  Sampling
   
 
  • Air Sampling

    Air samples test for viable (living) black mold. Mold Sampling and Testing for viable mold is done by placing the sample onto agar culture medium that supports the growth of the organism(s) in question and allows identification of the species and level of contamination. When colonization occurs one black mold has overtaken your entire home. Colonization is the formation of compact population groups of the same type of black mold and mildew species.

    Air samples also test for nonviable (dead) black mold. Mold Testing for nonviable mold is done by microscopic examination of the sample to identify fungal and non-fungal particles that may be allergenic to individuals.

  • Bulk Sampling

    Bulk samples include, but are not limited to, chunks of carpet, insulation, and wallboards. Bulk samples are collected from visibly moldy surfaces by scraping or cutting materials with a clean tool and placing the sample into a petri dish mold sampling and for testing.

  • Surface Sampling

    Surface samples are collected by wiping a measured area with a sterile swab or by lifting a sample with bio tape. The surface sample is cultured and then placed into a petri dish. After allowing 3 - 7 days for the samples to show visible fungal growth, the petri dish is inspected by a lab technician under a microscope so that the fungi can be removed and identified by species.
  Mold Sampling and Testing is necessary where:

 
  • Health concerns are a problem

  • Litigation is involved

  • The source(s) of the mold contamination is unclear
  Mold Sampling and Testing allows us to:

 
  • Locate the source of mold contamination

  • Identify some of the mold species present

  • Differentiate between mold and soot or dirt
