Alpha Environmental Diagnostics

Mold is more than a health risk to your family, employees or tenants. It can also jeopardize your investment in a property. Alpha Environmental helps Tampa Bay property owners and buyers minimize this risk by offering mold testing and inspections performed by Mold Assessors who are board-certified and licensed by the state of Florida.

Anyone who performs mold-related services in Florida must be properly licensed, and the company that provides a mold assessment of a structure in Florida must not be the same one that provides mold remediation. Beware of companies that don’t follow these state laws!

Some contractors, mold remediators and home inspectors also offer mold assessments as an add-on service. We are strictly an assessment and consulting firm, specializing in pinpointing the source of your mold or allergen problem and recommending a permanent solution.

Protect your property and the people who live or work there. Call us today for a free phone consultation with a licensed Florida Mold Assessor.

Alpha Environmental serves the Tampa Bay area, including Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando, Polk and Manatee Counties.

There Are No Free Lunches and No Free Mold Inspections

There Are No Free Lunches and No Free Mold Inspections

Your Momma always told you, “There’s no free lunch.” More often than not, free comes with a hefty price that ends up costing far more than you thought it would and that has never been truer than in the mold business. The safest thing consumers can do whenever the word “FREE” is used to sell a mold remediation job is to avoid that contractor all together. Think about it. No business is there to do anything for free. Anyone offering something for free is doing so to sell you something else. While that has become acceptable when it comes to “Buy One – Get One FREE” deals, in the mold business a “free” inspection and testing can end up costing you thousands of dollars for remediation work that may be grossly exaggerated or in some cases doesn’t need to be done at all. The biggest mold scam is remediation contractors who perform “FREE” mold inspections. When it comes to mold, you do NOT want a mold inspector who is motivated to find mold removal jobs for themselves. Your Mold Remediator and Mold Inspector MUST be licensed by the State of Florida. Under the Florida statutes, the Mold Remediator cannot perform Mold Remediation on any job where he or she has performed the Mold Inspection within the last 12 months. This is the oldest mold scam in the mold remediation and restoration industry and it’s easy to pull off because most consumers don’t know enough about mold to realize when they’re being bamboozled into work that is often grossly exaggerated, and in some instances, not even necessary.
