THE PRO-LAB® MOLD TEST KIT offers four (4) easy sampling methods. The first two (2) air sampling methods can indicate the presence of a hidden or an elevated mold problem in as little as 48 hours. If mold growth occurs after the air sample is taken, an Optional Lab Analysis ($40) is available which identifies the type (genus name) of mold present. If you see mold growing in your home or office, the third or fourth method allows you to take a sample and send it to our laboratory for analysis to determine the type (genus name) of mold present.
A minimum of two (2) test kits are required for air sampling in order to compare indoor to outdoor air quality. The first sample should be taken indoors in the area of concern. The second sample should be taken outdoors. If the results of the test indicate that the amount of mold growth indoors is significantly greater than the mold growth outdoors or if the type(s) of mold found indoors are significantly different than the mold outdoors, you may have a mold problem. One mold test kit is needed for each indoor area of concern.
