Rated 3 out of 5 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 out of 5 by Buyer Beware I sent the sample to the company. And no where does it state or at least in or on the box I bought to include a check or money order with your sample. I called left a message (NO REPLY) I called the next week spoke with someone that's when I found out about the check or money order. I filled out the card with all my info and sent that with my sample. I was told it should have been sent back to me. Well it's been about a month now and nothing. If they were to include the of the sample test with the over all product. Then there would be no confusion. About check or money order. October 21, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 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
Rated 1 out of 5 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
