Q:My office is on the 5th fl in a 5 story building. I have had water damage from rain and suspect there is mold in the wall with the windows. Is the MyMoldDetective 1-Room Mold Test Kit the correct one to use to test for mold? Thank you.

Answer This Question

A:  Yes, if your concern is that there is mold in the air. This will check for airborne mold, i.e. what you could potentially breath in.

    A:  No! This type testing is for airborne mold sampling only. The proper testing is to swab test visible mold, preferably from inside the wall. This may require core drilling a small hole to gather a sample. However, the air sample will help determine the airborne mold spores within your office, just not the root cause or what could be going on inside the wall void.

      Answer This Question

      A:  This type of testing is designed to measure and identify airborne contaminates such as mold. Certain molds and at certain levels (spores per cubic meter) can contribute to asthma and allergies.

        Q:Do you have to do a surface sample or can you just send in air samples? Are swab samples usable inside a shower drain just under cap? Seems like more odor comes from near shower but entire bathroom has the odor. Drain runs fine and I have already poured baking soda and vinegar down all bathroom drains.

        Answer This Question

        A:  1) You can send in any of the samples by themselves and at different times. 2) Taking a surface (swab or lift) tape sample from inside the shower drain will not produce the results you may be looking for. Mold found inside the drain is not airborne and typically does not pose a threat to human health unless you physically introduce it into your body somehow.

          Q:is lab sample optional

          Answer This Question

          A:  There is no way to verify the mold spore counts or viable mold without having these samples tested at a lab. This type of testing is not the same as a "Petri Dish" where mold spores land on the dish and grow. The spore trap cassettes collect mold spores via the suction pump (15 liters of air for 5 minutes) and then need to be counted under a microscope using a complicated mathematical equation to determine the "spores per cubic meter of air". However, this is considered the most reliable testing method for airborne mold spores.

            A:  Lab sample is advisable for getting all of the information.

            by|Dec 28, 2022

              A:  No. Once you operate the unit by drawing air through the filter the filter must then be sent to the lab to determine your mold levels. Laboratory analysis is the only way to get accurate readings of mold.

                Beware - An Additional $35 Per Sample Added On Top of This Price
                Make sure you understand that you have to pay an additional $35 for lab analysis on top of the cost of this kit. I ordered the 5 room test kit thinking all cost were covered in the Home Depot price. This was not the case, for the 5 rooms I was doing the cost was going to be an additional $210 (you have to pay $35 for the outdoor sample as well). I ended up doing only 2 rooms due to the additional cost. I am just sending the samples off today, so I cannot attest to the results at this time.

                  1st air pump failed, results were very broad
                  My first kit came from a large online company, and the air pump failed after taking 1 sample. I waited to long to use the kit so I could not return it. I bought my second kit from Home Depot and it worked as expected. I collected 4 samples and paid for expedited processing with 2nd day FedEx. Email results were returned in about 3 days. The results were very broad (a Division), not a precise identification. Nonetheless, it was a good starting point, albeit an expensive one.

                  Useless garbage….tried 4 different locations and could not use this product. Can’t take an outdoor sample without an outdoor electrical outlet!!! What’s the point of such a product in the year 2022?!?!?

                    I am not sure about the results of the mold test. It was easy to set up and use. After paying $65 for the kit and getting everything ready to register to mail in, I realized the company for the mold test wants you to pay $35 for each specimen that you send in, minimum of 2 samples required. We had 3 samples and I was not about to pay another $135 to figure out what kind of mold we may or may not have! Instead, we purchased a Mold Armor Do It Yourself Mold Test Kit for $8 and paid a one time $30 fee for lab results. Found out we have 3 different types of mold in our bedroom. Read the fine details before buying this product if you are in need of testing for mold!!!
