Mold Inspections

Molds can be found almost anywhere, as long as moisture and a food source is present. While not all molds are toxic, recent research shows an alarming rate of harmful fungal species in poorly maintained homes or buildings with water damage, moisture or high humidity levels.

Does Your Home or Building Promote Mold Growth?

Conditions that contribute to mold growth include:Mold

  • Water intrusion or leaks
  • Fibrous materials, such as wood, paper backing or gypsum board and any building product that can hold moisture
  • High humidity levels
  • Damp conditions

Identifying the Cause of a Mold Problem

A visual inspection by a certified GPI mold inspector can help to identify the presence of mold in your home or building. As part of the visual inspection, GPI can check:     

  • Basement and lower rooms, crawl space, rooms with water/moisture damage
  • Interior walls
  • Window frames
  • Carpet
  • Ceiling tiles and other current or former damp materials made of fibrous cellulose 
  • All accessible heating, ventilation and air conditioning components
  • Indoor plants
  • Attics 

If mold is suspected, samples can be collected and sent to a lab for analysis to confirm such contamination and help determine proper remediation. 

Mold Prevention

There are many steps you can take to reduce the risk of mold growth by controlling the moisture level in your home or building. Call GPI today for questions, quotes or to schedule your mold inspection.
