Sampling Methods

  • Air Sampling - Is included in all mold inspections that Rival Inspection Services performs. Minimum of 2 samples must be taken, one outside of the building, which is an outdoor control sample to determine the mold types and concentrations in the air, and another in the suspect area of the home. The additional outdoor control sample is also used to determine if there is an​ indoor mold growth source. 

  • Tape Testing for Mold - Mold growth may occur on the surface of materials. A tape lift is often used for surface sampling by stripping the suspect area surface with specially designed clear tape. The sample is then transferred to a microscope slide and then placed in a sealed tight container and transported to a laboratory for complete analysis.

  • Swab Testing for Mold - This type of testing is normally done were visible mold is found to determine the type of fungi. The results of this testing will determine if the mold present in this area is toxic or non-toxic. If visible mold is found in more than one location on the property, a swab test must be done at each location. Laboratory results will determine the type of microbial growth that is present.

  • Carpet Sampling - Can give a great length of history of what type of mold if any was or is present in the home. A special vacuum pump is utilized for this procedure.

  • In-Wall Sampling - Is a test that cannot be done in a home that is not owned by the client without written permission from the owner. This mold test will identify any possible mold growth or breeding in the walls.

  • Bulk Sampling - Items suspected of containing Asbestos or Lead can be sent in for analysis.​
