INVESTIGATION & CONFIRMATION
Mold Inspection & Testing
The Mold Inspection process includes but is not necessarily limited to; reading any previous inspection or testing reports, gather information, perform a building moisture inspection, and develop a preliminary determination of whether or not there is a moisture problem that has resulted in mold growth.
Mold Inspection is More Reliable Than Testing Alone
As stated in a National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health article "Testing and Remediation of Dampness and Mold Contamination,""...spore counts and culture results, which tend to be what are included in indoor air quality reports, do not capture the full range of exposures. We have found that thorough visual inspections and/or detection of problem areas via musty odors are more reliable. These methods have been used in past NIOSH research and have shown a correlation with health risks in buildings that have indoor environmental complaints."
Importance of Mold Inspection & Testing
Mold testing should be done only to make a particular determination, such as airborne spore concentration or identifying a particular species. MOLD911's Certified Mold Inspectors follows the recommendations of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Mold Guidelines (OSHA), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the EPA and the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) guidelines.

2 Step Mold Inspection Process
1: A Visual Inspection
The first step in our Mold Inspection process is to non-intrusively investigate signs of moisture issues causing Mold. We use tools like, hygrometer, to test humidity levels behind walls. The amount of visible Mold may help to determine the extend of remediation necessary. Intrusive observation is sometimes needed to assess the mold level. This includes moving furniture, lifting (or removing) carpets, checking behind wallpaper or paneling, checking ventilation ductwork and exposing small areas in wall cavities. Our experienced Mold Inspectors can recognize musty odors and focuses on areas where signs of moisture & water damage appears.
2: Professional Mold Testing
Mold911's Standard Mold Test includes 3 air samples although at times depending on our investigation we may take surface or tape-lift samples. The main goal of Mold testing is to compare an outdoor air sample to one or more indoor air samples. We will overnight the samples to an accredited independant third-party lab. The lab will analyze the samples and report only the mold species and airborne Moldspore concentration levels detected in your indoor air. If the levels of mold detected is normal, no further work is required. If the high levels of Moldspores are detected, we can confirm that you have a Mold outbreak problem.
