How Do We Test For Mold?
We test samples of the air in your home. This is examined under a microscope to determine
whether or not there are mold spores. These mold spores found in the air are not visible
to the naked eye, so the microscope examination can reveal mold you can’t see.
We take samples from various surfaces in hour home, usually by swabbing and tape lifting.
These samples are then tested in a laboratory.
We perform “bulk testing” by taking larger samples such as portions of drywall, carpet, wood
trim or wallpaper. These are also tested in a laboratory.
Culture testing places mold cultures found in your home in a petri dish to allow it to grow.
This allows us to determine the type of mold and whether it is alive. Dead mold doesn’t
spread, but it can cause allergies and health problems. Live mold spreads and can also
result in illness.
If Mold Is Sighted, Get Tested!

mold in your home, and this testing provides reliable results. We want you and your
