Mold/ Air Quality Testing
A mold inspection will check for the presence of mold /mold spores in a home. The first step is a visual inspection for signs of mold and water damage. The visual inspection comes standard with every home inspection. However, a client can order more invasive testing if they wish. Mold/Air Quality testing is an invasive mold test where samples of the air and various surfaces will be taken throughout the home to determine the volume and type of mold spores in a home. The samples will be sent to a nationally accredited lab for analysis and reporting.
If your property was built prior to 1980, and you are planning a remodel, complete renovation and/or demolition, it is crucial to err on the side of caution, and test for asbestos. Asbestos exposure can cause significant health problems such as Mesothelioma. Our inspector will take samples of potential asbestos containing material, and will send them off to a lab that is nationally accredited by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for analysis and reporting.
