Mold Inspection

Professional mold inspections come in two flavors: a visual inspection and remediation estimate performed by a mold remediation company, or testing and a list of remediation recommendations conducted by an “independent” assessor. 

Mold Inspection:

Your Mold Inspection Options in Florida

From an Independent Assessor

There are three states (NY, FL, TX) with policies that recommend an independent mold inspection be conducted by a stand-alone inspection company.  In Florida the policy applies if you have more than 10 sq ft of visible mold growth, or if it is for a non-residential property.  

An independent inspection typically starts around $400 and can be as much as several thousands dollars.  This cost variation is primarily due to the number of swab and air tests required to properly assess the extent of mold infestation.  The independent assessor then writes up recommended protocols based on their visual inspection and the test results from the third-party lab analysis. 

The policy was designed to empower property owners and renters with unbiased test data and recommendations to make the best possible decision for their restoration needs. 

From a Remediation Company

Most remediation companies are capable of performing a thorough inspection and necessary testing. With this option, you get…

  • a remediation cost  estimate during your first visit
  • one fewer visit than if you use an independent assessor
  • potentially avoid spending money on unnecessary testing
  • the remediation company recommending themselves

You are not required by law to use an independent assessor if you are a commercial location or have mold that has visibly spread beyond 10 square feet.  There are pros and cons to both options and the choice is ultimately up to you.  

Our take is if you have good reason to trust the remediation company, then this is a very good option.


Certified by the State of Florida, our seasoned technicians have completed hundreds of inspections with the goal of always achieving 5-star customer satisfaction. We’re dedicated to providing top-notch mold assessments for businesses and residents in Nassau, Duval and St. John’s counties.

It is not required, but recommended by Florida state policy.

For commercial customers

Our dry fog is often the most cost-effective solution for businesses looking to minimize building downtime. Due to the exclusive rights we have to our patented dry fog protocol, business and governmental organizations frequently seek us out for our expertise in demolition, clean-up, and mold treatment .

To satisfy Florida state policy that recommends that all businesses first hire an assessor before choosing a remediation company, we can make recommendations on who we’ve found to be the most trustworthy, independent and certified mold assessors in the business

Keep in mind that there is no law that you have to comply with this policy.

For our residential customers

For instances where there’s less than 10 square feet of contiguous mold, we can comply with state policy and both inspect AND perform necessary remediation quickly and easily.

For mold infestation greater than 10 sq ft, spending $400 with an independent assessor then waiting three days for test results to return from an external lab may comply with policy, but it isn’t required

Not every mold clean-up job needs an officially certified inspection. if mold growth is obvious from a visual inspection, then hiring a remediation company immediately will get your property back to health quicker than going the independent assessor route first, then hiring a remediation company afterwards.

Most of the time, mold testing or air quality tests are not necessary when dealing with visible mold in a residential setting. Florida state regulations only mandate that these assessments be done if there is 10 contiguous square feet or more. However, should you choose to proceed directly into remediation without further testing that is entirely up to you, and compliance with a state regulation is not required.

Two things to consider… if you have a health issue from the mold and fixing it is dependent on knowing the type of mold and extent of exposure, then mold testing is a good idea.  Your insurance company may require the testing data for any claim. 

Otherwise, investing money in an inspection where mold is clearly present is  typically unnecessary and can be avoided.

For residential and commercial customers a mold test processed by a trusted third-party certified lab is only one $199 per test. However we do offer a slight discount for a large number of tests.
