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.
