Pasadena Air Quality Testing
Our air testing methods allow us to identify, quantify, and monitor contaminants within your home or building. We’re able to test for chemical pollutants, dander, allergens, and many other particles. Our air testing methods are also a big part of our mold inspection and remediation process. We test for spores in the air to determine where and how far they have spread.
Direct Surface Sampling in Pasadena
Do you have visible mold growth in your home? Then we highly recommend direct surface sampling to determine what kind of mold is growing. This will help you better treat the species of mold and prevent airborne spores from spreading.
ERMI Mold Assessment
We use EPA research and a DNA mold test to understand exactly which kinds of mold are growing in your home. An ERMI mold test analyzes dust within your home and uses a quantitative polymerase chain reaction to quantify mold species.
HERTSMI-2 Mold Scoring
On our EMRI tests, we use the HERTSMI-2 scoring system to help patients and homeowners understand how dangerous the mold in their home is. This is especially helpful in water-damaged buildings that might no longer be safe for residents.

The Best Mold Inspection Services in Pasadena, CA
Pasadena is well-known for many things - the San Gabriel Mountains, the New Year’s Day Rose Parade, the Rose Bowl Game… but most people aren’t thinking about a very common problem in this area of California: mold.
The city and surrounding area can be quite humid during the summer and early months of autumn. This, coupled with ideal indoor conditions in old, damp houses, leads to mold growth in many homes.
There are many beautiful parts of living in California, but dealing with the side effects of mold isn’t pretty. Many people living with mold will begin to feel sick, experience respiratory problems, and even experience depression. The longer the mold goes untreated, the more serious these symptoms can become.
Signs That You May Have a Mold Issue
One of the biggest indications that mold is growing in your house? Your health. If you or your family members are experiencing excessive sneezing, coughing, congestion, running noses, headaches, or wheezing, you could be dealing with a mold problem.
You will also want to pay attention to your home and its surrounding environment. Have you been experiencing high levels of humidity? Do you notice strange odors, discolorations, or what appears to be mold spores?
When we conduct mold examinations, we survey your whole property. We will then provide a written, detailed report so that you understand exactly where the mold is and what can be done about it. To learn more about what goes into our inspections, click here.
Frequently Asked Questions
Mold testing cost is dependent on many different factors. For instance, types of mold testing that may be required and how many different samples are needed depends on what type of condition the property is in, has there been current or active leaks? Have there been any water losses? The only way to answer these questions is by completing a comprehensive mold inspection on site. This allows the hygienist to pinpoint and locates each individual area of potential contamination. The comprehensive inspection is the key component in determining the source of the contamination and the presence of mold. The site assessment also allows us to develop a mold sampling protocol that will best fit the client's needs. Comprehensive mold inspection cost depends on the square footage of your property. With that vital information, we can provide clear pricing to complete your mold inspection and mold testing.
If a general home inspector identifies areas that may have actual visible mold or areas of suspected mold, they will most likely red flag the suspect area and consult their client to have the area(s) evaluated further by a properly certified mold inspection firm. If this is the case with your home, do not panic! We can come to your property and provide a site assessment of the areas of concern and confirm whether mold contamination is present or not. If the laboratory returns a report that shows that fungi were not detected during analysis, then we can provide a report stating that the suspect areas do not contain any findings of concern via our investigation and data received by the accredited laboratory. If the laboratory confirms that, in fact, mold contamination is present, then we will provide you with a detailed report which includes a scope of work so you as the client know exactly what to expect for a successful mold remediation/removal. We also can provide our clients with a list of properly certified mold remediation companies.
This is a valuable educational opportunity, and an inspector’s refusal to allow this should raise a red flag. Never pass up this opportunity to see your prospective home through the eyes of an expert.
Many of our clients wonder how often they should test the air in their homes. We like to remind them that as environmental factors and conditions indoors change, so does the risk of contaminants within your airflow.
We recommend that homeowners check their air quality at least once during warm summer seasons or during a yearly dramatic weather change. If you make big changes in your house, like painting rooms or buying lots of new furniture, you may also be dealing with new chemicals in the air and request an air quality check
The EPA lists the four most dangerous indoor air pollutants as cigarette smoke, formaldehyde, radioactive radon-222 gas, and very small, fine particles that can enter human bloodstreams and cause a variety of health concerns.
Related experience in construction or engineering is helpful, but is no substitute for training and experience in the unique discipline of home inspection. If the inspection is for a commercial property, then this should be asked about as well.
