With the ever-growing awareness of indoor air pollutants and the effects they can have on homes and the individuals that live in them, the public has become increasingly more concerned about the potential health risks that exist within their own homes as a result of environmental health hazards. The public can now take the necessary steps to guard their families and property by purchasing Home Safety Test Kits manufactured by PRO-LAB available at leading mass merchants and now available at select Wal-Mart stores around the country.

Mold is the number one cause of allergies. Mold release spores causing many health conditions ranging from asthma, brain damage – even death. Professional Laboratories, Inc., manufacturer and distributor of a complete line of the PRO-LAB brand home safety test kits, offers a Do-It-Yourself Mold Test Kit that is a safe, reliable and easy to use test kit to detect these potentially deadly parasites. These test kits are available to the general public at over 40,000 leading home centers, hardware stores, pharmacy chains, supermarkets, and a wide category of specialty outlets – stores include The Home Depot, Lowe’s, Ace Hardware, Kroger, Distribution America, CVS/pharmacy, True Value, Scotty’s, Distribution America -- and now at various Wal-Mart stores.

"Mold thrives in homes, offices and schools. These toxins may be present in your home and without testing for it, you would never know," said James E. McDonnell, a home safety expert and CEO of Professional Laboratories, Inc.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Science Advisory Board (SAB) have consistently ranked indoor air pollution among the TOP FIVE environmental health risks to public health. Extensive media attention and recently enacted legislation have focused on the potential dangers lurking in the friendly confines of the home, school and office.

Before the PRO-LAB Mold Test Kit, homeowners were forced to spend thousands of dollars to hire industrial hygienists to test for mold. "Now, there is an alternative. More than ever, we recommend the use of the PRO-LAB Mold Test Kit to alert homeowners to potential hazards. Using our products will alert residents to potential dangers", McDonnell urges.
