Mold is always a concern for Florida home buyers, you should understand that "mold tests" (mold air sampling) cannot tell you if a home has a mold problem. Mold air sampling results can be affected by many factors, simply vacuuming prior to air sampling can give a false "elevated" mold count. A visual inspection (assessment) is required to determine if there is a mold contamination in a home. Your mold inspection report must document any suspected mold and identify the source or cause of the mold growth. Mold tests (mold air sampling/air quality tests) can indicate that further investigation is needed and also are used to determine the extent of a mold contamination.
