A standard home inspection typically does not include 
comprehensive mold testing or 
inspection. Home inspectors are primarily focused on assessing the structural integrity and 
major systems of a home, such as the foundation, roof, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems. 
While they may note visible signs of water damage or mold during their inspection, they 
generally do not conduct specialized mold testing or remediation. 
However, some home inspection companies may offer additional services, such as mold testing 
or indoor air quality assessments, as optional add-ons or as part of a more comprehensive 
inspection package. If you’re concerned about mold in a home you’re planning to purchase, you 
may want to inquire with the home inspection company about their available services and 
whether they offer mold testing or inspection as part of their offerings. 
Keep in mind that if you suspect mold or have concerns about indoor air quality, it’s essential to 
address them proactively. You can hire a certified mold inspector or indoor air quality specialist 
to conduct a more thorough assessment of the property and provide recommendations for 
remediation if necessary. Early detection and remediation of mold problems can help prevent 
further damage and ensure a healthier indoor environment for you and your family.
