Mold Inspections

Margate Home InspectorLongport Home Inspector

In addition to home inspections, we offer Indoor Air Quality inspections and Mold Inspections for our Clients that require an extra level of information or just want the peace of mind knowing exactly what pollutants are present in the property.

When a new client calls me and says " I want to know if there is mold in my home" I just say, sure there is. What they really want to know is if the home has EXCESS MOLD. A home won't have an excess mold problem unless the home has an excess moisture problem. All excess mold growth problems in an indoor environment are related to moisture issues. It's that simple. Fix the moisture problem and you won't have an excess mold problem.

A home that has had a moisture problem can have excess mold, sometimes hidden from plain view. If the quantity of mold present is large enough these areas can be damaged by the mold growth. All fungal growth feeds on organic matter and slowly destroys the surfaces that it is growing on over time. If these colonies of mold become large they can produce enough airborne mold spores that can cause some people allergic reactions.

Here is what the HUD says about MOLD

Lots of Home Inspectors have gotten into the "MOLD TESTING" field but is simply collecting some air samples during a Home Inspection really a Mold Inspection? No it is not. Sampling is only a small part of a true Mold Inspection, and sometimes it is not even necessary. Can your Home Inspector interpret the lab analysis and tell you why you have a higher number of a certain type of mold spores in the home on a given day? Not without all the other information that goes along with an actual Mold Inspection he can't. 

Key Inspection Service has the experience to perform these inspections and give you accurate information you can trust. Contact us for information, or read more at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Stucco Inspections

in addition to home inspections, we offer Stucco Inspections and EIFS (Dryvit) inspections for the clients who own or who are buying a home with a stucco exterior. We know that people want to be sure that the property that they are buying or selling doesn't have hidden damage or will leave them stuck with costly repairs.Is Your Stucco Home Moisture Free? Contact us about a Moisture Free Warranty for your home.

Moisture damage is the #1 cause of insurance claims in the USA and excess moisture is the biggest enemy of a healthy home. A home with a masonry exterior, whether it be Stucco, Brick veneer, applied cultured stone or EIFS face certain challenges that other homes may not have due to the fact that a moisture damaged home with a masonry exterior may appear to be fine, but have hidden damage under the surface. The only way to know for sure is to have an experienced inspector perform a detailed evaluation that follows strict industry standards.

Key Inspection Service has the experience to perform these complex masonry stucco inspections and give you accurate information regarding the condition below the surface. While other home inspectors tend to shy away from performing these inspections and just tell you the home needs "further analysis by a professional", Key Inspection Service actually provides you with these services and is able to report our findings in an easy to understand format.
