Mold Testing & Inspection

Mold Testing in Alexandria

We recommend Mold Testing if:

  • You need to know if there is mold because you can't see it.
  • You need official documentation of mold growth.

What we collect - our mold inspectors collect two samples depending upon the presence of the mold. They will either collect an air sample or a surface sample, from the area where mold growth may be occurring (the area of concern). An air sample will be collected also outdoors as a control sample.

Testing - Once collected, the two samples are sent off for laboratory testing. In just a few days, you will receive a report stating the test results. If you are in a hurry, results can be rushed for an additional fee.

Detailed Mold Testing Process

The mold testing method is very detailed and has many steps to make sure that the presence and level of mold growth in a building are correctly identified. In brief, here's how it works:

Visual Inspection

First step is to carefully look over the property to find any obvious signs of mold growth and places where mold can grow because of water, like where there are leaks or condensation.

Moisture Detection

Experts use moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras to find places where moisture is getting in or building up that might not be obvious at first glance. This is because mold growth is often linked to wetness.


Here are different ways to get mold samples, and the one you choose relies on the situation:

  1. Air Sampling: collects mold spores in the air on a collection device or in a culture dish. By taking air samples, you can find out how many mold spores are in the air inside compared to the air outside.
  2. Samples from surfaces can be taken using swabs, tape lifts, or bulk samples, which are made by cutting out a piece of material. This helps figure out what kind of mold is growing on surfaces.
  3. Bulk sampling means taking things out of the affected places to check for mold.

Laboratory Analysis

Samples that have been collected are sent to a lab that specializes in mold analysis. The lab figures out what kind of mold it is and how many spores there are. This helps people understand how mold affects the living environment and plan how to get rid of it.


Based on the lab test, visual inspection, and moisture assessment, the professional will give a thorough report. This report lists the types of mold that were found, how common they were, where they were found, and what should be done to get rid of the mold and stop it from growing again.

Plan for Remediation

If mold is found, a plan is made to safely get rid of it and fix the source of the water that is letting it grow. This could mean cleaning, getting rid of dirty things, and fixing things that need fixing.

Mold Testing And Inspection Service

Mold Inspection Done the Right Way

Feet Up Carpet Cleaning of Alexandria conducts a detailed procedure to ensure that the house is inspected thoroughly and customer needs are satisfied.

What we inspect - during the inspection process, our inspectors will carefully inspect interior walls, looking for signs of mold or even prior water damage, which could hint at mold growing out of sight. We may use a Thermal Imaging Camera or a Moisture Meter to find specific areas that are wet and might have hidden mold. In the second phase, areas below the sink, inside the closet, around doors and windows, and utility rooms among others are checked for mold presence.

For any mold issues the mold inspector discovers, he or she will plan the resources required for a complete remediation and provide you with a detailed written estimate. If there isn't a major issue, we will issue a generic report and tips on how to keep the mold in control.

Our mold inspection service is priced at $149 and is conducted by a mold specialist.
