“Dangerous mold colonies frequently grow out of sight inside heating and air conditioning systems, attics, crawl spaces, walls, and ceilings,” warned Mr. Fry, author of five mold advice books: (1) Mold Health Guide; (2) Mold Legal Guide; (3) Mold Monsters (4) Do It Best Yourself Mold Inspection, Testing, Remediation, and Prevention; and (5) Mold Home Remedy Recipes.
Effective residential and business mold inspection requires an in depth physical investigation of the entire house or structure for water damage and mold infestation as well as collecting samples of visible mold growth, air samples of room air and of the outward air flow from the heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and ducts, and an outdoor mold control air test taken for comparison purposes.
Mold samples and air samples are then analyzed by an accredited mold analysis laboratory to identify the types of mold species and to count the number of mold spores (nonviable analysis) or mold colonies (viable analysis) present in the analyzed mold samples.
“If indoor mold samples contain more mold spores or mold colonies, and/or different types of mold spores and mold colonies, than contained in the outdoor mold control test, those differences are indicative of an indoor mold problem,” according to the Frys, who are also Certified Environmental Hygienists, Certified Mold Remediators, and Certified Ozone Professionals.
