What Happens During Mold Inspections
For the most part, mold inspections can be as simple as a visual inspection of the house. Oftentimes we do not need special equipment, since we know exactly what to look for and where to look for it. A good flashlight and access to hard to reach places is all many inspections require. For example, a way to remove grates to inspect HVAC ducts. However, we do have the tools and equipment when the job calls for it. Like the use of cameras, so we can see those places we cannot reach. A handy tool is also a moisture meter, which indicates if a particular area is wet.
We begin many mold inspections by simply talking to the property or home owner about any areas where they may have seen mold. Or if water damage or any moisture problems have existed in the past. We will use this information to thoroughly review the premises and check places prone to mold growth. During these inspection, we may discover that mold is growing in an inaccessible space. So we may need to figure a way to maneuver to see inside. This could be an aforementioned duct or we may have to remove a section of drywall or paneling to get a better look.
Once we find mold, we then need to find the origin of the moisture. However, if you can already see the mold, then we do not need to waste time with an inspection. Our team can move right along to the remediation process.
After The Inspection
If the inspection yields no mold then you are in the clear! However, if the inspection finds mold in your home, then the next step is to make a remediation plan. We begin the mold remediation by removing the source of the moisture, which is allowing for the mold growth in the first place. Failing to remove the moisture means the mold will just grow back. So we are thorough in this process.
Harder surfaces can simply be scrubbed and washed. For softer surfaces, like carpets and foam tiles, we likely need to cut them out and replace them. Washing and scrubbing is not very effective for those surfaces. During our remediation and removal, we will work with you to ensure all of the safety protocols are in place and that everything is handled under the EPA guidelines. Mold can be dangerous, so leave it to the professionals to handle!
