Important to Know:
It is important to understand that testing your air for elevated mold is a great first step in the process. Spore Trap air sampling is one tool in determining if your property has a mold condition. Determining if the property requires professional attention may require additional investigative measures and possibly consultation with a qualified Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP). Onsite assessments, additional testing, protocol development and professional remediation & 3rd Party Post Remediation Verification (PRV) testing may also be necessary to solve your properties mold issue.
This product is not to be used in replacement of Third-Party Post Remediation Verification Testing or “Clearance” documentation. My Allergy Detective™ highly recommends contracting with a qualified IEP and or certified Mold Remediation Professional to assist you with the proper steps to take as a property owner in dealing with your mold issue.
Tenant Usage of our Product:
My Allergy Detective™ is available for renters and property owners. If you are a tenant and want to determine if you have an elevated mold condition inside your rental property My Allergy Detective’s™ lab results can be very helpful. Understand that MAD’s lab analysis and lab interpretation does not take the place of comprehensive on-site mold investigation. Mold investigations are conducted by independent IEP professionals who will visit the property and provide a full visual onsite assessment, moisture readings, humidity readings, assessment of the mechanical system, identifying of moisture intrusions which could determine the cause of your mold issue. My Allergy Detective™ is a great first step, the testing methodology is professional grade and reputable, but not intended to take the place of an IEP to determine if your living space is safe for occupancy. Please consult with a qualified IEP if you want to know if your property is unsafe for occupancy. Visit: www.acac.org
You’ll find that many IEP’s are hesitant in working with renters. Mold investigations typically require a property owner’s approval in order to conduct and ultimately release the findings of their investigation.
