THE IAQ PRO 5 MINUTE HOME MOLD TEST
THIS IS ONE OF THE NEWEST AND BEST OF THE HOME MOLD TESTING KITS BECAUSE IT CAN TELL YOU INSTANTLY IF YOU ARE DEALING WITH THE VERY HARMFUL STACHYBOTRYS MOLD SO YOU CAN GET OUT OF THAT ENVIRONMENT BEFORE YOU GET TOO SICK!!!!!
IT IS A SWAB TEST SO IF YOU HAVE VISIBLE MOLD JUST SWAB IT AND TEST IT AND YOU WILL KNOW INSTANTLY IF YOU HAVE STACHYBOTRYS AND IF YOU SHOULD GET OUT OF THAT ENVIRONMENT.
EVERYONE WHO HAS DEALT WITH TOXIC MOLD AND IS CURRENTLY DEALING WITH TOXIC MOLD IN THEIR ENVIRONMENT NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS TEST!!
Unlike traditional home mold kits on the market, the IAQ Pro 5-Minute Home Mold Test kit gives you the ability to sample and specifically screen for unhealthy molds due to water damage (both seen and unseen)...in just a few minutes. All without the initial delay and expense of a hiring a professional mold inspector. No more waiting days for something on a culture plate to grow and no need for "optional" $30 lab fees to find out whether what's growing is unhealthy or not. After the expense of multiple culture plates and hidden lab fees, those so-called "low budget, do-it-yourself" send-in mold tests are neither low-budget or do-it-yourself!
So, what's different about IAQ Pro?
IAQ Pro represents a significant advance for in-house mold tests. In brief, we have adapted laboratory-grade test methods for the non-technical user along with technology licensed from the United States Government*. By employing highly accurate lateral-flow antibody tests (well known to the medical industry as hand-held assays) the IAQ Pro product line offers cost-effective, professional-quality tools for the public benefit. Molds most associated with toxins and indoor air problems, such as aspergillus, penicillium and stachybotrys, are specifically detected by the IAQ Pro 5-Minute Home Mold Test. If you are concerned about your family's health or a do-it-yourself person with a mold contamination concern, you should seriously consider ordering the IAQ Pro 5-Minute Home Mold Test kit.
*Because there are other toxic molds that are not tested with this kit, there is a chance that a negative result could be false. So if you get a negative reading and still think you may have toxic mold, you will need to use the Instant Mold Test Kit and send it in to the lab to have it analyzed. But most cases of toxic mold that I have seen involve the 3 species tested for in this test. So, I still think it is a very good test because it rules in or rules out the really bad mold which is stachybotrys.
INSTANT MOLD TEST
THE BEST AND MOST ECONOMICAL IN BLACK-MOLD-TESTING.
When you are first confronted with the fact that you are being exposed to toxic mold, you're first impulse is to look around your house. It is so hard to know what is mold and what is not.
Wouldn't it be great to have a test that would test an area INSTANTLY to determine if it is mold?
Well this is that test!
Instant Mold Test
Economical and Easy to Use!
It could be a black, green or whitish area on wood, drywall, carpet, cement, stone or a painted surface.
Return the swab to the pen and push the swab into the fluid in the pens tip and wait 10 minutes.
There is a chemical in the capsule that turns purple in the presence of mold. If it does not turn purple, it's not mold. If it does turn purple you have mold. It is as simple as that. Within a few moments you will know if the area in question is in fact growing mold.
If it stays green it is not mold.
Then, if your sample tests positive for mold, included in the test kit are tape lifts that you can use to take another sample of the mold. This sample can be sent off to IMS labs for further analysis to determine what type of mold it is. The cost of the tape lift analysis is 30.00 per sample and is completely optional.
Instant Mold Test includes:
1 sampling tube with swab witha fluid filled tip
5 tape lifts
1 sheet of paper with directions
1 prepaid return envelope to return optional tape lifts to IMS labs.

EXAMINAIR MOLD TESTING KIT The Best Mold Testing Kit Using Spore Trap Technology
450.00 with FREE SHIPPING
EXAMINAIR TEST KIT by My Healthy Home
Examinair is a do-it-yourself home test that is cheaper than what it would cost to have a mold inspector do the exact same testing.
