There are many things to consider when you are planning your mold inspection. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Methods Used to Prepare Mold Testing Cost Estimates
Since mold testing is straight forward, a per sample approach is commonly used. The specialist will determine how many mold samples need to be collected and tested. If the inspector finds mold that needs to be removed, the specialist will likely provide you an additional estimate on the cost of remediation.

Reasons for Mold Inspection Price Variances
Mold specialists use a combination of methods to evaluate and price projects. They take several factors into consideration that impact the cost of the project, including:
Type of Testing. Test type is the primary cost consideration. Certain types of testing like mold air testing and stain testing are more costly than others like mold cultures and HVAC mold testing.
Visible mold. If the mold is visible, an inspection is probably not necessary, and sample collection and testing is most likely the only consideration.
Hard-to-reach-areas. If the mold is in areas that are hard to reach, there may be additional costs.
Mold type and size. If the inspector thinks that there are more dangerous types or large amounts of mold, there may be additional costs due to the increased levels of caution needed to inspect the home.
Geography. If you are in a high cost area or in an area that is difficult to reach (more travel time), then costs will generally be higher.
