What is a Mold Inspection?

Once you and your family found or suspected mold growth in your home, you probably turned to the web to figure out how to handle this problem.  From DIY solutions with household products to more extensive professional remediation, a whole range of options have likely turned up, perhaps seeming even more overwhelming than when you started.  There is no doubt that there are a number of ways to approach the dilemma of mold growing in your bathroom, basement, or kitchen.  However, the first step to any of these paths is the same.  You need to evaluate the problem. Figuring out the source and extent of your mold growth is the only way to ensure that you can go on to remove it effectively.

Where to Begin

What is the Mold Inspection Process?

When a professional comes to your home to do a mold inspection, he or she is there to evaluate the extent of the growth, as well as what may have caused it.  Sometimes, the inspection may also include some testing of the molds found or an air quality test to compare indoor mold levels with outdoor mold levels.  With the information gained through the inspection, the mold expert will then work with you to develop an effective plan to resolve the problem.  In some cases, this may require the service of a professional remediation contractor. In this case, the mold expert will prepare and provide you with a report and a scope of work. However, in other cases, they may be able to tell you how to easily clean up and control the growth on your own.
