Top Five Things to Look for When Hiring a Mold Inspection Company
If you are moving into a new home, you may assume that it’s a healthy home. However, there may be pollutants and mold that could affect your health. To the untrained eye, mold can be difficult find and you can’t afford to ignore it and risk the health of your loved ones.
A mold inspection company conducts a walkthrough in the area of concern, diagnoses the problem, completes a moisture test to find leaks or standing water, conducts a thermal imaging test to find moisture issues behind walls, comes up with a protocol to confront the problem and gives an inspection report to review the issues that mold inspectors have found.
To help you find the right professional for your needs, we have compiled a list of the top five things to look for when hiring a mold inspection company.
1. Are they registered with the state?
The first thing you need to know about the mold inspection company you are planning to hire is whether they are registered with the state. Only a registered company is authentic, dependable and will follow rules formulated by the state and strive to provide services that match the standards set by it.
2. Do they have certification?
It’s crucial to know that mold inspectors of the company you’re considering to hire have certification. This will ensure that they are qualified and well trained to perform mold inspection in a correct manner.
3. Do they have business accreditations?
