What "IS" a Real Mold Inspection
What is a Mold Assessment?
I once again raise this question because I’ve been called in to provide yet another second opinion of a mold inspection that consisted of nothing more than the collection of a few air samples for mold spores.

When I’m asked to provide a second opinion on a mold inspection, I always want to talk with the original mold assessors. Given the chance, I will always take the opportunity to try to raise the awareness of the original mold assessor and inform them of the ASTM D-7338 and the process of providing a valuable mold assessment and report.
