Bye Bye Mold™
Bye Bye Mold™, California’s premier mold inspection service has a long history. The company evolved from Toxic Litigation Consulting, which, for many years, investigated toxic cases nationwide for one of the law firms depicted in the movie, Erin Brockovich. In 2001, when an escalating number of mold sufferers turned to us for help, our team underwent the extensive training essential for mold testing to became part of our repertoire. Demand for the mold inspection service was substantial enough for the division to stand on its own, and Bye Bye Mold™ was born, a wing of dedicated mold inspection professionals. The department was incorporated as a separate entity from Evaluair, Toxic Consulting and our Toxic Team. Today, Bye Bye Mold™ offers mold inspection services, as well as providing advice about prevention of mold infestation.
In 2002 we handled hundreds of mold assessments of apartments, condominiums, homes and businesses, and we have been busy ever since. This tremendous field experience is what establishes, enhances and augments our expertise. Each job we handle is referred to as an investigation. Just as with our very big toxic cases, we handle even our smallest investigation with the same care and attention to detail.
Our visit starts with a visual inspection of every room; then we take moisture readings throughout. Many companies only moisture test the areas where they collect samples; but we know that moisture readings can reveal hidden problems.
We check under sinks and in all areas where we know mold likes to be, including attics and crawl spaces. We photographically record where each sample is collected and all suspect areas. Temperature and Humidity readings are logged throughout the property.
Our testing methods are constantly being updated to include the newest, most efficient technologies, including air testing with state of the art micro-pumps, the universally well-known Aero-Cell Cassette, and thermal imaging. We have a device that will test within the wall cavity after a small intrusion is made in the wall, and can use thermal imaging which does not require intrusion. We include direct samples where we bag a sample (drywall, carpeting, etc…) and ship it to the laboratory for analysis. Sometimes it is necessary to take a swab, tape or carpet sample using a vacuum with a special lab-provided specimen cassette designed to trap mold and dust. ALL samples are collected under Chain of Custody and shipped by Fedex to Aerotech Laboratories in Phoenix, Arizona. Thanks to the efficient lab, our turn-around time is 3 days from date we collect the sample, unless we catch a weekend.
We offer a mold directory and mold experts, an on-site mold guide, mold health advice, our mold hotline. On this site, you can arrange mold inspections by one of our professional mold inspectors.

Why Test For Mold?
Mold and fungus are biological organisms that are present almost everywhere, but will tend to grow in moist environments. They may release spores, toxins, and particulate dust into the atmosphere. These materials can produce allergic symptoms in humans, and even illness. Typical symptoms include; runny nose, eye irritation, fatigue, and respiratory ailments such as cough, chest tightness, congestion, and aggravation of asthma symptoms. These symptoms may be produced by mold species such as Stachybotrys, Aspergillus, Penicillium, Fusarium, Trichoderma and Memnoniella.
Research at Lund University in Sweden reported that 67% of molds tested contained at least one mold toxin, far more than earlier estimated. Mycotoxins not only kill cells but also affect immune cells in a way that increases the risk of allergies. This study would suggest then that wherever this is visible mold, there is a significant likelihood that mold toxins are also present. These extremely small particles can enter the lungs more easily than the mold spores that are the general focus of study. We do have a library of journaled research available on site.
The presence of mold or fungus does not necessarily mean that all people in the area will exhibit immediate health effects. This depends on the release of fungal materials into the air, and the individual susceptibility of the persons exposed.
If mold is on a wall the chances are it is airborne. If it is not airborne it is not probably not going to harm you until it is. It’s a good idea to test the air in the area where there appears to be mold growth. The fact the smear on a wall is black does not mean it is mold. We take a sample and send to the lab for analysis. However, it is a good assumption that it is mold. My inspectors know when to recommend air sampling.
