Trained and certified mold assessors.

The population on Long Island is about 7.6 million people spread across four counties (Nassau, Suffolk, Queens and Brooklyn.) Whether these people are renting or own a home of their own, they need a roof over their heads. The air under that roof should should reflect the healthiest living conditions achievable. Living on the east coast we often see hurricanes or heavy rains as a result of a storm. These events may lead to disasters for dwelling occupants, including water damage and flooding. If the water is not removed immediately, and the home’s structural components are not dried properly, this could lead to environmental hazards, such as mold. We provide Long Island mold inspections in accordance with NYS.

Black Mold In Homes

Black mold (stachybotrys) is a result of long term water damage. This specific mold is a mycotoxin producer that may create hay-fever like symptoms, such as: headaches, sneezing, runny nose, red eyes and skin rash. These allergy-like symptoms may be misleading depending on the time of year. If these symptoms persist after the allergy season, it may be time to consider having your home tested for mold. Our assessors are trained and certified by the State of New York. They also receive ongoing classroom training to further develop their knowledge of mold, and how it can develop.

Where Does Mold Grow?

Mold often develops in warm, moist areas that lack ventilation. Sources of moisture include, plumbing leaks, roof damage, water in basements, humidity, etc. Mold will develop as long as there is a consistent moisture source. In order to identify mold, air or surface samples must be collected. These samples are then submitted to an accredited laboratory for analysis to determine the extent of the contamination. Based on the results, our licensed assessor will be able to generate a report including a full remediation protocol, outlining what needs to be done to remove the existing mold, and what should be done to prevent the mold from returning. You can rest assured that there is no conflict of interest when working with us. We do not perform remediation, so our reports are clear and unbiased.

As Long Island’s #1 most trusted mold inspectors, we evaluate your home as if it’s our own.
