Instant, Accurate Mold Testing For Alexandria Homeowners

Get The Answers You Need From The Best In The Business

Mold technician using the InstaScope system to test for mold spores in a Virginia home

While Alexandria may have an active local culture, homeowners will still spend most of their time at home.

That makes keeping the air in the home as healthy as possible a high priority for all Alexandria families. And few things can reduce the quality of your air as quickly as household mold.

If you even think there might be a mold colony in your home, you need to get it tested. Most mold testers use small cassettes to capture air samples that won’t come back with results for weeks.

But with Valor Mold Removal, you get highly-accurate results instantly and will know just where you stand long before we leave your home.

Looking For Mold Testing That Is Fast And Accurate?

Many mold remediation companies in Alexandria also offer mold testing, but the normal process isn’t just slow – it’s inaccurate.

When an air cassette is sent out for testing, the results can be different depending on several factors, such as:

  • The skills of the mold tech that collected the sample
  • Which lab it was sent to
  • The opinions of the technician reading the sample on what is or isn’t a mold spore
  • Whether your cassette is one of the first or last in the pile

You see, air cassettes aren’t put into a massive machine that can count mold spores for us, as you have probably imagined. Instead, each cassette is looked at under a microscope and a lab tech, using a specific set of rules, visually counts what they feel are mold spores.

That leaves the results open to all kinds of inconsistencies because not all techs agree on what mold spores look like (they can easily be mistaken for pollen), and eye strain is inevitable when you’re looking through a microscope all day every day.

That’s why we invested in a machine that can give accurate, easy-to-understand results right in your home.

Introducing The InstaScope Mold Tester

WIth the InstaScope, all uncertainty is removed. Not only can this system tell you the mold count in each room of your home, but it can also tell you what type of mold has invaded your space.

We can usually test a room and get results in as little as ten minutes. And the results are always over 99% accurate.

The results come to you as a simple red/green/yellow graphic so you can easily understand which rooms need help and which are at normal levels.

Our InstaScope is one of only 70 units in the world and is based on the technology the United Kingdom used to check airports and train stations to warn officials if someone released toxins like anthrax into the air.

The InstaScope is essentially a highly sensitive mobile laboratory designed to hunt down mold in your home.

And the speed of the testing process allows us to test an entire home for less than other companies charge for testing a single floor.
