Testing, Treatment & Remediation

Is It Mold Or Mildew

What Is Mold: A fungi is typically black or green and is often the result of a larger infestation. Can appear ‘fuzzy’ or ‘slimy’.

What Is Mildew: A fungi is typically gray or why that lays on top of a surface that is moist. Can appear ‘powdery’. You can also identify mildew by its smell, which is mild, musty, and/or pungent. 


Mold/Mildew Testing: As soon as you suspect there is mold/mildew in your home or business call our experts immediately. Our team will immediately do a full inspection of your property. This includes any testing and reporting. Our tests determine what may be causing the mold/mildew and what kind of microbial activity is growing. On top of that we will provide you with a detailed proposal for our services.

Asbestos Testing: Asbestos is known for its strength and resistance to heat and fire. It is a very dangerous carcinogen that can cause mesothelioma, a type of lung cancer. As a result, many states have passed laws requiring asbestos to be safely removed. We take a sample from your home or building and have it tested.

Ways We Test For Mold/Mildew

  • Full Inspection: Complete inspection of your home and/or building.
  • Air Sample: Identify the levels and types of mold/mildew.
  • Tape Lift/Swab Samples: Identifies visible mold/mildew.
  • Moisture Readings: Locates source of mold/mildew.
  • Thermal Imaging: Detects moisture and humidity behind walls and under floors.
  • Particle Counting: Locates hot spots (where mold/mildew is likely reproducing).
  • Borescope: Inspect inside venting and locate problems in HVAC system.
  • Relative Humidity Check: Locate areas that hold onto humidity (where mold/mildew easily reproduces).
  • Full Moisture Mapping: Our equipment locates cracks in foundations, seepage behind walls, pipe leaks, and other areas.


Mold/Mildew Treatment: After we have inspected your home or business, we will start treating the infected areas. When our technicians bring in our equipment and treatment(s). In some cases, depending on the extent of the mold/mildew, more than one treatment may be necessary. On top of that our entire process is environmentally friendly.

On top of that we can also clean the dust and debris your HVAC system and ductwork. Not only will this kill the mold/mildew, but it will also remove any odor coming from your system and clean the air you breathe.

Asbestos Treatment: It is extremely important to treat asbestos that right way. If it is aged or mishandled, the particles can become airborne. Removing asbestos depend on the condition and the tests we get back from the lab. The two treatment options are abatement or encapsulation. Depending on the risk and level of exposure, our team will seal off the work area with plastic sheeting and maintain negative air pressure within the worksite. We will also disable the HVAC/Electrical systems and install warning signs around the area.  Once the work is complete, our team of experts decontaminate themselves in a decontamination unit.


Mold/Mildew Remediation: If part of your home or business is untreatable with our treatments, we do have other means to get rid of the infected area. We can remove the contaminated materials, clean out your HVAC system, Air-scrubbing to clean your air, construction where needed, and more. Our team of experts are highly trained and can handle any size project.

Asbestos Remediation: Once we have removed the asbestos, we will retest the area and send it off to the lab. When we get the results back you can reinhabit the area or start the construction project you had in mind for that area.

Our Process

A very important part of the process is taking a sample of the mold/mildew and test it in a lab to determine what kind of mold/mildew it its. This helps us determine how to treat it most effectively.

Whitecap Project

Moisture control. You can achieve this by repairing the leaks in your home, get your HVAC system inspected annually, clean your gutters, and using mold-resistant materials.

Itchy eyes, sneezing, coughing, etc. Different molds affect different people in different ways. If you suspect you might be suffering from mold exposure, you should immediately contact your doctor.

Black mold typically has a musty, pungent smell and has visible dark rings and spots. However, the only way to know for certain what kind of mold it is, is to have a sample tested at a qualified laboratory.

Mold can grow within 24-48 hours after water damage.

YES! Not only can it cause structural damage to your property, it can cause respiratory, neurological, and other health issues.
