Dr. Phil Asks Top Mold Inspection Company, Mold Inspection Sciences, to Investigate a Guest’s Mold Problem


When a wife claims to be allergic to everything including her husband, there is something wrong.

Meet Dr. Phil guests Debbie and her husband of 35 years, Kelly.

This couple has been living in their current home for about six years now. Four years ago Kelly started noticing a change in his wife's behaviors that has since turned in to an obsessive condition where she is claiming to be allergic to everything. Debbie insists on extreme precautions like taping the AC vents, storing her clothes in sealed bags, and washing dishes in the swimming pool. She demands a separate door of entry to the family home that no one else can use and even insists her husband to strip down before entering the house and then immediately shower upon entry.

During the taping of this episode, Dr. Phil reached out to Mold Inspection Sciences to do a full mold inspection of the couple’s home to help determine if there were indeed allergens affecting Debbie. You won’t believe what we found.



We’re so proud to have worked with Dr. Phil to help him solve this issue for his guest. The couple suspected there was more going on in their home, and they were right. The short clip above highlights our licensed mold inspection veteran, Cary Gilcrease, during just a fraction of his investigation. When a mold inspection specialist is dispatched to your home or building, depending on the type of inspection you choose, a full mold investigation of all areas is performed, whether that means starting from the outside in or zoning in on certain rooms or areas inside the home. No surface or area is left unexplored and examined. In addition to quality time spent with your inspector, you will receive a full and detailed documentation of test results and a scope of work documenting next steps and remediation recommendation.

You do mold inspections right?

Yes, its in our name.

Do you do mold remediation too?

No. We do not perform mold remediation. It is a conflict of interest for a mold company to perform the inspection and the remediation. We  will recommend next steps to secure proper mold removal and we can recommend 3rd party remediation contractors.

If I just leave it will it just go away by itself?

No. In most cases, if you leave mold  it will continue to grow and spread, especially with an increase in temperature and moisture.

I read online that bleach works in getting rid of mold, is that true?

No. Bleach is not the ideal (or recommended) solution to get rid of mold and in many cases can make it worse, aggravating the area by adding more water to an already damp area.

You offer a free quote, does that mean the inspector will come out and inspect my house for free?

No. We offer a free quote over the phone meaning we discuss your possible mold problem and make free recommendations on service and pricing.
