Mold Inspection & Testing

Non-invasive / non-destructive visual inspections for mold and conditions that cause it; testing determines whether mold is problematic indoors and affecting the air quality for building inhabitants.

What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a great building material because of it’s high tensile strength, its flexibility, and its resilience to chemicals, high temperatures and stress. As a result, it can be found in many building places including: floor tiles, mastics, caulking, roofing material, joint compound, plaster, pipe insulation, popcorn ceiling, stucco, some wall textures, and vermiculite insulation.  Nearly 30 million tons of asbestos building materials were used in the U.S.  between 1900 and 1975, and 80% to 90% percent of that is still in place.  For this reason, asbestos is found in many commercial and residential buildings built before 1975. ETA performs bulk asbestos testing to determine
material content and associated health risks. 

 

Volatile Organic Compounds  

VOC testing is performed in your home or business to ascertain whether harmful chemicals are present that may cause unfavorable health conditions for occupants.

 

Infrared Thermography 

Thanks to thermal imaging, ETA Inspectors have the ability to examine roofs, floors and walls for moisture intrusions, energy loss and electrical problems faster and more thoroughly than the competition. While infrared does not specifically detect mold, it does provide Inspectors with the distinct advantage of quickly and accurately identifying conditions where mold typically grows.

 

Post-Remediation Testing

 A post-remediation verification survey (a.k.a. clearance testing) includes a visual inspection and moisture assessment of construction materials utilized in the remediation work, and air quality testing inside the work area confirms moisture abatement.

 

Allergen Screening

Quick, affordable testing technology confirms whether building interiors and its occupants are affected by asthma triggers and allergens  


Bacteria Testing  

Testing determines if bacteria contamination has occurred by taking surface and culture samples of suspect areas.


Arsenic Testing

Having your water tested is a great place to start if you have concerns about arsenic exposure.
