My client used the company for their home inspection during their due diligence period. Jeremy and his partner were very kind and accommodating with answering questions. The report was very thorough and I like that they also note positive things about the homes in their report as well and not just what's wrong with the house. You can read the good and the bad.

The inspector was really thorough and was patient in explaining to me what he was observing. He showed me where the shutoff valve was for the water and gave recommendations on various things. The report that was provided made sense and pictures were taken of some things that were found. The inspector was also very personable which put me at ease about asking questions. Thank you, Alex and Atlanta Property Inspections!

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!

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.

Dustin was very knowledgeable and friendly and made my client feel confident in his explanations.  He was quick to point out the positives of the home he was inspecting.  His report was delivered within 18 hours of the inspection and had plenty of photos and very easy explanations in laymen's terms. I highly recommend Atlanta Property Inspections.

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.

I called several companies for quotes, and I felt that Atlanta Property Inspections was the most welcoming!  Thereafter, I had a wonderful experience at the inspection. My inspector was thorough, kind, and willing to explain things and answer my questions on site.  He was very knowledgeable and very friendly.  I am glad I did not skip the inspection for this 950 square foot condo, and the review has been very helpful, during my due diligence period in evaluating this potential home.

Mold Inspection vs. Mold Assessment

Home is a comfortable and safe space for many people, and considering how much time most of us spend in it, you should feel secure and at ease in your own house. Mold is one of the unfortunate intruders that inhabit a lot of homes. If ignored, mold is an environmental risk that can lead to a number of significant health issues and damage to your house. Since mold can grow and spread in as little as 24 to 48 hours. You need to take immediate action to treat any mold issues. Mold assessment and mold inspection are the two main approaches for controlling the growth of mold in your house. Even though they sound pretty similar to each other, they are a bit different. In this article, we will go over both of these procedures.

Mold Inspections

A licensed home inspector conducts a comprehensive visual assessment of a property during a mold inspection. The inspector carefully examines the property for evidence of dampness, water damage, and apparent mold development, especially in places that are susceptible to mold growth, including attics, crawl spaces, and basements. Sometimes, the inspector utilizes specialist instruments like thermal imaging cameras to find hidden moisture concerns. The principal goal of a mold inspection is to detect any mold issues and offer suggestions for their resolution.

Mold Assessment

Professional mold testing, in comparison to mold inspections, is a much more detailed process because it  involves taking samples from the house and having them examined in a lab. Specialized techniques are applied to the samples in order to identify the kind and presence of mold. In addition to being able to pinpoint the origin and scope of the growth, this procedure can yield a higher degree of accuracy than just an inspection. Sometimes, if a homeowner notices mold during inspection, they may advise for a mold assessment. Gathering air samples from various parts of a house and testing them for the presence of mold are the steps involved in indoor air quality examinations. Samples from every room in the house will normally be taken by the inspector, and the precise kinds and quantities of mold will be examined in the labs.

How Do Mold Inspection And Testing Differ From Each Other?

To summarize, the act of evaluating a mold issue and figuring out the degree of contamination is known as mold inspection. To determine its type and to confirm its existence, assesment is used. Typically, a mold inspection is carried out before mold testing.
