Indoor Air Quality Testing

Air Testing

Obtaining Mold Samples

Our visual assessment will help us determine where the mold is located. We will take air samples from the affected areas to test for mold spores in the air. Sometimes a swabbing in an affected room can tell us how much mold is present as well.

Indoor air quality testing is performed to determine the presence and concentration of mold spores in your home's air, especially when mold is not visually evident. Testing is typically done prior to and after remediation work is performed to validate the elimination of the mold threat.

Here are times when mold testing is advised:

• When you are purchasing a new home
• Following Flood Damage or after a Leak has been found
• If there is a strong odor but you do not visibly see mold
• Health concerns that are unexplained

When is Air Testing Necessary?

Air testing is performed to determine the presence and concentration of mold spores in your home’s air, especially when mold is not visually evident. There are also situations where individuals need proof that mold is present such as at rental properties. People with allergies, asthma/other respiratory issues, compromised immune systems, children and the elderly who are particularly sensitive to mold, air testing is recommended. Other individuals are just looking for peace of mind and request mold testing air quality services.

Testing is typically done prior to and after remediation work is performed to validate the elimination of the mold threat. Most experts including the EPA suggest only testing under very specific conditions. In general, a moisture and mold inspection by a qualified professional is far more useful in determining if a mold problem exists. Comprehensive Mold Management offers both air and surface testing. We provide a report which includes spore concentration, types of mold and the health effects that can be caused based on the specific types of mold.
