How we Inspect and Test for Mold.
A mold inspection and testing are noninvasive. I will visual inspect for apparent mold symptoms and confirm by sampling the indoor air quality & surface contact swabs/tape lifts. I provide a mold inspection report with photos, lab results, and recommendation for mold remediation, mold clean up or mold removal if required. Turn around time for indoor air test or indoor mold test is 24 hours after the Lab completes the analysis.

What is Mold?
There are hundreds of thousands of different types of molds. They show up in many different colors and shades, most often as black mold. They are living organisms that grow naturally, particularly in warm, damp, humid conditions such as basement and attic where there is little air movement.
Often called “mildew,” molds are related to mushrooms and yeast but are much smaller we can only see or smell mold when there is a large quantity.
Here in Michigan, indoor mold can grow almost anywhere: on carpets, ceilings, walls or furniture. Water leaks, spills from bathtubs or showers, or condensation, can cause mold to grow in your house.
