Orange, CA Mold Inspection Experts

Orange, not to be mistaken with Orange County, in which Orange resides, boasts some of the oldest homes in California. Many of the beautiful Orange homes in its Old Town District date back to the early 1900s. While this gives each of these homes its own unique character, charm, and history, it can also lead to some unwanted issues. Lead paint and mold are just two of the environmental factors that can cause these dream homes to end up as nightmares.

You don’t have to look far to see how untreated and undiagnosed home environmental issues can cause harm. Most people already know about the potentially dangerous side effects lead paint can have when ingested, but that is just one of a myriad of home issues. Take a quick glance at the news or read the Guaranteed Property Inspection’s blog to see how mold can lead to asthma, depression, and even student virus death.

Certified Mold Inspection Services in Orange, CA

State of the Art Mold Inspection and Testing

Making sure your home is contaminant free is especially important in homes built before the 1940s. Mold can find its way into your house from a cracked fireplace or slightly ajar damper. It can be transmitted through the air or brought in through the gutters. Older homes have more unique designs, which adds to their charm but also creates more unique scenarios in which mold can fester. That’s why a comprehensive mold investigation and mold testing on a semi-regular basis, even if you do not see visible mold, can be a good idea.

Each of Guaranteed Property Inspection’s comprehensive mold inspections for homes in Orange, CA includes a client interview before a visual inspection. Then, our ACAC certified inspectors conduct moisture meter testing and thermal imaging. We test using direct samples, air quality testing, and DNA / ERMI / SIM Mold Screen Testing, all of which is to say that if you’ve got mold, we’ll find it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Exposure to contaminants in the air can affect everyone’s health, not just people who live in big, polluted cities. We should all care about contaminants that could worsen our health and ability to breathe.

Ignoring the signs of contaminated air can lead to many of the health concerns listed above, and in serious cases, even hospitalization or premature death. Air quality is certainly not something anyone should take lightly.

Poor indoor air quality can cause a variety of negative health side effects, including:

  • Irritated eyes, noses, and throats
  • Shortness of breath
  • Aggravated asthma
  • Respiratory problems
  • Cardiovascular issues
  • Heart concerns

The longer a person is exposed to and breathing air pollutants, the more severe these health consequences can be. In general, children and seniors are the most at-risk, as well as people with pre-existing allergies or respiratory conditions.

An asbestos survey is required prior to any demolition or renovation of any structure no matter the year the structure was built. The only exception to the survey requirement is the renovation activity of residential single-unit dwellings (houses) in which less than 100 square feet of the surface area of intact (not damaged) material is removed or stripped. ACAC or Certified Site Surveillance Technician (CSST) is trained to be able to identify homogenous-suspect materials and can presume or assume the material is Asbestos-Containing Material (ACM).

The inspector should ensure that their inspection and inspection report will meet all applicable requirements in your state, if applicable, and will comply with a well-recognized standard of practice and code of ethics. You should be able to request and see a copy of these items ahead of time and ask any questions you may have. If there are any areas you want to make sure are inspected, be sure to identify them upfront.

Related experience in construction or engineering is helpful, but is no substitute for training and experience in the unique discipline of home inspection. If the inspection is for a commercial property, then this should be asked about as well.

If your home has been tested positive for mold and a proper comprehensive mold investigation has been completed by an ACAC accredited mold inspector/hygenist, you must contact an ACAC/IICRC certified mold remediation/removal contractor to review our report, make a site visit and provide you a detailed written estimate for work to be performed. Once you have hired an accredited remediation contractor and the contractor notifies you that the work is complete and areas are ready for post-remediation clearance, you must retain the hiring ACAC certified mold inspection company to inspect and re-assess the area(s) to ensure all mold has been removed successfully. An indoor air quality sample must be taken from outside of the property, and one within the specified containment to ensure that the air quality is within a normal fungal ecology, and the build back of the areas may begin. Once air sample analysis has been returned by an AIHA accredited third-party laboratory indicating a normal fungal ecology, you will be provided a clearance report certifying that remediation efforts were completed successfully and to industry standards.

Danny of Guaranteed Property Mold Inspection was highly professional and reliable to work with. Danny does a thorough job of inspection and is patient to explain things. Build back time was urgent for us that he took extra steps to provide results amidst a busy schedule so we can arrange the next step for reconstruction.

I definitely would use them again.

Joe was referred to me by several friends who had dealt w mold issues and they said he was the best in the game. They were right. Joe was super friendly, incredibly knowledgeable, and allowed me to feel like I’m in trustworthy hands with my inspection and next steps. I’ve worked with other inspection companies in the past and Joe is on another level with reliability and expertise.
I can’t recommend him and Guaranteed Properties enough!
