Tools of the Trade Over the years I have assembled tools that expand on my visual skills. I have listed below a few of the tools I use every day. I am a bit of a tool fanatic and routinely add to my collection. Clients routinely joke that my tool bag is bigger than me.
Air and Surface Sampling
My Zefon Bio Pump pictured at right allows me to assess the current airborne volume of mold spores. Air-o-Cell cassettes are attached to the pump and air is drawn in at 15 liters/minute and mold spores adhere to a sticky slide housed within the cassette.
I am fastidious and scientific in my approach to my work because accuracy is important.

Moisture and Humidity I have several tools, such as the Protimeter Moisture Meter pictured, to detect moisture and humidity problems since identifying and eliminating moisture is an essential first step in correcting a mold problem.
