Testing for Mold

When our mold assessment and inspection service experts at Rapid Response Restoration test for mold in your residence, we thoroughly investigate all areas of your home for any sign of mold growth. A home assessment for mold includes taking samples from the air and surfaces of your home. We will also complete a visible inspection of common areas of mold growth for any signs, including discoloration.

If the tests discover the presence of mold, we will also test to determine the mold species growing in your home. All of this information helps identify the cause of the growth of fungal spores so you can take mitigating steps to prevent it in the future.

Types of Mold

Certain types of mold may affect you more than others. Common types of mold include:

  • Black mold (stachybotrys)—You find this type of mold in areas with water damage or typically damp areas of a home such as a basement or crawl space.
  • Aspergillus—This type of mold is what can grow on food. You will find it both indoors and outdoors.
  • Cladosporium—There are more than 500 species of cladosporium. You’ll find this type of mold in damp areas of your home.

Professional mold testing is necessary to determine what type is present in your home.

Dangers of Mold

If mold is contaminating your home, it is vital to remove it as soon as possible. Living with mold growth in your home can lead to:
