Pricing & Procedure of Mold Inspections

             ---Mold Assessment (Inspection) and Indoor Air Quality testing---

If you've experienced water damage or unusual musty odor in your home or place of business, you may be at risk of mold contamination.

More than just affecting indoor air quality, molds can produce toxins that can cause serious health risks in both humans and animals.

The quality of mold remediation service varies widely from company to company, and choosing the wrong one can lead to incorrect test conclusions and bad advice. A company must be licensed by the Texas Dept. of State Health Services to assess mold. Ours is MAC1187 issued by the Texas Dept.of State Health Services. That's why it's essential to hire a qualified, licensed mold inspection agency to isolate the problem so you can stop it at the source.

All assessments include an inspection with moisture testing of water stains and damage, tests for humidity and photos documenting the issues. When samples are taken, they are analyzed by a microbiologist at MOLDLAB a local lab in Dallas, and included in the report with an interpretation and recommendations of what to do next.

I will test the air in the interior and compare it to an outdoor sample to see if there are raised levels of a particular mold spore inside. The assessment includes an inspection for signs of visible mold, water intrusion points, a lab analysis of the air samples by a microbiologist and an interpretation of all this information to assess the situation in your inteiror and give you a course of action...if any. I am also a licensed professional real estate inspector and wood destroying insect inspector as well as licensed mold inspector. I will use all these disciplines and my 25 years experience of inspecting to help you discover any problems that exist now or may exist because of certain conditions in your building.
There are 2 different levels of assessment and testing:

Visible Mold Samples and Air Sampling:

-The fee for an inspection for visible mold ranges from $300 to $450 and includes site assessment, report with photos. A tape lift or swab sample of actual mold is an additional fee of $50 for each location, which includes the lab fees and the lab interpretation of the results. Usually only one sample is needed unless multiple rooms are tested.


-The fee for the Indoor Air Quality test and assessment report starts at $450 which includes up to 2 samples, lab results, assessment report with photos and the lab interpretation of the results and recommendations. Additional samples are extra depending on the size of the area tested.
An additional fee is added per air sample for an expanded profile analysis which reports on other microbials and more than just mold spores.

-The next step, if needed, are fees for remediation protocols or work write-ups when a large area of mold needs to be removed by a professional licensed remeditaion company. A Mold Remediation Protocol fee is determined by the amount of work needed and the size of the project and start at $400 and may have addtional tests or visits to the property after the work is complete. Please keep in mind that this is not an exact science and all situations are unique and priced according to the location of contamination and square footage. Pier and beam crawlspaces are an addtional fee to enter and inspect and vary on the contamination size.
