Although air pollution is largely thought of as an outdoor threat, it can cause even more problems inside the buildings where we live and work. That makes testing indoor air quality an essential part of the due diligence smart buyers undertake before purchasing property.

To limit your risk, turn to the experienced team at InspectPros, Inc. for mold inspection and air testing in Ventura, CA, and the surrounding areas. Call our friendly staff at (805) 484-9711 during normal office hours, or schedule an inspection online 24/7.

Mold Inspection Ventura

How Does InspectPros’ Mold Testing Work?

We take a belt-and-suspenders approach to checking for mold and other potentially harmful air pollutants, completing the following steps:

  • Indoor air test: Collect air samples to look for mold spores, which the fungus uses to reproduce.  
  • Surface test: Swab household surfaces in search of mold and spores.
  • Moisture test: Use a moisture meter to evaluate the moisture levels of the floors, walls, and ceilings. Molds need moisture to survive. 
  • Infrared scan: Employ infrared thermal imaging technology to find signs of undetected water damage.

Results are typically available from the lab within 24-48 hours of mold testing. If a problem is detected, our friends at Green Home Solutions can assist with remediation. Once a solution is in place, our inspectors can return to make sure the problem is really gone.

There’s a Fungus Among Us

The causes of indoor air pollution vary from house to house and even room to room. Contaminated air can seep in from outside, as well as enter from a smorgasbord of indoor sources such as consumer products, construction materials, insects, pets, and, yes, mold. Poor ventilation can cause toxins to accumulate to dangerous levels, a risk that tends to increase in fall and winter as buildings are sealed up to conserve heat.

Eliminate pollutants to avoid exposing your family, guests, and employees to health concerns like the following:

  • Headaches
  • Sinus issues
  • Respiratory problems
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Skin rashes

InspectPros wants to help, even if you’re not in the process of buying property. In addition to offering air-quality tests as an optional add-on to our full home inspections and commercial assessments, we’ll also schedule a stand-alone mold inspection if you suspect there’s a problem in a building you already own. Either way, we can help you clear the air once and for all.
