Mold Inspection & Testing
Most inspection service providers attempt to get their foot in the door by offering a relatively low inspection price, and then offering numerous “additional services” once they arrive at your home and try to “up-sell” their products. At Bay Area Mold Pros, we tell you upfront what we are providing, and what it will cost you.
We have been providing thorough mold inspection and testing services to residents of San Mateo, Redwood City, and throughout the Bay Area for over 40 years.
What is Included
Even if you suspect that your home has a very specific problem area, you will receive a written inspection report which provides observations and recommendations about potential issues, including the following: drainage plane issues (what’s behind your walls), roofing and gutter issues, window and door issues, foundation and grading issues, and siding and stucco issues.
You will receive a written inspection report which will detail moisture readings taken throughout your home, including readings of concrete surfaces in garages and crawl spaces, readings of drywall and plaster in living areas, readings of flooring in living areas, and readings of tile (and other coverings) in bathroom and kitchen areas.
You will receive a written inspection report which will detail humidity readings in all living areas, as well as in any crawl spaces and attics.
You will receive lab results from two air samples, one of which will be taken from outside your home (taken as a control test), and one of which will be taken from the suspected problem area. The air sample results will be provided by the certified lab performing the scientific analysis of the samples taken.
If you choose to have swab samples taken (rather than air samples), you will receive lab results from the two swab samples taken from suspected problem areas. The swab sample results will be provided by the certified lab performing the scientific analysis of the samples taken. The price listed below includes either the air sample analysis or the swab sample analysis. Should client choose to have both air and swab samples taken, this will cost an additional $150 ($75 per lab analysis.)
Our Written Report
The written report produced by Bay Area Mold Pros will contain an explanation and recommendations regarding the moisture readings and humidity readings found. This report will also contain our visual observations and recommendations of the structure itself. Because the lab reports from the air and swab sample results are not always the most user-friendly documents, Bay Area Mold Pros will provide a written explanation of what the reports have concluded. The report is also written in layman’s terms, and clients can phone Bay Area Mold Pros if there are any issues requiring an additional explanation.
