The Mold inspector with proven knowledge and experience naturally will
do the best job.
Cape Coral homeowners should understand that experience is the key to the best
mold assessment. Radon & Mold Professionals has three of the most experienced FL licensed mold assessors (inspectors)
in SW Florida; each with at least 10 years experience. Mold is not a side job for us, we are not home inspectors.
We are Indoor Air Quality specialists, we leave the home inspections
to the generalists.
Mold Tests (sampling) are only part of an Cape
Coral or Naples Mold Inspection. A visual inspection, infrared thermal imaging check of structure, moisture
detection with moisture meters are just as important as the mold test (Mold-Air Sampling). Remember, Mold tests (air
sample collection) can be affected many varibles that can give a false positive or negative. Very few Home Inspectors
are certified for mold inspections by the ACAC which requires 2 years experience.

/ testing, Formaldehyde testing and radon testing for Cape Coral, Ft Myers, Sanibel Island and the surrounding areas.

Home inspectors and mold inspectors are two
different professions. Florida law requires mold inspectors to carry $1,000,000 liability and errors and omissions insurance.
No Experience requirement for home inspectors. Mold inspections are environmental issues and are not part of any "standard
of practice" for home inspectors. Florida law regulating Home Inspectors
and Mold Inspectors protects the consumer from unqualified mold inspectors.
A Professional mold inspector will determine if property has a mold/moisture problem, identify
and document the sources and write recommendations for corrections. (for the client and remediation company
if needed). ACAC Certified Indoor Environmentalist or a Certified Industrial Hygienist is
qualified to determine if a home has a mold problem and determine what should be done to correct mold problem
The job of the remediation
company is to clean up mold, not find it.
Mold inspectors should be certified by the American Indoor Air Quality Council. This is the only
environmental association that requires 2 years experience to be certified. Applicants
must also pass a test and be approved by a national certification board.All the other environmental associations
do not have experience requirements.Anyone can take a 1 day class, take a simple test and be "certified" as a mold
"Instant" certification is not available. Each of our certifications
is board-awarded, which means the IAQ Council certification board reviews each applicant's file, including the application,
examination score, documented field experience and attention to application details before awarding certification. All
experience may be verified before the applicant's file is sent to the certification board. This type of certification
process is worthy of the time it takes... up to 6 weeks following the study/review course and successful examination."
Many Labs and organizations offer training and certifications. New national standard
1100 approved by ANSI, American National Standards Institute March 9, 2009 in Washington DC only recognizes 3 certifying bodies.

offers the Certified Industrial Hygienist, CIH designation. 2. The American
Indoor Air Quality Council, (AmIAQC) which offers several designations:

Professionals which offers the Certified Safety Professional, CSP designation

Deciding if a home has a mold issue based only on lab analysis that
can be flawed because of any number of reasons should be avoided. Mold air sampling
is only a small part of a complete mold assessment.
