Mold examination

Overview

When you notice a strange spot on the wall, floor, ceiling or anywhere else this could be mold. Mold can be potentially very dangerous and harmful for your health. When there is more than 3 square meter total surface area of mold occurs in the house, this is most likely inhabitable! The Gebrekenboek of the Huurcommissie sets this limit even on 0,25m².

By a simple test you’ll know if you’ll have to deal with active mold, salts or another pollution.

With a mold analysis we can determine how far a contaminated place goes. For example the plaster can be affected, but the underlying insulation may not. This can influence a renovation plan strongly.

Method

A contact sample is cultured in the laboratory on a Perti dish according to SBM-2015.

This is checked in 3 and 5 days.

The result is either negative or (potentially harmful) positive.
