Albany Mold Inspection & Testing
One of most commonly used add on services in Albany is Mold Inspection & Testing. For many of our potential clients, the fact that our inspector can provide air quality testing if it is recommended is the determining factor in who they choose. You see other inspectors may note “potential mold growth” but they cannot give a definitive answer on whether or not there is a problem. This means you have to hire a specialist to come in and perform and Albany mold inspection. That means more time and money. There is an additional fee for this service but it will be about half the price of having to bring in a third party mold inspector. Indoor air quality problems caused by mold can cost thousands to fix, so indoor mold growth is not something that should be taken lightly.
An inside vs. outside air comparison is taken to see what species of mold are present and how much of it. We can also take surface samples and in-wall air samples to help confirm the source of a problem. All of these mold tests are sent to an AIHA accredited laboratory. The lab results will ultimately tell us whether or not there are elevated levels of mold present. From this our inspector will give a definitive answer of what if anything needs to be done in terms of professional mold remediation in order to return the home to normal.
Indoor mold problems can be covered up temporarily in terms of visibility. However, our Albany mold test will show the state of the indoor air quality even if someone is trying to hide it. That is why this service is so popular, especially in foreclosed and vacant properties as these types of problems are very common in those situations.
