Understanding Mold Surveys

Mold surveys are typically undertaken to ascertain if there is a mold problem in a building or facility. Pointers to such a problem could include the occupants of the home coming down with respiratory diseases or allergic reactions. When undertaking a mold survey, experts will typically carry out three kinds of tests:

Air Tests

Here, mold experts take air samples to test for mold spores. This test helps mold experts to know if there is a mold problem in the house even before they can locate the actual mold growth.

Surface Tests

When performing surface tests, experts take samples (through swab collection, tape lifting, etc.) from a variety of surfaces. The samples are then sent to our laboratories for testing.

Bulk Tests

The third way is where mold specialists collect pieces of suspect materials from the property for examination.


By running these three tests and conducting a visual survey, mold experts will have a good idea about the extent and origin of the mold problem.

Why Do You Need Mold Surveys?

Mold surveys help a homeowner to scientifically ascertain the type of mold that's present and the extent of the infestation. Not all molds are poisonous and understanding which kind of mold is present in your building will help you determine what to do about it. Mold surveys are also undertaken in case the building has a flooding issue and part of the rehabilitation process of the building is to rule out any mold problems.
