What Factors Affect the Cost of Mold Inspection?
Size of home:
The larger the space, the more work a mold inspector has to do for both a visual inspection and collection of samples, which will tack on to the overall cost.
Location and Accessibility:
If mold is immediately visible upon inspection, it’s easier for a mold inspector to get right to work. However, if mold is suspected in a hard-to-get area, like in the walls, ceiling or HVAC ductwork, attic or crawlspace then there is more work that needs to be done. This, of course, will add up to a higher cost.
Extent of the Contamination:
Similar to finding evidence of pests in your home, the more extensive the mold problem, the more work that needs to be done to remedy it. It’s important to reiterate that the quicker you can call in a mold inspector, the better off you will be in correcting the problem.
Type of Mold:
Mold of any type is never a welcome guest in your home, but black mold is the one that you want to evict promptly. Depending on the type of mold you have and there’s a long list of types that a professional mold inspection can determine it may take more money and time to eradicate it. Again, time is of the essence. Catch any sign of mold growth early enough, and you could save time and money.
