Mold Inspections for Property Sellers:When selling your home or office space, it is prudent to avoid costly delays in the process and identify problems before the buyer identifies them. When that happens, the buyer may not take the time to find a solution to the problem and simply walk away from the transaction. Real estate transactions are stressful enough. The goal should be to resolve the problem correctly so that the transaction proceeds.
Mold Testing and Mold Inspections may require both indoor air samples for mold and lift-tape surface samples to determine if a discoloration on a surface is mold, what the species is and how active the organism is. Often, a inspecting the concern areas and surfaces visually is not practical since airborne mold can’t be seen with the naked eye and that surface discoloration may not be mold.
To inspect a home or building for mold, PowerBees provides following as part of the microbial investigation:
PowerBees sends a mold inspector, certified for both residential and commercial mold inspections, to your office building or home for the mold inspection. The mold investigation consists of gathering a history of property and a history of past water or moisture penetration into the home or dwelling. A comprehensive history of the property is important for determining an accurate mold remediation protocol if testing is abnormal. PowerBees also takes humidity and moisture readings, inspects for visible mold, water damage and any root cause. PowerBees will also asses the exterior of the home or office building for problems that result in interior water damage. PowerBees may collect air samples, surface samples or a combination of both during the mold investigation. PowerBees will take a sample from the outside to compare indoor air to the outdoor air – this is called a baseline comparison. Prior to sending the samples to an independent third-party lab, PowerBees seals and sends all samples the samples out for processing. PowerBees can have those samples rushed through processing for an extra fee. Rushed samples are typically available within 36 hours …sometimes the next day. PowerBees will review the results, when they’ve become available, along with the data we’ve accumulated while inspection the home or building for mold, to generate a detailed report stating the history of the property, the physical data we’ve collected e.g., humidity and moisture readings, a results summary a detailed set of recommendations to resolve the mold if the samples come back as abnormal. PowerBees may recommend additional microbial air or surface sampling if the results come back high. If PowerBees noticed any problems with the home of building’s exterior during the investigation, a set of recommendations will be provided to address those issues as well.
