What is Done During a Mold Inspection?
Mold can exist, and affect the health of the occupants, even if it is not visible.
Our inspector will provide an onsite non-invasive visual inspection of the property. Upon request, or at the inspectors suggestion if mold is suspected, air samples will be taken from both the exterior and interior of the home, as well as temperature and humidity readings. If visible mold exists, additional air sampling and mold samples will be taken for analysis.
Invasive inspections are performed with prior written consent only. If non-visible mold is suspected, an invasive inspection will be performed to gain access to the affected area. This can include, but is not limited to, carpet samples or wall penetration. The degree to which invasive inspections are performed will vary greatly due to specific circumstances at each inspection.
Mold can grow within 48 hours, and while a Mold Inspection will provide information on whether or not mold exists at the time of the inspection, it is not a guarantee that mold will or will not exist in the future after the inspection has been completed.
Please Contact Us to shcedule an inspection or if you have any questions.
What Information is Provided After the Inspection?
Air and mold samples are provided to an independent, third party, laboratory for analysis. The results of this analysis are sent to the inspector and then provided to the client along with digital pictures of the inspection and a brochure from the EPA containing information regarding mold and moisture.
