    Inspection & Testing Certifications

    Certifications and/or Associations

    Basic home inspections are no substitute for specialized environmental hazard testing. General home inspectors evaluate the visible areas of structures, but may not provide a complete picture of the property. Any number of materials can affect indoor air quality, and it’s important to be aware of environmental hazards that can affect your home and more importantly, the health of your family.

    Geno Swick of B4 Home Group is ACAC Board Certified in Mold Inspection. Unlike most of the certificates held by other companies, this is a nationally recognized and respected certification. The Federal government has created the Unified Facilities Guide Specifications (USGS 02 85 00.00 20 Mold Remediation)(page 5). The specification requires that a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) or ACAC certificant conduct the mold assessment on mold remediation contracts.

    Certified Compliant from MIAQ (Mold & Indoor Air Quality Board of Professional Ethics)

    Mold and Indoor Air Quality is a highly specialized science and a very Under-Regulated Industry. Certified Inspectors, Assessors and Testers by MIAQ meet the highest requirements of ethical and scientific standards. Only those proven to understand and practice scientific and industry standards meet the strict requirements of their Board. There is a difference in providing you with the accurate and properly conducted testing and assessments and having a “semi –qualified “ assessment. MIAQ certification assures will get you the thorough and accurate information that you need. B4 Inspections is the ONLY MIAQ Certified Mold Inspector in the Nashville area.
