MOLD TESTING SERVICES
Branch Property Investigations performs mold testing in residential homes and commercial buildings. So what makes our company unique? We apply 20+ years experience as a mold remediator and water loss specialist to identify likely locations for mold growth. If desired, we can perform a detailed moisture investigation of the entire home as an added service to mold testing. It is important to not only find the mold problem but also understand why it is growing and to eliminate the moisture source so it won’t reoccur. We don’t perform remediation work so we don’t have any conflicts of interest.
Mold Sampling Method
During a Mold and Indoor Air quality assessment, we do a visual inspection along with gathering data and samples from the home to investigate and/or send to a lab. When we send these samples to the lab, a toxicologist studies them and sends us the results in full detail. We are often able to see specifically what species of mold spore is in the air as well as how many spores per cubic meter. With all of this data, we create a report with clear, easy-to-read recommendations on how to alleviate the problem(s) to make your home or building a safer one.
During assessment, we use modern and extremely accurate equipment to pinpoint problems in your breathing space. All of this is noninvasive to your home or building. Our equipment can include thermal imaging cameras, moisture meters for moisture mapping, professional hygrometers, air pumps at precise sampling rates for air samples, and swabs and tape lifts for surface sampling.

We have the necessary tools, including thermal imaging cameras, moisture meters, professional hygrometers and multiple ladders necessary to access any curious points in your home where moisture may be entering. Your report will include a detailed summary of our findings, including lab-analysis, photos depicting areas of concern, and clear, easy-to-read recommendations. Our investigation usually lasts 2-3 hours on-site; you can expect to receive your report with lab results, findings, and recommendations in about a week.
