Mold Inspection and Mold Testing Services Mahwah Bergen County NJ Mold Inspection And Mold Remediation – Very Different Disciplines


While the Assessment of or inspection for Mold and the Remediation process share commonalities, it’s essential to recognize that these are very different disciplines. Inspection and Testing for Mold is meant to discover, identify and characterize the problem, Mold Remediation is meant to eliminate it.  Collaborative work by professionals in both areas is essential in managing mold problems in the home.

When you suspect that you have a mold issue in your house, it is important to remember that Mold Inspection and Mold Remediation are not the same. Consider hiring a Mold Inspector to discover and then identify the type of mold, first. If the inspector finds that there is a pervasive mold problem he or she would probably recommend calling in a Mold Remediation Service. Certified professionals in both areas often cooperate in working to eliminate your mold problem.


Mold Inspection | Mold Testing


Mold Testing NJ-NY is a Mold Assessment Service working in the Northern NJ area. We do not remediate a mold problem, we inspect and test the air and surfaces to determine whether mold exists. We identify the type of mold and how extensive the mold growth is. The amount of mold will determine whether or not we recommend remediation. If the person who tests for mold also offers remediation service, this can present a conflict of interest. And while there is no shortage of reputable and competent Mold Remediation Services in NJ, why not avoid any potential for a conflict?

Mold Testing NJ-NY also offers re-testing after remediation to allow one to feel sure the mold has been removed. Mold Inspection and Testing are the first steps in resolving a mold problem in the home or property.
