Corners and crevices:

Swabs navigate tight spaces, capturing mold samples invisible to the naked eye.

Swabs delve deep into fibers, unearthing mold hidden beneath the surface.

Windowsills and frames:

Moisture-prone areas are thoroughly swabbed to reveal potential mold growth.

Identifying Mold Requires Expert Help

Contact Restoration Group for Swab Testing in Pomona

While you might think you can recognize mold when you see it, relying solely on sight can be misleading. Even in well-lit areas, mold and dirt can look deceptively similar. 

And in dark corners or hidden spaces, distinguishing them becomes nearly impossible. That’s where professional mold testing comes in.

Trained professionals like ours utilize specialized methods, including swab tests, to identify the types of mold present precisely. 

This goes beyond what air samples can capture, revealing even hard-to-detect molds like Stachybotrys and Chaetomium.

Don’t risk your health with guesswork. Contact The Restoration Group today for expert mold testing in Pomona and accurate identification.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the signs of mold in my home?

While visible mold growth like black or greenish patches is a clear sign, there are subtler ones, too. Look out for a musty odor, especially in basements or attics. If you experience unexplained respiratory issues like allergies or coughing, that could also be a clue. Remember, any water damage, even seemingly minor, can create suitable conditions for mold growth.

Why should I get a mold test?

Mold testing isn’t just about confirming its presence; it helps identify the specific type and its potential health risks. This information is crucial for determining the right course of action, whether it’s DIY cleaning or professional remediation. Think of it as an investment in your health and peace of mind.

What types of mold tests do you offer?

We offer different options depending on your needs. Air sampling analyzes airborne mold spores, while surface sampling (swab) focuses on specific areas you suspect might be harboring mold. Bulk sampling, where a small piece of material is removed, might be needed for further analysis of specific areas.

What types of mold can you identify?

Our lab analysis can identify a wide range of mold types, from common ones like Cladosporium and Aspergillus to rarer and potentially more hazardous ones like Stachybotrys. Rest assured, we have the expertise to recognize them all.

What happens after the mold test is complete?

Once the lab analysis is complete, you’ll receive a detailed report outlining the presence and type of mold found, if any. We’ll then schedule a consultation to discuss the results, answer your questions, and recommend the best approach for addressing the situation, whether it’s simple cleaning or professional remediation.
