Mold Testing and Remediation

We do not merely test but we understand the cause of the problem

mold testing and mold remediation

What do our mold inspections include?

Mold can be a persistent and hazardous problem in homes and buildings, posing risks to both the property itself and the health of its occupants. To effectively address mold issues, it is essential to conduct thorough mold testing and implement comprehensive mold remediation measures. This ensures a healthy indoor environment and prevents further mold growth.


The Importance of Mold Testing

Mold testing plays a vital role in identifying the presence and severity of mold contamination in an indoor environment. While some signs of mold growth may be visible, such as discoloration or a musty odor, testing provides accurate insights into the extent of the problem and assists in developing appropriate remediation strategies.

Traditional at home mold testing methods typically involve a single mold sample collected from inside the property and another from outside for comparison purposes. However, this approach often falls short in providing a comprehensive understanding of the mold issue. It merely confirms the presence of mold without explaining why it is present or offering recommendations for rectification.

At Indoor Science, our mold inspections go above and beyond simple mold testing. Our goal is to conduct a thorough investigation to locate any indoor mold growth and understand the underlying causes. This comprehensive approach provides a more holistic understanding of the mold problem and enables us to develop effective remediation strategies.


The Process of Mold Inspection

During a mold inspection, our certified professionals conduct a visual examination of the property. This visual inspection is a crucial part of understanding the mold issue, as it helps identify areas of visible mold growth, water damage, or signs of excess moisture. It allows us to pinpoint the root causes of mold growth and develop targeted remediation plans.

In addition to the visual inspection, we utilize sophisticated tools and equipment to assess the property further. These include infrared cameras to identify potential concealed moisture sources within walls and capacitance and resistance-based moisture meters to measure moisture levels in questionable areas. These advanced techniques help us locate hidden sources of moisture, which are often responsible for mold growth.

Based on our findings during the inspection, we determine the optimal locations for sample collection, if necessary. Surface samples, such as tape-lift, swab, or bulk tests, may be collected to confirm the presence and identify the type of mold growth. Air samples may be collected under normal or disturbed air conditions to assess the airborne mold spore concentration. In certain cases, we may recommend “wall check” sampling, which involves collecting air from behind drywall to detect hidden mold growth.

To ensure accurate and reliable results, we use primary calibration equipment for air sampling. This allows us to minimize the margin of error often associated with less precise testing methods. Unlike many mold testers who rely on simple rotameters without calibration, our commitment to accuracy ensures that our clients receive credible and dependable results.


Interpreting Mold Test Results

Understanding mold test results can be challenging, especially for individuals without a background in microbiology or industrial hygiene. At Indoor Science, we provide comprehensive support in interpreting the mold test results. Our certified professionals explain the findings in simple terms, ensuring that our clients understand the implications and significance of the test results.

Terms like Stachybotrys, Penicillium, Aspergillus, and Cladosporium may seem unfamiliar and overwhelming to many. However, these terms provide valuable information about the condition of the property and the potential health risks associated with specific types of mold. Our experts break down the test results, guiding clients through the findings to help them make informed decisions regarding remediation measures.


IAC2 Cetified Mold Assessor Supervision

At Indoor Sciences by Saniservice, our mold inspections are supervised by IAC2 Certified Mold Assessor. An IAC2 (International Association of Indoor Air Consultants) is a highly qualified professional with expertise in assessing and managing hazards in the indoor environment, including mold. Having an IAC2 on staff to review all technical work ensures the highest level of competence and professionalism in our mold inspection services. This distinction sets us apart from other companies that claim to be “IAC2 Consultant” without the expertise or supervision of a IAC2.


There are only two IAC2 Certified Consultants in Dubai and Saniservice holds the distinction of having them both on their team.

Recommendations Based on Your Best Interests

Our commitment to providing superior service extends beyond conducting mold inspections and interpreting results. At Indoor Science, we prioritize your best interests by offering recommendations tailored to your specific situation. We take into account the severity of the mold issue, your budgetary considerations, and the long-term goals for the property.

Our recommendations encompass not only mold remediation measures but also preventive strategies to minimize the risk of future mold growth. We provide guidance on addressing underlying moisture sources, improving ventilation, and implementing maintenance practices that promote a healthy indoor environment. Our goal is to empower our clients with the knowledge and tools necessary to maintain a mold-free and healthy living or working space.

In conclusion, mold testing and remediation are essential components of maintaining a healthy indoor environment. Through comprehensive mold inspections, the identification of mold sources, and the interpretation of test results, Indoor Science ensures accurate assessments and effective remediation strategies
