Things to know before you get started.
6 Reasons to Hire a Mold Inspector
  1. 1. Pinpoint mold types

    Toxic species of mold are greenish-black, grow in moist conditions, and emit a very distinct, musty odor. Your inspector has the knowledge to determine how dangerous an infestation is.

  2. 2. Find mold when damage occurs

    If your home has suffered from any water damage, your inspector will check for any obvious signs of mold growth on or beneath walls, carpets and furniture.

  3. 3. Test air quality

    If a dank, musty smell persists in your home, a mold inspector can test your home’s air quality for evidence of black mold and recommend any remediation.

  4. 4. Provide in-depth knowledge

    Don’t hire a renovation company to check for mold. Instead, hire a company whose sole job is to inspect and test for mold. This way, you don’t risk receiving skewed results.

  5. 5. Provide a clear explanation

    When the inspection is over sure you receive a two-part document comprising the lab results and inspection report. The inspector should provide a clear interpretation of the results.

  6. 6. Get a timeframe

    Prepare for the remediation process to be timely and expensive, depending on the size of the infestation. This process includes area containment and removal of airborne spores.
