At Shamrock Mold Inspections, we pride ourselves on providing top-notch, comprehensive mold inspection services for residential and commercial properties.

In this blog post, we will discuss the various services we provide, the importance of mold testing, and how our thorough evaluations can help you maintain a healthy environment in your property.
Surface Sampling: Lift & Swab Samples
One of the essential services we offer is surface sampling, which can be conducted using lift (or tape) samples and swab samples. Lift sampling involves using an adhesive-backed slide that collects a physical sample of mold by pressing the adhesive to the area being tested. Swab sampling, on the other hand, entails collecting a predetermined surface area with a sterile swab. Both of these methods are crucial in accurately determining the presence and extent of mold growth in your property.
Independent Laboratory Evaluation
At Shamrock Mold Inspections, we understand the importance of unbiased, accurate results. Therefore, we deliver your samples to an independent laboratory for evaluation. The laboratory will assess both the concentrations and types of mold present, which can help determine the cause of the issues and the most effective way to address them. Our collaboration with independent laboratories ensures the highest standards of accuracy and reliability in our mold inspection services.
Identifying the Cause: Water Intrusion
Mold growth is often the result of water intrusion, especially when it occurs over a long period. By identifying the types of mold present, we can form a hypothesis about the cause of the problem and develop a tailored protocol to address it. For instance, some molds are more likely to occur due to constant, long-term water intrusion. In such cases, our experienced team will outline the necessary steps to remedy the problem, ensuring the safety and well-being of the building’s occupants.
