We only do mold inspections and testing, we never do remediation since this will be a conflict of interest.

Post Remediation Clearance Inspection
Post Remediation in nonprofessional's term indicates "after mold has actually been removed." It is additionally called 'clearance assessments' because this process is done to ensure that the mold remediation job was successful.
The test should determine if the containment areas and all the remediated spots are currently safe for individuals to inhabit their property again. When remediation is declared successful, the mold expert team can begin reconstructing the affected areas. However, if the verification outcome is declared not successful, the team should remediate the contained locations again until the end goal has been achieved. Remember that reconstructing it before the release of the verification result will simply increase the threat of cross-contamination.
American Mold Inspections will visually inspect the areas and collect air samples for clearance testing.
