Testing For Mold


Mahwah NJ Mold Testing ServiceTesting for mold is performed by a professional mold testing service that can determine the presence of mold, what kind of mold is present, and how widespread the mold growth is. Some mold is visible, some airborne and invisible. Some mold has an odor, like rotting wood. To know if mold is present in your home, you need testing. Mold Testing NJ-NY is a certified and experienced mold testing service working in Northern New Jersey and nearby NY areas.  There is a distinction – mold: testing service/remediation service.  Read on to see the difference.


Mold Remediation


Mold remediation or removal is done by a mold remediation service. It probably is not advisable to have the same service test for mold and remove mold. This can present a conflict of interest. A mold testing service provides you with an unbiased report regarding the presence of mold, what kind of mold you have, and how great the mold growth is. The outfit that removes the mold can use the testing service’s findings to determine how to remediate. Hiring two distinct and different agents is in your best interest.


Think About Re-testing After Mold Remediation


After a mold remediation service has cleaned up the mold, you should have a “Post Mold Remediation Verification” test. Your mold tester comes back and tests for mold again. Mold Testing NJ-NY offers this service. Our goal is to give you peace of mind, knowing the mold is gone. We only test for mold, we do not remediate.


Testing For Mold Can Prevent Health Problems


Mold can cause health issues and should be cleaned up if it is present. If the presence of mold in your home is serious and widespread we will recommend remediation. In all, this is a three step process, test – remediate – test again. In the end you should have a home that is mold free and healthy.
