Residential Mold Testing: Unbiased Testing

One of the key aspects to testing for mold is to remove bias. At RestorePro Reconstruction we use an independent third-party, non-biased, hygienist company to perform pre and post-mold cleanup testing. Pre mold removal testing insures that your home, for one, has dangerous mold. Post mold cleanup testing insures that the harmful mold has been remediated your home. Removing this bias is essential to ensuring the job needs to be done, and that the job was done correctly.  

  • Non-Viable Air Sampling: The most common type of mold testing, non-viable air sampling uses lab testing of samples from both outside and inside of the home to provide identification and counts of mold spores and fragments. Non-viable air sampling results take about three days.
  • Viable Air Samples: Viable air samples use cultures to determine the concentration of spores in the air and if conditions are present to promote spore growth. Viable air sample results take between 10 and 14 days.
  • Swab Samples: Swab samples are taken from visible mold for the purpose of identification. The results are available in about three days, but samples may have variables that affect the reliability of swab sample testing.
  • Visual Inspection: The experts at RestorePro Reconstruction perform visual inspections on areas of the home that tend to be problematic for mold growth. The removal of baseboards or a small amount of drywall are often used in visual inspections.

RestorePro Restoration's Mold Removal Process:

RestorePro Reconstruction has an expert residential mold removal division whose aim is to improve the quality of indoor air in homes. Depending on the severity of mold, residential mold remediation and removal may require simple cleaning for smaller mold issues or removal or demolition in extensive mold growth cases. No matter the severity of mold growth in your home, containment of mold is key. Areas that contain visible mold need to be contained to prevent the spread and contamination of unaffected areas. Plastic barriers and sheet-plastic/PVC tubing chambers are common methods of mold containment for homes in Raleigh, NC.  Contaminated areas are HEPA filtered to prevent the flow of particulates like spores and other contaminants from moving to unaffected areas via air-flow.

If drywall, wood, or other types of materials need to be removed from the home, the RestorePro Reconstruction technicians bag the material prior to removal from the contaminated area to ensure cross-contamination is prevented. All surfaces within the contaminated area are cleaned with a fungicide and HEPA-vacuumed after demolition and initial cleaning are performed.
