Mold inspection and testing includes a variety of techniques to test indoor environments for mold
including non-invasive mold tests that can detect mold in built-in drawers, wallpaper, and insulation, in between walls and under carpeting. Most insurance policies will only pay for mold damage if a mold problem is proven through a certified mold inspection and testing service. Mold inspection and testing can check for all kinds of mold including toxic black mold. Mold inspection and testing is important for people who have allergies. Mold can develop in hidden areas. If allergy symptoms arise it is wise to call on a mold inspection and testing service to locate the source of mold. Mold inspection and testing services can help improve the air quality and general environment of a home or business by locating the source of mold. Special equipment such as bore scopes and round hole saws may be used. Lab tests will determine if the mold found is toxic or simply cosmetic mold. Cosmetic mold does not contain dangerous pathogens and does not have to be removed. Mold inspection can identify if mold is toxic or cosmetic, thereby avoiding the unnecessary expense of a mold removal project.
