Mold Inspection FAQ
At Ave Today, our team of certified mold inspectors utilize decades of training and experience to provide homes and businesses with unbiased, comprehensive mold inspections. We know you likely have many questions about what our mold inspection process involves. Browse our FAQ below to learn more about what you can expect when you choose Ave Today for your mold inspection needs.
Q: What does your mold inspection process involve?
A: Our certified inspectors conduct a thorough visual examination, use moisture meters, take air/surface samples for lab analysis, use thermal imaging to find moisture, and provide a detailed report.
Q: How do you test for mold that isn’t visible?
A: We use techniques like air sampling, surface sampling, thermal imaging cameras, and moisture meters to detect hidden mold that may be lurking out of sight within walls or HVAC systems.
Q: What types of samples do you collect during a mold inspection?
A: We collect air samples to test overall air quality along with swab and tape samples of visible mold growths to identify specific mold species present.
Q: How long does a typical residential mold inspection take?
A: For a single-family home, expect the on-site inspection to take approximately 2-4 hours depending on the size of the home. The full process including the detailed report takes 2-3 days.
Q: Do your inspectors inspect inside walls or under materials?
A: We conduct a non-invasive inspection without removing materials or making holes. Our specialized tools allow us to look inside walls and identify issues without damaging the property.
Q: Will your inspection identify all mold in my home?
A: We thoroughly inspect all accessible areas but can’t guarantee we will find 100% of mold present. Follow-up assessments after remediation can help identify completeness.
Q: Do you provide estimates for remediation too?
A: Our assessments focus solely on identifying mold issues. We can refer you to trusted local remediation companies to provide remediation estimates.
Q: What information is included in your inspection report?
A: Our reports contain a full description of findings, lab results, moisture readings, thermal imaging, recommendations for remediation, and documentation like photographs.
Q: Do your technicians wear protective gear during inspections?
A: Yes, our technicians always wear appropriate PPE like gloves, respirators, goggles, and protective clothing to avoid spreading mold.
Q: Can I be present during the inspection?
A: We advise homeowners to avoid exposure during the inspection itself, but we are happy to fully explain our process and findings afterward.
Q: What areas of my home will you inspect?
A: Our inspection covers all accessible areas including walls, floors, ceilings, attics, crawlspaces, basements, HVAC systems, plumbing, windows, and more. We inspect the entire home.
Q: How soon can mold inspections happen?
A: We strive to schedule inspections quickly, often within 24-48 hours of your call. The first step is contacting us to start the process.
