A mold screening test is used to determine if a mold antigen is present in your living environment. A mold diagnostic is a full lab analysis on the type and size of your mold problem.
You may need a dehumidifier. To eliminate mold, you need to get the humidity below 50%, and around 35% is optimal. If you can’t get a dehumidifier, you will need to open windows to the outside to equalize humidity (if it is less humid outside), insulate cold, moisture-beaded water pipes, and remove saturated paper and wood from affected rooms.
If your results reveal that your inside mold count is significantly higher than the mold outside, you will need to eliminate the moisture and humidity, which give mold a foothold. This may mean anything from a good clean-up to serious remodeling and remediation, but that is one reason to rely on proven professionals.
