Do you need a mold inspection?
If you suspect you have mold growing inside your home or business, it’s best to hire a professional to do a thorough inspection. Bay Area Mold Pros has the proper tools and the expertise to check everywhere for mold growth, even in the areas where you may not see it.
Mold is a natural fungus found growing outdoors. It’s not a concern when growing outdoors. In fact, it serves a purpose: to break down leaves and other materials. If mold is growing indoors, however, it can affect your home’s structural integrity, as well as the health of everyone who lives there.
Mold needs just one element in order to grow: moisture. This moisture can come from a water intrusion, from condensation, or even from excessive humidity.
If you have experienced a water intrusion, or condensation is present on walls, windows or other surfaces, you need to ensure that the water is dried out within 24 hours, or mold growth can occur. If your humidity is elevated, this too can lead to mold growth, and needs to be brought under control as soon as possible.

You can’t get rid of mold unless you know everywhere that it’s growing. Bay Area Mold Pros will interview you at the time of the inspection to determine those areas that you are most concerned with in your home.

Best of all, you know what it will cost you for all these services BEFORE we begin. No surprises or “hidden” fees.
