The kit includes a vacuum sample dust collector, sterile swab and payment form.
To have your sample analyzed, mail it with the completed forms and Pro-Lab will send back the results within seven business days. Lab Analysis ($40) is available which identifies the type (genus name) of mold present. (Lab fees are extra and are not included in the TestCountry price.) Pro-Lab tests for all types of molds and lists descriptions of each mold. The results even display whether or not your home or office contains elevated levels of mold or not.
If you have any reason to suspect mold in your home or office space, it's imperative to confirm whether it's toxic as soon as possible. The Pro-Lab Incorporated MO109 offers three sampling methods. This mold test kit tests for mold in the air using the included settling plate, and can also test the quality of the air coming through your ventilation system. Additionally, you can swab visual mold growth in your home.
When conducting air testing, Pro-Lab recommends purchasing at least two kits to perform both indoor and outdoor testing to form a basis of comparison. The outdoor kit serves as a baseline. If more mold growth occurs in the inside plate than the outside plate, it is an indication that you may have elevated mold levels inside your home. You need one kit per area of concern, and each kit can test up to 1,000 square feet within a room.
