Florida is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. The warm weather is great for many reasons - but there is an unfortunate downside as well. The warm weather that we enjoy is also one of the reasons we have mold issues here in Central Florida. Here in Orlando, it is a constant battle. So what should you do if you think that you have a mold issue? Well, it is best to start out with a mold inspection or assessment. But what is the difference?
Orlando Mold Inspections
A mold "inspection" is primarily to see if there is a mold issue present in a home or business, and is primarily for discovery purposes. Our mold inspections are thorough and detailed, but we also make our mold inspection reports easy to read. Many people ask us what is included in our mold inspections. While there are no two mold inspections that are the same, we want to help you get a basic idea of how we perform our mold inspections. These parameters apply to both residential and commercial properties.
What is a Mold Assessment?
A mold inspection is performed by a qualified mold assessor, such as us, We are Florida State licensed mold assessors. The purpose of a mold assessment is not only to discover and inspect any mold or conditions conducive to mold in a home or other type of building, but also to identify the cause, work out what needs to be done to correct it, and even work with the remediation process to make sure it is done properly.
Important Things You Need to Know About Mold Inspections
Mold inspections should be performed by a qualified mold inspector/tester who has had specific training and notable experience in the mold field. Training and experience are necessary, as mold is a serious health hazard and should be handled only by the most qualified professionals.
Mold inspections are initially non-invasive, which means we do not do any destructive testing. We look for evidence of past or present organic growth. Once something has been discovered, we can start to get into the issue more seriously – finding the water source, seeing if it was a continuous issue or a one-time occurrence, and other factors. If the situation calls for it, and the client has thought about it thoroughly and given permission, intrusive testing may be done to fully inspect the issue.
