Fire Investigation

Fire Cause & Origin Forensic Investigation

A Cause & Origin Forensic investigation is conducted at the loss site to determine the location of fire origin and the ignition source. When appropriate, sampling is performed for preservation and analysis.

Evidence, awaiting further examination, is properly labeled, tagged and secured. Samples collected are archived for future use and are not disposed of until written consent is provided.

The Full Forensic Investigation includes fire scene analysis, cause & origin determination, scene photography, evidence preservation, record searches, and interviews of individuals who may have pertinent information regarding the loss. This investigation is tailored to the individual situation and will provide the most comprehensive picture of the loss and surrounding circumstances.

ACM will provide all necessary technical staff, equipment, sample analysis, and generate a comprehensive forensic report in a cost-effective and timely manner.

A written report will be issued that includes the following:

  • Site Visit to Observe Current Conditions
  • Interviews with Involved Parties
  • Ascertain the Nature of the Fire
  • Accidental vs. Arson Indicators
  • Presence, Distribution and Identity of Accelerants
  • Material Sampling and Analysis
  • Photographic Documentation

Microbial

Microbial Services

Microbial Contamination

Catastrophic water or moisture damage and improper building construction or repairs can often trap moisture on the surface of, within or behind walls, ceilings, flooring or ductwork, creating a breeding ground for potentially toxic mold. Unless this moisture is addressed in a thorough and timely manner, even new buildings can become a hazardous environment. Various types of mold have been suspected of causing medical problems such as; allergic reactions, respiratory tract irritation, hypersensitivity, yeast infections and aspergillosis. Mold can also damage furnishings, destroy wood, drywall, sheet rock, carpeting, insulation materials, etc. and compromise the structural integrity of a building.

Inspection / Assessment

ACM performs an in-depth inspection to identify and sample areas of possible mold contamination. We also obtain air and surface samples for mold identification and quantification. ACM's inspection teams use specialized, state of the art equipment to view and access areas such as elevator shafts, ductwork, airshafts and voids behind walls, ceilings or raised floors, to locate hidden contamination. All inspectors adhere to The State of Texas regulations concerning mold assessments.

Project Design, Remediation Protocol, Clearances & Management Services

ACM has proven that no mold project design and/or management remediation project is too large or small for us to undertake. Our expertise and skills ensure that microbial contamination remediation will be controlled in a safe and cost effective manner that minimizes damage to a facility and its occupants. ACM brings innovative techniques and large forces of experienced staff to design and manage remediation projects. All ACM Remediation Protocols comply with The State of Texas regulatory requirements for mold remediation design and clearance.

Other Services

Cost Reduction

ACM has been providing critical environmental and cost reduction services for schools, medical facilities, and hotels/lodging facilities throughout the country. Below are some of the services ACM provides.

Moisture Testing and Visible Mold Identification of New Construction and Remodeling Projects Prior to the Expiration of Warranties.

Construction deficiencies in building materials and workmanship would be corrected while warranties and guaranties are still in effect. A six to twelve month latency period usually exists from the completion of a project to the point when water intrusions and visible mold growth are identified. This program will limit expenditures for unnecessary maintenance expenses and remodeling to correct original construction deficiencies.

Moisture Testing and Visible Mold Identification of Existing Facilities

This service will assist each school, medical and hotel/lodging facility in addressing potential moisture and mold source within the facility. Recommendations will be developed to address environmental conditions in a safe and cost effective manner.
