How to prepare for your mold inspection
Everything you need to know about Mold Masters inspection services
Preparing for your mold inspection
It can be intimidating to know that a stranger will be entering your home and poking around everywhere. We get it. But at Mold Masters, we want to make sure you know exactly what to expect during a mold inspection.
First, it will be important to prepare for your appointment. You’ll need to ensure that all furniture in the affected area is pushed away from the walls, and kept in the center of the room. We know this is a hassle, but it’s necessary to ensure we can best serve you. Depending on the situation, you may also need to move anything blocking the exterior of your home as well.
And most importantly, be prepared to answer questions about the history of your home. How old is it? How long have you lived there? Have you ever had a leak or flood? Do you have pets? These answers will be crucial in helping us determine the scope of your particular mold situation.
If you’re ever curious about what kinds of tests we’re doing, just ask! We want to keep you as informed as possible throughout the process.
If mold is found inside your home, next steps will need to be taken in order to eliminate it. Here at Mold Masters, we’re a full-service company, so after we diagnose your mold problem, we can also perform your mold remediation. We’ll be sure to keep you in the loop on what steps you’ll need to take to prepare for this service. You can read more about our mold remediation here.
