Abbey Environmental Testing and Services Inc. is a fully certified, fully insured company that performs commercial mold testing. In Rhode Island and Massachusetts. We work with major insurance companies, insurance adjusters, real estate brokers/agents, and commercial property owners.
Commercial mold testing is quite different from residential mold testing in that commercial space has, in most cases, complex HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems. Begin at the source of the air circulation system, if found here many locations within a commercial environment may be contaminated and require testing. Many times the source of a commercial mold contamination involves HVAC condensation of the cooling coils, problems with drain pans and drain flow and result in water and moisture, the number one contributing factor to mold growth. Roofing and drainage are common contributors to mold growth in commercial buildings. Roofing leaks can affect many floors of a commercial building, especially an office building, where drop ceiling panels are the perfect material for mold spore growth. Water from a leak can allow mold to thrive, well before a stain is visible on a panel. Testing in a commercial environment can be extensive and require much building analysis in order to determine where testing should be performed.
There are literally hundreds of thousands of various mold spores and we can identify them all. Our samples are sent to Independent AIHA EMLAP Accredited Laboratories which provide reporting of exactly which molds were encountered through our sampling, along with the spore counts (concentrations) and explanations of every one of them.
In addition to laboratory reporting, Abbey Environmental Testing provides you with our inspection and testing reporting which details inspection observations, relative humidity, and temperature readings and summarizes in plain English the state of your commercial environment and recommendations for improvement, if any.
