Consulting

Paradise Environmental mold tests go beyond what many other testing companies provide.  Ours include laboratory analysis, thermal imaging, moisture indicators, borescope testing, cavity checks, visual inspections, photos and attic and crawl space inspections (if applicable).  We feel this is the only approach that gives customers relevant, reliable and actionable findings.

We offer several options to fit your needs:

  • Post Remedial Mold Testing/Clearances are typically requested by restoration companies, HOA's and insurance claims to verify that the areas have been remedied and spore levels are acceptable. This service includes air testing, visual cleanliness, moisture verification, written mold survey and a certificate.

  • Non-Investigatory Mold Testing is the testing most people need when they suspect they have a mold problem.  It includes moisture metering, visual inspection of areas, air testing and/or lift tape sampling.  A written mold survey is provided with a certificate, if applicable. 

 

  • Investigatory Mold Testing is an invasive, more thorough form of testing typically reserved for severe situations where a comprehensive scope of work is required.  It includes everything offered in the non-investigatory mold testing plus opening up suspect areas exhibiting moisture or other signs of mold colonization.  Paradise Environmental does not include, nor perform repair of the areas tested.

With the use of some of our Mold Testing tools, we were able to look inside the wall without tearing it
apart. We found lots of Stachybotrys 
Mold that was not visible unless a 
trained technician uses the correct 
tools.
Suspect Mold Air Samples being
taken for air quality.
Moisture testing on walls. This
is perhaps the most important 
step. If you had a water leak, 
water damage, or moisture 
intusion, mold can grow on your
walls or inside your walls.
Testing walls with an infrared tool.  Notice the difference in color, which can signify to a trained technician, moisture is elevated, even though not seen with the naked eye. With moisture present, mold can grow.
Mold in walls being inspected. 
Sometimes Mold can be hard to
find unless you can find a way to
check with in the wall cavity.
Mold Inspection in the wall. Notice the Black Mold (Stachybotrys Mold). Not visible until we were able to open the wall. 
Mold testing visible mold with the use of lift tape sampling, as the homeowner didnt want to begin invasive type testing. The lift tape was used to sample mold, and later when analyzed back at our inhouse laboratory, it was found to indeed be "Stachybotrys Mold" or black mold.
