Step 1: Set an Appointment at Your Convenience
The first step is to set an appointment to have a state-licensed mold inspector visit your location. We offer flexible scheduling Monday through Saturday. Just fill out the form or call us to speak with one of our friendly experts.
Step 2: Visual Mold Inspection
We will begin the process with a thorough Multi-Point Inspection. An exterior inspection of the property will be conducted to look for potential microbial growth, unusual humidity levels, and water intrusion. The interior inspection will include a visual check for mold, humidity, and temperature readings of each room, and inspection of your HVAC system. Based on the results of the visual mold inspection recommendations will be made for the sampling process.
Step 3: Collection of Mold Test Samples:
The second part of the mold test is the collection of samples. An interior air quality sample will be taken as well as an exterior air quality sample for comparison. As an added bonus, MACTexas performs a swab sample of the HVAC system to provide additional insight into the interior air quality. Additional samples can be taken at the discretion of our certified inspector or at your request.
Step 4: Lab Testing
Once the mold test is completed, the biological samples are overnighted to a third party Certified Microbiology Laboratory under Chain of Custody. Once the environmental samples are received and properly logged into the laboratory, analysis begins. The results of the mold test samples will usually be available between 3-7 business days with the option to expedite your results.
Step 5: Discuss Lab Results with A Senior Mold Assessment Consultant
The last step in the process is our consultation call. Once the lab results have been returned, a Senior Mold Assessment Consultant will contact you to discuss any results that need your attention, including any potential follow-up steps and assistance in mold remediation, litigation, or even find a health care provider. You will also receive a certified test report with all the findings of the mold test.
