Why test for mold?

The ugly stains on the wall or in your bathroom can be mold.  It could be just dust too or soot. So why test?  Testing is the only way to know if it is actually mold.  You will also find out what type of mold it is and whether it’s toxic or not.  The information you receive will pave the way for what type of remediation is necessary. 

There is over 300,000 types of mold and not everyone of them is bad for your health.  And not all mold that is black is the Toxic Black Mold.

Mold Testing & Inspection

Our Mold Testing procedures follows the IAC2 Standards of Practice.  We utilize air, swabs, bio-tape, bulk samples, and ERMI tests. The Inspector will determine which one(s) will be suitable for your circumstance. 

  • The outdoor air sample(s) is for the control, while the indoor air sample(s) will tell us if and what kind of mold and levels of spores is in the area that is tested.
  • Bio -Tape allows for direct sampling of mold. Lab results will show type of mold and if there was any living hyphae present.
  • Swab Testing is very similar to Bio-tape sampling.
  • EMRI Testing collects a dust sample from carpeting to verify mold.  
  • Bulk Sample utilizes a piece of flooring, wall and or ceiling that is removed and sent into the laboratory for results.

A Mold Inspection is essentially a simplified home inspection.  During a mold inspection, the Inspector will look for moisture intrusion points, ventilation within the home, along how well your home sheds water away.  Our Inspector is Certified by the IAC2.


We look at all things exterior. From the roof, all the way to the site drainage.


From floor to ceiling, to inside the attic. We look at all components that make up the guts of the house that we can see.
