A Mold Inspection is performed when there is a worry of a Mold infestation. The truth is, every home has some mold within the structure. The key is knowing if your levels are high or if the mold presents a problem affecting your structure, health, and over-all air quality. We utilize only the latest methods, and technology to ensure accurate and truthful results. There are company's who make a living on scaring people and creating mold problems that never exist. Beware of any company offering "Free Mold Inspections". There are cost associated with sampling, and laboratory test which are absolutely needed for an accurate assessment of any mold inspection. To give you an idea, if you do indeed have a mold problem. Remediation is not only removing the visible mold, but its also removing the airborne mold that is unseen. The only way to properly perform contain the airborne spores are to know what the spore count is in the air, the levels, and what family of mold is present. Without this information, no human can determine how many air purifying systems to run clean the air if remediation is needed. This practice is commonly overlooked by company's looking to take short cuts in the remediation process.

What's included with our inspections
A Thorough Visual Inspection
A Visual Inspection on the entire property will be performed. Our Inspectors are certified and trained to look for moisture intrusion, problem areas, musty smells, or any conditions where mold can thrive. We will ask a lot of questions about past water problems, current water problems, and any abnormalities. We will inspect all areas, rooms, crawlspace's, attic, garages, and all appliances that could be a water source for mold. If there is mold present, our main focus will not only be to identify the mold, but the source. Without addressing the source, mold will return if remediation is performed without identifying and correcting the source.
Thermal Imaging Technology
Unlike Most Mold Company's. Mold Boss utilizes Thermal Imaging Technology when performing a mold inspection on your property. The purpose of thermal imaging is to look for hidden leaks, moisture, and humidity within the structure that is unseen to the eye. I cannot tell you how many leaks we have found unknown to our clients. This technology will be used during the entire inspection and within the structure. Thermal imaging will also let us know if there are any wet areas that are unseen. This useful inspection has allowed us to react quickly to avoid future water damage within structures and lessen the opportunity for a Mold outbreak within properties. This service is standard with all of our mold inspections.
RELATIVE HUMIDITY CHECKING & INSPECTION
Mold thrives in high levels of humidity. Mold Boss performs relative humidity checks during our mold inspections. These checks are completed in every room throughout the structure. Rooms with high levels of humidity can become a breeding ground for toxic mold.
MOISTURE INSPECTION & CONTENT INSPECTION
Our Moisture Inspection is also performed with every mold inspection. The moisture inspection will determine if areas behind the surface are damp or moist. These tests will determine if areas need to be dried or if there is hidden moisture. Just another precaution Mold Boss takes while performing our Mold Inspections. We don't take chances. We take the extra mile.
BIO PUMP AIR SAMPLING
The Average person takes about 24,000 breaths per day. The Bio Pump Air Sampling is utilized to determine the amount of airborne mold present within a particular area of your home and will let us know exactly what you and your family are breathing in daily. The Bio Pump not only detects airborne mold, but other harmful toxins that could be present in the home. This test is standard with all of our Mold Inspections. Unlike most company's, Mold Boss does not charge you any extra fees to run this test. This test is included with the purchase of a Mold Inspection.
Mold Boss performs more Mold Inspections in Metro Atlanta than any other company. Mold Boss performs each inspection with honesty & integrity. Our Mold Inspections inspect crawlspaces, interiors, attics, basement, and all living areas. We will also check the air quality.

What is Mold?
Mold is detectable by smell and signs of water damage on walls or ceiling and can grow in places invisible to the human eye. It may be found behind wallpaper or paneling, on the inside of ceiling tiles, the back of drywall, or the underside of carpets or carpet padding. Piping in walls may also be a source of mold, since they may leak (causing moisture and condensation).
Spores need three things to grow into mold: nutrients - cellulose (the cell wall of green plants) is a common food for indoor spores; moisture - to begin the decaying process caused by mold; and time - mold growth begins from 24 hours to 10 days after the provision of growing conditions.
Mold colonies can grow inside buildings, and the chief hazard is the inhalation of mycotoxins. After a flood or major leak, mycotoxin levels are higher even after a building has dried out.
Food sources for mold in buildings include cellulose-based materials such as wood, cardboard and the paper facing on drywall and organic matter such as soap, fabrics, and dust containing skin cells. If a house has mold, the moisture may originate in the basement or crawl space, a leaking roof or a leak in plumbing pipes. Insufficient ventilation may accelerate moisture buildup. Visible mold colonies may form where ventilation is poorest and on perimeter walls (because they are nearest the dew point).
If there are mold problems in a house only during certain times of the year, the house is probably too airtight or too drafty. Mold problems occur in airtight homes more frequently in the warmer months (when humidity is high inside the house, and moisture is trapped), and occur in drafty homes more frequently in the colder months (when warm air escapes from the living area and condenses). If a house is artificially humidified during the winter, this can create conditions favorable to mold. Moving air may prevent mold from growing, since it has the same desiccating effect as low humidity. Mold grow best in warm temperatures, 77 to 86 °F (25 to 30 °C), although growth may occur between 32 and 95 °F (0 and 35 °C).
Removing one of the three requirements for mold reduces (or eliminates) new mold growth: moisture; food for the mold spores (for example, dust or dander); and warmth since mold generally does not grow in cold environments.
HVAC systems can produce all three requirements for mold growth. The air conditioning system creates a difference in temperature, encouraging condensation. The high rate of dusty air movement through an HVAC system may furnish ample food for mold. Since the air-conditioning system is not always running, warm conditions are the final component for mold growth.
