Standards of Practice

With Pearl Inspection Services, LLC, the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) has developed the Indoor Air Quality Certified® (IAQ-C) program, which includes the IAC2 certification for mold inspections. This certification sets guidelines for mold inspectors to follow during inspections.

As an inspector in, my responsibilities include identifying visible mold or conditions that could lead to mold growth. I conduct a thorough inspection of both the interior and exterior of the property, including the roof, crawl spaces, basements, and attics. To detect moisture intrusion, water damage, or high humidity, I use specialized equipment like moisture meters. If necessary, I may collect mold samples for laboratory analysis.

After the inspection, I provide you with a comprehensive written report, detailing my findings, conclusions, and remediation recommendations. It's crucial to remember that as an inspector, I won't engage in mold remediation services.

The IAC2 Mold Inspection SOP requires me to have knowledge in microbiology, building science, and environmental health. I should also have a basic understanding of mold remediation principles and be able to recommend appropriate remediation procedures.

While the IAC2 Mold Inspection SOP is a valuable guide, it doesn't cover every aspect of mold inspection and remediation. If you suspect mold growth on your property, I recommend consulting a certified mold inspector and licensed mold remediation professional for expert advice. Your health and safety are my top priority at Pearl Inspection Services, LLC!
