Understanding the value of mold testing.
Have you ever had mold in your home? It can be a hideous discovery. And the truth about mold is that it’s not a benign entity you can live in harmony with or that you can ignore and hope it will go away. Mold will grow and colonize wherever there is a warm, damp place in your home. And believe it or not, your home has many of those, even if you can’t see them. And therein lies the problem. Most of the time we can’t see the mold that’s infesting our homes. That’s where mold testing comes into play. But does it really work? Let’s take a look.
A Snapshot of Your Home
Mold testing is a way to take a snapshot of the air quality in your home at any given time. The mold testing will sample the air quality and will be able to tell how many mold spores are present in the air when it’s tested.
Multiple Tests and Locations
In order to get an accurate picture of the mold situation in your home, it’s helpful to take multiple samples in various areas of your home. This will give you a real idea of how much mold is present and in what areas it’s more likely to be pervasive.
Different Types of Mold Testing
In addition to air quality testing, mold testing includes surface and bulk tests as well. Surface testing takes samples from surfaces using either a swab or tape or scraping to identify the amount and type of mold. Bulk mold testing is done by taking samples of items from a home and having them tested in a lab.
Mold testing has gotten a bad rap at times, but the truth is that mold testing can help you not only identify if you have mold in your home but also help you to know where it is so it can be cleaned and removed.
