In most cases, finding indoor mold growth may not be easy. Investigating for hidden mold can be exceedingly difficult. It requires a professional with experience in inspecting for water and moisture problems.
InterNACHI Certified Home Inspectors are trained to locate and identify moisture intrusion, condensation, and humidity problems. Certified home inspectors are trained in building science, which is required to investigate moisture intrusion and conditions conducive to mold growth. My training as a Home Inspector compliments my training as a Mold Inspector very well. My knowledge and educational requirements as a certified and licensed home inspector allows me the tools needed to best serve my clients.
I utilize thermography, thermo-hygrometer, moisture detection devices, air sampling pumps, and other modern technologies to assist me in my Mold Inspections. I take at least two samples, provide the lab results of those samples, and issue a report of our findings. Additional samples may be taken as needed.
A mold inspection is intended to eliminate the uncertainty and the risk of the presence of mold or the adverse effects that mold may cause to a building or its occupants. As a member of the International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants I am specially trained to perform mold inspections and I offer two types of inspections, both of which are non-invasive.
All mold inspection pricing include 2 air samples (1 control and 1 inside the home), a copy of the lab results, and a report of our findings. If more than one area of concern is located, if we determine a second control sample should be analyzed, or if we observe apparent biological growth, we may take additional samples at an additional cost. Our samples are collected in accordance with IAC2 standards and are lab analyzed. These are not off-the-shelf test at home kits – we are certified, trained, use professional equipment, and certified laboratories to analyze our specimens.
Prices are for up to 2,000 square feet, single-family homes. Please contact us for additional pricing for larger homes or multi-family units.
