After Mold Remediation, You Should Test Again


Mahwah NJ Mold Testing ServiceGetting retested for mold after you have gone through remediation is good advice. The discovery of mold in your home is troubling. What you want is a healthy and mold free environment. This is what you should have after removal. Mold Testing NJ-NY advises that you should re-test for any presence of mold after remediation.



Why Test Again?


When mold has been discovered and you’ve had it tested, you hire a mold remediation company to come in and clean it up. Testing informs you of the type of mold and its location. The mold remediation agent will use this information to remove the mold. So why test again? To make sure all of the mold is gone! Mold is hard to get rid of and houses have lots of places where it can hide. While mold remediation companies do an excellent job, it is hard to remove all traces of mold. Retesting is a good idea to make sure all mold, especially the hidden kind, is gone. If there is hidden mold lingering, you may have to start the process all over. This retesting should start 48 hours after remediation has concluded. Doing it sooner may be inconclusive.


Remediation And Testing Should Be Done By Different People


Both pre-remediation and post-remediation testing should be done by someone other than the remediation company. This prevents a conflict of interest and ensures that you are getting an accurate report.  Mold Testing NJ-NY recommends to our New Jersey and New York clients that they re-test for mold after remediation.
