If you are worried about mold in your Missouri home, you may be tempted to get a do it yourself mold test. You have probably seen them at the hardware store before. The “kit” is actually little more than a Petri dish. The idea behind the kit above all, is that you leave the Petri dish out in your home. If mold grows, it means you have a mold problem. The next step is to send in your Petri dish to their labs. That’s when the affordable do it yourself kit becomes a costly, and inconclusive, project.

Also, there’s a flaw in the system. It really doesn’t matter how clean and safe your home is. Unless you live in a hermetically sealed bubble, there are mold spores (and pet dander, skin flakes, pollen, etc.) flying around in your home. What your Petri dish kit won’t tell you is whether or not the levels of mold in your home are elevated beyond the levels of mold outside. That’s an important part of mold testing that simply cannot happen with a do it yourself kit whereas contacting a professional. Even when it’s sent into the labs. They can tell you what kind of mold spores are flying around in your air, and whether they are dangerous, but they cannot tell you about mold levels.

But What About the Cost?

By the time you finish paying for a Petri dish to grow mold in your Missouri home or place of business, you could have hired a professional mold testing company to come in and give you accurate, complete testing. There are other benefits to having a professional mold testing company perform your home inspection versus the do it yourself kit or hiring a mold remediation company to do it.

For starters, you’ll be aware of more than just the types of mold that are in your home and whether they are toxic. Even common, non-toxic molds such as Pencillium, that give us things like penicillin and blue cheese, can be harmful to your health at elevated levels. When you know how your mold levels measure up, you’ll know if an expensive and invasive mold remediation service is even necessary. You may be able to get away with a small air filter system.

 

Why Do I Have a Sudden Mold Problem?

Missouri is a hot and humid place in the summer. And in the winter, it is a cold and humid place. In other words, that any time of year can spell disaster to you. Whether it’s summer storm water seeping into your basement or winter snow leaking through your roof, mold is a nasty side effect of Missouri life.

According to the EPA, mold can come from a variety of sources, including:

  • Moisture
  • Water Problems or Water Leaking
  • Indoor Humidity
  • Decreased Ventilation
  • Condensation From windows, pipes, roofs and floors
