Welcome to South Florida Mold Inspections! If you are searching for a company to do your mold inspection, then you have come to the right place! Our mold assessor has been performing mold investigations since 2007.

We get many calls from potential clients looking for information on mold inspections. They generally want to know what a mold inspection consists of, and how much does it cost. Because every case is unique, we usually have to ask the client a number of questions about the home or business before we can properly answer their questions. Below is a general explanation of the process from start to finish.

  • Gather information before the initial visit regarding the condition of the major systems, and whether there have been roof leaks or recent flooding of the property.
  • Perform an on site visual inspection of the building and the systems which  affect the indoor air quality.
  • Record the temperature and relative humidity inside the property.
  • Use thermal imaging to locate hidden moisture sources that may not be visible to the human eye.
  • Take pictures and document the conditions in the written report in order to implement a plan of action, if needed.
  • When testing is indicated, samples will be collected from the area(s) of concern,  from non-complaint areas, and from an outside control.
  • Both air samples and surface samples may be taken,  if indicated.
  • Submit the written report of the findings, including a protocol for remediation, if indicated.
  • Return to perform post remediation testing upon completion of remediation to determine if the remediation was successful.

Mold FAQs

I am buying a condo unit and I am scheduled for a home inspection. Do I need a mold inspection too?

Not everyone needs a mold inspection. If you don’t have any health issues you might want to wait to see if the home inspector finds any leaks to decide if you want a mold inspection.

I suddenly started experiencing allergies while I am at home. My doctor suggested I get a mold inspection. Is this common?

Yes, people who suffer from allergies or headaches while at home with symptoms disappearing while away from home may be living with mold and would likely benefit from a mold inspection.

My water heater burst while I was on vacation. I came home and two rooms were flooded. I cleaned it up and don’t see any mold, should I have the air tested?

Mold can begin to grow in a very short time.  If the water saturated drywall, carpet or other porous building materials, you may have hidden mold.

I recently had a remediation done in my home. Now the remediation company says I need to have clearance testing done. Is this necessary?

Yes, you need an independent company to perform post remediation or clearance testing. This ensures the remediation company was successful at removing all the mold.

My home has  an odd smell recently.  How do I know if it is mold?

That depends, VOCs, volatile organic compounds, found in furniture, paint and some flooring can off gas unpleasant odors.  If you haven’t redecorated recently, you might want rule out mold by having the air tested.

My roof is leaking and I can see mold on the ceiling. Can I just clean it up?

I am renting an apartment that I believe has mold. The landlord says to just clean it up. What are my rights? 

A mold impacted property should not be rented. You may need to take legal action if the owner refuses to take care of the issue. Please get legal advice before breaking your lease.

Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging is a non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to see hidden things that may not be visible to the human eye. This technology does have limitations, but an inspection using thermal imaging can reliably identify and document moisture intrusion, energy loss, and even hot spots. At JP Enterprises, we use thermal imaging mostly to locate plumbing leaks, roof leaks, condensation, missing insulation, and other types of moisture intrusion that could lead to mold. There are many other uses for thermal imaging in the inspection business.

Some of the limitations of thermal imaging are some images can be difficult to interpret accurately, and accurate measurements can be affected by differing emissivities and reflections from other surfaces. Thermal imaging is only able to directly detect surface temperatures. Weather and job site conditions can have a substantial effect on thermal imaging.
