PRINCETON, N.J. -- Lab Results LLC, a full-service indoor air quality improvement company that specializes in mold detection and removal, will conduct canine-assisted mold inspections free of charge for elementary schools, using the Northeast's only certified Mold Dog.
The Mold Dog-assisted inspection is offered, for a limited time and on a first-come, first-served basis, to K-6 schools in New Jersey and the New York and Philadelphia metro areas, free of any monetary charge or obligation. Call (800) 630-9047 for more information.
"Schools in which mold is found would be under no obligation to use Lab Results LLC to assist in its removal," said Jason Earle, founder of Lab Results. "This offer is our way of helping to protect the children in our communities from the health threats of mold, and to introduce the Mold Dog concept."
Oreo, a 1-year-old Labrador mix, is Lab Results LLC's four-legged mold detective. Mold Dogs(R) are the newest and most economical tool in the quest to protect people from the pervasive threat of mold in homes, schools and offices. Mold Dogs can quickly find hidden mold in any building, enabling the growth to be removed efficiently and economically.
Mold, and the toxins it produces, can cause severe health problems, including asthma, allergies, sinusitis, headaches, chronic fatigue, memory loss and even brain damage. Some diseases caused by mold can even be fatal. In modern, airtight buildings, mold can find places to grow more easily than ever before.
Oreo is one of less than two dozen animals in the U.S. certified as Mold Dogs by the Florida Canine Academy, which also trains canine teams for detection of bombs, drugs, money, weapons, termites and accelerants.
"Oreo can tell us precisely where mold hides, behind walls, under floors, in ceilings or wherever it lurks," said Earle. "Knowing where mold hides -- and where it doesn't -- can save thousands of dollars in remediation costs. Finding mold and eliminating it can give you back your peace of mind."
