Mold Inspection in Miami-Dade County

Many Miami homeowners handle collecting their own mold samples because it is less expensive than hiring a professional mold inspector, however, it is extremely unlikely that you won’t be able to get samples from all the hidden places where mold can grow. Mold inspection is a lengthy, technical process, and only trained and certified inspectors can locate infestations with certainty. Our team of Miami mold inspectors are up-to-date on established regulatory guidelines and effective practices for finding mold that hides within walls, attics, and basements.

When should I get a mold inspection?

If you’re selling your home, you’re legally required to conduct a mold inspection and provide results to potential buyers. If you’ve already undergone remediation, periodic evaluations by professional mold inspectors in Miami will help protect that investment, and create a paper trail of effective treatment. If you bought a home as-is, knowing it has an existing mold issue, we can target problem areas, protect your health, and save time and money. Because mold exposure can create a wide range of immediate and long-term health effects, you need to eliminate it as quickly as possible to avoid chronic ailments for you, your family, and even your pets.

Mold Inspection in South Florida

South Florida’s humidity and warmth unfortunately give mold a good place to spread. Homeowners who don’t know they have mold can attribute health symptoms to other causes such as seasonal or pet allergies, or a common cold or sinus infection. This mistake happens because symptoms for all are essentially the same. And because mold often grows in places you can’t see it (inside walls, crawl spaces, heating/cooling ducts, under the floor), many people can feel sick for a long time before finding out the actual reason. That’s why it’s important to hire professional mold inspectors to check your home regularly.

The only way spores can become mold is if they land on a moist surface, so keeping your home’s interior dry helps avoid an infestation.

It is crucial to repair leaks from the roof, pipes, or HVAC system, and ensure that your kitchen and bathrooms properly ventilate moisture out of the house.

Our Broward County mold inspectors put your health first. Beyond the material damage mold causes, the potential short- and long-term health risks are not to be taken lightly.

When should you inspect for mold?

Selling your home is not be the only reason to test for mold. Here are some signs you should consider hiring a mold inspector in Miami:

Multiple stains or discoloring in the walls and ceilings.

Leaks from windows

Lack of proper maintenance to the siding

Chronic leaks from the ceiling and pipes

Exposed building materials to excessive moisture for prolonged periods of times

Allergic reactions like a running nose, constant sneezing, and itchy eyes

Mold Discovery Process Overview

An inspector will thoroughly search floors, walls, ceilings, attics, rugs, crawl spaces, basements, and even the air itself looking for any signs of mold. If the levels of mold exceed the normal levels then you will be advised to hire a mold remediation company to eliminate or reduce mold to harmless levels.
