Radon testing since 1999, indicates to us that about one out of two Naples or Ft Myers condos and high rise units have elevated radon levels. 

We have performed over 20,000 radon tests in our area which includes all of Collier and Lee Counties.  Elevated radon levels in a home is a serious health concern (#2 cause of lung cancer) but is best considered just another home repair.  Elevated radon levels can be easily lowered by a Florida DOH certified radon mitigation business.

Mold inspections should be a concern to Naples, Bonita Springs and Ft Myers homebuyers. 

Problems occur when inexperienced "mold assessors" perform mold tests and claim a home has "elevated mold counts" and suggest you need a mold remediator.  No one should label a home as mold contaminated using just mold air samples.  Mold air samples can be wrong for many reasons; mold problems can ONLY be determined with a visual inspection to identify the location and source of the mold contamination.

Elevated mold spore count alone only,suggests the need for a mold assessment not remediation. A mold assessment / inspection report will not only document where the mold is but what caused it and include recommendations for corrections, often called protocols.

Radon & Mold  Professionals had the first mold inspector in Naples, Marco Island (Collier County) licensed by the state of Florida as a Mold Assessor, Doug Wall a Certified Indoor Environmentalist.  John Cosgrove, CIE also from Radon & Mold Professionals was the first State of Florida Licensed Mold Assessor in Lee County providing mold inspections and testing for Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Estero, Sanibel Island and Bonita Springs.

Mold Inspection without infrared thermal imaging is not complete.

Sooner or later the inspector will miss a "wet spot". Mold needs moisture to grow (food and water). Infrared cameras and moisture meters are essential to identify "wet spots" that can grow mold. Your Naples home will almost always have mold spores in the indoor air but like most living things they need moisture to grow (food & water). Mold growth in your home should be avoided.

Our Bonita Springs, Naples Florida licensed mold assessors (inspectors) always use infrared cameras during a mold inspection, some inspectors charge extra when they use their infra red camera, we never do. We always use the cameras to do the best job.

Naples and Bonita Springs consumers should understand that “Mold Testing” (Air Sampling for Mold) may be useful as part of a mold assessment, but it is never a substitute for a thorough visual inspection.

A visual inspection is the most important initial step in identifying a possible contamination problem.

Testing is not recommended as the first step to determine if you have a mold problem.

Our ACAC Certified Indoor Environmentalists provide Florida Residential, Commercial, and Industrial Mold Inspections and Mold Testing in Naples Bonita Springs, Fort Myers and Cape Coral. Serving Home Owners, Buyers, Sellers, Realtors, Insurance Companies, and all Private and Public Sectors needing Indoor Environmental Mold Inspections and Mold Testing Services

We prove our mold assessment is the best over 800 times a year.  Our detailed mold reports with nationally accepted remediation recommendations based on industry standards are second to none.    A mold test is only part of a mold inspection.  When the new Florida law becomes effective (2010), E&O insurance, extensive training and experience, detailed reports will be required for mold assessment.
Your mold inspector should be able to interpret your lab analysis, if he can't, you should consider hiring a Certified Indoor Environmentalist.  (see EPA recommendation below)

 What is a mold inspection (assessment)?

"a mold assessment is to determine the sources, locations and extent of mold growth in a building, to determine the condition(s) that caused the mold growth, and to enable the assessment consultant to prepare a mold remediation protocol."

Did you order a mold inspection and just get lab analysis for a report? You had a mold test! A mold test analysis is only part of a mold inspection Report. This is not a reliable method of determining whether the property has a mold issue and does not identify any sources or information about why there is an elevated spore count. A mold cleanup company needs a complete report

Indoor environmental health and safety can often require investigations into such issues as water damage due to severe weather, faulty construction, or plumbing. Remediation of fungal contamination may be required to assure occupant safety.  Radon and Mold Professionals provides clearance testing to remediators but we do no remediation work to assure the consumer of no conflict of interest.
