Mold grows in our homes and environment even though we don't want it there. Usually, mold will grow unseen but as time goes by, it starts to get more pronounced until you can see the mold. If you find yourself battling with unexplained headaches or allergies, then you may be facing a mold infestation. You will need to eliminate all traces of mold before you can restore normalcy to your home. To do that, you first have to test for mold to confirm its presence before you can proceed to eliminate it.

Mold testing or mold identification refers to the methods by which the presence of mold is discovered.

Different mold species have different appearances and smells, still identification can't be done with the help of visual mold inspection. There are multiple ways to test for and identify mold in the home and our experts are trained in all of them. The most notable methods of mold testing known are by testing air samples or by testing surface samples.
Our experts know where to collect the samples to give meaningful and reliable results. There are many ways you can collect air samples of mold before proceeding to analyze the sample. The most used method, which our experts also employ is known as the spore trap.
The method is simple, as air samples are passed through an area with a sticky surface. The surface will then capture particles from the air and where mold is present, mold will be held by the sticky surface as well. The trap is sealed to avoid contamination and transported back to an independent lab. There, the surface is then stained and tested to identify the mold that is present in your home. There are other tests we can use to confirm the mold species but staining techniques are the most commonly used.
This method is used when the mold is physically visible and is suspected to be mold. Our experts are trained to safely extract a sample of the mold and transport it back to the lab to test it.
Mold usually grows where there is water, so we check for leakages or areas that are moist and damp. To help us locate these sources of moisture, we make use of the latest technologies in mold testing and identification. This includes the use of mold detection devices like humidity meters and infrared imaging. Our team of mold experts offers mold detection services to those residing in and around Coconut Creek, Florida.
