Mold Inspection and Testing in all of 
Chicago and Chicago Suburbs

Mold can be troublesome whether you are buying or selling a home. Mold can mean interior water leaks, structural damage, and potential health concerns.
 

White Glove Building Inspections, Inc. understands how important an accurate assessment of the presence of mold is, as well as the damage caused, and the related health concerns.  Included in all of our home inspections White Glove inspectors will do a visual mold inspection. However, the only way to confirm if you do indeed have active mold present is to move forward with lab testing.

Mold Test Mold Inspection White Glove Inspections

White Glove recommends conducting a Mold Test:

  • When purchasing a home  

  • If there is a past history of water penetration included in disclosures

  • After any type of flooding, roof leaks, or water penetration

  • When you smell mold or mildew, even if it is not visually noticeable

  • If anyone in your home is suffering from respiratory problems, chronic colds, or persistent flu symptoms

All of White Glove's inspectors are certified mold inspectors and testing technicians.  They will make recommendations during the course of an inspection for you to consider.  The minimum standard test the White Glove recommends is a three-part testing process. One sample is an outdoor control to establish an ambient baseline and then the remaining two samples are taken in areas of concern or in central locations within the property. Additional samples will be recommended for additional areas of concern, multiple stories, or for additional footage considerations. Testing can be done in a combination of air sampling, tape lift sampling, swab sampling, and bulk sampling. 

 

If you elect to have mold inspection and testing be sure to budget for 48-72 business hours for testing to be received and analyzed by the testing facility.
