Mold Testing

Do You Know What's In Your Air?

You will want a test if you are experiencing symptoms but can't see the mold. Ask the Mold Buster's Mold Inspector to take a sample of your air when s/he conducts a no-cost, no-obligation quote.

For $199, our inspector will send indoor and outdoor benchmark samples to a third-party lab for testing. The results will then be emailed to you within one to three days and followed up by a phone call from your mold inspector to walk you through the report and discuss the next steps.

Mold Swabbing

Surface & Air Quality Mold Testing

There are two types of mold testing 1) surface swabbing, and 2) air sampling.

One air quality test is sufficient for most situations as it detects mold that you can both see, and can't see.

More tests are needed if there is more than one room or other location where it is suspected.

When your Mold Buster's Inspector visits s/he will discuss whether you need one or both of the tests, and for how many locations.

What Do I Get with a Mold Test?

You can look through a mold inspection report to the right.  Here are a number of potential benefits.

  • Certain molds are considered safe to remediate yourself. If you knew that it was safe for you to handle yourself, and would be willing to remediate the mold yourself, then this is the only reason you need.
  • Different types of mold can require different protocols. This could potentially save $1,000s.
  • Your home insurance company requires the information in order to cover the cost.
  • You have been experiencing symptoms, and for the benefit of your future health, want the knowledge that can come by knowing exactly what was effecting you.

Make Your Plan

By first defining and understanding the air quality in your building, you can make an educated decision on how to proceed.

If you know you have of an air quality problem, an air test may not be necessary.

If you are unsure, for $199 we will take one air sample from inside and one from outside your building ($50 for each additional sample) for analysis by a 3rd party lab.

We will then give you results and discuss the best course of action.
