A mold inspection is a visual inspection limited to the readily accessible areas of the building, components, and systems. This includes the grounds, exterior, structure, plumbing, interior, HVAC, and sampling suspected mold.
The purpose of a mold inspection is to detect the presence of suspected mold growth in the inspected areas of the subject property. The mold inspection report communicates the information to you through a written summary that describes the suspected microbial growth along with property conditions that could contribute to microbial growth. Additionally, the report may include results of laboratory testing on suspected mold samples taken from the structure during the inspection.
The worst enemy of a structure is water, and it is far less expensive to prevent water damage than to repair it. One of the main goals of a mold inspection is to determine areas where water may enter the home that may lead to mold and structural damage. When you order a mold inspection, you are taking a proactive step towards protecting the structural integrity of your home, and the health and well-being of your family.
