Mold Inspection Basics

What is a mold inspection?  This really is a bit harder to define than you would think because in reality clients have many different concerns with respect to mold and a good inspector will taylor the services to meet the clients request in an effort to answer the most critical question as cost efficiently as possible.  A well planned mold inspection will include the following:

  • A client interview to discuss building history (if available), active concerns, and deliverables (what information do you want me to deliver)
  • A thorough visual inspection for mold and moisture related concerns in the area(s) of concern
  • A thorough moisture inspection using best available Infrared Technology and moisture meters
  • If warranted, a sampling strategy which may include Bio Reveal Surface Sampling or Spore Trap Analysis
