Difference Between Mold Testing and Mold Inspection
If you suspect you have mold in your house, it’s important to have it inspected by a professional as soon as possible. When the experts arrive, they may perform mold testing and a mold inspection. Learn the difference between each:
- Mold testing: Also referred to as mold sampling, this is used to determine what type of mold is in your property. An expert will test the air or a solid surface. To test the air, the technician typically uses a spore trap to catch mold spores as they pass through the air. In a surface sample, an expert will use a swab or tape to capture a sample of the surface.
- Mold inspection: During an inspection, experts determine if mold is present and what is causing it to grow. A technician may inspect a building’s moisture and humidity levels, and inspect isolated spaces like crawlspaces, attics, and between the walls.
