Water damage and the resulting mold growth can reap havoc on building materials within buildings and deteriorate the indoor air quality within the home of office. Water damage can result from basic roof or window leaks to pipe bursts to more complicated factors such as condensation and ventilation deficiencies. More serious water damage causes include floods, significant storm damage and sewer backups. All of these factors can, and likely will, result in mold and water damage of materials and contents.
The Quick Mold Test is an ideal tool to arm yourself to determine the extent and overall scope of mold and water damage that exists. Once the scope of the water damage is defined and known, only then can mold remediation and water damage restoration begin to correct the problems. The Quick Mold Test allows for ongoing testing of the condition of the mold and water damage that exists and provides the user the ability to properly detect and monitor the level of mold contamination that is present.
The Quick Mold Test detects the microscopic proteins associated with water damage and mold growth to produce the color change from GREEN to GRAY or PURPLE. If the test yields a PURPLE color result, then the water damaged surface sampled is significantly contaminated with mold.
