  • Quickly identifies the most harmful molds
  • Results In 5 minutes!
  • Patented technology
  • Licensed from the U.S. Public Health Service
  • No Waiting for Lab Results

The IAQ Pro 5-Minute Mold Test shouldn’t be confused with those “low-cost” antiquated Petri dish-type test kits.Our test is a breakthrough in DIY mold testing!

Using technology similar to medical-grade pregnancy type test kits, the 5-Minute Mold test is unique to the industry and brings cutting edge science directly to your home. You can save hundreds of dollars over hiring a mold inspector and get immediate results in the privacy of your own home.

Typical culture plate tests:

  • Don’t distinguish bad molds from common background molds
  • Don’t indicate unhealthy levels of mold
  • Take days to grow
  • Require additional fees and weeks of waiting for additional lab analysis

Unlike traditional home mold testing kits on the market, the IAQ Pro 5-Minute Home Mold Testiing 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. 

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 Testing Kit. 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 Testing Kit.

Instructions-for-Use

*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 Testing 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 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?
And wouldn't it be great if that test did not cost you a small fortune?
And wouldn't it be even better if was made by a very reputable company in the environmental industry? 

Well this is that test!

Instant Mold Test includes:

  • 1 sampling tube with swab and a fluid filled tip
  • 5 tape lifts (Optional)
  •  Directions for use
  • 1 prepaid return envelope to return the optional tape lifts to IMS labs for analysis.

Instant Mold Test          17.95

Economical and Easy to Use! 

This instant home mold testing kit is inexpensive and easy to use. With this test you can find out immediately if something in your house that looks like mold is actually mold. This test looks like a pen. Simply remove the swab from the pen and swab the area in question.

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.

MANUFACTURED BY 3M, A VERY REPUTABLE COMPANY!!!

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.

This option gives you the opportunity to talk with an indoor air specialist about your test kit and results, find out information about potential allergens and ask common questions about indoor environments.

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.

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.



NEW
MY MOLD DETECTIVE
A LESS EXPENSIVE AIR TEST FOR MOLD

This is a new test. The cost is a little less than Examinair but the cost of the pump does not include the cost of all the spore trap cassettes you will need. (it only comes with 2) The cool thing is you get to keep the pump for further testing if needed. And it is also great that you can test as many rooms as you want, just keep in mind each spore trap cassette costs 21 dollars plus 35 dollars for lab anlaysis of each spore trap so:

  • AIR PUMP PLUS 2 CASSETTES = 74.00
  • CASSETTES ANALYSIS   35.00 each
  • EXTRA CASSETTES COST   21.00 each
  • TOTAL COST OF AIR PUMP WITH 2 ADDITIONAL CASSETTES (TOTAL OF 4) INCLUDING LAB ANALYSIS OF ALL $ CASSETES IS:
  • 256.00 WHICH IS LESS EXPENSIVE THAN EXAMINAIR.

The cassettes are sent to an accredited lab for analysis which is comparable to Examinair.

So, if you are economically challenged as many of us are, this may be a good way to test your house for mold. Just click on the amazon link below to check it out and order one for yourself.

Graphic: EPA ERMI Index Chart

Level 1 = Buildings with an ERMI in the 1st quartile have the lowest likelihood of having a mold problem.

.Level 2 = Buildings with an ERMI in the 2nd quartile have the lower likelihood of having a mold problem

.Level 3 = Buildings with an ERMI in the 3rd quartile have the greater likelihood of having a mold problem

Level 4 = Buildings with an ERMI in the 4th quartile have the greatest likelihood of having a mold problem

Developed by Scientists at the US EPA

Extensive research conducted by the EPA, using state-of-the-art DNA forensics, established the Environmental Relative Moldiness Index or ERMI. The DNA-based ERMI test analyzes a single sample of dust from a home using a highly specific DNA-based method for quantifying mold species. The ERMI report includes the detection and concentrations 36 mold species along with the ERMI value itself. This provides a single number to rank the "moldiness" making it easy to compare the results to a national scale.

Testing for mold isn’t new, but there is a new, faster, more reliable method for testing. And faster, easier detection means less time between infestation and remediation. The ERMI (Environmental Relative Moldiness Index) test is a DNA-based mold identification tool developed by scientists at the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Used by professionals in homes, businesses, schools and hospitals, the ERMI test leverages the same DNA technology that has revolutionized forensic and criminal investigation.

DNA mold testing leverages a technology called quantitative PCR (qPCR) that is used in many scientific fields including genetics and cancer research. The qPCR technology directly probes the DNA of mold with incredible accuracy to detect which species of mold are present and how many spores of each species are contaminating the indoor environment.


The ERMI test was performed on 1100 homes across the US, as part of the American Healthy Homes Survey, conducted by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Protecting your family and your property are two primary concerns. Recognizing the potential health hazards mold presents to your family – asthma, allergies, infections and certain types of toxicities – means making mold detection a regular part of home maintenance.

With the ERMI mold testing kit, you can compare your home’s mold level with the EPA’s Relative Moldiness Index which is based on the 1,100 home HUD American Healthy Home Survey. The ERMI index helps determine how much mold is in your home, and exactly what type of mold is present.

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

Benefits of the PREDICT™ VOC Screening Test

  • Quickly determine total levels of harmful indoor air pollutants, including hidden mold - the only test of its kind on the market
  • Receive information on potential sources of air contamination
  • One test covers up to a 2,000 sq. ft. area
  • Specific IAQ problems can be identified with optional 350+ VOC compound analysis, without taking another air sample (additional cost incurred)
  • Receive expert consultation for interpreting the test results or suggestions for improving indoor air quality

 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.

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.

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.
