Everything to Consider When Hiring a Mold Inspection Company

Did you know mold can make its way into your house through open doorways and even via your pet?

Mold in Central Florida homes is more common than you realize. If you think you have signs of mold in the house, it’s time to call in the experts. 

But finding the right mold inspection company in you area can be hard. Before you decide, it’s important to know what your options are. 

Check out our guide for everything to consider when hiring a mold inspection company. 

Mold Inspection Experience 

Choose a mold inspection company that has experience. That way, you can take comfort in knowing you are dealing with a specialist in the industry.

The best way to do this is to check out the company’s website and take a look at what their specialist mold services are.

They should provide a detailed description of all their services. This should include a visual inspection, mold testing, and sampling services. Beware of mold testing companies that offer clean up services as well. They may have other interests besides your health.

And don’t be afraid to ask questions. Inquire about their training, qualifications, and certifications they have to conduct mold inspections. 

Online Customer Reviews 

Whenever you hire a service you should read the reviews first. They are a great indicator of the quality of service the company provides. Reviews are usually honest and should help you form your decision. 

Read the company’s responses to reviews. Do they respond well to feedback? Or, do they react in an unprofessional manner? If they’re positive and receptive to feedback, they may be a good choice. 

It can also help to ask around, especially if people you know have used their services. Gauge insight into how they felt and whether they would recommend their services. 

Mold Inspection Equipment 

Choose a mold inspection company that takes necessary precautions. This includes the health and safety of their customers and employees. So don’t be afraid to ask if their equipment and products are certified. 

The use of improper equipment and techniques can agitate mold and cause it to spread further. This can become a bigger and more costly problem to deal with. 

Mold Inspection Fees 

Comparing inspection fees is a good way to narrow your search to suit your budget and needs. Mold inspection fees can vary from company to company. But there should be standard pricing you can use for comparison.

Most companies will state their starting prices and rates online upfront. And give you the option to request a free quote. 

Keep in mind that a cheap service doesn’t mean they will provide the best quality service. It’s important to consider all aspects of hiring a mold inspection company. This will help you to make an educated decision.
