At American Mold Experts, we offer mildew and mold testing for both residential and commercial properties through a 3rd party testing and inspection company, Enzycle Lab. Mold testing helps determine whether a substance truly is mold and what type it is. Testing also determines the indoor air quality. Each sample taken follows a chain of custody through Enzycle Lab. We compare the results from the test to the base standards to determine the saturation level affecting the air. An advisor then provides a full report with professional recommendations. The turn-around time for these test results and recommendations is typically 24 to 48 hours.
When to Consider a Mold Test
Mold testing is not always a requirement; for example, If you have already made the decision to get a mold remediation, we may not require a pre-test. However, we usually perform a post-remediation test 72 hours after the remediation to be sure that we thoroughly resolve all issues. This process makes sure that the remediation process has been done thoroughly. We include this post-remediation test on full warranty jobs.
Stages of Mold Testing:
1. Air Sampling
American Mold Experts usually samples the indoor air, which is also known as air sampling. Air sampling tells what the level of airborne fungi is in the indoor environment. A non-contaminated building should have about the same amount of fungi present in the air as the surrounding outdoor environment.
2. Tape Swab Test
Tape swab testing uses a cotton material swab to wipe the surface to be tested. After touching one to three surfaces in the same location, the swab is sent to a lab for examination. Swab tests are generally used to detect and determine what type is present; however, this test does not typically identify spore count.
3. Tape slide test
Tape slide tests are similar to swab test. A piece of tape placed onto area to be tested, lifted, and placed onto glass microslide. The tape slide is then sealed and sent to the microbiology lab for examination.
