What Is a Mold Inspection and Why Do You Need One?

A mold inspection is a process where a certified inspector inspects a building to identify any areas that are prone to mold growth. The inspector will visually inspect the property for any signs of mold growth, such as discoloration or a musty smell. They will also use specialized equipment to measure the moisture levels in the air and surfaces, as well as take samples of any visible mold growth for testing.

Mold can cause a variety of health problems, including respiratory problems, allergic reactions, and other health concerns. It can also damage property and reduce the value of a home. That’s why it’s important to have your home inspected for mold on a regular basis.

If you suspect mold is growing in your home, contact iDry Columbus today to schedule a free mold inspection. We will help you identify and address any mold problems you may have.

Why Are Mold Inspections Important?

Mold thrives in environments with moisture, oxygen, and organic material. In buildings, common moisture sources are leaking pipes, condensation, and high humidity levels. If mold growth goes unnoticed, it can reduce indoor air quality and trigger health issues for inhabitants.

Conducting regular mold inspections is a proactive way to detect potential mold growth before it escalates into a serious problem. This not only spares you expensive remediation costs but also prevents potential health complications for your family or tenants. Moreover, periodic mold inspections ensure a healthier indoor environment, prevent property damage, and preserve your property’s value.

What Happens During a Free Mold Inspection?

During a free mold inspection by iDry Columbus, our certified inspector will conduct a thorough visual inspection of the property, including the basement, crawl spaces, attic, and other areas that are prone to mold growth. They will also use specialized equipment to measure moisture levels in the air and surfaces, as well as take samples of any visible mold growth for testing.

Once the inspection is complete, our inspector will provide you with a detailed report of their findings. If mold growth is detected, our inspector will provide you with recommendations for remediation and provide you with a quote for our mold remediation services. Our team at iDry Columbus is equipped to handle any mold remediation needs, including mold removal and remediation, air purification, and dehumidification.

Benefits of a Free Mold Inspection

At iDry Columbus, we believe that property owners should have access to free mold inspections to help protect their investments and ensure the health and safety of their occupants. Here are some of the benefits of a free mold inspection:

  • Early Detection: A mold inspection can help identify any potential mold growth before it becomes a bigger problem.
  • Peace of Mind: A mold inspection can give you peace of mind that your property is safe and healthy for your family or tenants.
  • Cost Savings: Early detection of mold growth can save you money on remediation costs and prevent damage to your property.
  • Health Benefits: A mold inspection can help prevent health issues for your family or tenants by identifying and removing any potential mold growth.
  • Better Indoor Air Quality: A mold inspection can help improve the indoor air quality of your property, making it a healthier environment for occupants.

Providing a thorough mold inspection is absolutely vital prior to testing or trying to solve the problem. Mold spores are so small and can find a home anywhere. If the source is not identified, the problem will simply keep returning.

Investigations take time and diligence. Our investigator needs to understand the source of the problem and the extent to give an accurate report.

You may find that throughout the process the investigator may ask extensively about water damage, dampness, and hard-to-get areas that may have suffered water damage. This simply helps determine the risk areas for mold growth.

Free mold inspections don’t always lead to the removal of mold but will rather show you the way forward. By the end of the investigation, our inspector will deliver a verbal report to you determining the cause, the problem, the risk as well as the size.

When it comes to protecting your property and ensuring the health and safety of your family or tenants, don’t hesitate to take action. A free mold inspection from iDry Columbus can help identify potential mold growth and provide you with the information and solutions you need to keep your property safe and healthy.

Mold found in an attic

Due to the fact that mold spores are minuscule and may remain in the room, we may also suggest using an air scrubber. This air filtration system recycles HEPA-filtered clean air back into the room.

From there, we may suggest small things that you can incorporate into the room or space to prevent mold from growing again, like using a dehumidifier. This will bring the moisture content down in the space. You can also look at antimicrobial paint to prevent any future growth.

