MOLD IS REALLY GOOD AT HIDING!

Since mold occurs naturally in our environment, its presence in your home or business may not pose a threat. But since mold, mildew and other indoor environmental impurities can be dangerous at high concentrations or even at low concentrations for people or pets with unusually high sensitivity it’s important to consult Home Enviro professional mold inspector if you suspect a mold-related problem.
Trust the Mold Inspector on Mold, Not the Home Inspector
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.
WHAT IS MOLD TESTING? HOW IS MOLD TESTING PERFORMED?
Broadly speaking, most mold testing involves taking a sample of either the air or a surface. Essentially, a mold inspector "tests" the air or surface to find out what kind of mold exists and/or if the mold found is able to grow in the area tested.
After the mold samples arrive at the mold testing laboratory, there are many ways to analyze these mold samples. The most common methods involve transferring relevant sections (or all) of the submitted mold sample onto a glass microscope slide, adding a stain that mold spores can absorb, and then evaluating the sample for evidence of mold growth.
We perform professional, industry-standard mold inspections using only Professional Certified Licensed Florida Mold Assessor.

The most common method uses a "spore trap" and is called a "spore trap sample." Spore traps work by having a known volume of air pass impact a sticky surface as it passes through the spore trap sampling device. Most of the particles in the air also impact this sticky surface and consequently adhere to, and are captured on, this sticky surface. Mold spores comprise a subset of these 'particles in the air' and also are captured on the sticky medium inside the spore trap.
Surface samples can be taken in a variety of ways. The three most common methods are:
A piece of the sampled area is physically removed and sent to the mold testing laboratory,
Something akin to a cotton swab is rubbed across the area being sampled, often a measured area, and subsequently sent to the mold testing laboratory, and
A piece of clear tape is pressed against and removed from the area being sampled, presumably picking up and removing part of any mold that was present on the surface, and then set to the mold testing laboratory for analysis.

Sometimes it’s impossible to see a potential leak. Whether it’s in a pipe behind a wall or a pipe that’s clearly visible, any potential sources of water intrusion must be examined frequently. A routine thermography inspection can give you images of areas where moisture is present by examining temperature differences. It’s impossible to see or feel these spots without infrared equipment so having a professional run a survey periodically will help prevent major water intrusion. Water intrusion can happen in any building, no matter how well it is maintained. As buildings get older, their materials start to wear down and slowly allow water to enter where it shouldn’t. Before you have to deal with the headache that comes with major water intrusion.
When visible mold is not present, but the smell of mold is. Here a mold inspection and mold testing can reveal whether there is indeed elevated mold, and where it is located.
Infrared (thermal imaging) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to show clients things about their homes or buildings that can’t be revealed using conventional inspection methods.
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.
