Do You Need a Mold Inspection?

Do you need a Mold Inspection?

We are going to tell you something right away about mold inspections and mold testing that is going to make 99% of all other mold companies and mold inspectors squirm.

If you already see visible mold, you usually do NOT need a mold inspection or mold testing. If you already see visible mold, you simply need to remove it. Once you see visible mold, testing is usually unnecessary and a waste of money.

When should a mold inspection or mold testing be considered?

  1. When visible mold is not present, but the smell of mold is present. Here a mold inspection and mold test can reveal whether there is indeed elevated mold, and where it is located.
  2. There have been plumbing leaks or water issues and there is a suspicion that elevated mold may exist in the air and/or behind walls.
  3. Post Mold Removal Clearance Testing to ensure that the previous mold issues has been resolved and mold counts have returned to levels found in normal environments of the same type.
  4. Health Concerns: In some cases a doctor or the patient has a health issue that they cannot pinpoint the cause but seems to be related to mold symptoms (coughing, sneezing, headaches, etc). Here, a mold inspection and test may help to confirm whether the doctor’s or patient’s suspicions that a mold problem exists.
  5. For real estate transactions for the protection of Buyers and Sellers.
  6. Landlord/Tenant disputes as to whether there is a mold problem.
  7. Someone thinks they see or smell mold but are not sure.
  8. Someone is interested in a general Indoor Air Quality test of their environment.
