  1. Assessment - To determine if mold is present.  Class Services will start by visually examining the premises. This helps determine the level of remediation that is necessary and whether sampling is necessary.  This may include moving furniture, lifting and'or removing carpet, checking behind wallpaper or paneling, checking in ventilation duct work, opening or exposing wall cavities, etc.  We focus our efforts on signs of moisture or where moisture is suspected.  
  2. Sampling - Conducted when an occupant of the space is symptomatic.  Before sampling we determine what action can or should a person take upon taking obtaining data,   When sampling is necessary it should be performed by a trained professional (IEP) who has specific experience in designing mold sampling protocols, sampling, methods, and the interpretation of findings.  Air sampling following remediation is usually the best way to ascertain efficacy of remediation, when conducted by a qualified third party.
  3. Remediation - Our first step is to identify and stop the source of moisture.  Determine level of safety and protection for occupants and remediation workers.  Set containment and proper negative air to prevent cross contamination throughout home or building.  Clean-up and removal - We remove or clean contaminated materials which may include dry brushing or agitation, dry ice blasting, HEPA vacuuming, damp wiping of all non-porous surfaces, applying an encapsulate and disposal of debris and damaged materials. 
  4. Evaluation of mold exposure - A check of all air ducts, ventilation systems and air handling units is performed to ensue that mold problems do not persist in the indoor environment.

Molds are found everywhere inside and outside, can grow on almost any substance when moisture is present.  Molds reproduce by spores, which can be carried by air currents.  When these spores are on a moist surface that is suitable for life, they begin to grow. Mold is normally found indoors at levels that do not affect most health individuals.  

Because common building materials are capable of sustaining mold growth, mold growth in an indoor environment is typically related to water or moisture indoors.  Mold growth may also be caused by incomplete drying of flooring materials such as concrete.  Flooding, surface and ground water leaks, leaky roofs, condensation problems, stagnant water in appliances, building maintenance problems, or indoor plumbing problems can lead to mold growth inside.

For significant mold growth to occur, there must be a source of water, moisture and or humidity, a source of food, and a substrate capable of sustaining growth. Common building materials, such as plywood, drywall, insulation, furring strips, carpets, and carpet padding are food for molds.  In carpet, invisible dust, dust mites and cellulose are the food sources.  After a single incident of water damage occurs in a home or building, molds grow inside walls and then become dormant until a subsequent incident of high humidity; this illustrates how mold can appear to be a sudden problem, long after a previous flood or water incident that did not produce such a problem.  The right conditions reactivate mold.

Studies also show that mycotoxin levels are higher in buildings that have once had a water incident.
