If you are worried about mold in your North Carolina home, you may be tempted to do a mold test yourself. You’ve seen them at the hardware store before. The “kit” is basically just a Petri dish. The point of the kit is that if you leave the Petri dish out and there is mold growth, you have mold in your home. Next, you send your Petri dish in to their labs. This is where your affordable, do it yourself kit becomes a costly hassle.

And here’s the kicker. There’s a flaw in their system. It doesn’t matter how clean and safe your home is. Unless you live in a hermetically sealed bubble, there are mold spores (and pollen, skin flakes, bug exoskeletons, etc.) in the air in your home. You are guaranteed to grow mold in your Petri dish!

The other thing to know is this: Your Petri dish test can’t tell you about the mold levels in your home. That is to say, there is no way for the Petri dish to tell you how the levels mold in your home compare to the levels of mold outside of your home. That is a vitally important part of mold inspection and just can’t happen with DIY kits. Even when it’s sent into the labs, there’s no way of knowing. The test kit can tell you what kinds of mold are in your home, and whether they are dangerous, but they can’t tell you about your mold levels. That means the test is inconclusive. It’s a fatal flaw.
