Mold Inspections: Ventura, Santa Barbara, Camarillo & More

Mold inspections are of utmost importance. If not removed correctly, mold can remain behind and out of sight of the naked eye. We can provide you with fast and accurate mold analysis utilizing state-of-the-art equipment, moisture meters, thermal imaging and hygrometers. Extensive information about our mold inspections can be found in our thorough reports.

Customer Reviews

Scott was great to work with. Very thorough and professional. We highly recommend him!

Hannah M.

Gold Coast Inspectors is my first choice in home inspection. They are prompt in returning calls and scheduling an inspection as quickly as possible to meet the clients’ schedules. The reports are returned promptly also and are very thorough. Scott shares his knowledge and expertise with the client in a way that is easy for them to understand items he calls attention to.

Ron K.

Scott looked gave us recommendations based on the test results we were working with. He was honest and helpful. We’ve decided to replace our HVAC and install an air scrubber to help with air quality. Scott was able to recommend the air scrubber he’s used in the past.

Cara M.

Scott always is on time for an inspection. He is prepared and does his inspection thoroughly, and in a timely manner. He seems always patient with my buyers; answering their questions either at the end of the inspection or takes the time to discuss something during the inspection. To me it shows a level of compassion and understanding of the client’s needs. I appreciate that.

Kathy K.

Had a terrific experience with Scott. I’m buying a condo in Oxnard which had had some prior issues and repairs. Scott took the time and listened to my concerns and did a very complete inspection. He addressed all my questions and also reviewed some previous inspection/repair docs from the seller to ensure that things were as they should be. Happy to recommend.
