Below are the key reasons why it is important to order a mold inspection:

Health Concerns: Mold exposure can lead to serious health problems, especially for people with allergies or respiratory conditions. Some symptoms of mold exposure include coughing, sneezing, headaches, and runny nose. In severe cases, mold exposure can cause asthma and other respiratory problems.
Structural Damage: Mold can cause structural damage to your home if it is not addressed in a timely manner. Mold can cause wood rot, which can weaken the structure of your home. This can lead to costly repairs and, in some cases, make your home uninhabitable.
Save Money: Ordering a mold inspection can save you money in the long run. If mold is found and addressed early, you can avoid costly repairs and prevent health problems. On the other hand, if mold is left unaddressed, it can grow and spread, leading to more extensive damage and higher costs.
Professional Assessment: Mold inspectors are trained and certified professionals who can identify mold and determine the source of the problem. They can also provide recommendations on how to address the mold, which can save you time and money.
Peace of Mind: Knowing that your home is mold-free can give you peace of mind. You and your family can live in your home without worrying about the potential health effects of mold exposure.
Property Value: A mold-free home is more valuable and can command a higher price when you go to sell it. This is because potential buyers know that they are not inheriting a costly mold problem.
Legal Obligations: As a homeowner, you have a legal obligation to maintain a safe and healthy living environment. If you rent out your home, you also have a legal obligation to disclose any mold problems to potential renters.

If you suspect that you have a mold problem in your residence, it is important to have it inspected by a professional. Our certified inspectors will be able to help assess the situation and help to recommend the appropriate course of action to remove the mold and prevent it from returning.


What Is Included In A Mold Inspection?

Home Pro Mold inspections include a visual assessment of the areas of concern and use of tools such as an on-site Air Particle test, thermal imaging, and moisture / humidity readings to help provide site specific recommendations and estimates. Our certified inspectors will look for visual signs of mold growth, such as discoloration on walls or ceilings, musty odors, and water stains. 

In some cases, mold testing is needed to properly identify the type of mold present and recommend the best course of action to remove the mold. If mold testing is recommended, our inspectors will advise you of what is needed prior to taking any samples. Sampling includes 3rd party certified laboratory analysis and results.

Air Particle Test

An air particle monitor is a device that measures the quantity and size of particles suspended in the air. It is commonly used to measure the concentration of dust, smoke, pollen, and other particles in the air. The device can also be used to monitor air quality inside your residence or commercial building.

Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging for water intrusion is a method of detecting and locating the presence of water in buildings and other structures using infrared technology. Infrared cameras are used to create thermal images that can reveal areas where water has entered, even if it is not visible to the naked eye. This technology can be used to detect leaks, moisture, and other forms of water damage, and can also be used to locate sources of water intrusion, such as cracks in walls or roofs. Thermal imaging is a non-destructive and non-invasive method of detecting water damage, making it a useful tool for building inspections and maintenance.

Moisture Readings

A moisture meter is a device that is used to measure the moisture content in materials, such as wood, drywall, and concrete. Moisture meters work by using electrical resistance, capacitance, or other methods to determine the amount of moisture in the material. Moisture meters are commonly used in construction, woodworking, and home inspection. They can be used to detect moisture in walls, floors, and ceilings, to check for leaks and water damage, and to identify potential mold growth.
