If your basement flooded, roof leaked, or a broken pipe sprayed water all over, you need to inspect for mold. Any place that got wet and was not quickly dried (within 24 to 48 hours) could become contaminated by mold.

Water damage can plant seeds of severe damage. If you had water damage at any point, from seasonal storms, a leaky roof, burst pipe, or other issues, and the water was not verified to be completely dry within 24 hours, there is a good chance that there is some degree of mold present. Once the mold is present, it can spread in times of increased moisture. If you’ve recently had any kind of water or flood damage, contact a professional mold tester.

If you’re considering buying a new property, not only should you have a general inspection done, but a specific mold inspection should be done as well. The general building inspector is going to do a largely visual inspection, but an expert in mold testing in Los Angeles will come with appropriate testing and sampling equipment. This can give you insight into a potentially serious issue with the building, but it can also give the buyer incredible leverage over the price if the issue wasn’t disclosed.

There is no way to know what kind of water damage may have happened in the house you are planning to buy. The only way to find out if mold is present is to do a mold inspection.

If a building has been closed up and unoccupied for months or years, humidity could have built up inside and caused mold to grow. This is especially a problem in warmer areas with high humidity.

If you have gone through the often expensive and difficult steps to deal with a mold problem, regular mold inspections are a good idea to make sure you really got rid of it all.

Before renovation and demolition activities, the Environmental Protection Agency’s National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants regulation requires that all building materials that will be impacted be surveyed to identify all ACM.

Due to the nature of mold, if you have ever had a flood event or confirmed mold presence in your home, you should have regular mold inspections. In most cases, this can be an annual inspection to ensure that things are still mold-free, but in other situations, it will provide an opportunity to catch potential issues early on. If mold is coming back, it can be a sign that the preventative measures taken last time did not work or have since failed, and finding that sooner can reduce the potential cost to repair.

If the property hasn’t been actively lived-in for an extended time, it’s always a good idea to have it tested for mold. Mold thrives in warm, damp spaces, and an uninhabited home that doesn’t have the air conditioning and dehumidifier running as often in the summer may face potentially extensive mold accumulation. 

Another contributing factor is that in homes that sit unoccupied for a while, other maintenance issues like crawlspace and basement waterproofing and general moisture control measures aren’t kept in the same condition they would be with inhabitants. All of this is a good cause to get a professional mold inspection if the home has been vacant for a few months.

Don't wait until you see mold!

It usually starts with an odd odor. Mold spores can trigger allergies, respiratory problems, and other health issues long before mold is visible. Rain and water seepage can permeate deep into areas that aren’t visible and cause irreparable damage if not addressed immediately.
