Mold Inspection – What Is Involved?

The job of a mold inspector is to provide accurate and professional advice about airborne molds and particles in a private or commercial building. Some aspects of this type of building inspection include recognizing and identifying molds in allergens, mold testing, and cleaning, removing contaminants in other rooms, and steps to improve overall air quality.

The quality of the specific work of the Fungus inspector in Houston  includes knowing how and where to look for mold in buildings, general sampling errors that should be avoided, the use of appropriate flashlights to identify hidden molds, and knowledge of the appearance of molds in various areas and on various surfaces.

Initially, a mold inspector must decide where the building is located to take the printed sample. One of the most reliable sampling tests is collecting surface mold samples seen with clear adhesive tape. Often this method is more effective than testing airborne particles or culture samples.

Common mistakes with mold sampling include the selection of the wrong specimen for the sample, testing material that is not completely molded, only testing clear "black molds" or just looking for samples in certain areas of the building that might be wrong. A mold inspector must also be careful to test the appropriate surface and choose organic surfaces such as drywall or wood panels on inorganic surfaces such as concrete.
