Florida law allows a Licensed Fl. Home inspectors to perform, inspect, sample, and identify visible mold, assuming the visible mold discovered during the home inspection is less 10 square feet in area, however a mold assessment of a home requires a Fl. licensed Mold Assessor, for a proper mold assessment we recommend a Fl. licensed CIE (certified indoor environmentalist) mold assessor such as John Cosgrove or Doug Wall CIE for a proper quality mold assessment.
Florida's Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) is responsible for licensing and regulating mold assessors and mold remediators. For more details, visit the Florida DBPR website for the mold-related services licensing program.
