Testimonials

Richard and his team are one of the most professional, timely and fair home service professionals I've worked with. I almost pulled out the floorboards myself after smelling mildew and instead decided to call in a professional to test the area first. Rich's team came in, provided and estimate and found the cause of the issue which was black mold due to water dripping under the kitchen sink. Our daughter was 8 months old at the time so I'm really glad that I used his services to find the root cause of the issue which we used another service provider to resolve. I recommend Air Allergen & Mold Testing to anyone who wants reliable service.

Mold and Asbestos Inspections

Mold Inspection and Testing Services 

Air Allergen and Mold Testing's inspection for mold begins with a phone discussion regarding the reasons for your concern, any health symptoms, such as asthma, allergies, headaches or loss of energy; specifics about your property; and any abnormal events such as odors, visible mold or water intrusion. How much is a mold inspection for your home can be calculated during this discussion.

Air Allergen's mold inspector starts with a trip to inspect your home or business. Based on your issues, air and dust samples are taken during the property inspection to determine how much mold is present, where it is present, how mold growth has been influenced by intermittent events, what to do about it, and how to reduce mold growth in the future. Unless otherwise requested, Air Allergen and Mold Testing is most often able to schedule an appointment the same day or within 1 day of your inquiry.

Why Test The Air You Breathe?
There are many studies linking ingredients in the air we breathe to the onset of chronic diseases. We spend ninety percent of our time indoors. Poor Indoor Air Quality has been linked to coughs, headaches, dizziness, Asthma, COPD, allergic reactions, sinus problems, depression, loss of energy, skin eruptions, itchy eyes, and many other diseases including cardio vascular disease and cancer. Studies relating to concerns about Indoor Air Quality can be found here.

If what we breathe matters, why isn't there more focus on Indoor Air Quality?

Drug Companies sell Pharmaceuticals.
Allergists treat allergies.
Environmentalists focus on outdoor air.
Pharmacists dispense drugs.
Pulmonologists repair the lungs.
Emergency room doctors stabilize the patient.
Landlords minimize expenses.
Health Insurance, Medicaid, and Medicare pay for healthcare.
Few focus on measuring and correcting unhealthy Indoor Air Quality.

Georgia Mold Testing Certification.
While there is no Atlanta mold inspection or Georgia mold testing certification provided by the city, or state, Air Allergen and Mold Testing has among its employees a Microbiologist, a Chemist, and an Industrial Engineer with college degrees in their respective fields. Our employees have over eighty years of collective experience in mold inspections, sample analysis, remediation training, construction, and disaster recovery to interpret findings and provide guidance information. We are the only mold inspection company in the state with our own lab that tests for mold. Air Allergen and Mold Testing has earned TrustDALE.com's seven point certification and is an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau, member of the Atlanta Apartment Association and American Industrial Hygiene Association, and participates in the AIHA PATS program to demonstrate proficiency in lab analysis. No other mold inspection company provides so much value at less cost.

Asbestos inspections detect asbestos containing building materials that may become unsafe when agitated during restoration or demolition. Asbestos inspections by a state certified asbestos inspector are commonly needed to satisfy permitting requirements. Certified asbestos inspectors are trained to know which materials are most likely to include asbestos and how to collect the samples safely and securely. A state certified asbestos inspector is required to take an annual refresher course to retain certification.

Air Allergen's state certified asbestos inspector can generally inspect the property and gather samples within 2 business days of receiving a call. The quantity of samples taken during an asbestos inspection is decided on by state and federal regulation based upon the purpose of the asbestos inspection as well as the type and quantity of each material found.

Samples taken during the asbestos inspection are sent to a commercial laboratory that has been accredited by NVLAP for analysis of bulk samples by Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM), the EPA method most commonly used for detecting asbestos containing materials.

While the PLM method is economical and sufficiently accurate for the first screening of samples gathered during an asbestos inspection, it is not as sensitive as the point count method for asbestos content near the regulated threshold of one percent.

Samples taken by our asbestos inspector with asbestos content between one and two percent that are suitable for point count analysis will be resubmitted to the lab for the more accurate point count method without additional cost to our clients. This reduces the risk of incurring an unnecessary and potentially significant abatement cost from using asbestos inspectors who do not use the point count method.

The asbestos content in most building materials has been regulated in the U.S. since the late 1970's; however asbestos use in flooring materials has never been banned. In addition, any materials obtained from overseas may still contain regulated quantities of asbestos. Thus, the commonly asked question "Was it built prior to 1980?" should only be used as a rough guideline and not as an excuse to forego testing. No building, regardless of the date of construction, is exempt from state and federal asbestos regulations.

If you are planning on remodeling or demolishing a building, consider having the materials sampled before work begins to make sure you are not exposing those in the environment to unnecessary health risks. The state of Georgia requires that if the quantity of materials to be disturbed is greater than 10 square feet, asbestos testing must be performed. Localities will require proof of testing prior to issuing any construction permits.

Materials identified as containing asbestos must be disposed of in a specialized manner. An asbestos abatement company can help ensure proper disposal of asbestos containing materials. Once the asbestos containing materials have been removed, other construction debris can be disposed of normally. If asbestos materials are not removed first, then all debris must be treated as though it contains asbestos and must be disposed in a specialized landfill, a far greater expense than normal disposal.
