That’s a question a lot of people ask. They’ve heard talk about mold in the media and how it can be dangerous. But then they look around their house and maybe the spot a few moldy areas, and they spray those areas, thinking they’ve solved the problem.
They may have solved that mold problem, but mold could exist in many places they’re not aware of. When MoldRemovalPhiladelphia.net performs mold testing in PA, we’re experts not only at finding it but also at using specialized procedures to detect microscopic airborne and surface mold.
The three primary methods we use in testing for mold are trapping airborne mold on a sticky disk, swabbing mold spores from surfaces and removing from the structure items such as cushions, carpet, sheetrock, etc., on which we believe mold exists.
These samples are then sent to a laboratory, where they are analyzed to determine the amount of mold and also its species.
Another question people ask is, Will all mold harm all people? The answer to that question, thankfully, is no. But there’s a problem. Everyone has a different level of mold sensitivity, and among the thousands of species of mold, some have been shown to be highly toxic to humans. Mold testing in PA followed by mold removal is the only way to absolutely ensure you won’t be harmed by this fungus.
