Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. was referred to us by our realtor for our home inspection. Our inspector was Cary Cooper. He really took the time to answer all of our questions about his findings. We didn't feel rushed or that any question was too silly. He gave us peace of mind with a few of our concerns and was honest, even if we weren't to thrilled with the news. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely use (and refer)  Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. in the future for any inspection needs.

Atlanta property inspections gave me a very competitor quote and stuck to it for final pricing. They were able to get someone out to do the inspection so quickly. Frank and James were very thorough and helpful during the process they encouraged me to look at what they found, the good and bad, so I knew exactly what I am buying.  I couldn't have asked for a better inspection experience!

Jeremy was the best to work with! He was on time,  very thorough in his explanations of his findings, and took time with my clients to make sure he answered all of their questions. He was detailed, and provided follow up when we needed additional questions answered. He went above and beyond! Best, quality, customer service I’ve seen in a long time! I’ll recommend him and Atlanta Property Inspections every time!

WOW! I can't even make this story up. In this very crazy market (June 2021) it seemingly takes 2 week closing (sometimes with *0* days due diligence!) to purchase a home. Anyway, Frank came recommended by another very reputable inspector, and I was fortunate he came!! The home we were looking at for my mother was a 1975 build and within 1 hour of the inspector being there a FIRE from an electrical panel broke out! Frank contained the fire, and was SO calm, had his team address the matter, was in touch with the agent and homeowner. He said in over 20+ years of him inspecting homes nothing like this had ever happened. Anyway the inspection was VERY thorough and Frank handled all matters very professionally. We will be working with Frank and his team on any home inspections in the future. I highly recommend!

Atlanta Property Inspections came to do a pre-purchasing inspection on a home my husband and  I plan to buy! We had a very short due diligence period, but that was no issue for these guys. They fit us in their schedule on very short notice and were such a pleasure to work with. Cary and Riley came to do the inspection and did a fantastic job walking us through the inspection to let us know what they found, and suggestions on how to fix all of the issues! Shout out to Cary, for answering all of our questions and having such a great personality! We truly appreciate you guys taking the time to help us through such a very stressful time. We HIGHLY recommend this company!

Have used Atlanta Property Inspections several times for my buyers.  Their team is always very thorough and educational for the new home owners.  Much information is shared about past/current codes, potential issues and how to have the issues repaired.  I will continue to use Atlanta Property Inspectors for future inspections, and my clients have been very happy with their services as well!

Dustin was absolutely amazing. He did such a thorough job and was super friendly and helpful in explaining everything to me as a first-time homeowner. Highly recommend this company! Very timely and professional throughout the entire process as well!

This was our first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections, Frank Cooper was the lead inspector and he was inspecting a new construction one bedroom plus den in Alpharetta for a buyer client of ours. The inspection report was both detailed and comprehensive. We have tried out a few premium home inspection companies over the past year, looking for a good additional inspection resource, and based on our experience with Frank Cooper, I think we have found it.

How to Test for Mold Exposure in Your Home?

Mold exposure is a common problem that homeowners from all over the world experience. The presence of mold can cause health problems and damage the house. So, detecting is crucial. However, many homeowners don’t know the way to test the mold in their house. That’s why, throughout this article, we will go through ways to test for mold exposures in your house, like visual inspections, using a test kit, getting a medical examination, working with an inspection company, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help.

Visual Inspections

If you would like to see whether your house has mold or not, the first and best step is to walk around your house near locations of water and see whether or not there are any molds. Try to look at the ceilings, walls, and floors, especially the corners. Look for any color changes, including black, brown, or green patches. Lastly, make sure to pay extra attention to places that contain much moisture.

Testing Mold Using A Test Kit

If you have looked around the house and can see no visible differences but are still unsure whether you have mold inside your house, try using a test kit.

  1. Close any windows and doors in a room.
  2. Set up everything listed in your test kit. Make sure to clean the environment and your hands before the procedure.
  3. Follow the steps and leave the petri dish alone for several days.
  4. Seal it and put it in a dark place.
  5. Observe whether there is mold in your house and consult a professional service.

Get a Medical Examination To Understand Your Exposure

Another interesting way to see if you were exposed to mold in your house is to get a medical examination. If you suspect you are being exposed to mold in your house and have symptoms of breathing difficulty, sneezing, coughing, and itchy eyes, consult your doctor and list every symptom you have. Through certain tests, they will confirm whether or not you have an allergy to mold and how to fix it.

Working With An Inspection Company

Getting a test kit, a medical examination, and making a visual inspection can be time-consuming. If you would like to have the process go faster with certain results, working with a professional service is the right choice for you. Experienced home inspection companies will collect samples and send them to the laboratory for analysis. You will get accurate results, and they will guide you on how you can fix it.
