Testing the Air Quality
The only definitive way to ascertain whether a mold issue is occurring is by conducting testing. SERVPRO employs a mold tester to better service our customers.
There are several different types of test which a professional remediation company can conduct. As a company we employ the use of the following two.
Air Quality testing: By testing the air quality and comparing the spore counts between the area in question and a controlled sample from outside, we are able to determine if an issue is occurring as well as the type of mold present and spores counts of each strain. Once we have a beginning spore count we are then able to begin the remediation process. A post test will determine whether the air is now clean.
Tape Samples: Tape sampling is used when obvious discoloration is seen. This method will allow the remediation professional to ascertain the type of spores present. This method is helpful in determining the difference between mold and mildew.
SERVPRO is the leading mold remediation company. By offering both testing and remediation we are a one stop call. We are proud to serve our local Lackawanna and Wayne County communities.
