Mold Inspection and Testing
Find out If Dangerous Mold Is Present in Your Home
If you suspect you have mold in your home, it’s important that you have a mold inspection and test from HomeTeam Inspection Service to find out for sure. Many homeowners believe that mold is easy to spot. Though in some cases mold can be found in places like ceilings and walls or can be detected due to its musty odor, many times it is not visible to the eye.
Putting off a mold inspection can cause health issues. Get in touch with an inspector in your area.
How Mold Testing Can Help
Mold inspection and testing is a process used to identify the presence of mold in a home or business. It is important to identify the presence of mold so that it can be removed and the air quality improved. Mold testing and inspection can also help to determine the type of mold present, which can help in determining the potential health risks associated with the mold.
Testing involves a visual inspection of the area, followed by the use of specialized equipment to detect the presence of mold spores. Samples of the air or surfaces may also be taken and analyzed in a laboratory to identify the type of mold present.
Air quality testing is also important in determining the presence of mold. The air quality test can measure the levels of mold spores in the air, as well as the levels of other pollutants such as dust, pollen, and pet dander. The results of the air quality test can help determine the need for mold removal, as well as the type of remediation needed.
Often, mold can be found underneath wallpaper and baseboards, behind walls, or may discolor drywall or plaster. It can even be found inside heating and cooling system ducts. A thorough inspection and mold test is the best way to determine if your home has mold spores.
Finding Mold in Your Home
If our team finds mold after a home mold inspection, we’ll conduct a swab or air test to identify which kind of mold it is. We’ll collect a sample of these molds and send you a report from the EPA-certified lab that will identify the type of mold and the level. This report is both comprehensive and easy to read.
If you find mold in your home, it’s important that you don’t try to remove it yourself. Touching or even breathing in the mold spores can be detrimental to your health, so instead reach out to our team and we’ll take the appropriate actions to determine what it is.

How important is a mold inspection?
Mold inspection is an essential aspect of maintaining both the health of the occupants and the integrity of the building structure. Mold produces allergens and irritants that can lead to respiratory problems and allergic reactions. Additionally, over time, it can degrade building materials, weakening the structural integrity of the home. An inspection helps identify these risks early, allowing for timely remediation and preventing potentially costly damages.
Unaddressed mold issues can also significantly reduce a property's value, affecting real estate transactions. Adhering to local regulations or disclosure requirements related to mold is important, and an inspection can help ensure compliance, reducing potential legal liabilities.
Whether purchasing a new home, concerned about existing mold growth, or maintaining a healthy living environment, an inspection by professionals like those at HomeTeam Inspection Service provides valuable insights and peace of mind. It's a proactive step towards a healthy and comfortable living space.
