An inspection costs between $500 and $2,500 for residential or commercial spaces, regardless of the type of moisture or mold a pro might find. The mold inspection and testing may uncover several different types of mold:

  • Cladosporium
  • Aspergillus
  • Penicillium
  • Ulocladium
  • Acremonium
  • Stachybotrys
  • Alternaria.

Black Mold Testing; Black mold can be one of  the most toxic and can lead to asthma and other serious health problems. It has a greenish-black hue and should be removed immediately.

If you don’t take care of this problem, serious health issues might follow. Typical symptoms include chronic coughing and sneezing, eye irritation, fatigue, and headaches. In more severe cases, exposure can lead to nausea, vomiting, lung bleeding, and even death.
Be sure your inspector is certified by ACAC; go to to verify certification. ACAC is the only national certification organization that is valid for mold inspecting. Also beware of low ball quotes; these inspectors try to up sell you on unneeded additional mold testing costs. Any inspector that also offers to remove mold should be avoided, since this is a conflict of interest.
