Mold Inspection and Testing
Mold assessment or sometimes called “inspection” is an inspection of visible and accessible areas of your home and a microscopic sampling of the air and surfaces to correctly determine if it is truly a mold issue or something else.
Following the inspection and laboratory analysis by a 3rd party qualified laboratory, you will receive (usually two days later) a complete written report on the findings and recommendations and suggestions (sometimes called a “Protocol”) on how to treat and cure the problem.
This inspection includes HVAC system evaluation, Infrared Thermal Imaging, to detect potential wet areas. See > IR Thermal Imaging

MCSIAC is licensed and insured in Florida as indoor air quality professionals. Because we also possess Building Construction and Air Conditional Florida licensing. MSCIAC inspection is more thorough than others. Your inspection is evaluated through several sets of educated eyes providing a more encompassing report as to WHY, WHERE, and HOW.
Florida Statute 468 prohibits the mold inspector (company or individual, no matter the relationship) to also be the mold remediator for 12 months after the inspection. Be careful of ‘free inspections’ offered by remediation or service companies! They produce a so-called ‘free’ inspection only to capture the mitigation and remediation phases of the work. And, the free inspection is usually bad, so there is always work for them on the back end.
You need a certified 3rd party inspector that stands by YOU.
Post Remediation Verification – “PRV” (Called “Post Testing” or “Clearance Testing”) is the process of re-testing area(s) remedied by other companies. PRV is an unstated requirement of most insurance companies. Now that your home is noted to have mold, your insurance company may not continue your insurance coverage unless you prove mold is now within normal fungal ecology.
MCSIAC has performed hundreds of mold remediations and is certified by the State of Florida for mold remediation. Florida Statute 468 does not allow conflict of interest,therefore, MCSIAC cannot perform remediation when MCSIAC also performs the inspection at the same address.
Our mold remediation experience, knowledge, and expertise, licenses provides a wealth of knowledge additional knowledge to correctly perform and write remediation protocols. How can an inspection company write a correct mold remediation protocol if they do not have a Florida Remediation License to do so?
Our remediation licenses also provide MCSIAC an additional advantage. As far as we know, MCSIAC is the only licensed AC company that also has a mold remediation license.
