While basic mold testing begins with a visual inspection, effective mold testing includes a deeper, more thorough process. It involves taking samples of the air, surfaces, and wall cavities in your home. At Zona Restoration, we know that mold spores are not visible to the naked eye. They can only be found with highly detailed sampling methods. Our team performs the three mold assessments below in order to determine if there is indeed evidence of mold spores inside your Phoenix area home. 

3 Effective Methods We Use to Test for Mold in Your Home

1. Air Sampling

Mold can be found in the air as well as on surfaces within your home. We conduct air sampling tests in order to discover if there are mold spores present in your house. When mold spores are discovered with no visible sign of mold in the home, this is proof there is a mold problem somewhere. We simply need to do some more digging to find out where. 

2. Surface Sampling

Next, we dust, tape, and swab various surfaces of your home, searching for any invisible signs of mold. Not only will this tell us if there’s mold present, but it will also tell us the exact type of mold that’s inside your home. We can recommend the right kind of mold remediation process by applying this type of a thorough mold detection assessment.

3. Wall Cavity Sampling

Not only can mold be found in the air and on surfaces in your home, but it can also be found within the building materials themselves – the walls, ceilings, and floors. When mold is found in a particular area of the home, our mold inspectors remove materials within the contaminated area to determine the exact concentration of mold. They make a small hole in the wall, inject a thin tube, and then pull an air sample out of the tiny cavity.
