When it comes to mold inspection in your commercial or residential place, it’s imperative to hire a well qualified mold inspector with the credentials, certifications, and one who can deliver and create the right protocol for remediation if it’s needed.
Here at The Twin Plumbers we have remediated our share of mold throughout our years in the plumbing business. Being plumbers, we’re usually the first responders to moisture & mold issues. Also, being fully certified in mold remediation gives us the opportunity to meet and work with great people not only in the plumbing business, but the mold inspection and remediation industry.
First let’s get an understanding of what a mold inspection is. Many customers call in and expect a “mold inspection” to be FREE. This, however, is a different service from a free “mold estimate,” similar to what we provide here the Twin Plumbers and our restoration division Dry Right when a customer has visible mold.
When you are in need of an “inspection,” you probably don’t see visible mold but are very concerned due to an odor, have symptoms such as sneezing, watery eyes, feeling lethargic or simply purchasing a new property and want to verify that it’s a safe environment. This is actually a service that requires equipment, testing, visible inspection through an attic, crawlspace, basement and a swab microbial and an air microbial testing that will be sent to a certified lab for results.

When it comes to the cost of hiring a mold inspector, be prepared to spend anywhere from $250.00 to $2,500.00 depending on what’s being inspected and what type of testing is going to be performed. Always do your own research and ask for referrals, typically a good real estate agent or real estate company will have some good ones on their contact list.
