Step 2: Mold Test and Inspection
Our mold testing and inspection process happens in two-steps. The inspector will perform a visual mold inspection followed by a collection of environmental samples and readings. This process will generally take from 1 to 2 hours depending on the amount of mold testing required and the size of the environment.
Visual Mold Inspection:
Our Board-Certified Mold inspector will begin the process with an interview of the client to identify problem areas, health, and legal concerns. A multi-point exterior inspection of the property will be conducted to look for potential microbial growth, unusual humidity levels and water intrusion. The interior inspection will include a visual check for mold, humidity and temperature readings of each room, and an inspection of your HVAC system. Based on the results of the visual mold inspection and interview, recommendations will be made for the sampling process.
Mold Test Samples:
The second part of the mold test is the collection of samples. Our mold inspectors will consult with the Senior Mold Analyst assigned to your account (SMA) for verification of the environmental sampling strategy. Interior air quality samples will be taken along with an exterior sample for comparison. As a bonus, Mold Test Company performs a swab sample of the HVAC system gaining further insight into the environments air quality. Additional advanced testing samples can be taken upon request.
Step 3: Lab Testing
Once the mold test is completed, the biological samples are overnighted to a third-party AHIA Certified Microbiology Laboratory under Chain of Custody. The environmental samples are received and properly logged into the laboratory and analysis begins. Upon completion of the microbiology report the Technical Mold Analyst assigned to your account will compile all the information collected into a single report. The final report is then reviewed by your Senior mold analyst. The results of the mold test samples will usually be available between 2-3 business days after receipt at the laboratory.
Step 4: Result Interpretation
The last step in the process is our consultation call. Once the lab results have been returned, your Senior Mold Analyst (SMA) will contact you to discuss any results that need your attention, including any potential follow-up steps and assistance in mold remediation, litigation, or help finding a health care provider. We will email the certified testing report that includes our recommendations and opinions along with the microbiology report.
