Providing Comprehensive Testing & Inspection Services On-Site in Maine

When you have a mold infestation, a virtual or remote inspection of your home or business just won't cut it. You need to know the exact risks and costs.

We understand that Maine is a big state, with lots of space between areas of population. We also understand that mold is nothing to be taken lightly. There are serious risks associated with allowing it to propagate and infect those living within the confines of affected area.

We test the surfaces - collecting actually mold cultures, and the air - using specialized equipment to draw airborne spores from the ambient spaces, to provide you a careful assessment of your situation, and the cost to remove the mold, its stains and odors.
