Wellness Assessments are our flagship service. This is a comprehensive assessment of your home or building. It includes a robust report summarizing all identified issues, recommendations for those issues and necessary remediation plans (referred to as a mold remediation protocol). This service is billed as a flat fee plus sample fees.

1. PRE-ASSESSMENT: Every assessment starts by gathering information about your issues, concerns and goals. This includes anything you can tell us about the moisture history of the building, including leaks and spills, as well as other things like visible damage and strange odors. These are all clues that can help us identify the problems.


2. VISUAL ASSESSMENT: The next step is a thorough sweep of the structure. We use specialized instruments including FLIR infrared cameras and moisture meters where necessary. We also take VOC, CO2 and humidity readings.


3. SAMPLING: After the visual assessment, we’ll briefly discuss what was found and develop a sampling strategy with you to help confirm sources of contamination and to analyze the overall level of contamination in different areas of the building. Samples are then collected, a chain of custody is completed and samples are sent to the labs. Sampling types:

  • “Direct Exam” refers to samples that are read under a microscope to identify and quantify the genus (family) of molds present. Spore trap air samples capture fungal spores present in the air. Surface samples (tape, swab or bulk) are collected directly from a surface containing suspect visible mold to identify the genus of molds present and whether they are growing on that surface. This type of sampling is used to assess suspect mold sources.

  • “PCR Sampling” (ERMI, HERTSMI-2, Fungi10) is a DNA-based method for quantifying mold species commonly found in water damaged buildings. Yes, this is the same technology used for Covid testing. This type of sampling is the best way to understand overall moldiness of entire areas (rooms or multiple rooms).


4. ASSESSMENT REPORT: Once we receive the lab results, we’ll put together a report that contains pictures and descriptions of the issues, interpretation of lab results and recommendations for each issue. This includes a mold remediation protocol, if applicable. Please note there is a two-week turnaround time for the report. Lab results and report writing take time. The remediation process and other corrections can take weeks or even months. This is not an overnight matter.


5. FOLLOW-UP CONSULT: We include a 1-hour follow-up session to review the report, answer questions and ensure that you have a firm understanding of the situation and next steps.


If you have had a recent water event or if you have specific areas of concern, our Basic Assessment services may be a good fit. Rather than searching for problems, we will focus on the areas you have identified, do our best to determine the extent of the mold problem and make the appropriate recommendations. This includes the mold remediation protocol, if applicable.
