The importance of testing and detecting mold

The potential for mold in a home might sound a bit scary, and in many cases, it should. The best way to fight mold is to catch it as early as possible with a conclusive mold assessment and create a treatment plan is to start by assessing the types of mold present with tests and sampling of affected areas.

The CDC warns that people with sensitivities and allergies usually have intense reactions to mold exposure. More recent scientific studies have found that there are also some potential health risks from heavy exposure to indoor mold–including risk for respiratory infections and increased incidence of allergies.

The air sample that we collected will be sent to a high-level lab for analysis. If you notice any visible mold or if a professional pointed it out to us and requests that we do an on-site sampling, we will take a sample by hand and expedite it to our lab partners for analysis.
