Unless the mold is already visible, air quality testing for mold can be an extreme helpful tool in finding hiding problems like existing or previous water damage, often undetected for years.
Your nose doesn’t lie, if there is a musty smell in a basement, air quality testing is a great tool in the tool box of the mold inspector to help identify the problem.
While a mold inspection can often be sufficient if mold is already visible, air quality testing for mold will detect all mold spores; their identification (species toxic and non-toxic) and the amounts which indicate the severity of the problem.
Our industry considers a good air test when the air sample results taken inside, are similar and comparable to the outside sample (control sample).
Because we know what types of mold decompose different substances, upon air quality test results and identification, we can determine their location.
Cleanfirst can provide assessments for all different types of contaminants that can exist and cause difficulty to some people, often the most popular and sought after is the air quality test for mold.
