Mold Inspection, Clearance Testing & IAQ Assessment

Call us today!


What is a Mold/IAQ Clearance?

Per current Federal guidelines and FL DBPR regulations, a home or building can be certified mold-safe when:

  • Is found free of visible mold, debris or filth,
  • There are no plumbing, storm drainage or structural deficiencies that may lead to moisture intrusion,
  • Substrates are dry (11% or less moisture content),
  • Its ventilation system is clean and fully operational,
  • Indoor ambient relative humidity is below 60%, and
  • Indoor air sampling identified fungi are of similar composition, and fungal spore (CFU) counts per cubic meter of air are ideally 1/3 or less than those of an outdoor air sample taken at the time of the survey.

However, no two homes or buildings are alike, and only true professionals can discern mold variables. In Florida, only a State Licensed Mold Assessor can lawfully issue a Mold/IAQ Clearance, Post-Remedial Verification or remediation protocol. Please Beware: Regardless of IICRC or any other credential, an Unlicensed Mold Vendor at Your Doorstep = Mold Fraud or Scam.

Our mold inspection and IAQ assessment services are divided into 2 categories:

Vacant/Market Ready Sites

Vacant/market-ready sites are generally in good maintenance status, professionally cleaned, and some staged to appeal prospects. Such sites are faster to survey, assessments are mainly for seller’s disclosure or buyer’s documented peace of mind, and unlike our competition, if a site meets clearance, we offer Up to 90 Days Commission Warranties.

If any, mold findings or problem areas are reported, but since the site is vacant, follow-up directives are left entirely to the client’s discretion.

Occupied Sites

Homeowners & managers are known to pledge commendable housekeeping effort or expense, and even though a site may seem pristine, could still experience indoor microbial growth. Moreover, mold is typically a symptom of another issue in occupied buildings, and various additional factors (i.e. occupant’s activities or lifestyle) must be taken into account when performing an assessment, which is mainly in response to a complaint.

Assessing occupied sites often leads to unforeseen factors that may be detrimental to a site or its occupant’s health, but not caused by the site itself. Aside from source ID and remedial tasks, preventive measures may need to cover grey areas of site maintenance, ventilation, space management or hygiene.

When to consider having a mold or IAQ safety assessment done?

  • Are you buying or selling a property and you don’t know if there are any issues that could lead to mold growth?
  • Are you buying a property that has evidence of moisture damage but there is no seller’s disclosure about it?
  • Did a home inspection report unveil a mold issue and recommended further professional evaluation?
  • Is there a musty, damp or foul smell in your home or building, but no visible sources that could cause them?
  • Are there any drywall stains, wood rot, paint bubbles or other cosmetic flaws of unknown origin anywhere?
  • Was there a sink or toilet overflow or sewer back-up and you’re unsure about how thorough the flood cleanup work was?
  • Is the property experiencing high indoor relative humidity or frequent or ongoing rodent or other pest invasions?
  • Are you considering initiating a mold-based lawsuit or insurance claim?
  • Was mold remediation performed and a third-party Post-Remedial Verification certificate is required?
  • Do occupants seem to experience itchy eyes, skin rashes or other allergic reactions only while in there?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then an assessment may be justified.


Our standard or basic Mold/IAQ assessments range from $300.00 to $900.00, pricing is based on property size & status (we assess a typical 1,100 S.F. vacant site for $345.00). All assessments include mold/IAQ sampling as required, and laboratory analysis results turnaround time is 48 hours.

We provide custom or high-end moisture intrusion insurance claims, construction or structural defects litigation assessments.
