When the space becomes excessively humid, professional mold testing is required. The same service you need if you have suspicions that mold exists in your space.
We perform mold testing in two main ways: surface sampling and air sampling.
Surface sampling involves taking samples of suspicious substances from surfaces. And we can take these samples in three ways: bulk sampling, swab sampling, and tape sampling.
Bulk Sampling. For this method of sampling, the mold inspector takes a part of the surface for testing. Then, we place the piece inside a container to keep it intact for testing at the laboratory.
Swab Sampling. Swab sampling means taking a wipe at the suspected surface using a cotton swab. The particles of mold if any will latch onto the cotton. Then we can carry out the testing at the lab.
Tape Sampling. Sampling with tape makes use of the adhesive property of the tape. We apply the tape to the suspected surface and fit it on the microscope slide for testing.
To collect air samples, we require the air in the space to pass through the testing device. After that, to ensure the quality of results, we carry out samples in an independent certified laboratory to check them under a microscope.

Mold inspection is a physical analysis of the mold situation in a space. With inspection, certified mold specialists can make recommendations on how to control humidity, and identify places where mold growth is likely to be occurring. However, mold testing gives more insight. With testing, we can carry out mold identification and know the level of mold in the space. This allows us to decide if professional mold remediation is necessary.
Mold can negatively impact the health of any exposed to it. It can also aggravate already existing health issues. For instance, people with allergies to asthma can be threatened by the presence of mold. So, yes, it's recommended to schedule professional services if you suspect mold.
We can't assign a single cost to the mold testing service. The reason for this is that prices are dependent on factors that vary. For instance, we need to consider the size of the area and the number of samples gotten from the property. For a cost estimate contact us by phone.
The time required for mold testing is dependent on the size of the space. However, it usually takes about two to six hours for us to complete mold testing on any property, and then several days for the testing results to be returned from the laboratory.
