WHAT DO INDOOR ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH BASED INVESTIGATIONS COST?
FREE CLINICAL CONSULTATIONS FOR PHYSICIANS AND INITIAL FOR ATTORNEYS
What is your health worth? Our investigations are clinically and evidence based. Considering that you get what is paid for and the clear dangers that many fungi pose to occupants of their habitations it is alarming that nothing less than a fully qualified investigation be conducted by qualified scientists. We have had numerous clients that were suffering from severe allergic type responses, mold infection or with with mold related diseases (mycoses) before they called us to investigate. Bacteria are also highly noted where clinically relevant- you should hear what we see when it comes to bacteria in your home such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Some required medical treatment, surgery and others were in a much more grave condition. When you or your family's health is involved nothing less than a fully qualified scientific investigation should be considered with relevant clinical differentials. Review your condition with your physician and ask if such an investigation may be of benefit to you. You are also free to request one on your own.
We regret that we have to say that many people call just price shopping and we will tell you that too many call us back after they paid for totally unqualified inspections by inspectors, environmental hygienist, CIH and others that did not even know they were unqualified. As well motivated regular home inspectors are they have absolutely no business doing mold sampling when there is a health question- their sampling is meaningless without any clinical relevancy. These inspectors do nothing but random sampling using the "best labs" proving or demonstrating nothing material. These people send us their reports for analysis and then for one of our investigations and reports. Investigations relating to fungal mold and human health are highly complex but we understand the various mechanisms that are the cause of mold related disease. Talk to us - our skills, academics, related clinical science integrations and experience for these practices are unmatched.
There are no reasonably lower rates for a lawfully qualified and competent health and property damage related mold investigation. Our scientists do no frivolous, random or guess testing and waste no time (complete written reports in 6 - 24 - 48 hours-longer for genomics) in quickly identifying the issues, risks related to and the cause of fungal mold that may be of concern for human health or property damage. Depending on the type (health, property damage, insurance, litigation or home/sale inspection).
When our investigations involve medical cases as in mycoses, toxicosis, infection or disease such clients and/or their physicians will be provided qualified clinical guidance when such is indicated as a result of our study.
OUR PROFESSIONAL FEES ARE BASED UPON TIME AND REQUIRED TESTING
There are minimal testing requirements for a full scientific fungal mold presence study but you determine the extent of the inspection depending on your immediate needs and concerns. Your free phone consultation will help you understand what needs to be done for a competent inspection, analysis and resulting report. If this is an important investigation/inspection for you, then there are few that can lawfully perform it. None are near or match our Qualifications scientifically, technically or legally. Mold removal, remediation and repair costs are directly related to the extent of damage and is dependent on time and materials (We have no bias or competing interest since we do no repairs or remediation - we will give you names of qualified/competent companies that do so only if asked).

WHAT FACTORS DETERMINE THE COSTS FOR INSPECTION AND CLEANUP?
NOTE: WE DO NO RMEDIATION, OFFER NONE AND ONLY PROVIDE HIGH QUALITY REFRALS UPON REQUEST
TYPES OF INVESTIGATIONS/INSPECTIONS AVAILABLE
1. LIMITED HOME MOLD : We offer a limited inspection of areas of interest or concern based upon your observations or a home inspection report. Often mold is concentrated in the attic, bathrooms, kitchens and basements or limited to carpet, walls, ceiling or floor. We do routinely recommend that the entire property be investigated since mold does travel through a home typically from lower levels to upper levels via convection. Upper levels to lower levels tend to be common from upper leaks from baths and roofs.2. TOTAL HOME INDOOR ENVIRONMENT HEALTH RISK INVESTIGATION : Total inspection of all areas, structure with complete clinical risk assessments. This study and report will identify the mold, its cause and reported affects on both the property and potential threat to human health. Includes, lead, electro-magnetic radiation, water quality, indoor air quality, toxic/noxious gas and a broad range of relevant airborne particles and biologicals. See our details page.
