Why Mold Testing is an important part of the Mold Inspection process?
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 (OSHA), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the EPA and the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) guidelines.
All spores found in indoor air are also normally found in outdoor air because most originate or live in the soil and on dead or decaying plants. Therefore, it is no unusual to find mold spores in indoor air.
Mold Testing and Mold Inspection Services Tulsa, Ok
Mold911's Mold Testing is included with our Mold Inspection Service, which will include 3 samples. The goal is to compare the outdoor air sample to two indoor air samples. An independant lab analyzes the air samples and reports the mold species and concentration levels detected. If the levels of mold detected is normal, no further mold remediation is required. If the levels of mold are elevated we will be able to provide you information about mold remediation services.
- Extra charge for additional samples, if needed.
Air Sampling Methods We Provide During Mold Testing
Air sampling - Indoor Air Quality Testing
Our most common form of sampling to assess mold levels. Indoor and outdoor air are sampled, and their mold-spore levels compared. Air sampling often identifies mold species, concentration and hidden mold.
Surface / Swab sampling - Test Mold on Affected Materials
We swab the area being sampled, often a measured area, and subsequently sent to the mold testing laboratory. Final results will indicate mold levels and species located in suspect area.
Bulk sampling -
Removal of material from the contaminated area to identify and quantify the mold in the sample
Did you know...
Multiple types of Mold sampling are recommended by the AIHA, since each has limitations; for example, air sampling for mold in the will not identify a hidden mold source and a mold tape sample cannot determine the level of contamination in the air. Once our independent Accredited Third Party Lab analyzes the mold samples the final results will indicate mold levels and and mold species.
