Many of the most severe indoor health threats are the hardest to find. But after investigating health hazards and conducting expert mold assessments in over 5,000 homes and workplaces, the Microecologies team knows what to look for, where to look for it, how to test for it, why it’s happening, and how to eliminate it.

We stand apart from other investigators because we put the health of our clients above all other considerations. We have the knowledge, credentials, and experience to understand the associations between our clients’ exposure to indoor environmental contaminants and their health complaints. That’s why many of New York’s leading allergists and pulmonologists recommend referring their patients to us when water damage or a mold problem is potentially causing asthma, sinusitis, rhinitis, allergy, or chronic fatigue symptoms.

Our experience and proven track record have made us metro New York’s preferred investigative team – we were even voted “Best of New York” by New York Magazine. Leading attorneys call us in as expert witnesses in mold cases. Property managers rely on our expert mold testing and lead-based paint assessments before proceeding with a mold removal or lead paint abatement project. Co-op Boards engage us to identify and solve secondhand cigarette smoke exposure and odor complaints.
