Shawn Taylor and Associates understand the importance of protecting your home from such things as mold which can have a harmful effect on the people living in the home. With many types of molds that can grow in your home, it is important to identify if there is mold present if you feel your home, usually, the basement feels moist or damp.

There are some molds that are very detrimental to your health. Most people who suffer severely are usually those with health problems, elderly and infants.
- Our air quality sampling is relatively quick depending on if you have a certain location that's in question. This type of testing can take as little as 20min. The samples are sent to the laboratory, a report is generated and emailed and explained to you with the results.
- Our next method for identifying mold is to perform a thorough mold inspection of your home. This is very similar to a home inspection where we inspect your entire home for mold.
