Why have a mold inspection? Mold has become one of the largest health concerns in the country. More and more cases have shown it to be either the cause or a contributing factor in may diseases. The primary area where the average person has health effects from mold is in their own home. The average home seller may have even “had” a mold problem and cleaned it themselves. Unfortunately the average user of bleach in a spray bottle will not likely clean the issue to the point where health is not a concern anymore. Your home is a large purchase – and your health is an even greater commodity. So if you are buying a home, be sure to have us perform a full mold inspection of your property.
Our Mold Inspection Process
Our mold inspection is a non-invasive visual examination of the readily accessible, visible, and installed systems and components of the building and including up to 3 samples, lab analysis, and report. Additional samples, if warranted, are additionally priced. The report will include: Identification of moisture intrusion, water damage, musty odors, apparent mold growth, or conditions conducive to mold growth. Results of a laboratory analysis of all mold sampling taken at the building. Customer support from a result analysis providing job resolution questions will also be available.
