Mold Inspection Services
Mold in the home can sometimes be detected through a telltale musty odor or visible spots, but sometimes mold can be invisible. Mold can hide in air ducts, under paint or beneath carpet. A mold inspection is one of the best ways to determine if you have a mold problem, so you can put your mind at rest or work quickly to address the danger.
Some people can experience allergies and respiratory-type symptoms related to mold. And because mold can grow rapidly, it is very important to address leaks, spills, or areas of persistent moisture, so mold does not have time to develop.
Reason for a Mold Inspection
Mold proliferates in the presence of humidity or water. Here are reasons a homeowner might order a special inspection to search for mold.
- Known water damage from plumbing, appliance, drain or storm
- Previous mold remediation in the home
- Musty odor that is unidentified
- Visible evidence of mold spots
- Purchase of a home
What Is Included During a Mold Inspection?
A mold inspection involves measuring moisture and humidity, visibly looking for mold in areas where mold typically hides, and testing the air for mold spores, which can uncover hidden sources of mold. If your home has had water damage in the past, the inspector will pay special attention to those areas.
