I am certified by the International Association of Certified Indoor Air Quality Consultants (IAC2) with advanced mold  inspection training  and certification by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors.
I submit all mold specimens and other diagnostic testing to a certified laboratory for testing.

A residential mold investigation consists of a non-invasive, visual examination of the readily accessible, visible, and  installed systems and components of the building, as outlined in the IAC2 Mold Inspection Standards of Practice. (www.iac2.org/sop.php)
I will utilize thermal imaging technology to inhance my visual inspection, take moisture, temperature and humidity measurements;
• A minium of three air samples for mold will be collected for testing.
• Surface sampling at areas of concern or visible suspected mold growth will     be collected. 

I will generate a report from my mold inspection that will include comments on the following:
• moisture intrusion;
• water damage;
• musty odors;
• apparent mold growth;
• conditions conducive to mold growth;
• the results of a laboratory analysis of all mold samplings taken at the building; and
• any system or components listed in the Standards of Practice that were not visually examined, and the reasons they were not inspected.

I do provide post remediation validation testing to ensure the mold remediation has been successful.
This is known as third party post mold remediation verification, or clearance testing.
The purpose of this testing is to provide an inspection of the work done by the remediation company, and re-testing of areas in the building that have undergone remediations work.
I do not provide mold remediation. Thereby eliminating any conflict of interest or ethical concerns  I perform inspections and testing only. ​

  • Mold Testing:

Environmental Testing; MOLD, RADON, ALLERGENS, WATER

Air Samples can detect non-visible mold growth. As mold grows, microscopic spores are released into the air.
Breathing this spore contaminated air can cause health issues. ​

There are three types of mold spores:

Allergenic: Mold spores that cause an allergic reaction in those that breathe in it, such as wheezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, rashes, and fatigue.

Pathogenic: Mold spores that cause a supression of the immune system leading to chronic pain, respiratory problems, and sinus infections.

Toxic: Mold spores that are very hazardous and may lead to more serious health concerns. 
​​

Laboratory testing of air samples can identify and quantify the mold spore types present

  • Radon Testing - Exposure to Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US. 41.6% of homes tested in Teton County have significantly elevated Radon levels. Testing is recommended every 2 years by Teton County Public Health
  • Allergen Testing - If you or a family member suffers from allergies, an allergen screening will determine what types of allergens in your home might be causing you or your family to get sick.
  • Drinking Water Testing - I can test your drinking water to ensure it is safe from high Radon levels, Arsenic, Metals, and sewage contamination.
