Radon, Mold, Formaldehyde and Indoor Air Quality Assessment / Inspection / Testing

Naples and Ft Myers residents and businesses should understand that indoor air quality "inspectors" have huge difference in their education or training and especially experience. 

Most local Naples and Fort Myers mold assessors / inspectors have their training provided by Laboratories that want to promote testing (sampling), because the more samples the more money (profit) for them.

They take a couple 8 hours classes and the "expert" will promote mold air sampling (tests) to every consumers worried about mold.

Experience collecting hundreds of air samples does not make a mold expert, although many would have the consumer believe this. Experience interpreting the mold air sampling lab results generally separates the professionals from the "inspector" just trying to make extra money with an ad on service to his real job as a home inspector or contractor.  The lab tech should not be the person determining if your lab results are a concern, it's the mold assessors (inspectors) job. 

You cannot label a home or structure as having a "mold problem" based on air sampling (testing) alone; too many factors can skew the results.

A visual inspection of hundreds, in our case, thousands of structures provides the experience to identify the source and extent of a mold contamination.  A through visual inspection takes time if done properly, home inspectors for example can't take the required time or they would lose the job to the "cheaper" home inspector that doesn't. 

In the mold inspection business, you really do "get what you pay for". 

Certified Indoor Environmentalists and Industrial Hygienists have to prove years of education / experience for their certifications.    There are about 300 licensed mold assessors serving Collier and Lee Counties, only about a dozen have proven experience and training as a CIE or IH. 

Why would anyone hire a home inspector for formaldehyde testing, if he has no E&O insurance, training or real experience (buying a questionable test kit with instructions on the internet is not experience). Formaldehyde testing is usually one of two methods, a bulk sample of suspected material is sent to the lab or air sampling using a sorbent tube (sorbent tubes need to be refrigerated before and after test- including shipping).

Plenty of home inspectors provide radon testing for Real Estate transactions, during the last recession many took a two day class to become certified.  They perform a couple radon tests a week and are "experts".  We have performed over 23,000 radon tests just for Real Estate sales and thousands more for schools, assisted-living facilities and home owners associations.  Naples and Bonita Springs consumers should understand that "radon technicians" can have vast differences in experience; something to remember when asking questions concerning their test.
