The Mold Testing Process:
Before our mold remediation process can take place we generally require that your property is tested for mold.
A trusted Industrial Hygienist will visit your property.
Samples of any problematic or potentially mold-containing materials will be taken.
Samples will be tested using advanced equipment to ensure accurate results.
Test results will be delivered to client.
How We Test For Mold:
Before any samples are taken, you must first identify the potential areas and materials that make be harboring mold. If your home or business property consistently has condensation on the windows, this can be an indication of poor airflow and high humidity. High humidity is one of the main causes of mold growth in Westminster MA.
Once the samples have been collected, our team will work to analyze the sample, compare the results with a test completed from the outdoor mold profile, and then provide the client with our results.
Common Types of Mold:
Cladosporium, Penicillium, and Aspergillus
Types Of Mold Testing:
Air Sampling - While not offering the most accurate count for mold within a given area, it is the most accurate method for measuring to what extent mold growth has impacted the quality of your air.
Direct Sampling - This method consists of taking samples directly from a material suspected to carry mold. This can be conducted by using a swab or tape lift or simply extracting a part of the material for testing. This type of testing will give you an accurate view of the types and quantity of mold growing in your property though will not tell you to what extent it has impacted air quality.
