Mold spores are all around us, we inhale these spores on a daily basis and generally it is nothing to worry about. Nevertheless, when a problem is present within a dwelling the amount of nontoxic spores can cause complications for people’s immune systems. Indoor growth can likewise create the presence of other toxic species of mold like Stachybotrys; which isn’t tolerable at any level inside a building.
Portland Mold Testing
Our Portland mold testing process is as follows. First we take one air sample as a control to set a baseline for what is to be accepted inside a home in the area. It’s then compared to the place of biggest concern or a general living area if there are not any visible problems found. Additional samples may be recommended to help confirm a source of a problem, or see if other areas of the home have been tainted. Additional samples can be purchased at $75 each. Every situation is different and there is really no way of know how many will be advocated but ordinarily it is 2-4 total.
After these mold tests are taken on site, they are sent to an recognized AIHA accredited laboratory for investigation. Here they will determine not only what species of mold is present but also quantities of each. You will be sent a duplicate of the lab results and explanation of results will be combinedwith your home inspection report. Customers that do have excess levels of mold will be provided a protocol for mold removal steps to be carried our by a qualified mold remediation group.
