Mini Class Series: Testing Options for Your Home

These days, there are a lot of options available when it comes to testing your home for mold, water damage, and other indoor pollutants. It can be hard to know where to put your time, trust, and money.

We want to help make this process a little less overwhelming. Over the next few weeks, we will break down common testing methods in a quick and an easy-to-understand way!

This mini class series is designed to help you better understand the testing options for your home so that you can feel empowered when talking with professionals and making decisions for your home.

As a bonus, at the end of the mini class series, we will be sending out a Testing Cheat Sheet Guide exclusively for those on our mailing list. 

Note: The inclusion of any testing method on this website is not an endorsement for any specific test. Rather, we are including testing methods that are commonly available to the public. Every testing method has specific strengths and limitations. Ultimately, testing is just one piece of the puzzle. Any testing should be done in combination with a thorough visual investigation of the entire home that also takes into account the history of the home and the health of the people in it.
