Preliminary Mold Screen

Green Scene Home Inspections is proud to be able to offer this valuable service to our customers. We can conduct a Preliminary Mold Screen as part of your Standard Home Inspection, or come out at a later date/time to conduct the screen independently. This economical option for mold testing is a great first step to take when you have concerns about this important safety issue.

The Preliminary Mold Screen consists of the following: 

  •  Evaluation of a limited area of concern as expressed by the customer (or at the recommendation of the Home Inspector) conducted by Texas Licensed Mold personnel through our relationship with a Licensed Mold Consulting company.

  •  A physical examination of the potentially affected area(s), approximately 30 minutes.

  • Representative air sampling (indoor and outdoor) for possible fungal contaminants.

  • Representative surface sampling of any suspect fungal material.

  • Submission of samples to a Texas Licensed Mold Laboratory for analysis.

  • A copy of the written lab report, delivered to the customer within 48 hours of services performed. Provides information on what, if any, mold type(s) are present on the surface and at what level (spores per cubic meter) they are present in the air.

  • Telephone consultation with the customer to explain findings and provide guidance onany further steps suggested.
