Mold Inspection, Testing & Analysis

serving San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties

Bay Area Mold Pros is a locally-owned and operated company that specializes in mold testing and mold inspection for residential and commercial properties.

Owner Rick Bruce is a Certified Mold Inspector (CMI) and licensed general contractor who has been building and remodeling homes in the Bay Area for over 40 years. His construction background provides a unique insight into tracking down sources of water leaks and mold growth. He's committed to personalized service and prompt responses, and in most cases, can be onsite the same day.


Bay Area Mold Pros offers professional and unbiased mold testing and mold inspection services. 

We do not provide mold remediation services as we see that as a conflict of interest

  • Investigating water damage and mold contamination issues
  • Verifying 3rd-party mold removal with lab testing and reports
  • Assessing indoor air quality and generating recommendations


We have fixed pricing at Bay Area Mold Pros. The total fee for our standard mold inspection is:


Includes all of the following:

● Physical inspection of your home (up to 5,000 square feet of living space) by one of our Certified Mold Inspectors.
● The collection of 4 total samples by the inspector (air, cavity, swab, slide, or bulk) to be analyzed by a completely independent lab, not affiliated with Bay Area Mold Pros.
● A full analysis of the 4* (or more) samples by highly trained lab techs at the largest independent laboratory in America.
● A written lab report which provides both the types and amounts of mold identified in your home.
● A written report prepared by your certified mold inspector which explains the lab report in terms that homeowners can understand.
● A written inspection report by your certified mold inspector that provides both conclusions and recommendations for dealing with your mold problem.

*Although 4 samples are generally enough to properly analyze the conditions present in a standard home, additional samples are available for $50 each.

How do we compare?

Most consumers want to know that they’re getting the most for their money. At Bay Area Mold Pros, we are confident that our pricing is a good value for the following reasons:

● We are not a franchise operation. There’s only one Bay Area Mold Pros. We started in the Bay Area. We live in the Bay Area. And we only serve customers residing in the Bay Area.
● We are a family business. It’s no coincidence that every member of our team at Bay Area Mold Pros has the same last name. We are a family business, and as such, we take pride in our reputation. Our family’s roots in San Francisco go back to the 1800’s, prior to the 1906 earthquake, and we take that seriously. Afterall, it’s our name on this business.
● We have a lengthy background in construction. Almost all of the myriad issues related to mold growth are related to construction issues. The combined experience of our three inspectors (Rick, Tyson and Casey) exceeds 80 years of building and remodeling homes in the San Francisco Bay Area.
● We guarantee it. If, for whatever reason, you are not happy with the services provided by Bay Area Mold Pros, we will do whatever is necessary to make it right!

Rick did a great job in evaluating mold in my home. I called him on a Sunday afternoon, and he was able to evaluate the property the next day.


Though never great to deal with mold as a landlord, Rick made the testing process as painless as it could be.


Rick Bruce is truly an expert at this! I definitely recommend him if you suspect you have a problem with mold.


Wow! I cannot say enough good things about Bay Area Mold Pros!


Rick could not have been more professional. He was extremely thorough, provided great insight and recommendations, and was extremely personable and knowledgeable. I received the inspection report + lab results in 2 business days as promised and both reports were very detailed and thorough!

Super professional service. Was very happy with their scheduling--sent email confirmations to confirm logistical detail. Tyson is the person who helped us. He was punctual, professional, and performed his job with care--which I really appreciated. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone in need of services of this type.

Ashton U.

Tyson was fantastic! He was on time and extremely professional. He provided us with step by step instructions of what he was doing and how they tested. He walked us to each area of our home and explained what was happening and talked about different solutions that we could look into. He made the whole process easy. Results took a few days with full explanation. We are very happy that we choose to work with him! Would highly recommend!

Will W.

Super company to work with. Fast response, professional. I really appreciate that there is no conflict of interest and no concern about "upselling" the problem. Tyson was great to work with and I'd recommend the company highly.

Coleen S.

Rick was very knowledgeable and thorough. He was very friendly and down to earth. The reason why we called Bay Area Mold Pros is to have a professional opinion regarding our house.

Rick was able to answer all the questions we had and explained to us the situation within our house. He even gave us great suggestions as to what we can do moving forward. The report was very detailed. Having a professional opinion truly gave us peace of mind.

We are very happy that we called Bay Area Mold Pros and do recommend them to others.

Tyson came by and quickly assessed a unique situation I have here with drainage issues around my house and how they are affecting moisture levels inside the house. He provided actionable and reasonable advice and has been responsive to additional queries.

Richard B.

Tyson was wonderful to work with. He came out the same day we called and answered all our questions and even worked quietly so our baby wouldn't wake up from his nap. We appreciated Tyson's thoughtfulness and thorough work and will absolutely be using him for our re-inspection work!

Susan F.

Tyson came and did such a thorough inspection. He was extremely informative and easy to talk to and really made my family and I feel safe with his diligent work. I cannot recommend a family-owned business enough. Everyone we had interaction with at the Mold Pros was knowledgeable, extremely friendly and professional.
