Mold Inspection

Mold Inspection Process:

1. Visual Inspection

We start with a complete visual assessment of the interior and exterior of the property to identify any existing conditions.

3. Thermal Imaging

We use an infrared camera to detect temperature differences in (and often behind) building materials. With this information, your inspector will be able to map out moisture patterns and trace the moisture source.

5. Airborne Mold Testing

Our mold inspector will collect air samples to determine if indoor mold spore levels are higher than they should be.

7. Inner Wall Mold Testing

When mold is suspected behind a wall or above a ceiling, those areas should be tested. Today’s mold testing technologies and techniques allow mold inspectors to take air and surface samples from wall or ceiling voids without causing unnecessary damage to the property.

9. Scope of Work

Upon request, your mold inspector will design a mold remediation plan specific to your property. Your scope of work will include cleanup suggestions as well as preventative measures that are necessary to keep mold from returning.

2. Digital Documentation

We take pictures of all the areas of concern so you can see the outcome of your mold inspection.

4. Moisture Meter Testing

Moisture meter testing allows us to locate building materials that are damp or wet enough to support mold growth and locate where water damage starts and stops. Testing for moisture also helps us determine if water leaks have been resolved or if they are actively leaking.

6. Surface Mold Testing

Surface testing with mold swabs or bio tape lifts will determine if it’s a water stain or mold. In many cases, surface testing isn’t necessary if mold growth is visibly obvious.

8. Mold Inspection Summary Report

The mold inspector compiles all of the findings and information gathered, then provides a detailed discussion of the mold testing lab report

10. Clearance Testing (Post Remediation Verification Testing)

This inspection is conducted following a mold remediation to check for quality assurance. Once the mold has been removed, it is important to know that the job was done right—the first time. PRV Testing will determine if cleanup efforts were successful or if further cleanup is necessary.
