Mold Testing

We are ESA and InspectorLab trained and properly insured to perform mold testing. Mold is a natural part of our environment and all homes have mold. Humans and animals could not survive on earth without mold. Mold can become an issue, however, when high spore counts or specific types of molds are found inside a home. That is where we come in. Mold can make some people sick. People can acquire an allergy to mold simply due to exposure, even if they previously had no known allergies.  

Air and/or swab samples can be taken to determine if a specific home or structure has potential issues with mold (even if no mold is visible) or simply help confirm when a client wants a clean bill of health for their new home.

Air sampling determines mold type(s) and spore counts in the home's air. Swab sampling will determine the type(s) of mold found at a specific sampling area where apparent mold is visible, such as on a wall or ceiling covering or even in a basement or attic.

Quick turn-around time is provided by a qualified lab to ensure timely reporting.

Note - WIN Home Inspection also offers Infrared Thermography. So, by having an Infrared Thermography scan and Mold Testing performed, we can better help determine if your new home has potential issues with water infiltration that have possibly lead to mold.

We also provide a Mold Safe Guarantee! This is a guarantee of the accuracy of our mold testing results.

Note - To prevent a potential conflict of interest, WIN Home Inspection does not perform mold removal/remediation services, only mold testing. Should your mold lab report indicate that a mold issue or potential mold issue exists, the services of a qualified mold removal/remediation professional would be warranted.
