Problems That Can Kill A Home Sale – from Consumer Reports
What Every Homeowner Fears, But Probably Shouldn’t
Selling A Home With Mold
Existing home sales – June 2015
Gerald Young, owner and certified microbial investigator from several accredited organizations, offers two different levels of inspection depending upon your situation. Please call for pricing.
PRELIMINARY INSPECTION - NON INTRUSIVE
- A visual inspection of the indoor environment will be performed by the technician to look for all possible points of water intrusion of the home as well as humidity checks.
- An assessment of odors will be done by pinpointing the exact location and/or source and a treatment process will be discussed for each situation.
- The technician will make recommendations for necessary repairs, if any.
Note: If a mold like substance is suspected, a more comprehensive survey is recommended.
COMPREHENSIVE INSPECTION - POST REMEDIATION
- This survey would include indoor air quality sampling with one or some of the following (depending on the situation).
- Air Samples
- Swab Test
- Settle Plate
- Tape Lift
- VOC Sampling (Volatile Organic Compounds)
- Identification and analysis, as well as a report will be provided by an accredited laboratory.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Should it be necessary to collect air samples, it is mandatory that two be taken. The first sample is taken outdoors to be used as a baseline to identify what molds and amounts are common in your area. The second is taken in the most suspect area of concern.
Sometimes all you need is the assurance that you do not have a mold problem. Jerry’s expertise as a general contractor and microbial investigator will provide you with the knowledge you need to make important decisions and move forward.
Our licensed and Certified Microbial Investigator / Certified Mold Inspector, Gerald Young has been helping people and businesses across Washington since 2001 to settle fears during real estate transactions, helping to close deals, help homeowners determine what course to take when suspected mold or other contaminants are found and what to do about it, as well as assist in odor removal services.
When it comes to our Mold Inspection Services, it’s the count of the colony forming units (CFU’s) that will make the difference in whether remediation is necessary (by a licensed, certified remediation company of your choosing) or simple cleaning procedures to remedy the problem.
Please BEWARE of companies that perform mold inspections AND remediation services; consider it a conflict of interest. ALWAYS use a different mold inspection company than the remediation company to take air samples after the work has been done to provide you with an unbiased clearance report to reassure that the work has been done properly!
