Mold surface tests are taken via a swab sample or by a tape lift sample. This will confirm or not confirm the area of suspected mold growth and of what type. If you have spots of fungal growth that appear to be having different variations, it is recommended that you take one of each variation for the accuracy of what is visibly present.
Also, we can provide what is called a bulk sample for mold. We can send a piece of material off to see if theirs's mold on it.
The sample(s) collected from your property will be sent off to an AIHA Accredited Laboratory and signed by a microbiologist.
Is it Always Necessary to Test for Mold?
If visible mold growth is present, sampling is likely unnecessary. Air sampling or indoor air quality for mold is not included in a routine assessment because decisions about appropriate removal strategies often can be made on the basis of a visual inspection.
If there is extensive contamination, health issues, or legal issues involved, our inspectors may recommend an Indoor Air Quality test be taken.
I cannot say enough positive things about Lee Ramey and this company! From start until finish everything was clearly communicated, professionally done, and the attention to detail was outstanding. Lee took the time to inspect and evaluate all the places of concern in my house. He went above and beyond to investigate and make sure my home was clean and healthy.James
They were quick, on time and very professional. Got the job done in the estimated time for the cost discussed beforehand. They had several options for payment without hidden fees so it fits most budgets. Very thankful and definitely recommend!Daniel S.
There is a reason that this company is rated so high and now I know why. Their team is responsive, thorough, reasonable, and most important to those of us who need them, they are empathetic. In the midst of a bad situation, they help you understand the science behind what is going on and they genuinely seem to care about the situation you are going through. They are honest and reliable and I highly recommend them. You too will understand what the positive reviews are about as soon as you meet them.Jason R.
