Health Problems-In your home, all molds have the potential to cause side effects:

How does mold impact you, your family, your home?

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), mold has the potential to cause health issues, including headaches, breathing difficulties, skin irritation, allergic reactions and aggravation of asthma symptoms. Additionally, mold can cause structural damage to your home, potentially resulting in significant repairs and lowered value. That’s why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stated that any mold must be removed, no matter the type.

.Introducing InstaScope. Instant results. Scientific precision.

InstaScope is a new airborne mold–assessment system only available from select ServiceMaster® brands that immediately delivers scientifically accurate, room-by-room results. Using InstaScope, a certified operator can instantly differentiate between rooms with normal airborne mold levels that need no treatment, rooms with elevated airborne mold levels which may require a simple cleaning by a mitigation professional and rooms with higher airborne mold levels and an active mold source that may require targeted remediation. The quicker you know the results of a mold inspection, the sooner you can start taking action to address the problem.

What’s the science behind InstaScope?

To create a state-of-the-art instrument like InstaScope, we needed a partner with the high-tech resume to make it truly revolutionary. That’s when ServiceMaster Restore joined forces with Droplet Measurement Technologies (DMT), the world leader in cutting-edge technology for measurement of aerosol and cloud particles. DMT serves a broad range of institutions, from Harvard University and The University of Tokyo to GE and Boeing all the way to the United States military and NASA.

Once InstaScope was created, we engaged a team of scientists at the University of Colorado. Led by Dr. Mark Hernandez, an internationally recognized expert on the biological aspects of air pollution, this team was assigned to validate and test the new technology. Needless to say, it passed with flying colors. Together, we were able to create a new mold–assessment system for commercial customers that, unlike any other method or device, can deliver scientifically accurate, area-by-area results—and do so instantly.
