What are the advantages of having a mold test?

Mold testing is a process that allows you to identify the presence of mold and spore count in any environment. Air or Swab samples can be used to identify both indoor and outdoor mold spores and the laboratory identifies which category the mold falls into. Third-party mold testing is important because when suffering from certain types of allergies or respiratory issues, it will help you cross-reference the mycotoxins in your blood with your healthcare provider.

Mold can cause a variety of health problems, including respiratory issues, allergies, and asthma

Mold can cause a variety of health problems, including respiratory issues, allergies, and asthma. Mold spores are tiny and lightweight, and they can cross-contaminate through the air easily. When they land on surfaces, they can start to grow and spread. If you breathe in mold spores, you may experience respiratory problems, such as difficulty breathing, wheezing, itchy eyes, and coughing. Mold can also cause allergies and asthma attacks. If you think you may be experiencing health problems caused by mold, talk to your allergist’s primary doctor.

Mold can damage your property and content 

Mold can also damage your property and belongings. Mold can grow on any organic material, so it can easily cause damage to wood, paper, cloth, and other materials. If mold is left untreated, it can quickly grow and spread, causing extensive damage to the property. It’s important to abate any mold immediately and take the necessary steps to prevent it from growing in the future.

A mold test can identify the source of the mold and help you take steps to remove it 

Mold is often found in areas of the home that you wouldn’t expect and can cause a variety of health problems. A mold test can help our technicians identify the category of the mold and how detrimental it is. There are hundreds of different types of mold fungus that can enter one’s home. Air samples are generally taken in the common living space and swab samples would be sampled directly from the visual mold. Whether the mold is toxic or not all mold is treated the same.

Collecting Air and Swab samples from the affected area and analyzing them for the presence of mold is only truly recommended when the mold isn’t visual and would be growing behind walls and floors. This test can be performed by calling 305-465-6653 and having them send down a certified licensed technician to have your samples tested and sent to a third-party laboratory for accurate results.
