Mold Testing

Before obtaining the services of a professional environmental consultant to perform mold testing, it is important that you ask about their certifications and qualifications including post-secondary education; formal education goes hand in hand with specialized training.

There are no official government agencies regulating the mold industry; however, there are recognized certifying organizations that develop and write industry standards for conducting proper and systematic mold inspections. Certification is awarded to candidates based on education, experience, continual training and successfully passing a closed book examination.

The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is the industry’s leading organization that publishes the standards of practice to be used as a guideline by emergency response contractors. These standards are S500 - Water Restoration Guidelines and S520 - Standard and Guidelines for Professional Mold Remediation.

Assurance Environmental Inspection Services Inc. is a proud member of the industry’s leading institutions holding their highest certifications. Your health and safety is of utmost concern - our single focus is to provide you with cost effective solutions that address your particular indoor air quality concerns. Should you suspect that mold may be present in your home, do not hesitate to contact us for help.

  Why professional mold testing?

Currently there are mold home test kits available in the retail market. These kits only serve to tell you what you already know; mold is always present in your home. Unfortunately, this fact is often used as a sales tactic to sell unnecessary services to unsuspecting consumers. Home kits do not identify the type or levels of mold and sometimes produce false results. Home test kits do not detect if the mold is active, dormant, toxic or non-toxic.

Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) do not recommend testing the air for molds in single-family dwellings and similar buildings as a first step. The recommended first step is having a trained investigator check your house for mold.
