Determination of cause and extent of mold property damage.
Analysis of fungal mold present as potential allergens or pathogens.
Certain species of "Black Mold" are cancer causing. Most "Black Mold" is totally irrelevant to human health. Only a experienced medical specialist investigator is qualified to make that determination.
Sampling for biologicals that may contributing factors must be considered.
We include up to 5 medical and legal mold samples with our
SPECIALIZED LEGAL MEDICAL AND CLINICAL MOLD HEALTH EXPOSURE RISK REPORTS
No two toxic mold inspection reports** are ever alike. They must never be a typical preformatted template checklist in style such as used in the general home inspection reports. Such a format is not qualified for and does not work given the complexities of studying a biological entities present within human habitations that have the potential of affecting (neurologically) and subsequently infecting (invasive disease) or otherwise interacting (allergy / immunosupression) with its occupants. It requires nothing less than a competent medically based scientific inquiry when and where health risk or injury is suspect or a high value property concern is involved. Such reports are of high interest and importance to your physician or pediatrician often providing health and life saving diagnostic information.
ABOUT "FREE INSPECTIONS
" We from time to time have people contact us after they have obtained a "free" mold inspection from a contractor or general home inspector that may have "inspected" a property and having performed some work. That contractor because he performed a "free" * inspection does not provide a written mold lab based sample anasyis report because the inspection is free but not the sampling or report. NOTE: All free mold inspections are connected with very expensive paid for repairs and never provide a lab analysis.
Other "free" inspections without report are without competent medical or legal standing and mere unqualified opinions where there is a reluctance to put it into writing since once in writing a legal liability is attached. When and or if the inspection is flawed, negligent, unqualified or in clear error resulting in a loss (unnecessarily forced out to move out to a hotel) or damages that can cause an inspector to find themselves in court.
MOLD HEALTH RELATED INSPECTION
Victims of property purchase where mold was concealed, covered up or not disclosed must be documented immediately."Time is of the essence" Inspection must be performed immediately or it will said that the mold appeared after the property was purchased.
Second opinions are available when previous inspections were flawed or work not need performed or ineffective
Insurance claims must be documented and reported as soon as a damage is identified. property owners must mitigate their damages.
Understand that if your inspection is required for any legal reason such as a property transfer, insurance, health injury claim or other pecuniary reason that may require legal scrutiny then you must have it certified and in writing or it is worthless and may cause you unneeded expense and delay and a dismissal of your case after you spend thousands of dollars in legal fees. We have represented numerous clients over the years and have the final word in court un rebutted - we get it right the first time.
IF ARE YOU A VICTIM OF MOLD INSPECTION INCOMPETENCE OR FRAUD CONTACT US. WE WILL DOCUMENT FOR LEGAL PURPOSES
A RECENT FREE INSPECTION
In a recent case (Jan 2000) a retired couple selling their home had a "free" mold inspection before a home closing because there were water stains on the bathroom wall and plumbing work needed to be performed. The "inspector" checked the property and claimed the property was mold free. The walls were resealed after work. The buyer's and their attorney demanded an inspection report but since a free inspection did not come with a free report a second inspection was called for that required a reopening of the walls, inspection and resealing - of course for full payment.
The old proverbial 'you get what you pay for" certainly holds true here.
Obtain a competent, lawful and complete inspection report from NJIE.
Our range of available services as requested may include:
A fully qualified scientific Inspection, analysis, indoor contamination assessment , remediation planning, remediation management, post remedy, and reporting. Documentation for insurance, property damage, health injury or other claims. Each inspection plan is determined by YOU the client depending what YOUR needs are. Random wholesale common inspections UNKNOWINGLY generally overlook key relevant factors that become self revealing in time after taking possession of the new home making recovery from the condition nearly impossible without a competent report.
ANOTHER FREE INSPECTION
February 2003. We received a a request for a second opinion for health related investigation and remediation estimate. A young couple with the wife still in the hospital with a newborn had a free inspection that was credited towards a remediation proposal of $14,000.00 for "Black Mold" Upon our investigation it was determined that no such remediation was necessary. Yes there was mold but of no clinical relevance.
ANOTHER FREE INSPECTION
JULY 2005 We conducted a free scientific study using subClinical Investigation® protocol # 1, with medical doctor on site to perform a full clinical interview with a "black mold" infected patient. We performed an investigation that determined the basement of this home was contaminated with a mold that was found to be growing in his brain (3 since 01/05 surgeries). We performed extensive fungal mold sampling and and culture testing at no cost. Upon our finding of the specie of fungal mold and its direct relevancy to the patient's infection we specified the scope of remediation and protocols to be employed for remediation.
We have NO interest in selling you any repairs or renovations! You may use your own qualified contractors or some of our competent and certified highly experienced referrals only if YOU ASK. In many cases we will put in writing that you may perform your own remediation.
Many self appointed "mold experts" will tell you the type of mold does not matter and just get rid of it. This view is limited and based upon ignorance of the fact some of these fungi are clearly immunosupressive, infectious and generators of carcinogens. In cases where health is concerned (ALLERGIES OR INFECTIONS) PROPER IDENTIFIECATION OF MOLD IS CRITICAL in determining what the occupants of the property must do i.e., take immediate steps to protect themselves or in some cases you must VACATE IMMEDIATLEY. Bleach does not kill all molds and in most cases fungus mold only goes into its' own form of a short term term remission withing a the home only to reappear months or a few years later.
This also determines the cost of the remediation. Fungal mold that represents a health risk require elaborate and expensive cleanup procedures. On the other hand if we determine the fungal mold has no relevancy to human health then there may be no cost for remediation as in CASE TWO above.

OUR FREE MOLD INSPECTION CONSULTATIONS
NJMI does not provide 'free" toxic mold inspections although we are known to provide complete inspections with full reporting "pro bono" or at a substantial reduction in fees under special circumstances generally relating to child or elder health for those with a fixed or limited income. Ask your physician, attorney or local health inspector to contact us.
If you have been diagnosed with a fungal infection or disease we are especially interested in such cases and in such you may also be eligible for a free research investigation by our medical research associates with l analysis and reporting. We even may pay for selected medical diagnostic studies.
A a detailed study and on-site report is given with every inspection. NJIE gives an ON THE SPOT verbal report. Then a following written report is a detailed professional report by our scientists designed for indoor environmental, mold and air quality home inspections. Many companies use a checklist type inspection and take the checklist back to their office to generate a computer report that is more boilerplate than information. Our investigation, analysis, studies and custom detailed narrative reports can be performed by our associates, university diplomat medical mycologists, aerobiologists, allergists, immunologists, physicians, certified investigators and are generally completed within 12-24 hours *.
* exceptions are for critical medical or legal matters.
