(Free with IKG) Mold Inspection
So the process normally starts out with identifying the mold. You’ll typically see affected mold growth areas on wood surfaces or air ducts. This will be the first step in finding the mold. Next, you will have to identify what kind of mold the affected area contains. This can be more like a guessing game if you don’t have the experience of a trained professional.
If you are going to need to get the problem removed anyway, it is best to start with a professional mold inspection. This will save you a lot of the guessing game and save you time to prevent further mold damage. With a professional mold inspection, they will normally check the square feet of the infected area and come up with a price & process for removal. ***Note while IKG Mold inspections are free of charge, most companies will charge for the initial inspection.

Now that the problem has been identified, it is time to remove it altogether! Hopefully, after the mold inspection, you will have a good idea of the cost to remove the mold. Now you may read the Center for Diese Control’s mold removal piece and decide to start a DIY black mold removal process at your place, but it will only be dangerous and expensive. You will end up spending more on cleaning products, garbage bags, and mold cleaner than just paying a mold removal specialist.

This can become expensive fast, and may lead to further home property maintenance in the future. Don’t put yourself or your family at risk trying to fight a mold problem on your own!
