Mold Testing Companies

Mold testing companies assess indoor environments for mold presence, concentration, and type. ATS employs highly qualified and educated indoor environmental professionals (IEPs) with experience in indoor air quality solutions for commercial and industrial buildings.

You may want to hire an inspector if:

Mold can develop anywhere, especially in places of low ventilation and high humidity. Here are some common places for mold to grow:
If left uncleaned, the mold can spread and damage your building with wood rot, discoloration, and unpleasant odors. Mold can also make people sick; common symptoms of mold illness include headache, fever, and symptoms that resemble asthma or allergies. Long-term mold exposure can lead to extreme fatigue, trouble breathing, lung infections, and internal bleeding.
When Should You Take Samples?

Mold testing allows you to compare the level and concentration of mold indoors with that of mold outdoors by taking samples for laboratory assessment. While the EPA says that testing visible mold is typically unnecessary, the agency recommends that people take samples in three scenarios:

Our Sampling & Testing Capabilities
Mold testing typically involves a few different types of samples:
ATS can take air samples to test for airborne mold spores and bulk samples of materials to test for mold.
The EPA recommends that anyone working with mold should wear PPE such as gloves, an N—95 respirator, and eye protection when interacting with mold because certain molds release toxic mycotoxins when inhaled, ingested, or touched.
ATS professionals can safely locate and remove mold from hidden or difficult-to-access areas consistent with professional recommendations. Our professionals also have access to the proper equipment for inspecting, testing, and disposing of the mold and mold-infected materials. If needed, an inspector can take the samples to one of our A2LA accredited labs for further testing.
