Frequently Asked Questions about Mold Testing and Inspection
Do you offer mold remediation services?
No. We believe a conflict of interest exists when a company performs both an inspection and the remediation. We are strictly a mold testing company who can offer you an objective assessment with no incentive to determine if you need professional remediation.
What if I have questions after the inspection?
Rick Bruce is available daily from 7am - 7pm should you ever have any questions. When you call Bay Area Mold Pros you will speak with the owner, not an answering service.
How much does an inspection cost?
Our thorough inspection is $395. Please view our mold services to see what is included.
What does your inspection report contain?
The written report produced by Bay Area Mold Pros will contain an explanation and recommendations regarding the moisture readings and humidity readings found. This report will also contain our visual observations and recommendations of the structure itself. The report is written in layman’s terms.