BILLY B.BILLY B. ★★★★★ GoodCharlie B.Charlie B. ★★★★★ My experience with this company was outstanding! A professional crew came in and cleaned and repaired my water damaged bathroom efficiently and effectively.RosieRosie ★★★★★ Curtis and his crew were very professional and cleaned my basement flooding and left it like new. Very easy to work with and told us everything they would do and did it faster than I envisioned. Highly recommended!!Gene B.Gene B. ★★★★★ As a homeowner, my worst nightmare was having my basement flood. That nightmare came true a couple months ago during a heavy rain that left my basement carpet and walls soaked.Briefly attempting to do the repairs myself, I realised I was way out of my depth. I called iDry Columbus based on good reviews.To say I was anxious was an understatement, especially about the cost. Imagine my relief when their estimates were quite reasonable.Curtis and his team were in there minutes after I approved the work. They worked at my schedule, as I had to leave early one evening to pick up my daughter. The people on his team were fantastic and hard working!Most of all, the support was fabulous and patient. I can be neurotic in the best of times and having one's basement flooded is not the best of times. Kathy answered all of my questions, even after hours. I can't tell you how many times Curtis and her put my mind at ease.I hope my basement never floods again, but I'd call iDry Columbus to do the repairs if it should!Bill T.Bill T. ★★★★★ My family and I have been through many trials and tribulations. Since October we buried our Son and our 18 year old Grandson. I have been in and out of the Hospital x 2. My wife just discharged after 5 weeks + then this sump pump and heavy rain from a week ago that flooded the basement. I contacted 15 different remediation companies to no avail since 23rd March, 2020. Contacted iDry Columbus 28 March, 2020, and to my surprise they responded within 2 hours and are the answer to my prayers. Remarkable company, people, and employees. Electric went out for about 2 hours and they still didn't stop from working. They cleaned up and did a great job. The air in the house smells good now and doesn't burn your throat. Great People, Great Business.Ben Q.Ben Q. ★★★★★ Recently took water damage in my finished basement due to sump pump failure. iDry was the only mitigation company to quickly (less than 24 hrs) remove all my carpet, padding and damaged drywall. Spraying to prevent mold and removing the bad smell along with removing and drying all excess water. All the employees were very friendly. Hopefully I do not have to deal with a flooded basement again but if I do I will be using iDry!Dale S.Dale S. ★★★★★ We were in a bind from water damage. Another company told us they could help in another 3 days. Curtis at iDry told me he would be over in a few hours. As he described what iDry would do, he priced the work to me. It was much less than the company who couldn’t help for several more days. I asked when they could start and Curtis told me the crew was on the way. In less than an hour they were in the basement starting. Everyone was polite, friendly and worked like clockwork. They moved large items as pieces of carpet and padding were cut and removed. The floor was disinfected and furniture placed on styrofoam blocks. 9 fans were placed to create the airflow and a dehumidifier attached to a drain. I can’t express how delighted and relieved I am from start to finish. I highly recommend iDry to everyone. Hope I never need them again, but if I do I will call no one else but iDry. Thank you iDry!Lisa V.Lisa V. ★★★★★ IDRY is the most professional and dedicated group I have ever hired. From start to finish they exceeded my expectations. After having over 3 feet of water flood my basement, they came in and went over their plan to accomplish their work. They worked diligently for over 5 hours and finished with my complete satisfaction. I can't imagine where I would be tonight without your help. Thank you IDRY for cleaning up the mess and making my home safe for us.Lisa V.Lisa V. ★★★★★ I have never met a more professional and productive company. The most impressive group of people from the first phone call to the completed job. Very respectful and informative. Made us feel at ease during a very stressful time. I have placed their phone number in my favorites and they will definitely be the first and only company I contact for future needs. I highly recommend IDRY and will be telling everyone I meet about this company. ABSOLUTELY the BEST!Ryan M.Ryan M. ★★★★★ I've worked with this company and their over the past few years and have had to call them at all hours to clean up water damage to our properties. Very detailed and trustworthy. I'd recommend them to anyone for water extraction and mold cleanup. Thanks guys!Jeffrey S.Jeffrey S. ★★★★★ Carlyn