One problem: Because mold infestations can greatly vary in size, the cost of a mold inspection can, too. In fact, the running total for an expert to examine your home can range anywhere from $400 to $3,000.

Some companies will offer free mold inspections, but do keep in mind that they often offer their services free of charge because they are hoping you will employ them if mold is detected.

A useful tip for helping to cut the cost of a mold inspection is to prepare ahead of time any questions you might have and to be ready to point out your areas of concern. This will help subtract a bit of time off of the length of their stay and save you some money.

When you are choosing a mold inspector, be sure research the companies you are thinking of selecting. Ask neighbors or friends for recommendations, and don't hesitate to ask questions when calling a company to inquire about their services.
