Minnesota Image Slide Mold Testing and Inspections

Whether you’re in Minnesota, or anywhere else, if you’ve got mold, you’ve got questions. One question we commonly receive is, “will air quality testing benefit my home?” Not only will air quality sampling benefit your home, it can also benefit your health. Air quality sampling for mold or background debris such as skin fragments, pet dander, plant fiber etc. can be very helpful in determining the origins of various health issues. Obviously, we are a mold testing company. However, if you hire Mold Test USA to do your mold sampling we will be able to test your background debris as well.

We find that a lot of times doctors will request air sampling especially if you suffer from allergies, chronic sinus problems, frequent dizziness, migraines, seizures,  etc. This will help your doctor determine the source of the illness, whether it’s mold or another environmental allergy.

 

How Does Air Quality Sampling Work?

To perform air quality testing in your home, our mold inspectors utilize a pump that resembles a small air compressor. Instead of pushing air out, this machine pulls air through a house and into a chamber. There are small cassettes attached that holds a microscope slide with adhesive on it.  As air flows in and around that microscope slide, air particles stick to it.

Once the air quality sample has been collected, it is sent to a laboratory for testing. There, the cassette is opened and the slide is carefully removed and analyzed under a microscope. This is how our biologists and microbiologists are able to determine exactly what is floating around inside of your home.

 

So Much More Than Mold…

It may seem counter-intuitive to worry about pet dander if you don’t own a pet, but if you live in a rental and the former tenants had pets, you may be suffering without even realizing the origin of your symptoms. Having mold removal and remediation services performed in your home without first having a full environmental inspection could mean wasting hundreds of dollars or more on unnecessary remediation services.

Often, mold remediation companies will have “free or cheap” mold testing as a promotional offer. This may seem like a great idea, but there are some things to consider. A mold remediation company at first, makes its money doing just that, mold remediation. They have a vested interest in finding mold in your home. Secondly, even if they do perform a full mold inspection, it is unlikely that they will perform air quality testing, so there’s a chance you still won’t know the true cause of your symptoms. 3) Even if you do have mold, not all of it requires expensive and invasive mold remediation. 

Don’t suffer from unknown allergies. Also, do not waste your time and money on potentially unnecessary services. Instead call Mold Test USA today for your full environmental allergen and air quality inspection.
