Mold Services and Inspections

PRIME Engineering & Environmental Building ServicesWhat Is Mold?

Molds are one of the five Kingdoms of life on earth. The other four Kingdoms of life are: Plants, Animals, Monera (single cell organisms with no nucleus such as bacteria), and Protists (micro-organisms whose cells contain a nucleus such as algae).

Molds exist in every indoor and outdoor environment. The concerns to focus upon are the type of mold present, the quantity of mold present, and an individual’s own sensitivity. Some people have higher sensitivities than others to various molds. Therefore, and with good reason, there are no formally established or adopted limits for the type or levels of mold that are considered “acceptable”.

Molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. It is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors.

We are the only firm serving the Treasure Coast that is fully licensed for mold assessments and mold remediation, and we are pleased to work with insurance companies.

The equipment we use for sampling and analysis is state of the art for accuracy and certification of sample analysis. Furthermore, we offer the services of writing remediation protocols and formal mold remediation. We have in house mycology experts and our own environmental laboratory for analysis of mold samples, plus we have field technicians trained and well versed in mold remediation standards.
