Frequently Asked Questions

There are many state and national associations for home inspectors. Request to see their membership ID and perform whatever due diligence you deem appropriate.

This is a valuable educational opportunity, and an inspector’s refusal to allow this should raise a red flag. Never pass up this opportunity to see your prospective home through the eyes of an expert.

If a general home inspector identifies areas that may have actual visible mold or areas of suspected mold, they will most likely red flag the suspect area and consult their client to have the area(s) evaluated further by a properly certified mold inspection firm. If this is the case with your home, do not panic! We can come to your property and provide a site assessment of the areas of concern and confirm whether mold contamination is present or not. If the laboratory returns a report that shows that fungi were not detected during analysis, then we can provide a report stating that the suspect areas do not contain any findings of concern via our investigation and data received by the accredited laboratory. If the laboratory confirms that, in fact, mold contamination is present, then we will provide you with a detailed report which includes a scope of work so you as the client know exactly what to expect for a successful mold remediation/removal. We also can provide our clients with a list of properly certified mold remediation companies.

Mold testing cost is dependent on many different factors. For instance, types of mold testing that may be required and how many different samples are needed depends on what type of condition the property is in, has there been current or active leaks? Have there been any water losses? The only way to answer these questions is by completing a comprehensive mold inspection on site. This allows the hygienist to pinpoint and locates each individual area of potential contamination. The comprehensive inspection is the key component in determining the source of the contamination and the presence of mold. The site assessment also allows us to develop a mold sampling protocol that will best fit the client's needs. Comprehensive mold inspection cost depends on the square footage of your property. With that vital information, we can provide clear pricing to complete your mold inspection and mold testing.

People may be exposed to asbestos in their workplace, their communities, or their homes. If products containing asbestos are disturbed, tiny asbestos fibers are released into the air. When asbestos fibers are breathed in, they may get trapped in the lungs and remain there for a long time. Over time, these fibers can accumulate and cause scarring and inflammation, which can affect breathing and lead to serious health problems. Asbestos has been classified as a known human carcinogen (a substance that causes cancer) by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer. According to IARC, there is sufficient evidence that asbestos causes mesothelioma (a relatively rare cancer of the thin membranes that line the chest and abdomen), and cancers of the lung and larynx. Mesothelioma is the most common form of cancer associated with asbestos exposure. Asbestos exposure may also increase the risk of asbestosis, an inflammatory condition affecting the lungs that can cause shortness of breath, coughing, and permanent lung damage. 

Symptoms related to poor air quality exposure vary from person to person. In most cases, individuals with a weakened immune system, immuno-compromised, autoimmune disorder, asthma, cancer, or allergies show worse exposure symptoms compared to a healthy individual. However, prolonged exposure to mold contaminants and toxins can have adverse health effects on anyone exposed to it. Some exposure symptoms include respiratory distress, coughing, skin rash, sneezing, sinusitis, difficulty swallowing, choking, spitting up (vomiting) mucous, Hypersensitivity pneumonitis, Asthmatic signs; wheezing, shortness in breath, coughing, burning in lungs, etc., Irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, diarrhea, sharp abdominal pains, stomach lesions, Memory loss; brain fog, slurred speech, Thyroid irregularities, Headaches, Chronic fatigue, Reproductive system complications, and Seizures, inadvertent body jerking, twitching.

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!
