What Are the Most Common Types of Mold?
We look for a wide variety of common molds during our mold inspections. If left untreated, these molds have the potential to cause serious health risks. Some of the most common molds include: Alternaria, Aspergillus, Aureobasidium, Chaetomium, Cladosporium, Fusarium, Penicillium, Stachybotrys Chartarum, Serpula Lacrymans, Trichoderma, and Ulocladium. Check out our “Common Types of Mold” page to learn more about these mold types. If you’re concerned about the possibility of black mold in your home, learn more at our page of Black Mold FAQ.

What Is an Indoor Environmental Professional?
Since there are no federal regulations on mold, it’s highly recommended to also have an independent Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP) perform a mold inspection and testing of your entire space to uncover any additional or hidden areas of mold throughout your structure and ensure that all areas of mold are addressed and remediated. An IEP’s job is to assess the fungal ecology of properties, systems, and contents and work to create a sample strategy, sample the indoor environment, interpret laboratory data, and determine the condition of the mold issue.
Once the IEP concludes this status, the scope of work can be established. This pre-remediation assessment is needed so our team can see how to tackle your home or business’s unique remediation needs. IEP’s are very helpful with mold remediation due to their extensive knowledge and willingness to bring clarity to every project.
We can recommend an independent IEP to perform a mold inspection as an additional way to help ensure that your structure and its occupants are safe from mold.
