Mold Overview for Home Inspections


The correct identification, notification, and remediation of mold growth in a home are of utmost importance, as it has enormous health and safety implications for homeowners and their families. With many severe, long-term health hazards, the inspector must be vigilant about both the problem and his or her own protection during the inspection. In this course, we will cover basic information about mold and review many of the mold strains an inspector might expect to find in a residence. We will also talk about various places to search out mold growth and methods of measurement and remediation.

This course is designed to fulfill three hours of home-inspection continuing-education credits. The curriculum is outlined to reinforce mold inspection training and knowledge. This is an overall advanced course for both residential and commercial buildings.
