As other reviews mentioned, the cost of the machine is incidental compared to the cost of the lab report.. After receiving an official report of elevated levels of mold from a testing facility, we decided to try remediation ourselves. After the work was done, I decided to try a less costly pre-test before spending hundreds more for the official post remediation test. I felt confident that we had removed the problem and the mold detective test confirmed my feelings with a "normal" and acceptable level. Next we ordered the official test to be done. Unfortunately, the results came back adverse; the levels were elevated and unacceptable. I compared their results to the mold detective results and found a few anomalies. My first mistake was believing I could use only the two cartridges and 1 surface tape test to duplicate the test facilities evaluation. They test the air in each room and surface test all suspected areas without regard to price. Had I used the number of test cartridges and tape surface tests they did, the cost of testing would approach that of their test. The final summation is it cost me money in the end since it was not complete for what it should do...test a whole house. I suggest buying the extra cartridges before doing any testing or your results may not be accurate. This should be made clear, up front, when printing the sales literature. On the positive side, the results of the test are presented nearly identical to the professional test done and the accuracy of the samples tested can be trusted as accurate.

My husband always had bad allergies but it got worse after we moved into our new house. A few months after we moved in I noticed a musty odor in my basement. I did some searching around and found mold growing behind the water heater. I contacted a professional and soon realized it was way out of my price range just to test for the mold. After researching DIY mold testing I found this product. The product shipped quickly to my house and was easy to use. I took an indoor sample in the basement and outdoor sample and sent them both to the lab. The website made it easy for me to track my samples and even better I received a profession lab report within a few days. The lab report was easy to read and suggested I contact them for the next steps. I called the customer service and they gave me a few remediation companies in my areas. I was able to give the actual report to the professional and I am now in the process of getting rid of the mold in my house! Well worth the money spent!

My landlord didn't want to spend the money to have someone come out and test for mold. So I decided to do some testing myself. I sent in my air cassettes and got a report emailed to me within a few days. The report told me the different types of mold that are floating around in the air my family and I breathe in. I showed my landlord the report and now he's taking the next step to get this fixed. I'm glad I spent the money to keep my family safe.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by winston Worked as anticipated
Unit worked fine. Sampling fee is a little steep, but I knew that going in from other reviews.

If you have musty odors in your home or suspect a mold issue, I highly recommend using My Mold Detective. It's super easy to do & lab results are easy to understand. It told me that my basement was Elevated but my mainlevel was not affected, which gave us peace of mind.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jb123456 works well but be prepared to pay more for results
be aware, you have to initially invest in the kit then spend around another $100 to have the results analyzed. it was an easy process though.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by gardenat Repot was very confusing
The report we received was very confusing, footnotes don't seem to match the numbers on our report. There is a footnote number 19 but only 10 footnotes. Will have to call the lab to find out if we have mold or not. It's supposed to be $35.00 to test a room but you also have to do a test outdoors which is an additional $35.00. Will probably have to pay a company to do another test. We didn't get any report on the tape strip that was sent in.
