Mold Testing and Locating

Moisture and mold in homes go hand in hand. Mold requires a source of moisture and a food source to exist. Moisture intrusion, in an external wall cavity creates an environment that allows mold to attack the structure, causing wood rot, insect infestation, finish failures, and mold growth. Moisture, in its vapor form, allows mold to grow in places of your home that you probably don’t even know exist. Besides causing your home to rot, mold growth potentially impacts the health and well-being of the people within. These reasons are why Certified Moisture Testing offers mold inspections. We know where to look for moisture intrusion and the mold it causes.

Mold inspection for leaky windows - CMT

We at CMT start air quality comparative testing to determine if there is a non-visible mold problem inside the home. Air quality testing is simply collecting the mold spores in a specific volume of air, both inside and outside of the home. We then use unbiased labs to determine the species and their quantities of spores found in each sample. If the lab results show species on the interior and not outside, or if the results show higher spore counts on the interior of species found both inside and outside, there is likely a source of mold in the home. While we are doing the air sampling, we visually inspect the interior of the home to possibly identify locations of visible mold. Remember, we know moisture and know where to look. If the air sample results show interior mold, you now have a starting place to begin the cleanup and stopping the cause of the mold.
