During mold inspections, we carefully examine looking for the existence of a nasty fungus that thrives in damp areas such as basements or bathrooms. Mold has a knack for concealing itself in inconspicuous areas like behind walls or beneath carpets. Mold spreads through tiny airborne particles which are visually undetectable but can have harmful impacts on our well-being. That is why it is imperative to diligently examine for mold and promptly address it before it escalates into a significant issue.
Store-bought mold tests are unreliable for several reasons. First of all, DIY kits often lack essential components, necessitating additional purchases. Secondly, most DIY test kits yield positive results due to the ubiquitous presence of mold and mold spores, even in meticulously clean homes. Moreover, the instructions typically provide an address for sending samples to a so-called "lab." However, it remains uncertain whether this "lab" is certified or accredited.
Another important thing to consider is how quickly and carefully we examine samples when they are delivered. It is really important that we do this on time and get the most accurate results. Mold grows fast and if not addressed promptly, it can spread to other areas of the home.
Even if a positive result is obtained, it remains unclear whether the mold presence is minimal or extensive, and whether it poses any harm. Furthermore, the duration of time the kit has spent on the store shelf without an expiration date raises questions. And the bigger question is what about hidden mold?
