Living in Florida we have 2 distinct seasons, hot and wet. Both of those increase the likelihood of mold growth regardless of whether it is a new home or older home. The problem is that unless you get the mold tested by a lab like Inspector Lab, you won't know whether it is something that can be cleaned with bleach and water or needs to be remediated. At Inspectagator, we can go in and test that mold through air quality samples as well as swabs and provide results in 24-48 hours. It is always safer to have it tested by a lab.

Although it sounds scary and expensive, simple testing is actually quite affordable. As licensed Mold Assessors and Mold Remediators, we offer clients options. Test 1 area or the whole house. We do investigations prior to making these decisions and let the client make a decision that fits their needs and budget. Since Priority Lab just came out with their own cassettes, it is even more affordable than ever for inspectors to break into this worthy and valuable business and do it with the very best equipment like the Breeze, the most affordable cassettes and the fastest lab results from Priority Lab available. Here's also a link to a quick video I did about the new cassettes, https://youtu.be/QMGnQTDXJrU

I have a feeling after all the snow and freezing temperatures and frozen pipes in the San Antonio area, that we will be very busy with mold testing over the next month or two. Hopefully people are able to get their burst pipes fixed before they cause too much damage, but we are ready for the mold testing rush.

Here's some thermal images from yesterday near San Antonio, TX showing some massive water intrusion in the ceiling of a home.
