The mold inspector will want a history of the mold

Once the professional inspector arrives, they will require some basic information from you. This information will include reasons why you think you are dealing with a mold infestation, the areas in your home that have been affected as well as being asked if there are any measures that you have taken to combat the mold. These questions serve to give the inspector a better understanding of the situation that they will be dealing with. Once you have answered the inspector’s questions, they will then need to look around your home.

The mold inspector will want to conduct a site survey

As a homeowner, it would be quite tempting to shadow the inspector throughout their mold inspection. This, however, is not advisable. The professional needs to be given room to undertake their inspection as they see fit. What you can do is request the inspector to summon you in the event that they come across something that will need your attention. Other than that, you should now let the inspector get on with the business at hand, which would be “inspecting” your home. If any rooms have been locked, ensure you open them so that the professional can carry out a thorough mold inspection from top to bottom.

The mold inspector will advise you on the way forward

Once the mold inspection is complete, the professional will then want to have a chat with you about the situation of the infestation. Before jumping in with any questions, it is advisable to listen to all the information that they have garnered during their inspection. This information could range from the cause of the mold, the extent of the infestation and possible the measures that need to be taken for mold removal. Once the inspector is done, explaining the situation to you this is your chance to ask any pertinent questions you may have about the state of your home. Some of the answers that you should get include the cost of mold removal, the length of time the project will take, the types of treatments that will be used and so on.
