This article is an in depth exploration of the concepts “Test Only” and “Conflict of Interest” in the mold services industry.
Property Managers need to perform a certain amount of due diligence when investigating the frequent occurrence of tenants who complain about mold. Sometimes there is a problem, other times there is not. A test only company will perform an inspection of the unit, collect moisture readings, and collect samples to confirm or rule out a mold problem. A certified mold inspector will usually tell you if there is no problem. A full service mold removal (Test and Remove) company will usually tell you there definitely is a problem.