An outdoor sample always needs to be done because houses are never airtight and inevitably some mold spores from the outside get inside your house. If the level of mold spores inside your house is greater than the level outside your house than you know you have a mold problem IN your house. And thats why you need both indoor an outdoor samples. One outdoor sample is sufficient.
The test includes analysis of the samples.
Also, this test analyzes for pollen, skin cells (to test for overall cleanliness of your home) dust and dust mites.
ERMI MOLD TEST
IF YOU WANT A DEFINITIVE MOLD TESTING KIT THAT WILL GIVE YOU THE FINAL ANSWER TO THE BURNING QUESTION, "DO I HAVE A MOLD PROBLEM IN MY HOUSE?"; THIS IS IT!!! IT IS A DUST SAMPLE TEST THAT WILL TELL YOU WHAT TYPES OF MOLDS ARE IN YOUR HOUSE AND WHAT LEVELS.
ERMI MOLD TEST KIT
Air quality testing using spore traps have one major flaw. If you do not happen to take a sample when the mold in your house is releasing its sporesA you may get an inaccurate sample of your house leading you to believe your house is OK!! It has been documented that molds release their spores at certain times of the day.
Housing features that can increase moisture levels and growth of mold include poor ventilation, excess production or condensation of water in the house (e.g., humidifiers, unvented clothes dryers), and water leakage or flooding. Basements are likely to have higher mold concentrations than other indoor areas, especially in the winter.
Because mold can also destroy everything from a single area or system to an entire house, regularly testing for mold is one important way to protect your investment. Mold remediation can be an expensive undertaking – one that can easily bankrupt a family and threaten the financial viability of real estate investments.
PREDICT HOME VOC TEST
$500 with free shipping
An air sample can be collected in 3 to 4 hours and covers an area of approximately 2,000 sq. ft. The sample is then sent to our Nationally accredited Laboratory for analysis. Reports from your analysis will tell you if your total VOC levels are within a safe, acceptable, or elevated range, and what the possible sources of contamination are. If levels are determined to be elevated and there is a desire to identify exactly which VOCs are present in the air, an additional analysis can be performed at the lab, for an additional fee. There is no need to take another air sample.
With PREDICT, you can receive a total assessment of the air you and your loved ones breathe everyday - simply, safely, and economically.
Benefits of the PREDICT™ VOC Screening Test
The PREDICT VOC Screening Test, the REVEAL™ Comprehensive VOC Test gives an excellent assessment of overall indoor air quality. However, the REVEAL test goes even further by providing detailed answers to questions of "What's in my air?" The REVEAL test surveys over 350 Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in the air with a single sample (covering approximately 2,000 sq. ft.).
With its extreme sensitivity in the parts per trillion range, the REVEAL test is particularly useful when investigating odor concerns.
What are VOCs?
VOCs are chemicals that are emitted as gases from solids or liquids and easily evaporated into the air at room temperature. Concentrations of these chemicals can be up to 100 times higher indoors than outdoors. Thousands of products, many that we use or are exposed to every day, emit VOCs into the air while they are being used, and even when they are stored. All VOCs have the potential to be harmful, and there are even a few common VOCs that can be particularly dangerous to our health. Symptoms such as frequent headaches, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, coughing, wheezing, and eye, nose and throat irritation can be indicators that the quality of air in your home is poor - especially if these symptoms subside once you leave the house. Other more serious health problems that can arise with poor indoor air quality are asthma exacerbation, digestive problems, and damage to the liver, kidneys and central nervous system. Some air contaminants are so harmful that they can even cause cancer.
The REVEAL Test & Analysis
An air sample can be collected in 3 to 4 hours, then sent to Prism Analytical Technologies - the air testing laboratory that developed PREDICT and REVEAL - for a comprehensive analysis. In a few days, you can know exactly what is in the air you and your loved ones are breathing. This extremely sensitive and detailed analysis will help identify the sources of contaminants, odors, and air pollutants, and can even identify problems before they become disruptive.
MY HEALTHY HOME NOTE:
Identification of unknown odors is a difficult task. There are roughly 200 top VOC's that may or may not be the cause of your problem. This type of testing should help determine most of the potentially troublesome gases. We recommend you consult your physician or Environmental physician for correlations between chemicals in the sample and your health concerns.
