For this sampling method a clear tape or swab sample will gather suspicious substances that could be mold. Product accumulated on the tape or swab will be evaluated by an independent Crystal Lake laboratory.
Air sampling is one of the most effective approach for establishing whether mold spores exist in a specific area. Our guideline incorporates the Air-o-Cell cassette. Air quality is examined by sampling 15 cubic liters of air per minute and pulling the airborne fragments over a glass substrate. This procedure takes 1-5 minutes depending on various conditions in the home or office. This sample is then sent out to an independent lab where the spores are determined and counted. An exterior “control” example is additionally required to identify a baseline “typical” mold count to establish the volume of molds in the natural surroundings as well as compare to the interior sample.
An independent lab will do the mold testing for these samples and will send us the results, which we will immediately pass on to you, the client.

We will also assist you determine what is creating the underlying moisture issue in the home that is allowing the mold to grow.
