Mold testing is strongly recommended once our team of experts have inspected and determined you likely have a mold issue in your home. Mold testing provides valuable information which will aid in determining the best solution for mold removal and remediation for your home, putting you on the path to healthier living.
Essentially, there are three types of mold sampling. The first is taking a sample of the air in the room. The advantage of air sampling is that it will tell you if there is a mold problem present, even if you can’t see evidence that one exists.
The second type of testing is a surface test, in which we will swab or use a tape-lifting method to collect samples from surfaces around your home, such as a kitchen counter, basement floor or a bathroom wall. This can better help us determine whether mold is growing on the surface and if so, what species.
The last method is bulk testing, in which we will take samples of actual material around the home with suspected mold growth. This gives us vital information needed for formulating a complete mold removal and remediation plan.
These samples are all sent off to a third party, accredited laboratory for examination, often times the same day collected, and the results are typically available within 72 hours. Armed with the lab results, our team can get to work putting together a precise game plan and price quote to get your home back up to healthy standards, the Healthy Way!
