A visual inspection is an initial step in identifying mold problems and possible contamination issues. During the process, water leaks, and moisture stains within the house will be identified. Air conditioning, heating systems, and crawl spaces will also receive inspection. Visual inspection in combination with air, tape, and swab sampling will ensure the inspector will be able to determine the source of the contamination problem and remediate it.

There are literally thousands of types of mold in the environment. The good news is that over the centuries, molds have helped produce some wonderful inventions such as penicillin, breads, cheese, and particular alcoholic beverages. The bad news is that molds reproduce by sending out spores. These spores activate and grow when they land on a moist spot.
This mold then grows more spores and so on. The mold spreads and spreads. Outside this is not necessarily a bad situation because mold is part of the natural process of decay. It is part of the reason that leaves that missed the fall raking will have deteriorated into soil by spring. However, when mold intrudes into a home due to an existing moisture problem, it can get ugly.
Mold when left unremediated, can produce a strong musty smell, have a furry appearance, and be mushy in texture. Not an attractive sight.
Air Sampling - Mold Inspection
The purpose of air sampling is to determine the type and amount of airborne contaminants present. Air sampling is performed when the presence of mold is suspect, due to musty odors and allergies but cannot be determined through the visual inspection. Air sampling is performed on both the indoor and outdoor air for a comparison to determine where problems exist or originate. The indoor sample is taken when the AC or heating systems are in operation to ensure an effective and accurate test.
Tape/Swab Sampling - Mold Inspection
Tape/swab samples are typically collected from visually moldy areas of an interior area using a sterile swab. This type of test is done to determine the type of mold infestation.Contact • Mold Inspection
