Mold Testing in Portland, OR
The multi-step Portland mold testing offered by GHS Portland is designed to quickly and accurately identify the levels and types of mold you are dealing with so we can put together the most cost-effective plan for treatment. In conjunction with our Mold and Moisture Assessment the testing process is fast and non-invasive, usually taking about one hour. A certified technician will take (on average) 3-5 air and/or surface samples from priority spaces (rooms) within the property. One of these samples should always include an outdoor, or secure, baseline sample to provide the proper comparative analysis of “normal” mold levels for the environment. During the mold testing your certified GHS Portland technician will also help you target overlooked issues that may be contributing to any mold and mildew concerns in your property.
GHS Professional Testing
- Testing follows IESO (Indoor Enviroment Standards Organisation) methods and procedures for mold testing.
- Analysis will be reported by an independent microbial laborotory.
- A minimum of two samples (one indoor suspect area and one control, either outdoor or indoor non-suspect area) is required to be taken.
- Proper assessment and remediation procedured are critical to providing a successful project.
Once onsite testing is complete the samples are sent to a 3rd party, independent laboratory for scientific analysis. Within 48 business hours, the laboratory will provide us with a detailed Mold Report indicating if mold is present, the types of mold and if any spaces have ‘elevated’ or ‘non-elevated’ levels of mold-spores in the airborne environment. Your GHS Portland technician will provide the Mold Report and a detailed consultation explaining the results and options of how to best proceed with remediation, if necessary. Then, if requested GHS Portland will develop a complete scope of work outlining the specific steps for safe, fast, affordable and, effective remediation.
