Mold Testing Los Angeles California
A mold inspection is a fairly straightforward procedure, but it’s important that you know what to expect. Mold Inspectors will start by asking questions about the history of your home and whether or not you have any health issues. After this, they’ll get on their hands and knees to inspect the crawl space for any indications of water damage. If there are no signs of water damage near the foundation, then they’ll head upstairs to do a visual inspection. This includes checking behind outlets or sinks in case there is hidden mold growth inside these locations. Some of the most common problems that bring people to us on a regular basis include musty odors and strange smells, respiratory issues, and concern over indoor air quality. There are also those who want to avoid taking over someone else’s mold problem by getting their home or business professionally inspected as soon as possible.

Established in 2010
Golden State Mold Inspections was established in 2010 to help serve the growing need of mold inspections in Southern California. Mold contamination has become a major concern among home buyers, homeowners, renters, landlords, and insurers. We work close with our clients to answer any questions they may have concerning mold, perform inspections, testing and provide remediation requirements to ensure our clients are safe.
How do you know if you need a mold inspection? There are many cases in which a mold inspection is necessary. You could be noticing an odor that you can’t identify or notice an area that appears to have mold growth. Most inspection requests are made after discovery of water intrusion, whether it’s a plumbing leak or a roof leak. Some may say that Southern California does not get enough rain for mold to be an issue, but whether it rains a little or a lot, any amount of water intrusion can cause serious damage and cause mold growth. Whether living in Irvine, Simi Valley, Riverside or Los Angeles, Mold inspections after heavy rain or a newly discovered water leak are worth it. If you are buying a home, a mold inspection should definitely be part of your due diligence. Sellers might not be aware of a mold issue and general home inspectors are inspecting the homes major systems, not mold. You do not want to close escrow on a home only to discover a major mold issue that may costs thousands of dollars to repair.
Landlords should always get a mold inspection at the request of their tenants or at the first mention of potential mold. Pro-active measures in these situations can save you Thousands in potential court costs. There are a lot of unscrupulous mold inspection companies out there that take advantage of these situations and can provide nightmare reports to tenants that will end up in court. Avoid these situations by getting a mold inspection from a trusted mold inspection company. There is not a local Los Angeles mold inspection authority, so it is important to use a trusted company.
Be wary of discount or free mold inspection offers. There are many Los Angeles Mold Inspection companies that will offer free or discounted inspections because they are also remediation contractors. This is a conflict of interest. It is always recommended to use an inspection company that does not have any interest in the amount of remediation work that may be necessary. Companies that do often inflate the amount of work and or recommend work for non-existing issues, in order to make more money on the remediation work. Spending a little extra for a non-bias honest mold inspection company is well worth it.
With every inspection, we provide a detailed report with pictures, all findings and a scope of work. The scope of work is the remediation instructions. These are the steps that a remediation contractor will need to follow to ensure the mold growth is properly and safely removed and also what work is needed to ensure that the mold growth does not come back. Golden State Mold Inspections provides the inspections and testing only, we do not do any construction work. So, when choosing a contractor for remediation, be sure that they a re a Certified Remediation Contractor. Again, it is a situation where you may think you are saving money by using a handyman or non-certified contractor, but these are the situations where they may do an improper job and make the situation worse. After remediation work is completed, you need a Mold Clearance Certificate, which is a visual inspection of the work done and an air sample to confirm that it is safe. Non-certified contractors and handymen make up 99% of all failed clearance inspections.
