Accurate Mold Detection for Informed Decision-Making
Thorough and Detail-Oriented Mold Testing Process
At Coastal Mold Service, we understand the importance of obtaining accurate results when it comes to mold detection. That’s why we employ a comprehensive approach using Bio Tape Lifts, Direct Swab, or Air Samples for mold testing.
Our mold testing process begins by identifying the type of mold present in your property. We collect samples from different areas, such as walls and floors, to ensure comprehensive analysis. These samples are then sent to an AIHA-LAP accredited laboratory for detailed examination under microscopes. This enables us to determine the specific mold types found.
Learn more about our mold testing methods:
- Air Sampling: To detect mold spores that are not visible to the naked eye, we collect air samples during the inspection. The samples are analyzed in a laboratory, helping us determine the types of mold present and assess the severity of the problem. After remediation, additional air samples are taken to ensure successful mold removal.
- Bio-Tape Sampling: This non-invasive technique involves testing surfaces for mold using tape. It provides valuable information about mold species, contamination levels, and potential airborne spore production. Tape samples can be obtained from various materials without causing damage.
- Swab Sampling: Swab samples are convenient for sampling hard-to-reach areas or very wet surfaces. Sterile surface swabs are rubbed on the suspect area and submitted for laboratory analysis. The sample is cultured, and the type of mold is identified.
