Mold, Water and Flood Damage Assessments
Unusual mold or bacterial growth may develop from the long-term presence of elevated moisture, humidity, condensation or water damage. In many cases, this water can be removed, and contents can be dried, before mold grows significantly. In the case of sudden water damage, such as a burst pipe or flooding from groundwater or sewage, more aggressive steps to remove water, dry, clean and disinfect impacted surfaces should occur to reduce risk for infection and disease. The experts at ESMCorp are experienced and professionally qualified to help offices, healthcare facilities, schools and homeowners determine the severity and steps to resolve water damage and mold contamination problems.
ESMCorp performs mold testing in buildings to determine if airborne and surface molds are at typical levels predominated by common mold types at typical levels, or alternatively, if abnormal mold levels or types exist. We utilize a variety of sampling and analytical methods based upon the specific situation. We utilize AIHA Accredited Environmental Microbiology Laboratories to analyze all mold, bacteria, or other microbiological samples. Based upon our observations and measurements at the site, and the laboratory results received, ESMCorp provides detailed reports of findings and recommendations. Unlike many “mold testing companies” who simply collect samples and forward lab results to the client to figure things out for themselves, we at ESMCorp take the time to think about the findings from the site assessment and laboratory results to develop a written narrative report outlining our professional opinions along with any recommendations for our clients. Since ESMCorp does not perform mold remediation, we do not have any interest in minimizing or exaggerating our findings.
We assist our clients through:
- Microbial Air and Bulk Testing
- Expert Mold Assessment Reports and Mold Remediation Protocols
- Oversight of Mold Remediation Contractors
- Air and Surface Sampling Following Fire or Flood Cleanup
ESMC designs detailed mold remediation specifications so that clients can get fair and competitive pricing from mold remediation contractors.
