Why choose Certified Indoor Air?
Some states require licensing and uphold certain standards when it comes to mold inspection, testing, and remediation. Unfortunately, North Carolina is not one of these states. The ACAC is an organization that seeks to standardize the industry and ensure that those that are providing these services have the knowledge and experience to do the job right. Certified Indoor Air is one of the few mold inspection companies in North Carolina that is licensed and meets the stringent standards set forth by the ACAC including rigorous testing and continuing education coursework to maintain certification.
While it is already illegal in many states, the ACAC has recommended nationwide legislation meant to protect homeowners from the conflict of interest that arises from companies performing both mold testing and mold remediation services.
1) Mold testing and microbial investigation, assessment, remediation, abatement and consulting services shall be performed by individuals who are certified by the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC) or another national, non-profit certifying body which:
a) is accredited by the Council of Engineering and Scientific Specialty Boards (CESB) and/or the American National Standards Institute under ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024, and
b) is wholly independent from training organizations, membership organizations and industry trade associations.
2) Individuals shall not conduct mold or microbial investigations, assessments or consultations for a period of one year on projects for which they have conducted remediation or abatement services.
3) Individuals shall not conduct mold or microbial remediation or abatement activities for a period of one year on projects for which they have conducted investigations, or assessments
Why test, and why test independently?
When a mold remediation company comes to your home to do an inspection, they have a vested interest in finding mold and selling you their remediation services. Our company performs thorough, professional mold inspection and testing services only. This way, YOUR best interest remains our top priority. If, after our inspection and testing is complete, we find no sources of significant or dangerous mold growth, our recommendation will be that no remediation is necessary. If we do find areas that need to be addressed with remediation, we will provide a written report with recommendations and protocols needed to resolve your issue, nothing more.
Secondly, if you have already had remediation work done on your home, how do you know if the problem is actually resolved? Many sources of water intrusion and mold lie hidden behind walls, in ventilation systems, attics, under carpet, etc. It is important to have independent mold testing done post-remediation to ensure that your remediator a) used proper containment, not cross contaminating your entire home making the situation worse than before, and b) did a thorough and complete job removing the source of the problem. This documentation can be especially valuable if you are working with your home insurance company.
Our team of licensed professionals aim to provide the most accurate and unbiased information possible to our clients. Your health and safety will always be our priority, guaranteed.
