What Does a Mold Inspector Look For?

If you suspect there’s mold in your home, call an inspector to come and check the places you might not think of.

If you’re worried about mold in your home or have reason to believe you have a mold problem after water damage, you may want to have a mold inspector visit your home. A mold inspector is a trained professional that knows where, and how, to look for mold in your home. This is an important step in water damage remediation, and another box to check on the list of things necessary to getting your home back to normal after water damage.

Is There Mold

Obviously, a mold inspector will be looking to see if there is mold in your home. If you’ve recently experienced water damage to your home, they’ll check the areas that were most affected before moving on to areas that are less likely but could still possibly have been damaged. The inspector will check not just on different surfaces in your home, but also behind your walls and in places like crawl spaces. If mold is found, it’s important to act fast since mold is notorious for spreading very quickly.

Was There Mold

If you’ve previously had mold, let the inspector know so they can check the area. There may be a water leak or other problems exposing your home to moisture that was not taken care of when your previous mold problem was addressed. An inspector will be able to examine the area and determine where any water damage may still be coming from, as well as checking to see the mold has returned with the undiagnosed water leak. Things like leaking pipes, improper lawn drainage, or even air conditioning units that aren’t draining properly can lead to mold without the homeowner being aware there is a problem.
