Key Steps in Mold Inspection

Do you suspect there may be mold growing within your Cape Coral home? Whether you’ve only smelled a dank, damp odor in a specific area, or you’ve actually seen black or green stains blossoming on your sheetrock, the first step toward remediation is to have a mold inspection. The right mold remediation company will offer an advanced inspection of your entire home to ensure that you and your family are safe, and that the entirety of the infestation is known. What are the key steps in a mold inspection?

The first step will be to verify that mold is indeed present in your home. This can be done in a number of different ways. A visual inspection will be performed, as will an odor test. If no visible mold can be found, air samples may be taken and then cultured to determine the presence of particular mold spores in the air.

In addition to a visual inspection, the right mold remediation company will also bring advanced technology to bear. For instance, an experienced technician using a moisture meter and a temperature sensitive camera can inspect your entire home and pinpoint areas where moisture is a problem. Mold will be present in any area with enough moisture to support its growth. This gives you the locations that need to be treated. From that point, the next step is to remove the mold, but also to locate and stop the source of moisture so that the mold doesn’t return later.
