What Is Mold Testing?
Mold testing involves taking a sample of either the air or surface from the structure in question. Our mold inspector will test the sample to determine what sorts of mold are present in your home or business. M3 Environmental Consulting’s focus is to locate the mold growth, assess the situation, and decide the proper corrective action needed to fix the moisture problem and develop a remediation plan for the removal of contamination safely and efficiently.
Why Is Mold Detection & Testing Important?
Mold testing and detection is important because the presence of mold can have a significant impact on the health and comfort of those with whom you live and work. Anyone with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory ailments is extremely vulnerable to the risks mold presents. Sometimes you can visually determine the presence of mold, but if the mold is growing behind walls or in hidden cavities of your property, professional detection and testing becomes necessary.
How Is Mold Dangerous?
In addition to health concerns, the presence of mold can negatively affect the structure and lifespan of your property. Mold gradually damages building materials and furnishings. If uncorrected, mold can eventually cause structural damage to any wood framed building, weaken floors, and feeds on most wooden structures. Do what’s best to maintain the structural integrity of your buildings, call M3 Environmental Consulting for cost effective mold testing today.
How Is Mold Testing Performed?
Mold samples can be taken and analyzed in several different methods. The most common air testing procedure uses a spore trap and is called a spore trap sample. There are other methods that involve culturing or growing mold spores captured from the air. Surface samples also can be taken to determine the presence and concentration of mold. The three most common types of mold testing for surface samples are bulk samples, swab samples, and tape samples. Regardless of how the samples are collected, each one is evaluated for evidence of mold.
