Mold Inspection, Testing and Remediation
Residents of Southwest Florida and Fort Myers that have concerns about indoor mold growth ruining their property and affecting their health, their family’s health, and their friends’ can take a deep breath of relief. ACP is here to help you in the fight against black mold. The mold testing and remediation division of American Construction and Plumbing is equipped with the newest and and the most reliable technology in the industry today.
ACP’s Mold Division can do the black mold (Stachybotrys chartarum) inspection/testing as well as offer you a remediation. We will work directly with your insurance company to make sure that you get a fair shake on the coverage that you are due. Our licensed and expert assessors will address all the questions or concerns that you might have about the mold problems in your home. Our first goal is to let you know if you have a mold problem. And if you do, can it be taken care of by you?
Sometimes a visual mold inspection or the collection of air samples do not provide sufficient evidence for us to determine whether or not there is truly a mold issue in your home. We can also get you answers by bringing in our canine mold detective, Trina, who can detect hidden mold, water leaks and Chinese drywall. For more information about canine mold detection, CLICK HERE.
When we do find evidence of black mold, whether by air sample, visual inspection, or canine mold detection, we must then examine how to treat the problem. Certain types of mold fungus are not easily airborne unless they are disturbed. The dreaded toxic black mold can multiply overnight and spread throughout the building if it is mishandled. Pinpointing the type of mold species is critical in figuring out whether you can handle the remediation by yourself or if it requires professional remediation and is an insurance case.

We Found Mold. What Next?
For our Fort Myers customers who do have elevated levels of mold in their residence, we have a specific procedure for mold removal. This includes a certified step-by-step procedure for how the job should be performed and who among our staff should be doing the work. Mold remediation differs widely from a typical remodeling job. When removing mold contaminated materials, you are potentially sending thousands of mold spores into the air. Because of this, hazardous areas must be contained and equipped with a microbial air scrubber while work is being performed and completed. After contaminated materials are removed, walls must be hepa vacuumed and treated with antimicrobial solutions and sealants. These are the mold removal procedures that professional remediation companies have the capabilities of doing that a normal construction company would not. If this type of work is attempted by a company without the proper experience and licensure, they will only further the air quality issues within the building areas.
Sometimes customers have results that come back with no problem at all or one small enough to be handled on their own. Check out our DIY Mold Removal Page for information on removing mold on your own. Here at ACP Mold Inspections, we live with the ethical belief that our customers deserve the most accurate and cost effective solution to their mold inspection and/or removal.
Our mold assessors are the best at determining whether or not you have a problem, where the source is, and giving you specialized advice on how to get rid of it.
