This helps when determining if the mold is elevated beyond the outside air that we normally breathe. If we as mold inspectors are able to see microbial growth visibly, we can do what is called a direct ID sample. This will tell us exactly what we are looking at and help us to identify what type of mold we see. Sometimes just the mere presence of certain mold spores is and can be very dangerous.
- What is the location or the source of the mold growth?
A lot of times the location or the source of the mold is more obvious, such as when you have or have had any type of water damage, or leaking faucet, leaking roof, etc. other times it is more difficult to locate the source of water intrusion open parentheses or moisture).
