DIY Mold Tape Test


A tape test is the most common surface-sampling technique and provides a quick way to sample for mold. This test is best performed when no mold is visible or if you are not directly testing an active colony of mold such as dust on a window sill or elsewhere like the corners in the home. Dust samples may tell you the history of what mold may be airborne.

A tape-lift system can be used instead of a swab sample to test for the species of mold, the relative degree of contamination, and the potential for airborne spore production.

Mold Inspection Pro test kits come with one free lab¬†analysis. You also have the option to add on as many tests for extra lab analysis as you’d like by adding that on to your order. You can easily collect a lot of samples over a short period of time which can provide you with proof of mold growth.
