The Mold Inspection Experts You Can Trust


Mold is a concerning topic for homeowners in Houston, and it’s essential to understand before concerns can be addressed effectively. Mold is a type of fungus that can grow both indoors and outdoors. It thrives in environments with lots of moisture, warmth, and organic materials like wood or paper to feed on. In nature, mold helps break down dead plant matter and returns nutrients to the soil, which is a crucial part of earth’s ecosystem.

Finding mold growth inside your home is usually more concerning. When moisture accumulates within your home due to leaks, high humidity, or flooding, tiny mold spores travel through the air and can begin to grow. Mold can take on various colors and textures, and it’s often seen as discolored patches on walls, ceilings, or other surfaces.

The biggest concern with indoor mold is that it can lower air quality, property value of your home, and can pose various health risks, which is why addressing any mold-related issues or concerns is very important and should be taken seriously.

Mold requires two main factors to grow: moisture and organic materials. The moisture can originate from various sources in your home, such as leaks in plumbing, roofs, flooding from Houston’s hurricane season, or simply high indoor humidity levels. Areas that are frequently humid, like bathrooms and kitchens, are more prone to mold growth if the space lacks proper ventilation and airflow. 

Organic materials that mold can use as a food source can be found in many places inside your home. Wood, drywall, paper, fabric, and even dust can provide enough food for mold to start growing. When these two critical factors align—excess moisture and organic materials—mold can take hold and begin to colonize your indoor environment.

In Houston, where humidity levels can be high, it’s important to maintain proper ventilation and keep an eye out for any signs of moisture intrusion or leaks. By addressing these issues as soon as you see them can significantly reduce the risk of mold taking control of your home. If you suspect mold is already present, or if you can visually see mold growth inside your home, we recommend seeking a professional inspection to make sure an effective plan to prevent further growth is created properly.

Yes, mold can impact your health and should be taken seriously. The level of danger depends on various factors like the type of mold, your individual sensitivity, and how much you’ve been exposed. For some people, mold can trigger allergic reactions, resulting in symptoms like sneezing, coughing, itchy or watery eyes, and skin irritation. People with asthma or other respiratory conditions may experience these symptoms more severely depending on the amount of exposure.

Less common household molds, like the infamous black mold (Stachybotrys chartarum), can produce mycotoxins, which are harmful if ingested, inhaled, or make direct contact with the skin. It’s important to emphasize that not all molds are toxic, and most molds do not produce mycotoxins. The majority of individuals exposed to mold do not experience severe health effects.

If you suspect mold in your home or are experiencing unexplained health issues that may be related to mold exposure, take the situation seriously. Professional mold inspection and testing can help determine the presence of mold and its potential health risks. If mold is identified, consult with your mold inspector to create a mold remediation strategy.

Mold often releases a “musty”, earthy, or smelly odor. It’s hard to describe with words, but It’s the scent commonly associated with dirty socks or smelly boots. This odor is a result of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) produced by mold as it grows and breaks down organic materials. The smell depends on the type of mold and the material it’s growing on. It’s important to note that not all molds produce a smelly odor, especially in the early stages of growth. 

If you detect this unusual, musty smell in your home like the one described above, it could be an indication of mold presence, even if you can’t see any visible mold. Please remember that odor alone may not confirm the growth of mold, but it’s a strong indicator to call a professional mold inspector to take a closer look

Well, this is where it gets complicated. Homeowners insurance coverage for mold damage often depends on your insurance provider and the details of your policy. We recommend you to consult with your insurance provider directly about your coverage.

Insurance companies typically cover mold contamination resulting from sudden and unexpected events, like an active pipe leak, toilet overflow, or a broken A/C unit, assuming you take reasonable steps to prevent the damage.

Examples of mold damage that are likely covered:

  • If a pipe bursts and floods the entire first floor of your home while on vacation
  • In the event of a dishwasher malfunction that leads to a kitchen flood


Additionally, mold resulting from storm-related flooding is typically not covered under standard homeowner’s insurance. You would need a separate flood insurance policy covering these scenarios specifically. 

Examples of mold damage that are often not covered:

  • If your bathtub has been leaking for six months, leading to a mold infestation.
  • In cases where you live in an extra humid climate (like Houston) but fail to use a dehumidifier to manage moisture levels.
  • If immediate action isn’t taken after an accidental flood or overflow and you forget to dry out all affected areas


To legally extract mold in Texas, homeowners need a Certificate of Mold Damage Remediation (CMDR) when filing a mold damage claim through their homeowner’s insurance policy. To obtain this certificate, homeowners must follow a specific process:

Request a Professional Mold Assessment by a Texas-Licensed Inspector:

  • The first step is to schedule your inspection and assessment with Neptune Mold Solutions
  • During this assessment, the inspector will examine the affected areas to determine the extent of the mold problem.
  • The inspector will also provide a written protocol known as a Mold Remediation Protocol, outlining the best methods and strategies for mold remediation.

Find a trustworthy Texas-Licensed Mold Remediation Company:

  • With the written protocol in hand, homeowners should then engage the services of a Texas-licensed mold remediation company.
  • The mold remediation company will follow the protocol provided by the inspector to carry out the required mold remediation work.
  • It is crucial to ensure that the remediation company is licensed in Texas to ensure compliance with state regulations

Get a Post-Remediation Clearance Inspection by a Licensed Mold Consultant:

  • After the mold remediation work is completed, a licensed mold consultant from Neptune Mold Solutions will conduct a post-remediation clearance inspection.
  • This inspection is designed to double check that the mold issue has been effectively addressed and that the affected areas are now completely mold-free and safe to enter. 
  • If the clearance inspection confirms that the remediation was successful, a Certificate of Mold Damage Remediation (CMDR) will be issued.
  • When the mold remediation is complete, the restoration company hired to do the work will sign their portion of the CMDR within 10 days.


Finally, your mold consultant at Neptune Mold Solutions will sign their portion of the certificate, approving the project’s completion and the mitigation of mold damage.

Please note that these procedures apply to mold damage claims in the state of Texas and may differ in other regions. Always consult your specific policy and local regulations for precise requirements.

Exposure to certain species of mold can have serious health risks, ranging from common allergy-like symptoms to more serious, in some rare cases, life-threatening conditions. If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned below, please call a mold inspector near you (Texas Mold Assessment Consultant) to inspect your home. 

Less-severe symptoms of mold exposure can feel similar to having a common cold:
  • Coughing
  • Sore throat
  • Sneezing
  • Heavy breathing
  • Body aches
  • Skin rash
  • Nasal congestion

It’s important to mention that everyone has a slightly different immune system, so individuals who are more sensitive or less healthy may experience these side effects differently. Long-term exposure to mold can lead to additional medical conditions such as:
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Nausea
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Vertigo
  • Diarrhea
