Trusted Mold Testing Service in New York City
Four out of five homes contain at least one environmental hazard that can affect your health. We’re the professionals who can help you do something about it. RTK specializes in testing for mold and assessing indoor air quality, both important in New York City.
New York City Mold Testing & Inspection Service: No Conflict of Interest
For more than 25 years, commercial property managers, businesses, homeowners, management companies, insurance adjusters, real estate professionals, and others throughout New York City including the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and Manhattan, have relied on RTK Environmental Group for all of their mold testing and mold inspection needs.
Because RTK Environmental Group business is limited to only testing and consulting – not remediation – you can be confident our assessment will be accurate and unbiased. If we find a mold problem, it will be up to you to hire a separate remediation firm. Then, we’ll return to make sure the job was done right, and tell you how to avoid problems in the future. New York State law prohibits the same company from testing for mold and conducting mold remediation on the same job.
RTK Environmental Group serves the five boroughs and greater New York City metro area, and leads the field of environmental testing and consulting. Company professionals are certified, licensed, and fully insured.
Using state-of-the-art technology and adhering to the latest standards and strict NYC and NYS codes and rules, our inspectors will thoroughly examine your property – the physical structure and indoor air – for the presence of mold.
Strict Adherence to New York’s Mold Testing Laws
RTK mold inspectors are licensed and certified by New York State per the 2016 Mold Program law, responsible for enforcing Article 32 of the New York State Labor Law, which requires separate companies to perform mold inspection and mold remediation on a single job, saving consumers thousands. The law also requires mold inspectors and contractors to attend certification classes and be licensed by the State. This ensures that your RTK inspector is fully knowledgeable about mold.
Mindful of Mold & Your Health
Mold spores, when inhaled, can cause serious health issues, including asthma, chronic allergies, headaches, fatigue, skin rashes, throat and eye irritations, wheezing, and many respiratory problems. When mold is disturbed, it can release spores into the air to seed new colonies, causing cross contamination. Mold can be caused by any number of water- or moisture-related issues, including ice dams, roof leaks, basement flooding, burst pipes, poor drainage, and high humidity. Often, mold hides behind walls and ceilings, so unless you test for mold, you may not know that a problem exists.
Finding Toxic Black Mold in New York City and Surrounding areas
You may see signs of black mold on your walls, near sinks and toilets, along floorboards and on ceilings. Black mold may look frightening – and it is pretty unsightly – but it’s not necessarily toxic. It is, however, an allergen and health hazard. While toxic mold can bring on the most serious health problems, all mold can cause health issues in healthy people – especially those who suffer allergies.
The only way to find out if mold is toxic is to have it tested. Toxic black mold can grow in any building, so to be safe and to protect your family, hire a professional to locate and identify the mold in your home or business.