3.CLINICAL: With our fully qualified medical certification we provide your health care professional a clinical lead to your condition. Upon medical recommendation for sampling for airborne allergens or mold presence by health care professionals including allergists, immunologist or other. See our qualifications.
4. HEALTH RISK ASSESSMENT: We will investigate your habitation for the presence of irritant, allergens, pathogens and airborne biologicals. Electromagnetic radiation (EMF/EMR) is also available.
5. FULL INDOOR AIR QUALITY - Air/Gas presence analysis. Many odorless toxic/potentially deadly gasses may be present. Full indoor air quality health risk assessment. There are other factors within human habitations that are causative factors affecting human health - we will identify these with our full IAQ study.
6. POST REMEDIATION/REPAIRS: Validation of efficacy of IAQ and remediation. After all the mold has been removed and abated and IAQ issues have been addressed we will perform testing to determine and validate that the property has been restored to a healthy and safe state. Often conditions are more hazardous after remediation due other toxic substances used during remediation or due to failed or lack of containment, control and related best practices resulting in increased contamination-demand qualified and competent remediation when so required.
7. SECOND OPINIONS: As with any professional service and practice with varying degrees of qualified education, proficiency and expertise will result in such variety of analysis. In 95% of our 2nd OPINIONS we have discovered false positive, false negatives and totally flawed sampling methodologies, completely flawed studies, meaningless and random sampling (mold spore counting is nearly worthless) , erroneous analysis or lacking in findings relevant and material to such investigations that affect human health and/or property value.
If the inspection you require is important do yourself a favor - Get it complete and right the first time.
8. INSURANCE REPORTS - We are fully qualified to provide reports that are acceptable by all insurance companies. In most cases you must demonstrate to the insurance company that you in fact have a bona fide mold problem certified by a professional mycologist.
Use qualified scientists to study a possible problem. When it comes to matters of considerable financial or health concern our practices exceed all standards. You may have more or less of a problem than first indicated in the initial inspection or studies. If you feel that your you recent inspection is lacking or wanting additional analysis obtain our second opinion with complete confidence with legal certification and standing. Have your attorney contact us.
9. FRAUD INVESTIGATION - We see it over and over again - fraudulent sales and services taking tens of thousands of dollars from people . We are state trained in legal investigation - we have zero tolerance for fraud (personal-recent family member so taken) and we will assist you and the state in their prosecution. If you have been sold property where mold damage was knowingly or intentionally concealed you must have it documented to protect your claim. Call your attorney then you or they contact us immediately if that is the case. In forensic matters the standard for investigation/inspection is much higher than a simple mold inspection and for such our legal support is unmatched at no added cost to your legal counsel.
10. WE DO NO REMEDIATION - IT IS A CONFLICT TO DO SO- Property damage assessment. Our investigations will determine the cause and the extent of mold infestation and presence. We will tell you what the most cost effective method and protocols to be used in performing a remediation (eliminating the cause) and abatement (minimizing or getting rid of the mold the presence).

PROFESSIONAL CONSULTATIONS AT FEE AVAILABLE - EXCEPTIONS***
If you are a Industrial Hygienist (IH) as a certified specialist or other otherwise certified or so practicing in the industry of hygiene and wish some additional training (you may be eligible for free training or additional certification) or consultation from one of our *CC-EH™ (Certified Clinical Environemtal Hygienists (no association with the ABIH or their CIH certification scheme) including medical doctors, microbiologists, aerobiologists, pathologists (both clinical and research), allergologists, toxicologists) please schedule/call for a professional to professional real-time consultation-fees may apply. (Avail in US, UK & EU)
*** No fee for investigations, testing, sampling and report. For clinical research purposes we may offer a scientific research association for select clinical research and medical cases of interest for post-docs and MD. No or reduced fee for special matters / pro bono publico.
Contact our scientists for additional guidance or questions at:
One of the MAJOR problems contributing to public confusion and misunderstanding of the true risks fungal molds pose is the fact the legal and medical professions clearly recognize that the majority of these investigations are performed by those clearly not qualified. Be cautious of these type of inspections and reports:
BEWARE OF AND AVOID : the NON-REPORT REPORT....... *What is a NON-REPORT REPORT?
