Mold Test Kit: Do-it-yourself sampling of room & HVAC air,  & physical sampling of visible mold growth into easy-to-use mold culture plates for lab identification.

 

Mold Testing: Collection by a Certified Mold Inspector of direct physical samples of visible mold and of indoor air samples in rooms, attic, crawl space, basement, & heating & air conditioning equipment & ducts, so that the mold samplings can be grown by a mold lab in mold culture plates [viable mold testing] to produce full- grown mold colonies for mold lab analysis & identification by the mold laboratory.

  

Toxic Black Mold: A fungus that emits chemical mycotoxin poisons that become airborne & cause serious human health diseases. Toxic mold & black mold are brain-damaging Stachybotrys toxic mold [often misspelled  Stachybotris].
 

Viable mold test: Immediate microscopic analysis of the collected substance to determine: (1) whether it is mold or not; (2) if mold, how many mold spores are present in sample; & (3) where possible, to identify the few mold species that can be visually identified without the highly accurate viable mold lab analysis done after 5-7 days' mold culture plate growth.
