Home Mold Testing: All That Residence Need to Know

A home mold testing is an inspection conducted to identify the presence of water damage and mold growth on building materials and personal contents throughout a home.

A mold inspection includes a visual inspection for mold growth, moisture mapping for hidden leaks, air sampling, surface sampling, and checking the air conditioning for mold. Each inspection may vary in nature.

How Mold Assessment is Done

For home mold testing, air samples and surface samples are generally collected to determine the impact of mold on the indoor building environment. These samples are then sent to a third-party laboratory for analysis, with results typically available within 48 hours. Based on the visual findings and lab results, the inspector generates a report.

Remediation protocols are developed based on the assessment. Mold remediation companies like Express Water Damage Restoration follow these guidelines to provide estimates and carry out the mold cleaning process.

The duration of home mold testing can range up to two hours, depending on the size of the home.
