In most cases, once a free mold visual inspection was performed, there is a need to perform air and surface test in a certified lab, which will identify types of mold and categorize their toxicity level.
It is crucial to test for mold even if you are just a little suspicious:
- Most people spend 60 to 90% of their time indoors.
- 50% of all illnesses are caused by or aggravated by polluted indoor air.
- The levels of some hazardous pollutants in indoor air have been found to be up to 70 times greater than in outdoor air.
- More than 50 million Americans suffer from mold allergies.
Our testing is performed on two levels: Air Quality Testing and Surface Swab Samples. When it is necessary to perform mold testing (e.g. health issues arise, legal purposes), then it would be advisable to take at least one surface swab sample and two air samples.
The reason is, in some situations, you may have mold growing on a surface, but it has not reached a point where it is releasing enough mold spores into the air to cause a problem. In this case, air sampling alone would provide results that did not accurately portray the extent of Mold Growth.
Another scenario may be where, in your random surface swab sampling, you did not sample a surface where mold was growing (or at least not at a significant level), but mold colonies throughout other parts of the home had reached a point where they were releasing substantial amounts of mold spores into the air. In this case, your surface sampling would not give you an accurate picture of the problem.