L.Carlyn L. ★★★★★ I'm not really someone who leaves reviews often, but I was really blown away by the service.I called around 1:30pm, and a representative was at my house before 4:30pm. I felt the representative gave me a very honest assessment of the situation, and told me he didn't actually think this was an active leak. He showed me that there were already very small probe marks in the wall, where someone had previously monitored the moisture. He gave me some tips to determine if the leak is active, but he didn't want to tear up my (entire!) ceiling when the problem was likely not ongoing and may have already been resolved by the previous homeowner.I'll be taking his advice for now, and if I find the leak *is* active, I certainly know whom to call!Dava F.Dava F. ★★★★★ These guys are amazing and we can’t say enough positive words about them. We had a sump pump failure and a flooded finished basement as a result. They came quickly, were very professional and dealt with our mess. We won’t call anyone else.Jessica L.Jessica L. ★★★★★ Curtis and team are wonderful! We had a frozen pipe burst and water was everywhere. The first water restoration company we called ended up being a no call/no show. Thankfully Curtis and his team squeezed us in after hours even though they were already booked. Curtis and team did a thorough job cleaning up the mess. Our home was dry in no time. I would recommend Curtis and his team to anyone!Tonia D.Tonia D. ★★★★★ If I could give this company 10 STARS I would, without any hesitation! From the moment I called Curtis with iDry Columbus after a water leak, (that went through all 3 levels of our home) I felt like I was in the absolute BEST of hands. Our situation was greatly amplified because of also dealing with cancer and my loved ones immunocompromised state in the midst of all of this and iDry Columbus exceeded my expectations in every aspect. (By the way, I have very HIGH expectations) This team did an EXCELLENT job from beginning to end, which included air movers, dehumidifiers, hepa-filters, room containment, deconstruction, detailed cleaning and a PASS from the SEA hygienist company. The attention to detail and the constant consideration and efforts taken for our overall health was said to be, "just doing our job Miss". It is because of this teams superior service that I feel it will be safe to return to our home once the re-build is done, which by the way will be at the end of chemotherapy - having this kind of confidence in a company during this time in our lives has made this whole situation a little easier deal with. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend iDry Columbus!!!! I/We cannot express our gratitude enough - I am so grateful that iDry Columbus is the mitigation company that I chose to call that trying night!!!!!A B.A B. ★★★★★ As an OSU faculty member and former Sunday School teacher, I highly recommend iDry.I have lived in every region of the United States - - I went to law school in the very competitive northeast. Curtis Teets' and Jon's level of customer service and dedication to the customer is one of the best in the United States.iDry's estimates are honest and beat the competition. Their entire team is professional and respectful of your home.The other contractors working in my home were impressed by iDry's efficiency, thoroughness and knowledge.If you are a resident, contractor, or commercial property experiencing water damage - - please know Curtis and Jon are God's presence in the midst of a crisis.If you don't believe me, read Shelley Meyers' (Urban) testimony on this page.One of the best in the United States.DeeDee SDeeDee S ★★★★★ John arrived quickly and he gave us good advice to dry our basement at a good price so we were very happy to use iDry.Gregory D. B.Gregory D. B. ★★★★★ We had some minor water overflow in our basement that affected our carpet. John was professional and honest; He let me look at his infra red camera to see the extent of the water overflow — which turned out to be only about 15 square feet. He gave us a reasonable quote and didn’t charge for the call — he said the equipment could be brought very quickly — but we decided to simply dry it ourselves with our own fans and carpet cleaner because it was very such a small patch of water.Tyler W.Tyler W. ★★★★★ Ramon S.Ramon S. ★★★★★ I had a water line that failed at my home that was hard to identify. After several weeks of plumbers coming to the house they finally identified the problem. The next step was to bring in mitigation specialists to assess and dry out the damage. I was very concerned that the time it took the plumbers to find the issue would compromise the ability for the insurance company to cover the claim. They had start laying the ground work for what appeared to be what was going to happen, by indication that they may not cover it. I had half a