What Happens During a Mold Inspection? 

Put simply, the goal of a mold inspection is to find areas in your home where moisture is overabundant and areas where mold has already begun to grow. In this manner, we’re able to stop mold in its tracks and identify areas with a risk for mold growth. 

During the mold inspection, a certified home inspector will examine every area of your home where moisture might be present. These may include walls, ceilings, windows, insulation, basements, crawl spaces, attics, air ducts, vents, and hot water heaters.

For mold that isn’t visible to the naked eye, we utilize the latest in mold technology, including air quality devices, infrared cameras, moisture readers, and thermal imaging. We’ll be testing for water damage, mold spores, visible mold growth, and other signs of moisture damage. 

Once we’ve scrutinized every problem area, we’ll walk you through our findings. While we may be experts in this field, it’s okay if you’re not! We welcome questions, and we’re happy to walk you through the details of our findings.

Julio was excellent!! He did a very thorough inspection and identified some problems we would never have seen but that could have cost us thousands or more to address! Very professional.
