecting hidden mold issues or conditions, such as previous or current moisture issues, that could be leading to hidden mold growth. Many times, there are water intrusion issues occurring that are hidden from view & can only be detected with special equipment. Alpha Mold Inspectors can provide a complete visual inspection of the premises to determine if there are conditions that could be leading to microbial growth. We check all walls for hidden moisture, take temperature & humidity readings throughout the property, pay close attention to the rooms with plumbing such as; bathrooms, kitchens & laundry rooms, along with checking the HVAC system (air handler & ductwork) for visible mold growth. This will help us determine the issue(s) occurring in order to determine the next steps for resolving the problem.

    Alex was great for our mold inspection. I had many requirements before choosing an inspector and am so glad that fit the bill perfectly. He was very thorough and sincerely understood my concerns. He reassured me several times and was patient to explain tests and results. Thank you Alex, if we ever purchase again we will use Alpha Mold Inspectors.

    This was a great and incredible service. Alex was very thorough and very detail oriented. He spent a lot of time going through different parts of the house looking for any problems. He also took his time explaining everything and describing it to us so it was clear. He had all new equipment and everything went very smoothly. I strongly recommend him.

    I had a flood in my home and I called Alpha Mold Inspectors. I was really pleased with the outcome. The inspector (Alex) was very professional and very knowledgeable. He answered all my questions and referred me to a reputable company that remediated the mold. I am currently awaiting reconstruction, but felt like I was in good hands every step of the way!

  • James

    Alex is a lifesaver for me, out of many mold inspectors I went through, he was the only 1 who explained what the problem was and how to fix it. He stayed in contact till the problem was solved so I can finally get peace of mind. I'm truly grateful for this guy. I'll just leave it at that.

  • Greg

    I HIGHLY recommend Alpha Mold Inspectors! Professional, experienced, courteous and knowledgeable. This is a very specialized service and his expertise could save you thousands of dollars. Alex came to my home, conducted an inspection and gave me "peace of mind". He was detailed and made several suggestions to correct the problem. It is worth the investment to call Alex at Alpha Mold Inspectors if you suspect a problem.
