Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Product is OK I read previous reviews and I think folks need to understand.This mold test is fine IF you have a control to compare it to. If the outside is heavily molded then most likely your interior is also. So you really need two tests - one that is the basic environment your home is located AND one for the interior of your home - otherwise you have no basis to figure where the issue is located. Reputable mold test companies do this - or you can use two of these one for a sample outside and one for a sample inside and send them off for analysis otherwise I think you are missing the point. I don't work for a mold company January 18, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mold Test Kit Discovered mold and needed to know if it is dangerous, hazardous or not. Purchased test kit, followed simple directions and sent off sample as directed. No problem That was five weeks ago. Not knowing if mold is dangerous or not, have sealed off bedroom where mold covers about two square feet of wallboard. Also turned off a/c (even in 90 degree weather) as don't want to spread dangerous mold around house in a/c system. If not dangerous can sand walls, paint myself or insurance may cover cost to remove dangerous or hazardous mold. Hopefully it will not be too much longer before results of tests will be known. Anyone purchasing this product should be aware it takes month or more to get results so suggest to look for product that may get faster results if one is available unless time is not of the essence.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by it's been 2 month and i'm still waiting for result of my mold test They cashed my check 3 weeks after I sent the mold sample in and I've never heard from them since. Save your 40$ and get a different brand!!! December 28, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! I just want to say that I am not usually a review writer but I've had such a nightmare with this company that I must let others know to NOT buy this product. Not only is their customer service HORRIBLE but I have been waiting over a month for results! There is an additional fee of $40 to have your mold tested which I didn't mind at all, but I have called SEVERAL times and left messages and have had no results yet. Save your $ and get a different brand! October 25, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not as valuable as advertised The test kit seemed to be of good quality and seemed to work well. But, since mold was detected, I took the option to send the kit (I actually used two of them) to the lab for analysis at $40 per kit. The reports were received in about 3 weeks, as estimated. The problem is that the reports only identify the scientific names of the various molds which appeared in the petri dish. The report did contain further information for follow up by making reference to several web sites. But the report, itself, gave no indication as to how dangerous the detected molds were. I was not expecting to see anything about the amount of mold but I was expecting some identification. Are these particular molds common? Are they harmful or not so much? Two of what looked like the best links worth following turned out to be bad links so it was difficult to get any information whatsoever about anything beyond the scientific names. One link I did follow was to the Centers for Disease Control which basically recommended against the use of kits like these because you don't really know what you've got. If you have a moldy smell, the CDC recommends going to a party who can test the air and provide more information. Bottom line: The kits seem fine but finding out whether or not there is something present, without knowing what it is, may not be worth the price. The cost of submitting it to the lab was not worth it. November 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by waste of money Product had poor materials and the lab analysis took several weeks and offered no customer support. Results were generic and I would not put any stock in trusting the results. dont waster your money August 13, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by buyer beware I bought this did the test and sent it off. Nowhere does it state to send a check or money they don't accept credit cards. I wasted about three weeks on theses people I filled out the info on the card put it inside with my mold sample. they could have at lest contacted and told me what going on. They did no such thing. They said it should have been sent back that did not happen. I'll never use this product or anything affiliated with them again. October 14, 2014
