Mold Inspection

A mold inspection is a thorough examination of a property to assess the presence of mold and identify any underlying issues that may contribute to mold growth. During the inspection, the inspector will visually inspect the property for signs of mold, such as visible mold growth, water damage, and moisture issues.

Watch This Video To See What A Mold Inspection Covers

This video will cover what a mold inspections is, what mold testing is, and signs you can look for to spot mold. 1.) A mold inspection is when an inspector walks the exterior and interior of the house for signs of mold. He will use tools to aid him such as a thermal camera and a moisture meter...

How Our Process Works

76ac01410a3d381b99101bf7f9c849dd.jpg

Step 1

Choose locations

On site, you’ll be collecting a control sample from outside.

This reading will be the basis for determining what comes from the home itself and what is already present in the ambient air.

Then you’ll sample at least 2 locations within the home, ideally where dampness or mold is suspected or at risk.

Step 2
Collect The Samples

Set your air sampling pump in the desired location, press the Air-o-Cell or Posi-Track air sample cassette onto the pump, and press the sample button.

When completed, remove the cassette, replace the protective film, and move on to the next location.

Step 3
Ship Your Samples

Once you’re done sampling, place the air sampling cassettes into the FedEx Pak, complete and include a chain of custody form (available in the app or from here) and affix the prepaid return label that we included with your supplies.

Drop it off at the nearest FedEx dropbox and you’re all set! You can expect your report the day after we receive your samples.

Step 5
Report Generation

Step 6
Email You The Report

When we receive your air sample cassettes or surface sample tape/swabs, we remove the glass slide containing the air sample, and digitally scan it using whole slide image scanners that contain powerful microscope lenses.

This produces the digital images that we send to the AI.

Once we have analyzed all of the samples in your job, our system compares the indoor samples with the outdoor sample, and generates a Mold Elevation Level indicator, (or a Mold Growth indicator for surface samples).

We then select several actual images from the sample and include them in the report, along with recommendations for the home owner.

Techniques We Use To Find Mold

Mold inspection and mold testing are two terms that are often used interchangeably, but that isn’t quite right. A mold inspection refers to the visual examination of a property, involving an inspector going through your home and using various equipment to test the air and a variety of surfaces using tools to guide him.

 

Mold testing, on the other hand, happens after an inspection. Some inspectors send samples to a lab and others perform in-house stain tests, though the end results are similar. Mold tests present useful data regarding the type of mold in the home, the toxicity level, the number of spores present in the air and how quickly it’s reproducing.

Professional PDF Reports

The way you present the results of your mold test is just as important as the technology that’s behind it.

Our reports are delivered in PDF format, with visual representations of the quantity of mold, individual counts of mold and air particulates, and even pictures of the actual objects that we’ve found.

  • What are toe-nails, clips, single wraps, and double wraps?
    - Clips: metal connectors that are attached to the roof truss and the wall plate. They are designed to transfer the uplift forces from the roof to the walls during high winds. Clips are typically made of galvanized steel or stainless steel and are available in various sizes, depending on the roof pitch and the spacing of the trusses. The primary advantage of clips is that they are relatively easy to install and are cost-effective. - Single Wraps: Single wraps are metal straps that are wrapped around the truss and secured to the wall plate with nails or bolts. Single wraps are usually made of galvanized steel or stainless steel and are available in various sizes. They are designed to transfer the uplift forces from the roof to the walls during high winds. The primary advantage of single wraps is that they provide a more robust connection than clips, but they are more expensive and challenging to install. - Double Wraps: Double wraps are metal straps that are wrapped around the truss twice and secured to the wall plate with nails or bolts. Double wraps are typically made of galvanized steel or stainless steel and are available in various sizes. They are designed to transfer the uplift forces from the roof to the walls during high winds. The primary advantage of double wraps is that they provide the most robust connection and are typically required for homes in high wind zones. - Toenails: Toenails are nails that are angled at a 45-degree angle and are driven through the roof truss into the wall plate. Toenails are the least effective type of roof-to-wall connector and are typically only used in older homes. They do not provide adequate resistance to uplift forces during high winds and are not recommended for use in new construction. In regards to the wind mitigation form, clips or straps that do not meet the minimum qualifying requirements, are considered “toe-nails.”
  • How often do I need to get a "Wind Mitigation Inspection" for my home insurance?
    Wind mitigation inspections in Florida are valid for five years. Put another way, you pay for the inspection, but it saves you money on your home insurance premium every year for five years.
  • Are their things I can do to increase my savings?
    You can start by adding impact rated windows and doors. This can increase savings up 1% to 5%. Having a new roof with a "SWR" installed can help you save a ton as well. However, theirs not much else you can do besides these 2 things. Everything else would require a complete new roof structure. It's important to get a wind mitigation before you buy a home because of this. Things like roof shape and roof to wall connections can not be changed easy or cheap.
  • What do you mean by "8d and "6d Nails"?
    This just refers to the size of the nails. For example, an 8d nail is better for discounts because they are 2.5 inch in length vs the 6d nail which is 2 inch.
  • What if my home scores bad on this inspection?
    Most people don't file for insurance with a wind mitigation anyways. That's why they pay a lot more then someone who has had one done and applied for those discounts. So if the house does score bad, you would probably be spending the same as you would have before having the inspection done. It never increases what you would pay it can only lower or maintain your price for insurance.
