Mold Inspection and Testing

Mold Inspection

A visual inspection determines if advanced mold tests are required. Mold must have moisture to grow so first step is determining if there is a current water leak, or if areas are still wet and need to be dried to prevent mold growth. A site evaluation will be needed.

Mold Removal Cleanup

Mold Removal

If mold is caught early you can prevent further damage but action needs to be taken quickly to mitigation the situation. Our certified techs will go to work quickly to clean up the affected areas and work to keep the mold spores from becoming airborne.


Mold Remediation

Mold remediation is removing the materials that have been damaged by mold and need to be replaced. Most often this can be carpet, padding, wood flooring, drywall or cabinets. Our goal is to restore your home to pre-loss condition as quickly as possible.

Final Mold Inspection Clearance Test

New Innovative Technology finds Hidden Moisture

We solve the problem of over 95% of structures being left wet enough for microbial mold growth. If a contractor dried your home and you now smell mold, we can help.

The SOLUTION: Small electronic sensors that can easily penetrate deep into the wall to detect moisture content in the wall framing and insulation. Interior wall assemblies are 5 1/2″ inches, and our sensors can reach 3 1/2″. Traditional moisture detection meters only detect moisture at 1/2″.

David Sweet COO NextGen Restoration

As a consultant, I train companies nationwide in the industry standards and how to properly dry structures. The terrifying truth is that most companies are simply not drying structures completely. While well intentioned, most restoration contractors do not have the tools necessary to find all the hidden moisture and resulting mold and contamination.

Our system has been designed from the ground up to provide a third-party validated, transparently reported accounting of everything that’s on the job so that nothing is left hidden on the project to harm you or your loved ones. Armed with the truth, we are willing to fight alongside you, to get the necessary work performed (as required by IICRC S500 & S520 industry standards) and the resulting bill honored by the insurance carrier.

Common Questions about Mold

How Much Will Mold Remediation Cost?

Because every mold remediation job is different, our experts need to talk with you and get an idea of how large of an area might be affected and what caused the mold initially. Once we learn a little more about the situation, you can order a mold inspection if needed. We can even provide a comprehensive estimate and work plan for an additional fee, which will be applied to the project if NextGen’s services are utilized.

Do I need mold testing if I can see it?

You won’t need testing to prove you have mold, but you need testing to confirm where the mold has spread, and what it has affected so a detailed scope of work can be written that includes not only all the damage to the building, but also the contents.

What if I can’t see mold, but it smells?

If you can smell mold it is actively reproducing and it’s time to get a professional on the project. Often times paint and other materials will mask the presence of mold, this is when sampling becomes necessary. Sampling can also determine the type of mold that is present.

Recent Water Damage and Mold

If you’ve recently had water damage and were told it was dry, but now you it smells musty, chances are your assemblies and material are still wet. It takes on average 7 to 15 days to dry most structures. We specialize in this type of mold issues.

Is mold dangerous to my health?

There are many different types of mold. Some aren’t dangerous, while others lead to chronic and severe health conditions. Stachybotrys for example, is also called “toxic mold” because it produces mycotoxins that cause severe health problems.

What are the first signs of mold?

If you think you have mold the first sign is a musty odor, peeling or bulging paint, gray, green or black patches and is often seen on ceilings, walls, or flooring. Mold usually grows in places such as under the carpet, behind walls, in attics and even in the bathroom.

Can I use bleach to clean up mold?

Bleach won’t kill mold, it can only make it unable to reproduce. It leaves behind all the toxic components behind that can be inhaled and affect your health.  Never use bleach on wood, carpet, drywall, etc., in an attempt to kill mold, you can cause additional damage.
