About Your Mold Inspection
During a mold inspection a qualified and certified inspector, with special Certified Mold Inspector training, will take samples (usually 3) and perform a mold screening. This will allow the buyer to know exactly what the condition of the house is. If high levels of mold are found, an inspector can do more precise testing to narrow down the source and turn the data over to an industrial hygienist for remediation.
Total Home Inspection Services LLC offers two different levels of mold inspection: Limited Scope, which is one room and the surrounding area, such as a bathroom and the attic above and crawlspace below; and Whole Home, which includes air sampling from various rooms and a thorough inspection of the grading and drainage around the home, as well as any areas that would be prone to moisture intrusion that could lead to mold growth. It is extremely important to determine the root cause of mold growth within the home, if the conditions leading to mold growth are not corrected before cleaning and remediation, the mold will just keep coming back.
Our fees for mold inspection are inclusive- there are no additional charges for lab fees or surface sampling of any visible organic growth found during the course of an inspection. Total Home Inspection Services LLC does not perform mold remediation, therefore we have nothing to gain by finding mold within your home or by exaggerating the findings from the inspection. Mold is present everywhere, so a proper interpretation and comparison of the samples taken is critical to determine whether you in fact have mold issues within your home or not.
