Our Anaheim Mold Inspection Process

The mold inspection process typically involves the following steps:

  1. Initial assessment: The inspector will ask you questions about any visible signs of mold, past water damage, and any health symptoms you or your family members may be experiencing. They may also examine the exterior of the building for any drainage or water issues.

  2. Visual inspection: The inspector will conduct a thorough visual inspection of your property, including all rooms, crawlspaces, attics, and basements. They will look for any signs of mold growth, water damage, or other conditions that could promote mold growth.

  3. Moisture detection: The inspector may use moisture meters or thermal imaging cameras to detect any hidden moisture sources that could be causing or contributing to mold growth. They may also check for humidity levels in different areas of your property.

  4. Air sampling: The inspector may take air samples from different areas of your property to test for the presence of mold spores. The samples are typically sent to a lab for analysis.

  5. Lab analysis: The lab will analyze the air samples and provide a report detailing the types and concentrations of mold spores present in your property.

  6. Reporting: Based on the results of the inspection and lab analysis, the inspector will provide you with a detailed report outlining their findings and recommendations for mold remediation if necessary.

During a mold inspection, ServiceMaster's technicians will thoroughly examine your property for any signs of mold growth. We will also use specialized tools, such as moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras, to detect any hidden mold that may be present. Once the inspection is complete, we will provide you with a detailed report outlining their findings and recommendations for mold removal.

If mold is detected, ServiceMaster's technicians will use specialized equipment and techniques to remove it safely and effectively. They will also take steps to prevent future mold growth by addressing any underlying moisture issues and implementing preventative measures, such as improved ventilation and dehumidification.

How To Get Rid Of Mold

  • Safety Precautions: Before starting the mold removal process, take necessary safety precautions. Wear protective gear such as gloves, goggles, and a mask rated for mold spores to avoid direct contact with mold and minimize inhalation of spores.

  • Identify and Address Moisture Source: Mold growth is often a result of moisture or water damage. Identify and address the source of moisture to prevent further mold growth. Fix leaks, repair plumbing issues, improve ventilation, and control humidity levels in your home.

  • Containment: If the mold growth covers a larger area (more than 10 square feet) or is in an area with poor ventilation, consider creating a containment zone. Use plastic sheeting and tape to seal off the affected area from the rest of the house to prevent the spread of mold spores.

  • Remove Mold-Infested Materials: Porous materials that are heavily infested with mold, such as drywall, carpeting, or insulation, may need to be removed and properly disposed of. Follow local regulations for proper handling and disposal of mold-infested materials.

  • Clean Non-Porous Surfaces: Use a solution of water and detergent or a specialized mold cleaner to scrub non-porous surfaces, such as glass, metal, or plastic, that are affected by mold. Thoroughly clean the surfaces to remove visible mold and any residual spores.

  • Dry the Area: After cleaning, ensure that the area is thoroughly dried. Use fans, dehumidifiers, and proper ventilation to eliminate excess moisture. This step is crucial to prevent mold from returning.

  • HEPA Vacuuming: Use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter to vacuum the area and remove loose mold spores from surfaces, carpets, and upholstery. Empty the vacuum bag or clean the canister outside the house to avoid releasing mold spores indoors.

  • Monitor and Prevent: Regularly inspect your home for signs of mold and address any moisture issues promptly. Maintain good ventilation, control humidity levels, and promptly dry any areas affected by water damage.

It's important to note that while these steps can help with small-scale mold problems, extensive mold growth or cases where mold is present in hidden areas may require professional mold remediation services. Professional mold remediation companies have the expertise, equipment, and experience to handle larger or more complex mold issues safely and effectively.

frequently asked questions

  • What are the signs that I need a mold inspection?

    Some signs that you may need a mold inspection include visible mold growth, a musty odor, past water damage, or any health symptoms that could be related to mold exposure. You may also want to consider a mold inspection if you are buying or selling a property, or if you have recently had any water damage
  • Is mold inspection expensive?

    The cost of a mold inspection can vary depending on the size of your property, the extent of the inspection, and the location of the property. However, a mold inspection is typically less expensive than mold remediation, which is the process of removing mold from your property. It's important to note that the cost of a mold inspection is a small price to pay for the peace of mind that comes with knowing your property is safe and healthy.
  • Can I do a mold inspection myself?

    It's not recommended to do a mold inspection yourself as it can be difficult to identify all mold sources and potential health risks. It's best to hire a professional mold inspector who has the training, experience, and equipment necessary to conduct a thorough inspection and provide you with accurate results.
  • How much does mold removal cost? 

    The cost of mold removal can vary significantly depending on several factors, including the size of the affected area, the extent of the mold growth, the accessibility of the mold, the type of mold, and the specific services required. Additionally, the cost may vary based on geographic location and the expertise of the mold remediation company. 

    For small-scale mold removal projects, such as addressing mold growth in a small area like a bathroom, the cost can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. This typically includes the inspection, containment, removal, and cleaning of the affected area. However, larger and more complex mold removal projects, such as extensive mold infestations that have spread throughout multiple rooms or involve hidden mold behind walls or in HVAC systems, can be more expensive. These projects may require additional services such as demolition, reconstruction, and specialized equipment, leading to costs ranging from several thousand to tens of thousands of dollars.
