Professional Mold Testing by and Expert

If you suspect that your home has a moisture/mold problem don't hesitate to take action and get your home tested now so that you know exactly what "TYPE" of mold it is.  Putting it off and waiting is dangerous for the health of your family and pets.  

After being involved in the toxic mold industry now since my 2010 catastrophy, I've learned almost everything there is to know about mold testing, I'm pretty much an expert now at knowing what kind of tests need to be run to "REALLY' determine the full picture of any indoor environment.  Most people think just running an air test in one room or getting some mold kit and laying out a bunch of petri dishes will be fine but actuality, "it's not" ok nor is it safe to rely on methods that (DON'T SHOW TOXIC MOLDS).  There is a complete science to understanding what floats in the air versus what's clinging to dust particles on the ground or in carpet fibers as well as how water-prone areas can be more toxic than other areas.  I can't tell you how many people DON'T TEST THEIR HOME CORRECTLY and waste hundreds of dollars and risk the progression of toxic mold illness as a result of botched or inadequate testing. 



I'm happy to announce the launch of my new website


 

Through this process I have met hundreds of expert mold testing professionals.  In October, 2018 I launched a new company called: www.HomeTestingPros.com  The company is owned and operated by myself and another partner.  I have hand-picked each and every mold testing inspector that is listed on my new website and I'm helping to educate hundreds of mold testing professionals in the US on the dangers of environmental illness and the role that testing has in helping victims heal from this tragic exposure. 

If you are serious about testing your home "RIGHT" the first time go to my new website at http://www.HomeTestingPros.com and fill out an inspection and testing appointment form and one of the "Trusted Expert Mold Inspectors"  that we helped train on Environmental Ilnesses and proper testing techniques will call you to schedule your appointment to come out and properly test your home using possible ERMI/HERTSMI - dust, air tests and swab any visible colonies. (Please only fill out the form if you are ready to take action.)  

How much does Mold Testing

(by an "Environmental Illness-trained expert") cost? 

Thorough Inspection: Will be between $150-$300 depending on the size of the home or if there are hard to reach attic or crawl space areas. 
Air Testing: Will be between $200-$300 (for one outside/control sample and one inside room sample).  Most additional room samples cost between $75 - $150 each additional room. 
Swab/Tape samples - Each small area physical samples will be $75 - $150 per sample (This is for visible mold colonies you are concerned about)
ERMI Test - ERMI tests (Done yourself) cost about $275, however most people do not collect the samples correctly.  If you want your expert technician to do it for you it will cost an additional $100-$150. 

This 4 methods will tell you "everything" you need to know about the possible mold in your home.
