Black mold testing kit for visible mold growth is a DIY mold testing kit that you can use to test for mold in your home or office. Unlike other mold testing kits, the Mould Facts (MF) black mold testing kit is the same as the one used by mold testing professionals.
A few of these molds such as Stachybotrys, Aspergillus and Penicillium are associated with adverse health effects. Others like Alternaria and Cladosporium cause allergic reactions to people who are sensitive to mold.
BUT, not all black molds that occur indoors are hazardous. Also, some dangerous molds are not black.
If you see mold growth, use the MF black mold testing kit and submit samples to a qualified lab to determine whether the mold present is hazardous or only a cosmetic concern. The MF Black mold testing kit is the most inexpensive test and from it our partner lab can give you information and guidance on what to do next. It is an easy way to determine if the mold is toxic and if it will require more intensive investigation and remediation. Cleaning hazardous mold requires special protection.
