A mold inspector tests for the presence of toxic mold. As a requisite to treating mold, a mold inspection pinpoints areas of moisture accumulation and water damage that factor in mold growth. Mold inspectors take into account a building's history, occupant complaints and a thorough visual inspection when reporting on mold damage.
Professional mold inspectors use moisture meters and special cameras to locate mold problem areas. Infrared systems and flexible, fiber optic cameras called borescopes allow for mold inspection deep into walls, attics and foundations.
Mold Data:[Surveys show] that 30% to 50% of all structures [in northern U.S. and Canada] have damp conditions which may encourage the growth and buildup of biological pollutants. This percentage is likely to be higher in warm, moist climates.
