It is of the utmost importance that mold be identified before it becomes a problem so that it can be removed and your family can remain as healthy as possible.
Our certified Mold Inspectors and Remediation crews utilize the most advanced detection equipment available in our assessments and analysis. We use an independent laboratory, accredited by the A.I.H.A., (American Industrial Hygiene Association), to perform complete analysis of any samples taken on-site. We offer detailed reports that include full written and photographic documentation of our findings and recommendations.

Oregon Mold Inspection
Our experienced technicians know how to spot mold with the naked eye. But that’s not our only tool in identifying mold in the home. In fact we are equipped with state of the art devices which are capable of detecting moisture, fungal growth and combine these tools with knowledge & experience to provide the best mold inspection possible. We provide detailed reports that include full written documentation of our findings and recommendations as well as photos of the problem areas. We also identify areas of high humidity and/or inadequate ventilation, such as the attic, kitchen, basement, bathroom, and closet that are prime locations for mold colonies to develop. In addition to the interior of your home we will also inspect the exterior for areas where moisture may be entering such as flat ledges, inadequate drip edges, old roof shingles, missing flashing around the chimney and plumbing vent stacks may all allow moisture into attics or walls.
Oregon Mold Testing & Containment
As an addition to the inspection we can take surface samples of visible mold growth for testing at an independent, A.l.H.A. accredited laboratory to determine the types of mold present. This is important because some forms of mold are relatively innocuous while others are potentially very harmful. Aerobic screening is the second available option. By sampling the air in the suspected indoor area and then out of doors as a control, we will be able to determine the types of mold spores in the environment and at what levels they are present. For more information about our Mold Testing Service give us a call. Once the mold is identified containment is the next step. Real Estate Mold Solutions will proactively work to limit the spread of mold throughout the building in order to minimize the exposure of remediators and building occupants to mold by establishing an appropriate containment area. Mold contamination levels and the size of the affected area will be major factors in our Certified Mold Remediation Contractor’s (CMRC) decision as to the scope of the containment. We will work with you to decide whether remaining in your home during the remediation process is an option.
Oregon Mold Remediation & Reconstruction
Once the site is contained we begin with an analytical survey of the property to determine the most effective, least disruptive remediation method. This decision is made based on fungus type and location as well as the extent of damages and exposure. Once the source of moisture is discovered and corrected, the mold removal can begin. Mold removal/remediation often includes removing damaged materials such as wood, drywall, flooring, etc. and can require reconstruction. If that happens we can assist you in your reconstruction efforts after mold has been remediated from the property. We have craftspeople experienced in a wide variety of trades including, but not limited to, Roofing, Carpentry, Ventilation, and Insulation. If you have a construction need, please don’t hesitate to ask.
