Pre-Testing is recommended when a mold problem has been identified but prior to initiating a mold remediation. This service is useful to measure and record the types and quantity of mold spore activity prior to any remedial activities. Such information helps document a professional response and sets a baseline of mold spore activity before the remediation contractor has begun.
Post Remediation Verification or Clearance Testing is a critical step and is used to confirm and document that the remediation was successful. Such a service generally includes a visual inspection of the area targeted for remediation along with additional sampling. It is important to confirm that the remediation was done properly. In particular if a real estate transaction is involved, the buyer and seller will want documentation that the mold problem has been resolved.
