A licensed mold inspector will also conduct a visual inspection which requires special instruments including moisture meters, hygrometers and other tools crucial in determining the root of the problem.The reality is that mold is all around us and every home has mold, therefore an in home mold test can come back saying you have mold growth, but that is meaningless since it is everywhere.
