What is Mold Testing? Know if Your DFW Home is Mold-Free

Mold is a common problem in many types of buildings and settings. Not only does it cause property damage but also a number of health issues. Most often it is caused by water damage. That is why routine mold testing is so important. Broadly speaking, it is the inspection of the air or surface of a premise by a mold inspector to find out the presence, type, and growth pattern of mold in the area. They also develop remediation protocols based on assessments.

Home Mold Testing

Home Mold Testing: All That DFW Metroplex Residence Need to Know

A home mold testing is an inspection carried out to find out the presence of water damage and mold growth on building materials and personal contents throughout a home.

A mold inspection consists of a visual inspection for mold growth, moisture mapping for hidden leaks, air sampling, surface sampling, and checking the air conditioning for mold. Every inspection can be different as some could be limited in nature.

How Mold Assessment is Done in North Texas

For home mold testing, air samples and surface samples are generally taken to determine how mold is affecting the indoor building environment. Once samples are collected, they are overnighted or dropped off at a third-party laboratory for analysis. Results from the lab are typically available within 48 hours and a report is generated by the inspector based on the visual findings and lab results.

Remediation protocols are then formed based on the assessment. Mold remediation companies like Dalworth Restoration then follow these guidelines to give estimates and carry out the mold cleaning process.

The time required in the home for mold testing can be up to two hours depending on the size of the home.

Importance of Mold Testing

Ensure Your Home Is Safe

Every home has a certain amount of mold. Mold testing will be necessary to determine how much mold is present and what species of mold. Mold testing may also provide information regarding a possible hidden mold problem within the walls, source of the mold problem (e.g. is it airborne or not),etc.

Buying A House

Getting a mold inspection before buying a home is beneficial as a general home inspection typically excludes mold. This ensures the home does not have any mold problems and you are putting your money in the right place.


Exposure to mold can cause a number of health issues. Starting from respiratory illnesses (asthma, allergies), irritation in the eyes, skin, and airways, etc. Mold can affect people in different ways, and it often causes no symptoms at all. Even nonallergic individuals can also get sick by living in damp indoor spaces.

Proof For Your Insurance Company

Mold remediation is usually a separate part of your insurance policy and home insurance companies are known for not covering mold on insurance policies, so you may want to have the inspection to prove to them there is indeed mold in the home.
