What are the different types of mold that can be found in the home?
Homes can harbor a variety of mold species, each with its unique characteristics. Some common types include:
Aspergillus: This is a widespread mold genus found indoors and outdoors. It can lead to allergic reactions and respiratory issues.
Penicillium: Often found on materials with high cellulose content, it can cause allergic reactions and produce mycotoxins.
Cladosporium: Commonly found outdoors but can also grow indoors. It may trigger allergies and respiratory problems.
Stachybotrys (black mold): Infamous for its toxic potential, this mold is less common but can cause severe health issues if left untreated.
If you suspect your health is being affected by mold exposure, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for a thorough and accredited lab assessment.
What is mold testing?
Mold testing involves the collection of samples from your environment to determine the presence and types of mold present. These samples are then analyzed by a third party laboratory setting. The testing process helps us understand the extent of mold contamination, identify potential health risks, and formulate an appropriate plan for mold removal and remediation. If you’re experiencing symptoms like persistent coughing, sneezing, or respiratory issues, mold testing can help identify whether mold is contributing to these problems.
What kind of allergens can be found in the home?
Your home can contain various allergens that contribute to respiratory problems and allergies. Common indoor allergens include:
Dust Mites: Microscopic organisms found in bedding, upholstered furniture, and carpets.
Pet Dander: Tiny skin particles shed by pets like cats and dogs.
Pollen: Airborne particles from plants, which can enter your home through windows and doors.
Mold Spores: Microscopic particles released by mold that can become airborne and lead to respiratory issues.
If you suspect these allergens are causing your symptoms, our experts can help identify and mitigate them.

Yes, assessing indoor air quality is vital for several reasons. Poor air quality can lead to various health issues, especially for those with allergies, asthma, or respiratory conditions. Mold, allergens, and pollutants can exacerbate these problems. Regular air quality assessments help identify potential hazards and allow for timely intervention to create a healthier living environment.

What does a post mold remediation assessment include?
After mold remediation, we perform a post-assessment to ensure the effectiveness of the remediation process. Our experts will inspect the treated areas, conduct additional sampling if necessary, and compare the results to the pre-remediation data. This assessment confirms that mold levels have been successfully reduced and that your indoor air quality has improved following the remediation efforts. If you’ve recently undergone mold remediation and your symptoms persist, our assessment can validate the success of the process.
