Many fancy themselves experts on mold, so understanding their background on the subject can shine light on the advice they give.
Occasionally people offer advice based on a pre-set agenda. Some lean towards sounding the panic alarm regarding every mold situation. Others are too lax because they've never experienced any ill effects from mold. So were does The Mold Consultant LLC stand? What is our particular brand of mold politics?
We are best described as neutral, unbiased, impartial, dispassionate but not disinterested. Here at The Mold Consultant, we think of ourselves as the Switzerland of mold! Our consultations are based on facts gathered from a thorough inspection of your situation, not prejudged determinations from past mold situations or news stories.
What makes us neutral is that fact that we have nothing to gain if you do or do not have mold! Our findings are based on your facts not our needs. Much like a Dr. examining a patient, we are interested but unaffected by the outcome of the findings.
This means several things for you.
Lastly, we should talk about our credentials. All Consultants are trained by a CMRS, CR, & CRMI. Accredited by RIA (Restoration Industry Association) IAQA (Indoor Air Quality Association) & the AIAQC (American Indoor Air Quality Council.) And our founder, sits on the national certification board of the AIAQC that certifies professionals in nine different air quality disciplines.
CMRS is a Certified Microbial Remediation Supervisor. These guys are the top of the food chain when it comes to understanding mold.
CR is a Certified Restorer. When it comes to disaster services, such as Water damage & fire damage, these are the know-it-all guys of that world. What place does a CR have in your mold situation? Good question. Two reasons.
CRMI is a Certified Residential Mold Inspector. The name is self-explanatory but we should state the obvious benefits anyway. A mold inspector is qualified to take air samples and understands all the usual suspects when it comes to mold problems. This is the guy that preaches the importance of looking in the attic, fighting through the spider webs in the crawl space in order to be a good mold detective. That's the best way to describe the know-how they bring to the table. When you call The Mold Consultant to your home or business they will find all the clues and show you all the evidence in your mold case!
