There is a lot of confusion when the word MOLD is used. There are thousands of types of mold and only a limited number of them can cause health problems, however the ones that do cause health issues can be very dangerous. Mold exists everywhere there is moisture and food, the greater the moisture the more mold can thrive. Only a lab analyzed sample taken by a trained professional can identify the type and amount of mold present. People often ask why should I pay for a professional environmental test that doesn't include any remediation. The answer is simple. The testing will be accurate and unbiased. Often the only remediation needed is surface cleaning and moisture reduction through the use of a dehumidifier. If the services of a remediation company are needed it will be recommended.
