As a State Certified Mold Assessor, we are able to perform mold testing and mold sampling. Surface and air samples are taken from the home, then tested in a laboratory. Based on the detailed laboratory report, the homeowner can then take the necessary steps to remove the mold safely and effectively. Testing a home is a prudent way to prevent small problems from growing into a costly and unhealthy situation. There is a true value offered with this type of testing.
Due to the high levels of humidity in Florida, it is very common to find mold in our area homes. Mold has a potential to cause health problems like allergies, irritation (to lungs, eyes, skin, throat, nose) and are potentially toxic. The longer it grows the more damage it may cause. If there is a mold finding in your home, you then have the opportunity to clean the mold promptly and properly. Mold can be hidden, growing on moisture and can develop into a potentially large problem if not caught in time.
New Construction Stage Inspections
Florida Construction is on the rise. Construction stage inspections meet the needs of lending groups throughout Charlotte, Lee, Sarasota, and Desoto County. Residential and commercial inspections are provided to verify stages of completion during construction. These inspections will also ensure compliance with architectural plans and verification of the required quality of workmanship.
We work with many local lending institutes to provide confirmation to the buyers and lenders that the construction is completely based on building specification, time frame, and draw schedules
Many families will hire their own inspection company to inspect the home throughout each stage of construction. This gives you the peace of mind knowing that your contractor is building the home based on the building specification. Kelting Inspections can perform a walk-through inspection on your behalf.
11th Month WarrantyInspection
Builders offer a one-year warranty on a new home. We will come out during the 11th month and perform a full home inspection before the builder’s warranty expires.

This inspection will protect you and your property. It will give you that peace of mind after your one year warranty is over.
