The fear of mold in your home is very real. You have probably heard many different horror stories about the serious health problems mold can cause. If you suspect mold is growing in your home, it could be time to call in a professional mold testing company like All Aspects Waterproofing to check your home. Let’s take a look at what a professional mold testing service includes.
Step One: Visual Inspection
The first step to a mold testing service is to do a visual inspection. This step is a visual inspection of the area to determine the spread of mold and the extent of the water infiltration in your home. If our technicians cannot see the mold in your home, an air sample will help use identify where it is and how bad the problem could be.
Step Second: Surface Samples
The second step to a mold testing service is to do a surface sample. A surface sample is taken in a number of different ways including a swab, tape, and bulk sample. These samples are extremely important because they will be analyzed along with the air sample to determine the type of mold growing in your home.
Step Third: Air Samples
The third step to a mold testing service is to take an air sample. The most common method of taking an air sample is by setting a spore trap around your home. These sticky traps capture particles to be analyzed at a third party laboratory. An air sample test is important because it will also give us an idea of how bad the problem is and how to deal with the situation effectively. Although we may not see all of the mold growing in your home, an air sample will be able to tell us how many spores are being released into the air and allow us to estimate the extent of the problem.
Each of these tests allow our mold remediation specialists to gauge how to effectively remove the mold with the least amount of damage possible. Our customized solutions will help keep your family safe and healthy as we remove the mold.
