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 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 remediators have the professional education and experience to properly perform a mold assessment.
There are few instances where a mold remediation contractor has the knowledge or experience to perform a quality professional investigation of an indoor air quality problem likely due to mold.
Atlantic Environmental, Inc. is an environmental air quality testing and consulting company with no affiliation with any contractors. Further, we have 40 years of experience in indoor air quality and mold/microbiological investigations. In addition, where we have identified a mold or other IAQ problem, we can recommend alternative solutions to eliminating or remediating the problem. We can write specifications for mold remediation, monitor such projects, perform clearance inspections/sampling and act as expert witness in legal matters/litigation.
Again, the State of Texas requires any individual performing investigations where mold may be involved must have a Texas Licence as a Mold Consultant or Mold Inspector.
