Our Mold Inspection Reports include a summary of our significant observations, test results, and site-specific remediation protocols that fully describe the necessary mold removal work. We also perform Clearance Assessments after remediation work is performed to determine if the mold remediation work was properly performed.
If you suspect that your indoor environment is contributing to your adverse health symptoms, respiratory problems or asthma-like symptoms, or if your asthma and allergies become significantly worse when you spend time indoors, then call us at All green Air, LLC to schedule a mold inspection. You may have a hidden mold problem.
Tape containing a slide coated with a sticky medium are placed at the end of a specially designed pump, which draws air in and collects airborne fungal spores.
Results of air sample will indicate mold levels and species.
A minimum of two tests are necessary for a comparison of interior air versus exterior air to determine if air quality is safe.
Swab test involves a Q-Tip swab encased in a tube with liquid medium.
The swab is introduced to the visible mold on a surface.
The swab is then sent to the lab for analysis.
Swab sample results will indicate mold levels and species located in suspect area.
This test involves a piece of tape, which is introduced to visible mold on a surface then placed on a slide for analysis.
The tape lift result will indicate species of mold located in suspect area.
Bulk sampling is when an affected piece of building material is removed and sent to a lab for analysis (ie: carpeting, drywall, ceiling tile, etc.)
The bulk sample will indicate species of mold located on affected material.
NIOSH method is used for the analysis of asbestos in air by PCM. Results are reported as fibers per cubic centimeter and depend on the volume of air sampled. PCM analysis is not asbestos fiber specific. It will count all fibers meeting the criteria for fiber determination.
This method is used for the analysis of asbestos in air by TEM. Results are reported as structures per square millimeter and are specific for the determination of asbestos fibers present in the sample. This procedure is typically required for final re-occupancy criteria. Mandatory, Nonmandatory and Mandatory Sections to determine completion of response actions.
This method is used for the analysis of asbestos in bulk materials by Polarized-Light Microscopy.
This method is used for the analysis of asbestos in Non-Friable Organically Bound bulk materials by Polarized-Light Microscopy. This method combines the tracked gravimetric-reduction preparation of 198.4 with the PLM point-counting of 198.1.
This method is used for the analysis of asbestos in Non-Friable Organically Bound bulk samples by Transmission Electron Microscope.
Clarifications to NYS DOH ELAP methods 198.1, 198.4 and 198.6.
This method is used for the analysis for Identifying and Quantitating Asbestos in Sprayed-On Fireproofing Containing Vermiculite Bulk Samples.
Announcement (July 22, 2014) of the availability of two NYS DOH ELAP-approved methods for the detection and quantitation of asbestos content in spray-on fireproofing that contains vermiculite:
Laboratories that would like to perform analysis for the detection and quantitation of asbestos content in SOF-V must seek accreditation for Item 198.8.
