Mold exposure is a reality of life, but the extent to which one is exposed can vary greatly depending on environmental circumstances. If you are buying a new home or have had recent flooding, roof damage, condensation, or any symptoms of mold exposure, it may be a good idea to have a mold inspection.
A mold inspection generally costs hundreds of dollars, whereas mold remediation can easily cost thousands; so, finding a problem before it gets out of hand can save a lot of money and the headache of a huge mold remediation project.
A mold inspection can be preferable to mold testing. Many types of mold spores come into buildings from outside, but are not actually growing inside. Therefore, mold testing will give a long list of species, but may offer limited usefulness. A mold inspection will actually quantify the extent of any mold problem and thus may be a better option in most cases.
A visual check of areas prone to mold growth by a trained professional can uncover problems without the need for expensive equipment or testing. If a problem is found, the inspector will look for a source of moisture that is causing the problem. Addressing the cause of the problem will make it less likely that mold will continue to grow.
