Testing For Mold
Testing for mold is the best way to determine if you have a mold problem. If you can see it and smell it, you can sometimes skip the testing to save money but you NEVER want to skip the final testing.
As Angie Hicks explains in a recent article:
“Do the remediation and then do the post test because the post test is going to be very important to make sure that the remediation was done properly,” said Angie’s List founder, Angie Hicks.
Also, make sure the company you hire explains who will be testing your samples.
“It’s important for consumers to confirm that the company they are hiring do the testing is going to send the sample out to a third-party, an independent third-party for analysis because you want separation between those two activities. You don’t want the company selling you remediation to be analyzing whether you need it,” said Hicks.
