REASONS TO HIRE A CERTIFIED MOLD INSPECTOR

REPORTS OF WATER DAMAGE, ROOF LEAKS OR PLUMBING PROBLEMS.

Because a house has been prepped for sale, the paint may conceal hidden mold problems. Also, disclosure may be lacking in regards to water damage (e.g., Bank Owned Property). As such, wall cavity sampling around plumbing is a way to detect hidden mold problems. Cavity sampling should be coupled with air sampling to determine if there is a hidden mold problem that is compromising indoor air quality. 


Part of your home-buying process is hiring a home inspector to walk through the home and identify any potential problems before you move in. However, most home inspectors are not skilled at identifying mold problems. Mold can be hidden away in moist areas like underneath baseboards, beneath the carpet, or lurking behind a paint job. Even when a home inspector can identify potential conditions that encourage mold growth, they cannot definitively identify the presence of mold and the type of MOLD that is growing as a mold inspector can. If you are worried about the cost of a mold inspector, remember that if the home has a massive amount of mold when you move in, you may have to immediately move out and sink tens of thousands into repairing the house. 


Our mold inspectors at Home Enviro have the expertise needed to properly conduct MOLD sampling, leak detection, moisture testing, mold inspection, and other condition assessment services at your home. Professional Mold testing and inspection services should only perform by a certified mold inspection company.

The Laser Particle Counter is a useful tool we use to detect mold.

We take the particle counter into an area that we suspect may have a mold problem we can use it to 'screen' the area by taking a count for a set duration in suspect places. By comparing the counts in each area we can identify the area that has the highest concentration of particles. This then becomes the place for the start of an in-depth investigation. This technique can save time by pinpointing likely spots that are contaminated with mold.

Although practically every home has some mold, certain homes just have too much. This is usually the result of previous or ongoing water intrusion. Mold literally feeds on the surfaces it affects, using organic substances found in wood, drywall, and other building materials as a food source.

The basic problem with mold is that it can be hidden. Home inspectors are not mold inspection specialists and do not have the expertise required to identify potential mold issues.

No Conflict of Interest

Mold Investigation - No Conflict of Interest /2010/468.8419

  2. Home Enviro Mold Testing provides all the information you need about choosing the right mold clearance inspection. The mold inspection and mold remediation process is a balancing act of ensuring occupant health & safety and preserving the property value for the owner.
  3. To minimize the chance for a conflict of interest, the mold inspection company should strictly be in the business of mold inspecting, mold assessment, mold testing, and mold consulting. That way, the company has no vested interested in benefiting from the repair that may be necessary through mold remediation. 
  4. We’re not looking for repeat customers. If we’ve done our job correctly, you’ll never need to call us again. We believe every aspect of a mold inspection must work toward a permanent resolution.

Construction Defects

At least a year's worth of seasonal changes is often needed to put a new house to the test. For example, only in summer might you discover that water seeps around window frames, or that you have a mold problem. And guess what: Your homeowners' insurance probably doesn't cover construction defects. You may, therefore, need to assert your rights against the builder, most likely based on the builder's warranty. few examples of the many types of construction defects include: 

  • Significant cracks in the foundation. 
  • Abnormal soil movement causing floor slab unevenness. 
  • Leaky roofs. 
  • Leaky windows. 
  • Faulty plumbing. 
  • Moisture problems from improper drainage or waterproofing. 
  • Bowing or slanting of floors or walls. 

Our Infrared camera (thermal imaging) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows our inspector to show clients things about their new homes or buildings that can’t be revealed using conventional inspection methods. 

post REMEDIATION VERIFICATION

Get a clearance inspection. 

But not from the company who did the work! 

For the purpose of this article, post-abatement, post-remediation, and clearance are synonymous terms. Essentially, it means to check the work after it has been done. As a general rule, owners can solve a mold problem in-house if the total repair cost is $500 or less, and the affected area is less than ten (10) square feet. Otherwise, all post-remediation verification in Florida should be done by a mold inspection company that is licensed and insured. In either case, a clearance inspection should be done to verify the mold has been adequately removed prior to reconstruction. 

It will also satisfy disclosure requirements for buyers in the event of sale or transfer. The clearance inspection will demonstrate your due diligence in having the problem handled properly in the event of a formal complaint or lawsuit. The purpose of a mold clearance inspection is to provide a limited investigation report based on the remediation activity performed at the site by an independent mold remediation contractor. A post-remediation inspection, both visual and analytical, is performed to ensure a return to a pre-mold contaminated environment.
