Mold Inspection & Testing Services
The key to mold growth is moisture, though there are physical signs of mold like musty odors, lifting tiles, flaking paint, cracks on walls and green stains, there are often times when these signs are not present. We will inspect your home for water sources and mold growth that pave way for mold problems which cannot be detected by an untrained eye. With a thorough investigation of your home along with proper testing procedures, Trademark Home Inspection, LLC will determine whether a mold problem is affecting your family’s health and eating away at your home.
Types of Mold Sampling
Air Sampling For Mold
Air sampling for mold is done to see if an elevated level of mold spores exists in your home. This is done by taking air samples inside your home as test samples and comparing them to samples taken outside your home used as control samples. In general the concentration of mold spores inside your home should be lower than the concentration of mold spore outside of your home. It is important to know that a set of standards for indoor mold growth does not exist and interpretation of the results greatly depends on the inspectors experience and training. That is why it is important to make sure the inspector performs a visual examination of the property along with air sample testing procedures and not just take air samples to determine if a mold problem exists in your home or business.
Surface Sampling For Mold
Surface sampling for mold is usually performed when there is a visible presence of mold or what is thought to be mold may exist. There are two typical ways to take a surface sample. The first way is a Tape Lift sample in which a piece of bio-tape is placed over the suspected area and the sample is retrieved. The other method is a Swab sample in which a sterile swab is rolled over the suspected area and placed back in a container containing a gel to preserve the sample. Any of the methods above need to be done by a trained mold inspector as they all have their limitations and only after a thorough mold inspection can a testing plan be developed. After testing is complete the samples will be sent to a certified laboratory for analysis.
