Mold Inspector Shakopee | Mold Inspection 952-456-4810

“Should I preform a mold inspection or moisture inspection” is one of the most frequent questions we hear from homeowners and potential home buyers. The potential for hidden moisture and possible hidden mold is in any home.

Our Mold Inspector will offer two different options for testing for mold, air spore sample or surface sampling

Home inspector Shakopee can test your home if you see, smell, or detect mold issues anywhere in your home. Hiring a professional mold tester who is experienced at collecting and analyzing mold samples will always lead to the most accurate results.

If you see any of the following signs below, contact Home Inspector Shakopee for a complete mold inspection and evaluation:

Mold Smell

One of the simplest ways to determine if mold is growing inside or outside your home is to give it the old sniff test. For those who have smelled mold in the past, they will likely never forget the smell. If you have never had the pleasure of smelling mold, I describe it this way. Mold on the outside of your house often smells stale, but mold on the inside smells musty and damp. A mold smell is not something to ignore. A little De-odorizers are not the answer. If you have sniffed out some mold, have it taken care of before it becomes a pervasive problem.

Visible Growth

Of course, if you see mold, then you know for sure that SOME mold exists. The question is, “How much?” It would be easy to assume that what you see is what you get, but unfortunately, this is not always the case. It’s the mold you CAN’T see that is often the scariest. Give yourself and your family the peace of mind of knowing your safe by giving us a call today!

Water Leaks

Current or previous leaks are often the indicator that mold is present. Whether it was a leaky pipe or a leak in the roof, these often produce moisture in overlooked places.

Water Intrusion

Water intrusion can take on many forms. Whether a sewer line is backed up or a pipe breaks or flooding occurs from an outside building, each problem can lead to mold if not cleaned carefully and completely. Often these problems cannot be spotted immediately, which leads to the probability of mold.

Past Flooding

If your house has been in a flood there’s a good chance you will end up with a mold problem. After a flood the best thing you can do is contact a mold remediation company or water damage specialist who performs clean ups of flooded homes.

This way you can be sure that all mold problems will be properly taken care of. You will also have the peace of mind of knowing that your home will be completely safe to continue living in after it’s been professionally remediated.
