Tape Lift Sample Analysis
Tape lift sampling is my personal favorite way to check for mold in a home. It consists of taking a piece of tape, sticking it to a surface that you suspect has mold growth, then examining it under a microscope on a slide with the proper dye.
1. I take them:
You MUST know in advance where you would like the samples to be taken. Otherwise, you need an inspection. Covers collection and analysis of samples only.

Too far away? Don't want anyone in your house? Don't have time to schedule an inspection? No problem. Take samples yourself and send them to me to analyze. Check out the Resources tab for instructions on how samples should be taken and for the required order form.
Reports are furnished within 48 hours of receiving the samples in the lab.
COST: Base fee of $15 plus $10 per sample.
CLO2 Vapor Treatment
This is a highly effective and safe treatment that will completely sanitize any surface, reaching places that other treatments may not, including the inside of your HVAC ductwork. In addition to killing all biological contaminants (this includes mold, viruses, and bacteria!), this treatment can completely eliminate unwanted odors such as smoke and animal smells. My clients absolutely love this service and always are so pleased with how fresh and clean the air feels after this treatment. Please note that I prefer to do this service after a full inspection has uncovered and fixed any underlying conditions that are conducive to mold growth. If underlying conditions exist, the treatment will be effective, but issues can quickly arise again. Covers materials, application, and cleanup.
This treatment generally takes approximately 6 hours to complete. No people, animals, or plants can be inside the home while the treatment is happening. Since the treatment is a vapor, it leaves behind no residue so there is no cleanup involved except airing out the house. Please note that there will be a lingering chlorine smell after the treatment that will dissipate within hours of additional airing out of the home.
COST: $200 per 500 square feet.
Air Sample Testing
Air sample testing is the industry standard when it comes to detecting mold in a home. A vacuum device pulls a precise amount of air through a hose which is connected to an air sample cassette. This cassette has a sealed trap that collects any particulate and contaminants in the air. The samples are sent to a certified lab to be analyzed. There is a minimum of two samples required because there needs to be a sample taken outside the home as a baseline measurement to compare to inside measurements.
Reports are furnished as soon as the lab sends them back, usually within a few days.
COST: Air Samples are $75 each, with a 2 quantity minimum.
These services can be ordered as stand alone services a-la-carte, or combined with other services that don't already include them.
Can't wait? Schedule an emergency appointment outside of normal business hours, whether that be morning, night, or weekends.
We use an infrared camera to check behind walls, ceilings, and floors to detect temperature differences that can indicate air or water leaks. This service can end up uncovering hard to find issues before much more damage is done.
Air Quality Measurements
We use state of the art meters that measure the amount of debris and contaminants in the air, and the level of different gasses including Formaldehyde, Carbon Dioxide, and Volatile Organic Chemicals that can be released by mold. We also check the relative humidity of your home which can be a major condition conducive to mold growth.
