ASAP Mold Testing
Mold often thrives unnoticed behind walls and other sneaky corners and spaces in your property. With a mold testing procedure, you’ll be able to tell where it lies based on which area/s have the highest amount of mold spores present.
Testing after a Mold Removal
Mold testing does not only apply after a mold inspection. It can also be useful after you have had a mold removal procedure to make sure that the process was a success. There are three types of mold testing. All three types should ideally be performed in order to ensure a mold-free home.
Air Testing: Having the indoor air tested for spores can help you confirm if there is mold growth in your home and tell where it is hiding. However, the amount of mold spores present in the air can change drastically in a short period of time. Thus, you cannot solely rely on the results of air testing.
Surface Testing: Surface sampling tests household surfaces through methods like tape lifting, and swabbing whether to determine where the mold is or to see if the area has been remediated properly.
Bulk Testing: This type of testing involves sending pieces of a mold-infested material from your home to a lab for examination. The pieces are put under a microscope to examine the mold particles. Similar to air testing, bulk testing can help you determine the amount of mold particles present in your home.
