  • Assessing fungal ecology
  • Confirming the presence of mold
  • Locating source(s) of moisture
  • Assessing potential health risks
  • Eliminating potential health risks
  • Planning a mold remediation
  • Providing evidence for insurance claims/litigation

How to tell if you need a mold test

One common reason people decide to get professional mold testing is that they notice persistent smells or recurring symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, skin or eye irritation and headaches.

Although many of these symptoms are associated with and point to seasonal allergies, it’s possible you’re actually experiencing an allergic reaction to mold.

It’s also a good idea to get a mold test if you’re thinking about buying a home. Know that the home you’re investing in is free of harmful air pollutants that will cost you down the road.

Finally, if you’ve never had your home tested for mold, there’s no better time to start than today.
