Mold Inspections, Remediation & Testing in Bordentown, New Jersey – 08505
Bordentown is a city in Burlington County, New Jersey. Incorporated in 1825, it is a moderately old area in NJ. The city of Bordentown traverses the Delware River and Crosswicks Creek. It also has a large number of brooks and creeks running through the city.
When you factor in the age of the very old homes, the history and geography, you wind up with an area that has a medium to high risk for mold contamination.
Any Bordentown homeowners who find mold in their home, may be interested in getting an inspection done. Or getting some mold testing or remediation.
But before you do, it would be very wise to take some simple advice:
- First, keep in mind that a reputable mold inspector should care about 1 thing – that is the safety of you, your home and (or) family.
- Second, you need to “inspect” the inspector as they’re doing their job. An experienced, ethical, passionate inspector will have his eyes and hands all over your home. He will crawl into crawl spaces, get into the attic, he will not be afraid to get dirty. He may ask permission to drill a hole into your walls or ceiling to insert a borescope (don’t worry, they will patch the holes before they leave). The point is, they will focus more on your home more then they focus on persuading you on what needs to be done.
- Third, please keep in mind that every industry has it’s fair shake of bad apples. If a mold inspector is in your Bordentown home for less than 10-15 minutes, and immediately starts trying to persuade you to spend hundreds or thousands on mold testing, you are likely dealing with a “bad apple” so to speak.
The simple fact is, mold testing does not need to be done in the majority of cases.
Like the EPA says, if there is mold in a home it needs to come out regardless of what strain it is or how much. It’s the inspectors job to isolate the source. After that he must assess the scope of the problem, devise a solution and explain in detail why that solution is the best.
It is often wise to call multiple companies out and compare what all the inspectors say. A lot of people just wanna “get it done”, so they’ll call and contract with 1 company… having no idea that the owner of that company is a scam artist who’s been arrested 3 times in the last 5 years. That last sentence is based on a real company who’s still operating in NJ. That have many pending court cases but continue to swindle homeowners into paying astronomical amounts for work that doesn’t need to be done.
So please, do your research. Never be afraid to grill the mold inspector. Our mold inspectors are taught to ask a lot of questions. This generally motivates the homeowners to do the same in return. So in a way, we welcome tough questions. Our company is fully devoted to earning your trust.
