We hope you will call on us to meet the needs you have for mold inspection and mold teasting in your South Pasadena property.
South Pasadena, not to be confused with Pasadena which it was once a part of, is known today as a distinguished float-builder in the annual Tournament of Roses parade. In years past, South Pasadena had the novel distinction of being home to America’s first ostrich farm. It also served as an important trade route for Native Americans, as well as Spanish mission building and colonization. The city’s transportation importance continued to come into play when U.S. Route 66 had its heyday through South Pasadena.
The small South Pasadena Unified School District includes only one high school, but shares a friendly rivalry and history with neighboring San Marino. The city’s beautiful tree-lined streets give it a decidedly non-California feel, which allows it be used as a live set for many films that take place in other parts of the country, such as epic Gone With The Wind. Several famous actors and actresses call the city home. South Pasadena’s small-town idyllic feel, however, only goes so far when it comes to the decades-old controversy about extending Interstate 710 through the city, affecting nearly 1000 homes.
Residents have fought this for years, incurring much in the way of legal fees and putting the city on a list of “Most Endangered Places”. City residents have an obvious sensitivity about air quality and environmental concerns.
It is no wonder that a local company, Indoor-Restore Environmental Services, also shares a commitment to air quality and the environment. Indoor-Restore specializes in indoor environmental health. We ensure that the properties you work, live, or study in are free of mold and other indoor allergens and contaminants. Our company offers thorough mold inspection and mold testing services to the South Pasadena community. We are a nationally accredited company and receive our annual certifications from the Indoor Environmental Association (IEA) and have complete professional certification to perform mold work.
Since mold can be highly toxic, trained and protected technicians, such as ours, are the only ones qualified to handle mold inspection and treatment work.
Our mold inspection services cover you from the very beginning of a suspected mold problem. Trained and certified mold inspection employees come to your South Pasadena property and conduct a complete visual mold inspection. They will look for water leaks and intrusions because mold takes moist, damp conditions to reproduce. The first step of any mold inspection should be to locate these potential water sources, whether hidden or not, and make recommendations for fixes. We use a variety of mold inspection techniques, including Infrared Thermal Imaging and digital monitoring of damp locations. If mold is suspected, our air sampling and surface sampling techniques will discover its presence. Since mold spores travel in an airborne fashion, air sampling will trap any airborne contaminants. Surface sampling detects mold on surfaces. Initial findings are sent to a third-party laboratory for identification and classification. We then return all reports to you, along with our recommended course of action, and completely answer any questions you may have.
