Atlanta Mold Inspection & Testing

As you already notice a home is not just somewhere you live, it is also a large investment; for most the largest one they will make in their life. Atlanta Testing may be advocated if our inspector notes visible mold, excess moisture or water intrusion. If a property has heavy levels of mold that require professional restoration, that can most certainly change the appraisal of the house. The good news is that each of our inspectors are experts in the field and equipped to carry out sampling so you will not have to pay even more money for a additional inspector to come out and carry out a accessory inspection.

This service is especially attractive for those looking at foreclosures and homes that have been uninhabited for extended periods of time. While this service is usable to all clients, it is generally only advocated when a red flag is raised. A visual Atlanta mold inspection is included on every all-inclusive home inspection. Without testing, these is no way to know the levels of mold at a residence. Many customers feel that paying a little extra cost is well worth knowing they are not buying someone else’s dilemma; even if the inspector does not see any visible issues.
Mold spores are everywhere, we inhale these spores on a daily basis and generally it is nothing to worry about. Nevertheless, when a problem is present within a dwelling the amount of nontoxic spores can cause complications for people’s health. Indoor growth can also create the presence of other toxic species of mold like Stachybotrys; which is not acceptable at any level inside a house.

Our Atlanta mold testing procedure is as follows. First we take one air sample as a control to set a baseline for what is to be accepted inside a home in the area. It’s then compared to the place of biggest concern or a general living area if there are not any visible problems found. Additional tests may be advocated to help confirm a source of a problem, or see if other areas of the home have been affected. Additional samples can be had at $75 each. Every situation is different and there is really no way of know how many will be advocated but ordinarily it is 2-4 total.

After these mold tests are taken on site, they are sent to an separate AIHA accredited laboratory for study. Here they will test not only what species of mold is present but also quantities of each. You will be sent a copy of the lab findings and explanation of results will be combined with  your home inspection report. Customers that do have excess levels of mold will be provided a procedure for mold removal steps to be carried our by a licensed mold remediation company.
