Mold in the Past
During our inspection process, we make sure to look for past or current mold growth. Finding past mold growth may be a way of identifying a water problem which continues to arise after a long rainy day, a repetitive leak or humid Nashville weather. Past mold growth may also cause some of our clients to have an allergic reaction or, start having allergy symptoms which didn’t exists previously. We appreciate our clients understanding and availability in answering some preliminary questions that our inspectors may have in regards to past mold. This is perfectly normal and is part of protocol.
Looking for the source
During the mold inspection process, it is essential for our team to look for sources of moisture, given that water is necessary for mold growth. Without a source of water (or moisture), you will not have mold growth. Finding the origin of mold growth is a way of eliminating further complications. Our team of inspectors are highly aware of the importance of looking for sources of moisture during the inspection process so that you can forget about mold coming back.

The mold inspection process begins with a visual inspection, checking for mold throughout the indoor and outdoor of the house. For this, our team uses specialized tools and equipment, such as a moisture meter and a humidity scale meter. The second part of the mold inspection process is the diagnosis, which is when a detailed identification of the sources of moisture intrusion and are reported.
