MOLD INSPECTION: $185
Unchecked mold indoors can damage the structure of a home, cause wood rot, and ruin drywall. Most importantly, mold can cause health problems. A professional mold test starts with a thorough inspection of your property. I will investigate any signs of past or present water intrusion, which can promote mold growth, and I’ll take samples of any suspected mold for laboratory analysis.
- The key to mold control is moisture control.
- If mold is a problem in your home, you should clean up the mold promptly and fix the water problem.
- It is important to dry water-damaged areas and items within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth.
I am Certified to use IMS Laboratory Lift Tape Mold Analysis Strips. With these test strips I can pick up a sample of suspected mold and send it to the IMS Laboratory for analysis. Usually within 48 hours, results are reported. This way, I can discover if it actually is mold and what kind. You don't have to use this service unless I discover something suspicious during a Home Inspection.
