Cardinal HI

Home Inspector

Mold and/or mold spores are present in every home.  The mold type, quantity (spore count), and environment determines how to deal with it.  The only way to determine the type of mold that is present in your home is to have it tested.

Not all molds are the same.  Some molds produce harmful mycotoxins and most molds give allergic reactions. Such as; itchy watery eyes, sneezing, coughing, skin rash; and various infections. Other molds such as stachybotrys chartarum also known as “black mold” or “toxic mold” can cause asthma or other severe respiratory health problems and should be remediated and reported to your health provider if you have been exposed and are experiencing respiratory problems.

As a certified IAQ/Mold Inspector and a member of the International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants (IAC2) we can perform mold testing that provide you with the information you need in order to determine how to deal with the presence of mold.

Our mold inspection services include sampling (by means of swab, lift, and/or air), lab testing, environmental assessment, and proposed suggestions for mold remediation and/or sanitization. You can rely on our services to collect the information you need to make the educated decisions required to provide a healthier indoor environment for you and your family or business.

Cardinal Home Inspections LLC conducts mold testing only.  We do not conduct remediation services, therefore we provide you with an unbiased mold assessment and recommendations that may save you thousands.  This insures that you are not being sold expensive mold remediation services if not needed.   Our air testing  is a snapshot to determine if a problem exists and if more in depth testing and remediation is necessary.

*The mold inspection is not included in a standard home inspection. It is a separate service that can only be conducted by our certified mold inspector.
