Our San Diego mold testing measurement is as follows. First we take one air sample as a control to set a standard for what is to be expectednormal 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 advocated to help confirm a source of a problem, or see if other areas of the home have been affected. Additional samples can be collected at $75 each. Every situation is different and there is really no way of know how many will be recommended but commonly it is 2-4 total.