dozen mitigation specialists come over to see what it would take to tear everything down. After meeting with all the companies I decided to go with IDry Columbus. The owner himself, Curtis Teets had come over to look over the work needed. This guy knows is stuff. He has many many years of experience that he brought to the table, both on the mitigation side and working with insurance companies. Truth be told, I was very worried whether the insurance company would cover it. With confidence Curtis assured my that it will be covered and everything will be fine. This was based on his years of experience working together with adjusters of many insurance companies in the area.His team came in and got the job done quickly. In addition to the mitigation work, IDry Columbus went over and beyond the scope of their work. They laid down a vapor barrier and addressed potential mold issues. These were things not covered by the insurance company, but he wanted to do things right. There was no extra charge for this work.It was an atypical experience with the insurance adjuster also. He had not been responsive to mine and Curtis' concerns and put together an estimate considerably below what Curtis had estimated. From day one, Curtis had assured me that he will get me the amount i deserve to properly repair the damage, despite my concerns of it being not covered. When things started to go south with the adjuster, Curtis continued to attempt to reach out and offer an opportunity to work together and compromise on a final estimate. He continued to reassure me that everything will be fine. He was even ready to bring attorneys to bear if the insurance company didn't do what was right.It turns out that the adjuster had not communicated any of our concerns to the Claims rep. We soon found out he was no longer with the insurance company, as my claim went on. With Curtis' guidance, we were able to pick up where the adjuster unprofessionally left, and get the ball rolling again on having the claim reviewed. All the while, Curtis' experience reassured me that I will get what I rightfully deserve to repair the work.When it was all said and done, Curtis of IDry Columbus was on point. The insurance company agreed to the higher and more fair estimate of repair. Beyond that Curtis offered to provide resources in the reconstruction of the damage. There was never any pressure, and a lot of reassurance in my experience with iDry Columbus. I would 100% recommend this company to others. There are still companies such as IDry Columbus that truly believe that the customer comes first.Kudos to the team that was sent to my house. They work quick, hard and on top of that, went over and beyond by informing of suspicious activity around my home while they were working. Much appreciated.I will use them again, and I may very well use some or all of the reconstruction resources they are offering.On a final note, as insurance companies can be at times, it too a while to cut a check... 3 checks so far as a matter of fact. And with the delay in my mortgage company's endorsement, IDry Columbus was ore than patient with getting paid. They understood that many of those steps were beyond my control and had been understanding getting paid weeks after the job was done.Thanks again, iDry ColumbusLiz K.Liz K. ★★★★★ I have had the pleasure of working with iDry over the last year in the restoration industry. I can tell you from first hand experience this company knows their stuff. They take pride in everything the do and a happy customer is their main focus after dealing with a water damage.Cynthia B.Cynthia B. ★★★★★ I am very pleased and impressed with the prompt response time and continuous follow up with both our staff and residents. They proved to be professional, reliable and to be a company of integrity. The problem was addressed quickly, and allowed us to serve our residents in a time of need. Thank you iDryshelley M.shelley M. ★★★★★ Curtis and his team were extremely fast, efficient, kind, and very very helpful with water in our basement. A quick call to him during a very strong rainstorm and he was here with his team in no time to start draining the water to minimize damage. He was also very helpful in helping us get the proper contractors in here to fix the issues. He has texted me several times during strong rainstorms to check on our basement. I appreciate his care and concern.Mike M.Mike M. ★★★★★ Been working with the company for 5 years now an they do a great job everything from bad mold jobs to 3 floor floods an always happy with the turn out wouldn't use anyone else great people an a great company to add to your contractor list!!!!Susi T.Susi T. ★★★★★ My experience with this company was fantastic..professional and knowledgeable people with answers to all my questions about our water damage cleanup..worked directly with our insurance company.
