Is Mold a Problem?

Mold is everywhere and it cannot be eradicated from our environment. God gave us mold as a natural way to break down organic material, and it is useful in nature. However, it can be a disaster when left unchecked in our homes.

Mold infestations may make you sick and destroy your home’s structure. Adding to that is the difficulty in finding and identifying mold due to its affinity for dark, damp places, often hidden from view.

Normally, surprises are not good in real estate transactions. Don’t allow a surprise mold infestation keep you from selling your home or from buying one. Protect your investment by checking for mold, and if present, take care of it.

Mold Testing Methods

Mold testing involves collecting air samples inside and outside the home, as well as a surface sample, using industry standard protocols. If needed, additional samples may be taken. After the samples are collected, we submt them to a state licensed mold lab for analysis.

The air sample collected from outside is used as a baseline for determining what is a “normal” level of mold in and around the house. The inside air samples and the surface samples will determine if unsafe levels of mold are inside the house. They will also give an indication of where it is growing.

How Much Does a Mold Test Cost?

The basic mold testing costs $400.00 and includes three samples: outside air, indoor air, and a surface sample. If needed, additional samples cost $75.00 each. Our price includes the lab fees.
