In most cases, if visible mold growth is present, sampling is unnecessary. You should simply assume there is a problem whenever you see mold or smell mold odors. However, sometimes mold may not always be readily detectable, it may be hidden and difficult to locate. If you are looking for complete assurance, we recommend environmental sampling. We do not recommend testing for mold yourself. Sampling for mold should be conducted by professionals who have specific experience in designing mold sampling protocols, sampling methods, and interpreting results. A combination of air (outdoor and indoor air samples) and bulk (material) samples may help determine the extent of contamination and where cleaning is needed.
