Look for verifiable experience, AND certification (over merely an affiliation) with professional organizations like ICC (International Code Council), InterNACHI (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors), ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors), professional licenses, and the like. These require minimum standards that are verifiable, such as continuing education, testing, experience, etc.

Though a lot of mold will be obvious upon a visual inspection, not all is. Mold can hide behind and inside walls. Your Inspector may be equipped to test for mold if he or she detects its presence. This, like radon, may take a few days for lab results to come back. Any required remediation (clean-up) should be handled by a specialty company.

Radon is worth investigating. Some very serious medical complications have been attributed to its presence in air, and even water, in some homes. Not sure? Wondering if a test is for you?
