Check Your Home for Mold

Mold is capable of growing in damp places, behind walls, under floors, above ceiling tiles and behind shower walls. Mold feeds on wet cellulose material such as wood, ceiling tiles and plasterboard. It's also capable of gathering inside air-conditioning and heating systems. Water is essential for mold to spread. When water is left unattended for even 24 hours, common molds are capable of forming. An even more dangerous version of mold can spread if water is left unattended in a completely saturated area.

Lab Analysis from NIOSH Certified Lab

Lab analysis of $10 per bulk sample submitted will specify the type of mold growth. Preprinted envelops are included to ship your samples to Cardinal Laboratories in Beaumont, TX. You will receive your results in five to seven days.
