Mold testing involves air and swab sampling to determine active mold growth and the indoor air quality within a home. Long term mold growth could result in cross contamination of mold spores which can linger within the air even after water damage repairs have been completed. It's important to test any areas that have been in contact with prolong water damage as mold grows quite quickly in damp environments. Mold growth usually begins within wall cavities after leaks or moisture intrusion and can go undetected for some time. Visible mold that you may see on the surface of a wall or ceiling may just be the tip of the iceberg.
