Reliability Integrity Accuracy
SD Mold Inspection performs inspections only.
We are not a remediation or treatment company. We have no vested interest in finding mold that would require expensive treatment. We do not receive sales commissions from remediation companies. We perform professional, industry standard mold inspections using only Professional Scientists who are also Certified Mold Inspectors. We will recommend remediation only when it is really required.
If remediation is required, we will refer you to a qualified professional remediation company that we have personally reviewed. SD Mold Inspection will write a remediation Scope of Work that will guide the remediation company, so that you will only pay for the treatment you actually need.
We can be reached at any time at (619) 489-7684 to answer your questions or discuss your particular situation.

Take swab samples of any visible mold, or if no visible mold is present
Take air samples in areas of concern.
A standard mold inspection includes a visual inspection, air sampling, checking for moisture via IR thermal camera and a moisture meter, a full report from both myself and from the laboratory, and if a mold issue does exist, a scope of work outlining what needs to be done to remedy the problem. The outdoor sample will always be included to establish a reference or baseline for normal mold levels in an area, that are then compared to the indoor samples.
INSPECTION & FEES
A standard mold inspection is $375 for one indoor air sample and one outdoor reference sample. This fee includes a visual inspection, moisture assessment using a moisture meter and IR thermal imaging, lab fees for the sample analysis, next day results, and a full report.
For larger houses or commercial properties, the number of samples will vary. Additional samples after the first two are charged at the rate of $75 each.
Turnaround time for sample analysis by a certified lab is 24 working hours.
Same day analysis (M-F) costs an additional $100 per sample or same day analysis on weekends costs an additional $125 per sample.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I had a client in escrow and we suspected there might be a mold problem. I called a few places and then I found Josh at SD Mold Inspections. He was very nice to work with and his pricing was simple and to the point. I made the appointment and he was on time and had the results back to us promptly. He knows his job well and I will definitely use him in the futures and would not hesitate to refer him to anyone I know. Thanks again Josh and keep up the good work!!
Josh recently performed a mold inspection for a property that we were buying. He did an amazing job and gave a clean, honest report. In fact he left me a message summarizing the inspection and sent over the detailed report next day. Setting up the appointment was easy, no hassle. His website was actually quite impressive too; it had most of the information I needed as a first time user (pricing, types of samples, etc.). Keep up the good work!!
Courteous and competitive, they give you clear results without pushing for follow on work. Unlike many inspectors, they are not involved in repair and are happy to give you just the facts.
