Mold testing involves taking a sample of either the air or a surface. Essentially, we test the air or surface to find out what kind of mold exists and/or if the mold found is able to grow in the area tested.
WHY SHOULD I TEST FOR MOLD?
The presence of mold in your home can impact your investment considerably. Even more importantly, unabated mold exposure over extended periods of time may result in serious adverse health effects.
Based on individual sensitivity levels, reactions to mold can differ from person to person. Inhalation of poisonous spores becomes more likely if those spores are present indoors. According to the CDC, individuals with heightened sensitivities, allergies, or asthma may experience “intense reactions” to mold exposure.

HOW WE TEST
To keep you and your home safe from mold exposure, CSI inspectors will test the air in your home and immediately send it to a leading analytic lab for expert results. If any mold presence becomes obvious during the sampling phase or is pointed out to a CSI inspector by a property owner, we can also swab the area and expedite it to our lab partners for additional analysis.
Our mold testers won’t just hand you a complicated report jammed full of numbers and data. CSI will provide you with a detailed report that will help you understand the results.. While a homeowner may need mold inspections regularly, these tests are crucial to protect both buyers and sellers during real estate transactions.
