While mold is very common here in Florida, many times it’s not a problem. The real issue isn’t whether there is mold or not, but what kind of mold. The lab tests the mold under a microscope and writes a report about it’s findings. It is recommended that the mold is tested in order to find out the type of mold so you know what to do and how to handle it.
Radon is not common in Florida as it is in other parts of the country. Radon is a pretty big misnomer as we can have many hotspots that test positive on a daily basis. This invisible odorless gas can only be detected by testing.
Roof certificates are often needed by some insurance companies. Unless a roof certificate is specifically requested by an insurance company, do not order this.
