3. Surface Testing

Surface testing would include swab samples or tape samples from surfaces that are sent to a lab for analysis.

4. Bulk Testing

This is when there is a large area of mold that cannot be identified. This usually involves taking a piece of carpet, drywall or tile from your home and sending it to a lab for analysis.

A certified mold testing professional will help you understand the risks of mold. Also, when mold has been discovered and remediated, it is important to deal with the root cause of the mold problem.
