Mold Testing

If needed, PNW Mold Control provides air quality testing, surface (tape) testing, and air spore viability testing to determine the mold level of your home.

  1. Air Quality Testing: The most common form of testing in the industry, and usually requires a 75-liter air sample from inside the building that is pulled through a small filter.
  2. Surface (Tape) Test: Good for determining the type of mold if you can visually see mold growth in your home.
  3. Air Spore Viability Testing: Best test for determining whether or not the mold in your home is living (ie. viable) and thus able to produce mycotoxins or not. This is also the best test for determining whether a remediation treatment was successful or not. This test is done by sampling air from the home and having the lab attempt to culture or regrow any airborne spores that are caught.

Each test will be run through an independent, third-party lab which will generate a report we will send you with a detailed explanation of their findings. This will help you determine the best course of action in your remediation project.
