Do you offer mold inspections

Q. I am buying or selling a home in San Diego and my home inspector recommended a mold inspection. Do you offer this service?

A. YES. Please call our office TODAY at 888-373-9243 for pricing and availability. There are two ways to try and locate an unseen issue. Our moisture meters can detect elevated moisture levels behind walls, which may indicate a source (such as a plumbing leak or exterior water intrusion). Even though our moisture meters cannot detect mold itself, mold requires constant moisture to cultivate, and therefore finding moisture is a good place to start. We can then perform an “invasive inspection”, where our technicians cut small holes in the wall at the most likely source points, and perform a visual inspection or insert a borescope (thin flexible camera) to try and visually locate mold growth.

The only way to definitively know if you have a mold problem without cutting into walls is to have a laboratory collect air samples to submit for laboratory analysis. If you think you might have a mold problem that is currently unseen, but would like to avoid inspection holes cut in your walls, contact our office at 888-373-9243 for an air testing laboratory recommendation.
