Black Mold Test Kits

With black mold test kits  you can test your environment which is the next important step you need to do once you have determined that you have some of the symptoms that could be symptoms of black mold poisoning. You need to get the right test that will be most likely to give you an answer. 

There are many black mold test kits available.  I encourage you to read carefully  through all 6 mold tests carefully before you decide which one will work best for you. Sometimes you may have to do more than one type of testing to find mold.

THE NEW IAQ PRO 5 MINUTE HOME MOLD TEST

The best swab test is The IAQ Pro 5 Minute Home Mold Test which can positively identify stachybotrys or aspergillus/penicillium in minutes.

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. It involves swabbing visible mold and also testing dust samples in your house.

AIR QUALITY TESTING USING AIR PUMPS AND SPORE TRAPS
THE NUMBER ONE TEST TO USE WHEN MOLD IS NOT VISIBLE IN YOUR HOME

Air Quality testing using spore traps is another way of testing for mold in your house

For the average person who is just trying to figure out if mold is in their environment, and they do not see any visible mold to swab, the Examinair Mold Test or My Mold Detective are the best tests to use because they use spore trap technology to collect mold spores from the air, so you can find out what exactly you are breathing in, in your environment.

Air quality testing uses special equipment to pump air through a container that traps mold spores. This container is called a spore trap.

I think air quality testing  has an important place in the world of mold testing. It is the test that gave me my answers as to why I was sick. So, it can be very useful and often it is the first test I recommend people to try when  they are having symptoms of toxic mold exposure  but mold is not visible in the house.

This is also the testing that mold inspectors use when they come out to test your house. However, when a mold inspector tests your house it can be thousands of dollars.  You can get the same results for much less expense with the Examinair Mold Test or for even less expense with the new My Mold Detective.

FACE MASKS TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM TOXIC MOLD

3M Mold Remediation Respirator Kit 68097, Medium (Includes a 3M Full Facepiece 6000 and two pairs of 3M Particulate Filters 2097, P100)

There are two types of air quality testing for mold, viable and nonviable testing.

Viable mold testing only tests for live molds and tests for live spores. This type of testing is much more expensive and is used to determine if there is mold that is living in a building.

Nonviable testing counts spores both living and dead. This testing is the best one to start off with because you will want to know if you are breathing in dead spores as well as live ones. Dead or alive, spores contain mycotoxins and are dangerous to breathe in.

Also nonviable testing is much more reasonable as far as cost is concerned. It is also easier because the spore trap container does not have to processed immediately.

For the purposes of this website, only nonviable testing will be presented. There are times when viable spore trapping is desirable and this would require a mold professional to perform this type of testing.