Learn to recognize UNQUALIFIED INSPECTIONS - Many home mold inspectors and repair contractors are doing mold testing and have no qualifications (we are board certified in medical mycology, and experienced scientists performing indoor environmental investigations and remediation planning) in doing so and totally failing the scientific method with wrong testing, wrong sampling and random testing, with false positives, false negatives, inconclusive and downright erroneous or nonexistent analysis (recently we were asked to review report where 66 (SIXTY SIX) samples were taken with a report that concluded nothing!) This requires additional testing (often calling us to do follow-up testing) with resulting in delayed or failed property transfers, unneeded expense, litigation, continuing health injury and severe distress to buyers, sellers, owners, tenants and for whomever the results were delivered to. Make sure you get it right the first time. * In the Non-Report Report Random samples are collected that are then sent to some unknown lab and the lab sends you their data or their "report" that is meaningless since the lab has no idea what the purpose of or the methodology for sampling but yet in some of these reports health and medical claims are made based upon their counts and identification outside of any meaningful context. Can you imagine your physician taking a blood sample, sends it to a lab and the lab sends you the results and makes a diagnosis and prescribes treatment? - there is no difference.
A trained and experienced professional must collect, analyze and the interpret the results for you based upon a complete study and put the sampling in its proper context answering all the questions you may have. A recent "specialist" charged $2500.00 and provided the client a 50 plus page template - canned type report indicating every known mold was present in vague amounts yet did not state the source of problem or causative factors for which the "specialist" was called. One of our scientists for a fraction of that amount and within 10 minuets identified the problem (undetected by both inspectors and client/owner) and its cause allowing the property to be quickly restored to its healthy state at no cost to the owner.
SUCH A QUALIFIED AND COMPETENT REPORT COSTS (IN SOME CASES OUR STUDIES ARE 80% LOWER, supra) LESS SINCE THE TESTING IS TARGETED AND FOCUSED:
You only pay the analysis you need*. Our range of services include:
FOR INSPECTIONS: The dominating factors include size of areas inspected. Time spent inspecting. Testing required. Lab services required. Type and extent of report: clinical report for physician's diagnostic purposes, insurance report, legal report or expert opinion.
* as determined by mycologist/aerobiologist/toxicologist
1. Each inspection plan is determined by YOU the client depending what YOUR needs are, site requirements, total area under assessment, current level of contamination and other risk potentials present. Flat fee, hourly and per diem services available.
2. Some molds can be cleaned by the property owner. In some cases we will tell you in writing when and how any healthy person may clean or remove low levels of a contaminant type of mold presence after our testing, study, analysis and report.
3. If you have received an estimate for major repair or reconstruction due to a mold presence you may wish to obtain a second opinion. We have discovered through experience that in many cases all that is needed is a prescribed treatment for the type of mold infecting the property instead of costly replacement or repairs. It is not unlike when one gets a skin rash or topical infection on your arm or leg- you do not need to sacrifice an arm or leg - it may only require treatment based upon study. If there is NO MAJOR structural damage, you may only need a treatment. Only an experienced inspector can tell.

**5 Special Discounts. We give discounts to schools and not for profit organizations and others please ask. For residential homes, if you are a first time home buyer or retiree please let us know at the time you call. We may give you up to a 10% reduction in fees.
WE INSPECT AND PROVIDE ANALYSIS We will not sell you anything - no new roof, no plumbing, no replacing leaky furnaces, cleaning ducts, no waterproofing basements or anything else. That is for the obvious reasons - it is clearly a conflict that gives rise to many of the problems we see with repair contractors that are doing these inspections. BUT if you ask we will give you a list of service providers that may be of help when needed. *AVOID CONFLICTING / COMPETING INTERESTS: DO NOT TO USE A HOME REPAIR CONTRACTOR THAT DOES MOLD OR HOME INSPECTIONS. LICENSCED INSPECTORS ARE NOT PERMITTED BY LAW TO DO REPAIRS IN NEW JERSEY.
