Mold Inspector: A mold professional who has been specially trained in the detection of toxic mold contamination in homes, condos, apartments, offices, & commercial buildings. The mold expert inspector utilizes high-tech inspection devices such as moisture meter [to find water problems hidden inside walls, ceilings, and floors], fiber optics [to look inside walls & ceilings for mold infestation], timed mold culture plate impactor, air sampling pump & cassettes, & hygrometer [to check for the high humidity that mold can grow in].

Mold Investigation: Advanced, in depth mold inspection and mold tests to find all mold infestation inside a building. See Certified Toxic Mold Investigator.

Mold Testing: Collection by a Certified Mold Inspector of direct physical samples of visible mold and of indoor air samples in rooms, attic, crawl space, basement, & heating & air conditioning equipment & ducts, so that the mold samplings can be grown by a mold lab in mold culture plates [viable mold testing] to produce full-grown mold colonies for mold analysis & identification by the mold laboratory.
