Why Do It Yourself At Home Mold Test Kits Do Not Work

Why Do It Yourself Mold Kits Don’t Work

• Mold samples are often misleading or simply wrong (i.e. due to error). You need a professional to interpret the results.
• DIY Home Mold Test Kits will never be able to include a visual inspection conducted by a certified mold professional. The SafeAir mold inspection includes not only sampling but also a comprehensive visual inspection to detect issues and problems related to mold that may not be evident to the naked eye.
• You cannot escape mold, mold is everywhere. Every property has some small amount of mold. So when that test strip/petri dish from your DIY kit that you bought from a big box hardware store tells you that you have mold, is it really providing you with any useful information? No, if you suspect that your property has a mold problem, but you cannot see it or smell it a DIY kit will not help you locate that problem area nor will it tell you how serious the problem is.
• We sell mold inspections of course we wouldn’t want you purchasing a DIY kit, Right? Wrong. Here’s what U.S. Government EPA says, verbatim: “Sampling for mold should be conducted by professionals who have specific experience in designing mold sampling protocols, sampling methods, and interpreting results. Sample analysis should follow analytical methods recommended by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH), or other professional organizations.” such as SafeAir Certified Mold Inspection Inc, providing mold and air quality testing in the Atlanta area.
