The Importance of Third-Party Mold Testing
When you hire a mold contractor make sure to ask if they use third-party mold testing!
When you’re looking for a mold contractor to take control of your mold situation, whether it’s a home, a business, a medical center, or any other facility, you want someone you can trust. A business relationship built on trust is one you can be proud of. That’s why Advanced Mold Diagnostics makes fostering trust a top priority with each of our clients.
One of the most important ways we do this is by using third-party mold testing. We believe that third-party testing is a huge advantage that we have over the competition, and it’s an important demonstration of our commitment to trust and to helping our clients. We want our clients to feel informed about their mold situation, and also capable of making the important decisions regarding mold. Third-party mold testing helps us do that. Here’s how.
Why Third-Party Mold Testing Is So Important For Mold Contractors
Advanced Mold Diagnostics thinks that third-party mold testing is important for two main reasons.
The first is accountability. When you hire professional mold inspection that does testing, they will arrive with specialized equipment that can detect mold through walls, ceilings, and other obstructions. That means they can find mold that you might not have even known was there and take samples. Depending on how accessible the mold is, they might take samples from mold in an HVAC system or under outdoor cladding and stucco. And that is the extent of the onsite testing. The real work happens when they take those samples to the lab.
In the laboratory, mold testing will be run on those samples to determine what kind of mold you’re dealing with (there are thousands of species of mold, and not all of them can be dealt with in the same way). Depending on the severity of the problem, your mold contractor will deal with the problem in different ways. This is why third-party mold testing is so important. If your mold contractor runs the tests themselves, that’s a conflict of interest. A contractor might want to perform the more difficult (and therefore expensive) treatment, and if they do the testing themselves, they might find results that make that necessary. Third-party testing ensures that a neutral party decides the extent of the mold problem.
This leads us to our second reason: empowerment. If your mold testing company uses third-party testing but you never see the results, that company is still controlling your mold remediation choices. That’s why Advanced Mold Diagnostics has our third-party tester send the results straight to you, the client. When you receive the results from the lab, you are able to see the type of mold you’re dealing with and the choice to move forward is yours.
Advanced Mold Diagnostics takes its relationships with its clients very seriously, and third-party mold testing is a great example of our commitment to that principle. If you have any questions about the mold testing we offer call 1-800-642-8305. We look forward to hearing from you!
