What is Mold Testing?

Mold could be the culprit lurking behind walls or under floors, affecting your health and your home’s indoor air quality; but how do you pinpoint the problem? Mold testing is a solution designed to do just that. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll walk you through this testing, demystifying the process from start to finish.

Understanding the Basics of Mold Testing

Professional mold inspectors–like Bactronix–are equipped with advanced tools and technologies that allow us to detect and identify various types of mold accurately. These tools include moisture meters, infrared cameras, and air sampling devices, which provide a detailed analysis of the mold situation in your home. Moreover, as professional mold assessors, we have specific experience in designing mold sampling protocols, sampling methods, and interpreting results. All of which follow analytical methods recommended by professional organizations like the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) and the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH).

What Experts Look For

During the initial walk-through, the mold testing expert will ask you questions about any past or current history of leaks, flooding, or other water intrusion events in your home or business. They will also visually inspect for any visible signs of mold growth to identify the areas of concern. This initial assessment helps narrow down potential problem areas and determine where to take samples. It’s essential to be thorough during this process, as missing key areas could lead to inaccurate results.

Mold Report and Ongoing Support

As mold remediators, we go beyond just identifying the presence of mold. At Bactronix, we can provide comprehensive reports that include the type of mold, its concentration, and the areas affected. These reports are crucial in formulating an effective mold remediation plan.
