Mold is part of the natural environment and can be found everywhere including indoors. Mold is not usually a problem unless it begins growing at levels that are higher than safe.
Not all mold in a home is visible and you may consider having the air quality tested to determine if the strains and the concentrations in the areas tested are within the normal range.
Our base mold testing tests 1000 sq ft within the home plus a sample control that we collect from outside. If your home is larger than 1000 sq ft, you may want to add additional tests to encompass more areas of the home.
The testing is completed during the inspection and then they are overnighted to the lab. Results are ready within 24-48 hours after they are received in the lab.
