ENVIRONMENTAL / MOLD INSPECTIONS

Accurate Building Inspection Services, Inc. has performed thousands of building and mold related assessments over the years. This field experience combined with the technical training I continue to received in order to meet the Continuing Education requirements as a CIE (Certified Indoor Environmentalist) with the ACAC (American Indoor Air Quality) as well as the state of Florida requirements along with active participation in the IAQA (Indoor Air Quality Association) annual seminars and the AIEH (Accredited Indoor Environmental Hygienist) accreditation, is substantial.

Additional training also includes meeting the requirements of FABI (Florida Association of Building Inspectors) as an RPI (Registered Professional Inspector) as well as the NAHI (National Association of Home Inspectors) CRI (Certified Real Estate Inspector) designations with over 30 additional educational credit hours per year.

I have held the Chief Maintenance Building Engineers position at Apartment Buildings and Condominiums in Florida and New York and have served as a consultant to numerous Condominium Boards, Commercial Property and Facility owners regarding Environmental and Mold issues, facility maintenance projects, and have performed thousands of Commercial, Residential, ASTM E2018-01 PCA inspections and Environmental Assessments for Insurance Companies, Mortgage Companies, Lending Institutions, Attorneys, Individuals and Corporate property owners, as well as the United States Government (US NAVY) at the Key West Naval Air Station facilities after Hurricane Katrina.

Additional industry related involvements include an Adjunct Instructors position at Miami Dade College teaching Mold Remediation as well as peer review for the ANSI IICRC S-520-2008 (Standard & Reference Guide for Professional Remediation) which all contribute to my ability to provide reliable and thorough investigations, assessment reports, remediation protocols and or quality control assistance for both large or small environmental projects.
