Any suspicious area should be looked at by a trained and experienced mold inspector. They will be able to take a mold test on site to confirm the presence of mold. They will also be able to inspect the affected area with a thermal imaging camera and measure moisture levels in order to find hidden moisture problems. (Remember, moisture is the main cause of mold!) With all of this information, you will receive a detailed inspection report and, if needed, a scope of work and estimate for remediation.

Common Mold Inspection FAQ’s

What are the signs that I need a mold inspection?

Have you noticed that you’re having difficulties breathing properly, perhaps the sensation that it’s more of a chore to do so? Or, are you frequently getting sick and developing congestion issues? These are common symptoms associated with several species of mold. The fungus often thrives in moist or unsanitary environments, so getting a professional inspection arranged is a proactive step to take. Some species of mold can be highly toxic or even lethal if not addressed in the short term, so don’t put your health and safety at risk when it can be avoided!

Who do you call for mold inspection?

Our in-house inspectors deliver solid findings and results you can trust, harnessing well over 15 years of dedicated mold busting experience. We also offer comprehensive testing and removal services, ensuring you get the complete mold elimination package through one expert team. During such times when it’s hard to secure a contractor, having an all-in-one option provides you with more value and peace of mind, not to mention quicker process completion. Virtual assessments are also available upon request.

Are older properties more likely to hide mold?

Yes, especially if old brickwork or stonework is incorporated into the construction, as deep crevices can form in the foundation that will allow moisture to seep in over time. This is where mold will fester and spread, and it can be difficult to detect other than the smell and illness-associated symptoms. If you’re ever unsure, always reach out to a dedicated and experienced professional for mold identification and detection services.

How long do mold inspections take?

This depends on the complexity and severity of the mold outbreak in question. Typical inspections take up to 1 hour a day, while if there are multiple species or risk elements present, we may need to carry out follow-up inspections (though these are rare). If you can see mold as it is, then we can get started on testing and removal, inspecting along the way to identify the presence of any more areas where it may be thriving. This is especially important in time-sensitive situations such as when trying to remove dangerous species such as black or white mold.

How much is mold inspection?

This largely depends on a number of factors, namely the size of your property, the complexity of the layout and/or situation at hand, and other variables. For further information and to work out a quote that aligns with your budget, feel free to get in touch with our dedicated team today. We’re happy to help in any way we can! Virtual assessments are also available if required.
