What to expect from Mold Inspection in Virginia:
We start every mold inspection or mold assessment with a complete visual assessment of the interior and the exterior of the property to identify any/all conditions that could be contributing to mold development.
Thorough documentation is important for the both our inspector and our client. Detailed documentation will provide a clear reference for the findings. We’ll take pictures of all the areas of concern so you see exactly what we saw during your mold inspection.
Damp or wet building materials are almost always cooler than dry materials. Our inspectors will use thermal imaging cameras (or infrared cameras) to detect temperature differences in (and often behind) building materials. With this information, your inspector will be able to map out moisture patterns and trace the moisture source.
Since mold needs moisture to develop and thrive, finding that source of moisture is very important. Moisture mapping basically allows us to locate building materials that are damp or wet enough to support mold growth. Testing for moisture also helps us determine if water leaks have been resolved or if they are actively leaking and can locate where water damage starts and stops.
Airborne Mold Testing:
Your mold inspector may need to collect air samples to determine if your indoor mold spore levels are higher than they should be.
Surface Mold Testing:
Is it just water staining, or is it mold? Surface testing with mold swabs or bio tape lifts will answer those questions. In many cases, surface testing isn’t necessary if mold growth is visibly obvious.
Inner Wall Mold Testing:
When mold is suspected behind a wall or above a ceiling, those areas should be tested. Today’s mold testing technologies and techniques allow mold inspectors to take air and surface samples from wall or ceiling voids without causing unnecessary damage to the property.
Mold Inspection Summary Report:
Your inspector will compile all of the findings, including all the information gathered on site and a detailed discussion of the mold testing lab report, to generate a clear, concise and easy to read report.
Scope of Work:
Upon request, your mold inspector will design a mold remediation plan specific to your property. Your scope of work will include cleanup suggestions as well as preventative measures that are necessary to keep mold from returning.
PRV Testing (Post Remediation Verification Testing):
Also referred to as clearance testing. This is a mold inspection conducted following a mold remediation for quality assurance. Once the mold has been removed, it is important to know that the job was done right – the first time. PRV Testing will determine if cleanup efforts were successful or if further cleanup is necessary.
