Air Quality Testing

When you need to identify specific problems with the air inside your home, Step By Step Inspections recommends an air quality test. The only way to discover if there are invisible mold spores located in your home is to conduct this specific type of mold test. An air quality test is also an ideal option to verify the effectiveness of any past mold remediations.

Our indoor air quality mold test includes one (1) indoor air sample of the affected area and one (1) control/baseline sample on the exterior of the structure. If the area of concern is larger or if multiple levels in the home need to be tested, additional samples may be required.

*Additional samples are $45 each

What Air Quality Tests Reveal

  • If there are harmful spores present in the air

  • If indoor mold counts pose a risk to the indoor air quality
