Molds are fungi. Tiny particles of mold are present in the indoor and outdoor air that we breathe. Under the right conditions mold spores can multiply towards dangerous levels and thrive. In order to create a proper environment to grow, mold most importantly needs MOISTURE. Our inspectors will do a full visual inspection of the property. This includes areas of concern and general areas that typically have mold growth.

Mold Inspection Mold Testing

What We Inspect

 

  • All interior walls with Moisture Meter to identify areas more likely to have hidden mold.

 

  • All closets, under sinks, under stairs, around windows/doors, or any areas where water is present. (Bathrooms, Utility Rooms, Kitchens, etc.)

 

  • After the full visual inspection of the property, a testing plan is suggested to the client. Our inspectors must suggest any sample that could be beneficial to you the client. It is then your decision to decide what is most important to your situation and what you would like collected and submitted for analysis.

 

 

 

Types of samples:

 

  • Air Quality Sample – This is collected via an air pump and spore trap. Our traps collect 75 Cubic Liters of air, and identify any mold spores present in the air. All homes have some levels of mold in the air, these samples determine if the airborne levels in the clients home are normal or have elevated levels. We can collect these from any rooms/areas of concern, and we base them off of an outside control sample.

 

  • Cavity Sample – This is collected with the same air pump, but with a tube connected to the end of the spore trap to allow a sample to be collected from within walls. These are collected whenever a wall shows signs of visual damage or if a wall has high moisture content. These tell us whether elevated conditions exist behind inaccessible walls to determine if removal is necessary.

 

  • Surface Sample – Surface samples can be taken of any visual discoloration or growth that is observed. We are able to do this by using a medical swab or tape lift. These will identify the species of any observed growth. This often helps when determining the source of any airborne levels.

 

  • After samples have been collected, they are then sent to a third party laboratory for analysis. Turnaround time is typically 1-4 business days. Guaranteed next date results are available at an extra fee. Once the results have been reviewed, a full protocol of any required work is then created if elevated conditions exist. This report tells you what samples were taken, what exact species and concentration were found, and what the next steps would be.

 

If elevated conditions are not found to exist, a general findings report is provided stating the collected samples and that elevated mold conditions were not found to exist.
