Got Mold, Mildew, or Fungus?

Updated: Jun 9, 2023

There are thousands of known types of mold in our world, but only a small handful of these are confirmed to be hazardous to our health. Mold is in the fungus family of organisms, which favor damp, stale areas to grow.

How can you tell if that fungal growth is mold or even hazardous? The best and most accurate method is by having a trained inspector collect samples of the suspected substance and send it to a lab for thorough analysis. It often takes several days to a week for the results to come back.

The bonus to these tests is that not only do the lab results confirm the presence and identify the type of mold, the lab reports also identify other known allergens found in the test sample (which could be direct or air samples, depending on the specific inspection).

On a side note, never use bleach to clean mold/mildew from porous surfaces, all it does is slow it down and doesn't kill it, and it creates a more hazardous environment. Its best to let a qualified mold remediation specialist clean the stuff up for you to reduce chances of regrowth.
