Mold Testing

Mold Testing in Dallas-Fort Worth

There is no place that is 100% safe from mold growth. Because mold can develop anywhere, keeping our homes and businesses mold-free can be difficult.

Even your HVAC systems are at risk for mold development, which is why it's necessary to keep your HVAC unit and ductwork as clean as possible to prevent mold and other bacteria from circulating through your air. If your HVAC system has mold, your entire home or business and the air you breathe is affected.

To make sure that the indoor air at your home or office is fresh, pure, and mold-free, our trusted partners offer mold testing services for residential and commercial customers throughout Dallas-Fort Worth

Mold Testing for Indoor Air Quality

Mold testing determines if you have a mold problem in your home and calculates the exact number of mold spores in your indoor air. This is important because it affects the indoor air that you breathe and you could unknowingly suffer from mold allergies even if there's no mold growth in your home.

Mold testing is one of the first steps to getting rid of your mold problems. Mold testing consists of detailed visual inspection with air and surface sampling. When mold testing is done, we can better determine if there are any areas throughout your property that encourage mold growth.

Mold Tests in DFW by Dalworth's Trusted Partners

There are actually three types of mold tests that will help determine your specific situation. These mold tests are called: 

  • Air Sampling tests - Checks your indoor air for mold spores to see if there is a mold problem even without locating mold.
  • Surface testing - Analyzes surfaces throughout your home with swabbing and tape-lifting techniques, plus a laboratory examination to locate mold spores.
  • Bulk testing - Tests various materials to be examined under a microscope at a laboratory. Bulk testing is one of the best ways to determine the concentration of mold particles in the home.
  • Culture tests - Mold particles in a sample from the home are grown into larger mold colonies in a lab to identify the types of mold in your home.

When performing a culture test, only mold particles that are still alive can be grown. However, dead mold particles in the home still cause allergies and health problems. Other tests can detect both living and non-living mold in a home but can't always identify the species of molds.

Why You Should Test for Mold in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas

The main reasons for having mold testing performed at your home or office include:

  • You notice signs of mold such as a musty odor or mold symptoms
  • To identify the species of mold in your home & safeguard against toxic black mold
  • To find where mold is growing in dark, moist, hard-to-find locations
  • To test indoor air quality by measuring the number of spores in the air
  • To test if all mold in your home has been fully removed

Mold Inspection before Testing

Before you begin running tests, you should have a thorough mold inspection done at your home or office. If the inspection shows mold, you can move onto the mold remediation stage. But if you couldn't find any evidence of mold and still believe you might have a mold problem, it is time to turn to mold testing. Our certified & licensed technicians can set up a variety of tests that will give you closure and provide peace of mind.
