Do you think mold might be growing somewhere

in your home? If so, then it's time you should have a mold inspection performed.

Goals of a Mold Inspection

There are two goals of a mold inspection. The first is to find if and where mold is growing in your home. The second is to find the water problem which caused the mold to grow in the first place.

Why You Should Have A Mold Inspection?

The obvious reason to have a mold inspection is if you think you have a mold problem in your home. Even if you already know where mold is growing in your home it is a good idea to perform a mold inspection since visible mold growth often means there is more mold growing somewhere out of view.

Signs of Mold

Some common reasons to suspect you could have a mold problem include:

  • You are suffering allergic symptoms

  • You notice a mold smell

  • You have had a water problem, for example: flooding, leaking pipes or a leaking roof

Why should I hire a Professional Mold Inspector?

It's always best to hire a certified professional mold inspector, such as myself, to do the mold inspection and testing for you. Thanks to my years of training and experience, I can inspect and test the proper areas where mold most often hides and discern what should and should not be sampled whereas your average home owner marketed do-it-yourself test kit relies heavily on "mold" that can be plainly seen leaving the majority of the problem areas untested. Also, most non-professionals do not know that there is always some level of mold present in most residential and commercial properties; it is in the knowing how and where to look and the identifying of the harmful and toxic varieties that make the mold inspection and testing performed by a certified professional so important (not to mention that professional mold inspectors use specialty equipment unavailable to the do-it-yourselfer like moisture meters, IAQ pumps and fiber optics to aid us during the inspecitons to find that hidden mold without damaging the walls.)
