implication of fungal contamination of indoor air has become an
issue of increasing concern. Awareness of the effects of mold on
building occupants has increased with reports of illnesses
attributed to mold contaminated buildings. There are many questions

Management Services, Inc. (EMSI) provides various support services
related to the evaluation and identification of mold contamination,
remediation consultation. Our capabilities include substrate and
airborne mold sampling.
Our approach is to
identify the underlying causes of the mold contamination and to
develop methodology for preventing its regrowth. Environmental
sampling may be used in the investigation and remediation phases of
the project, but it is not always a standard element of an
investigation. When needed, we use a variety of sampling methods and
instrumentation to quantify the concentration and/or to determine
which species are present. We will work with the client to develop
remediation protocols and specifications, and monitor the
remediation contractor's activities for compliance with protocols
and specifications. Our goal is to resolve the contamination/growth
problem in as little time and expense as possible.
