Mold inspections should be a concern to Naples, Bonita Springs and Ft Myers homebuyers.
Homebuyer should realize that many homes are vacant much of the year in our area because of the large number of seasonal
residents. Storms can cause water intrusions and power outages, both can result in mold growth in homes not monitored by owner
or "homewatch" company. Problems occur when inexperienced "mold assessors" perform mold tests and claim
a home has "elevated mold counts" and suggest you need a mold remediator. No one should label a home as mold
contaminated using just mold air samples. Mold air samples can be wrong for many reasons; mold problems can ONLY be
determined with a visual inspection to identify the location and source of the mold contamination.
Elevated mold spore
count alone only,suggests the need for a mold assessment not remediation. A mold assessment / inspection report will not only
document where the mold is but what caused it and include recommendations for corrections, often called protocols.
Radon testing since 1999, indicates to us that about one out of two Naples or Ft Myers condos and
high rise units have elevated radon levels.
We have performed over 20,000 radon tests in our area which
includes all of Collier and Lee Counties. Elevated radon levels in a home is a serious health concern (#2 cause of lung
cancer) but is best considered just another home repair. Elevated radon levels can be easily lowered by a Florida DOH certified radon mitigation business.

or later the inspector will miss a "wet spot". Mold needs moisture to grow (food and water). Infrared cameras and
moisture meters are essential to identify "wet spots" that can grow mold. Your Naples home will almost always have
mold spores in the indoor air but like most living things they need moisture to grow (food & water). Mold growth in your
home should be avoided.

Our Bonita Springs, Naples Florida licensed
mold assessors (inspectors) always use infrared cameras during a mold inspection, some inspectors charge extra when
they use their infra red camera, we never do. We always use the cameras to do the best job.
Naples and Bonita Springs consumers should understand that "Mold Testing" (Air Sampling for Mold) may
be useful as part of a mold assessment, but it is never a substitute for a thorough visual inspection.

What is a mold inspection (assessment)?
"a mold assessment is to determine the sources, locations and extent of mold growth in a building, to determine
the condition(s) that caused the mold growth, and to enable the assessment consultant to prepare a mold remediation
you order a mold inspection and just get lab analysis for a report? You had a mold test! A mold test analysis is only part
of a mold inspection Report. This is not a reliable method of determining whether the property has a mold issue and does not
identify any sources or information about why there is an elevated spore count. A mold cleanup company needs a complete report
