The combination of warm weather and rain makes it easy for mold to grow in and on the homes of many residences and businesses in Richmond.

Richmond is a Californian city located in Contra Costa County. It is bordered by San Pablo, Pinole, El Cerrito and Albany. This city is the largest in the United States that has a Green Party Mayor.

Whether you find mold on the outside or inside of your property, it’s a good idea to have a mold inspection performed. Mold on the outside can be just as detrimental to your property as it being on the inside. Water is the main source of mold growth. When leaks last a long time, the moisture can lead to rapid mold growth, as well as softening in the infrastructure of your home. This can prove to be dangerous for you and your family. At Indoor-Restore Environmental Services, we have over 20 years of experience performing mold testing and mold inspection services on properties of all kinds throughout Richmond, CA. So whether you own or rent your home or business, we can investigate the issue for you.

When you hire our licensed Richmond experts to do a mold inspection, a visual mold inspection will be done first. If we suspect mold, samples will be taken from the air inside and outside of your home for comparison. We will also use swabs to collect samples from the surface areas inside your property. The samples are then sent to an accredited laboratory that is reputable. Once the results come in, we will give you a full report on what was found and what to do next if mold was found. It’s important to note that mold inspections can be used even when you don’t see mold.
