We conduct swab mold testing for visible mold and air sample testing for non-visible mold.
In most cases if you have mold in your Des Moines, Iowa home, it is just a matter of doing a mold inspection and devising a plan for removal and remediation. Other times, you might suspect you have mold because of an odd odor or respiratory responses but don’t know for sure. That is when mold testing becomes important. Here at AdvantaClean of Des Moines Central, we offer a full line of mold services, including inspections, mold removal, mold testing, and crawlspace encapsulation to combat high humidity in your home that can cause mold to grow.
We believe it is important to not just remove mold, but also make the changes needed to reduce the chance for it to return. After all, you don’t want to pay for mold testing and remediation several times a year to keep you and your family safe from the potential health-damaging effects of mold. We will let you know what we find as the contributing cause for the mold in your home, so you can take the necessary steps, such as dealing with moisture in the crawlspace or fixing a plumbing or appliance water leak.
Even if you do see where the mold is, we can perform mold testing if someone is having respiratory or other health issues and you need to know the severity of the mold problem, so you can provide that information to your medical team. We utilize two methods of mold testing: a swab test on visible mold and an air sample testing technique for mold that is not visible. Call today with any questions you may have about our mold testing services or any of our other cleanup and indoor air quality services.

What do your mold testing services involve?
When you call our team for help in determining whether your home has mold, we will first perform a thorough inspection to check for visual evidence of spores. We’ll take note of any signs of mold we find and give you a detailed report when our inspection is complete. For an additional charge, we can take mold samples and have them sent to a lab for more extensive mold testing to identify the specific species of mold and learn what level of risk it presents to your health.
How do I know if I need mold testing?
Because mold thrives in dark, damp conditions, it often grows in areas that are out of direct sight, which can make it hard to detect visually until the problem is severe. We recommend paying attention to other possible signs of a mold problem—if your home develops an unpleasant, musty odor or you start to experience more frequent respiratory symptoms or allergy flare-ups, then you should have your place tested for mold.
