Identify Probable Areas for Testing

Using visual inspection, JLS ECS will Identify probable areas for testing. We will also will perform a thorough visual inspection of your site or home to determine the most likely areas of contamination.

Identify hidden sources of water intrusion and mold contamination

The destructive testing process is used by our certified mold abatement technicians to access hidden areas where excessive mold growth and contamination is suspected to exist. Destructive testing can be used to find mold growth in reservoirs that have developed above ceilings, underneath floors, and even behind walls.

Construct and set up containment barriers

Our technicians take extra precautions to ensure that the proper barriers are set up to isolate all mold-affected areas. This minimizes the amount of dust created during the course of action, and allows the occupants to stay in unaffected areas of the residence or commercial building during the investigative process. Proper containment of the affected area with barriers helps to safeguard human health.

Develop plan for remediation, abatement, and correction of the construction defect

The destructive testing process is not only used to inspect and locate the source of contamination, but to remove the mold spores and thoroughly clean the affected area as well. Destructive testing is necessary in these instances because simply cleaning the visible mold will not eliminate the problem if it exists beneath the surface of the wall or floor.
