Visible growth in a Tuscaloosa home/building

A mold inspection for testing is performed by a licensed and insured state qualified personnel that is trained and qualified to perform the proper air and surface testing for microbial growth (or mold.)

A remediation company performs the removal of the damaged areas and uses the proper chemicals to prevent further growth and disinfect cleanable surfaces.

SERVPRO ® of Tuscaloosa is a Mold Remediation company. Our field team representatives are trained in finding the sources of the moisture and remediating the issue. We are not licensed to perform mold testing, inspection or written protocols.

-Mold inspections look for evidence of past and or current growth that may indicate a problem.

-Mold inspections look for visible, inside walls, crawlspaces and are able to get surface lab testing.

-Mold inspections will be able to lab test for the type of growth is in the home/building.

-Mold inspections are a subset of Indoor Air Quality investigations. They can do air quality tests to determine what irritants are present in the air.

-Mold inspections will generate a protocol report which you can present to a remediation company to follow in your home/building.

If microbial growth becomes to much for you to deal with in your home/ office, call SERVPRO® of Tuscaloosa to help with the remediation process.
