- A mold inspection is a non-invasive visual examination of a building and includes testing for mold
- The purpose of the mold inspection is to attempt to detect the presence of mold by performing a visual inspection of the property, and collecting samples (both air samples and mold samples initially) to be analyzed by a laboratory.
- The inspection includes searching the home for any possible breaches causing moisture issues to develop which contribute to mold problems, and includes taking moisture readings where warranted to try and pin-point the problem.
- A written report is subsequently provided to the client after the laboratory analysis is completed.
- Mold can exist in inaccessible areas such as behind walls and under carpeting. Mold also grows. The report is only indicative of the presence or absence of mold, and a mold inspection is valid for the date of such inspection.
