Mold Testing: Why It’s Important and How The Home Exam Can Help

Mold Testing: What Is It?

Mold testing is a process used to identify any mold or fungal growth in a home or building. The process involves taking air samples or direct samples of material which can be sent to a lab for analysis. The lab will then provide a report that can help identify the type of mold present and its concentration.

Why Is Mold Testing Important?

Mold can cause a variety of health issues, particularly for those with allergies or asthma. It is also important to identify if any mold is present because it can cause damage to the structure of a home or building.

Here are some of the reasons why mold testing is important:

  • Identify the presence of mold. Not all mold is visible, and a professional inspection can detect any hidden mold.
  • Determine the type of mold present. Different types of mold can have different effects on health and the structure of a home.
  • Assess the severity of the mold. The concentration of mold can be an important factor in determining the risk it poses to occupants.
  • Determine the cause. A professional inspection can help identify the source of the mold, which can then be addressed.
  • Monitor progress. Repeat inspections can be used to track if any further mold growth is present and if any steps taken have been successful.
