Air Quality Mold Testing
Protect your home and health by getting an air quality mold test. Our mold tests detect mold spores in the air. Early detection can prevent costly damage, ensure a safe living environment, and provide leverage for negotiation.
What is Mold?
Mold is a fungus that grows in damp places and releases invisible spores into the air. These can settle on surfaces and cause health and structural issues. Though mold is common, too many spores can be a problem. Our air quality mold tests find these hidden particles, helping clients manage health risks.
Inhaling airborne mold spores can trigger allergies, respiratory problems, and skin irritation. This is especially concerning for vulnerable individuals, including those with weakened immune systems, and chronic respiratory conditions like asthma. Our founder spent 20 years in respiratory medicine and is passionate about helping homeowners protect their families from these health hazards.
After 3 air samples are collected, they are sent to an independent lab for analysis. A report is created and sent by email to our inspector, who then shares the findings with the client. The results are based on lab analysis, ensuring accuracy and objectivity.
Types of Mold Inspections
Our mold tests measure indoor air mold spore levels only. Some clients seek a more comprehensive inspection including visible mold identification, physical sampling, and expert remediation advice. We do not provide this service, but we can recommend a seasoned Industrial Hygienist for more extensive assistance.
Spore Trap Tests
We use the spore trap testing method to capture and analyze indoor mold spores. We use state of the art equipment to take 3 samples: one from outdoors as the control, and two from indoors. The two indoor sample results are compared to the outdoor sample, to determine if elevated levels of mold exist.
Air Quality Test Results
A mold test result report gives a clear picture of indoor air quality. It lists all mold types and spore counts detected comparing indoor and outdoor levels. The report will clearly define the levels of mold in normal range, elevated, or slightly elevated. The report will also define each type of mold detected and its allergen potential, toxin potential, and disease potential.
