Texas Mold Inspections by Texas Licensed Mold Consultant with No Conflict of Interest
Many Texas Mold Assessment Consultants also do mold remediation. The Texas regulations on Licensed Mold Consultants do not prevent mold inspections and mold remediation being performed by the same organization.
Clearly we believe this is a conflict of interest. Mold Remediation is far more lucrative than mold inspections in most cases. It is clear that most such organizations only perform mold inspections to have an “inside track” on performing the more lucrative mold remediation. Performing mold assessments requires special science skills available from industrial hygienists, microbiologists, toxicologists or epidemiologists and it is unlikely mold re-mediators have the professional education and experience to properly perform a mold assessment.
Atlantic Environmental, Inc. is an indoor air quality (IAQ) testing and consulting company with no affiliation with any contractors. Further, we have 40 years of experience in indoor air quality (IAQ) and mold/microbiological investigations. In addition, where we have identified a mold or other IAQ problem, we can recommend alternative solutions to eliminate or remediating the problem. We can write specifications for mold remediation, monitor such projects, perform clearance inspections/sampling and act as an expert witness in legal matters/litigation.
If the problem is not mold, we can test/sample and identify the real problems bacteria, chemicals, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, VOC’s and identify solutions.
Again, the State of Texas requires any individual performing investigations where mold may be involved must have a Texas License as a Mold Consultant or Mold Inspector.
Contact us if you feel you have an indoor air quality (IAQ)/mold problem and wish to avoid a conflict of interest between a mold investigator and a mold re-mediator. Our Texas Licensed Mold Assessment Consultant has over 40 years of experience in such health-related issues and we have no affiliation with mold remediation contractors.
