Difference Between a Mold Inspection and a Mold Test

A mold inspection without a mold test is based on what our certified mold assessors can physically see.  It is purely a visual inspection which is always a great start to determine your situation. A certified mold assessor will be able to give you a better, more reliable mold inspection with a certified laboratory test.  A mold test will more accurately verify if a mold infestation problem exists. As certified specialists, we normally recommend mold testing but it’s not required in every situation. A post analysis mold test, once remediation is complete is always recommended.

A Mold Inspection gives You:

  • A visual inspection for services
  • A moisture level analysis with digital hygrometer reading
  • Recommendations for controlling moisture levels

A Certified Mold Test gives You:

  • Lab-certified scientific analysis which identifies species and concentration of mold
  • Written laboratory report with full scientific analysis
  • Visual inspection and assessment for mold remediation services if needed

The most common type of mold test is the air cassette tape. There’s also a stick or tape test, a sterile swab test and a bulk or material sample test. A mold test takes the guesswork out of a mold inspection and will give you verifiable information as to whether you need mold remediation work or not.

The Cost of Testing

The cost of a mold test varies depending on the type and number of tests taken. Each situation is different, but we provide testing quotes for our customers.

The minimum charge for a testing service is $250.00. That is for a 2-sample test. Each additional test is $75.00.
