Mold Inspection and Testing By Expert Microbiologists
How to Remove Black Mold Safely
To Remove Black Mold Safely, Test Mold Samples For Toxicity First!
Before mold removal, it is important to perform mold inspection and testing in order to determine whether you have toxic mold in your home or office and the extent of mold growth. Mold removal depends primarily on the scale, or size, of the mold growth. Mold growth is categorized as small (Level l), medium (Level II), or large (Level III), with appropriate measures or procedures established for each level. Level III mold removal is the most expensive. Without a mold inspection and testing you’re likely to pay too much for mold removal.
Should you do the mold removal yourself?
Whether you can do the mold removal yourself depends on a number of factors. One consideration is the size of the area covered by visible mold growth (i.e., is it level I, II, or III?). The size of the area covered by mold is determined during mold inspection and testing. It’s important to note that only 20% of mold growth is visible. That’s why mold inspection and testing is important to determine accurately the level of mold growth. If the area covered by mold growth is less than about 10 square feet (less than roughly a 3 ft. by 3 ft. patch), in most cases, you can remove the mold yourself safely. Your mold removal should not be based on guesswork but on properly conducted mold inspection and testing.
