When purchasing a new property, you never know what sort of water damage the space might have seen with its previous tenants. Since mold only needs around 48 hours to start growing and spreading, it doesn’t take much for a house to be filled with this harmful issue. While you may not see any mold in the property, it could be growing inside the walls or inside air ducts without being detected. That’s where we come in.
At Inspection NOW, we believe in getting things done quickly and doing them the right way. A typical home inspection won’t include testing for mold, but we offer all the tests you could need and more. The old adage “better safe than sorry” certainly rings true for us, and we leave nothing to chance. We combine our state-of-the-art tools with 13 years of inspection experience to give you accurate results.
Make an informed decision by partnering with the Inspection NOW team. We look forward to helping you find peace of mind and the answers you need to confidently purchase your new property.

Can mold grow in your lungs?
The mold spores can colonize (grow) inside lung cavities that developed as a result of chronic diseases, such tuberculosis, emphysema, or advanced sarcoidosis. … Invasive aspergillosis, the most severe type, occurs when the infection travels from the lungs into the bloodstream.
People with asthma and mold allergies are the first to ask about mold testing. Since their symptoms are primarily respiratory, it is only logical they ask for “air quality testing.” Other individuals looking for peace of mind or suffering much more severe symptoms sometimes also ask for mold testing air quality services.
Part of our job is to help develop a mold testing air quality sampling plan specific to your project/home or business, and to help interpret the lab results in light of discoveries made during the visual inspection.
