How Do Professionals Inspect for Mold?

Our inspections generally take anywhere between two and six hours. We are always thorough and attentive to detail. To ensure we provide our customers with the information they need, we take a 5-step approach. 

These steps include the following:

  1. We start with a visual inspection. An experienced member of our team will look for sources of moisture, water damage, and any other tell-tale indicators of potential mold growth. 
  2. We take additional measures to test for moisture. Using state-of-the-art equipment such as moisture meters or thermal cameras, we go one step beyond our visual inspection to ensure we have located any moist area where mold could grow.
  3. We sample the air near areas where we have located mold, as well as the mold itself. This allows us to determine the variety of mold and its concentration.
  4. At times, we conduct laboratory analyses of the mold or air samples. By doing so, we can make certain we have all the information we need about the extent of the mold problem.
  5. We deliver a report on our findings and make expert recommendations for mold removal and remediation. With these things, our customers can make informed decisions about how to address their mold problems.

    Steps to Take to Prepare for a Mold Inspection 

    To aid the inspection process, there are a few things you ought to do to prepare. We recommend turning off humidifiers, dehumidifiers, and air purification devices for a day before the inspection, as well as shutting your windows and doors up to two days prior. We also recommend turning your HVAC system off a few hours ahead of the appointment. Doing this will help us more accurately locate damp areas and determine the scope of the mold problem.  

    Additionally, you ought to clear the spaces we might inspect, including cabinets, attics, and other out-of-the-way locations. You should also refrain from cleaning areas where you know mold might be. Doing so could increase the amount of airborne mold particles, creating a more hazardous environment for those who spend time inside your property.
