Accurate and Instant Mold Testing in Arlington, VA, From Valor Mold

No one wants to find mold in their homes, but one of the most significant issues when it comes to mold is that it’s often not seen until it’s too late. Mold forms in dark, damp places such as within your air vents or inside the walls. By the time you notice mold stains, chances are you have a hefty mold problem. But you can test for mold if you suspect that you have it, even without visible signs. With an accurate test from mold experts like the certified technicians at Valor Mold, you can have confidence in your results…and in how to move forward resolving your mold issues. 

Signs That You Might Have Mold in Arlington, VA — Before You See It

The easiest way to tell that you have mold is to see mold stains on your walls, ceiling, or floors. But by the time you can see the mold, it’s probably gone too far for comfort. Fortunately, there are other ways to tell if you might have mold in your home. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Has there been water damage from a flood in your basement or other parts of your home recently?
  • Does your roof have any leaks?
  • Do parts of your home have a musty smell?
  • Is there a stain on your wall, ceiling, or floor that has grown recently?


If you notice any of these signs, it’s best to schedule a mold test with Valor Mold. 

You Need Mold Test Results As Soon As Possible — And Valor Mold Can Provide

The sooner you know that you have mold, the easier it will be to take care of the problem. With Valor Mold’s mold testing, you won’t have to wait a few days for the results. We have the Instascope, one of 70 machines that provide 99% accurate, instant test results for mold. The test itself takes about 60 minutes and then shows the results in one of three colors:

  • Green – only expected levels of airborne mold concentration
  • Yellow – moderately higher levels of airborne mold concentration
  • Red – significantly higher levels of airborne mold concentration


 It uses UV light and algorithms to ensure 99% accurate mold testing. You can test your entire home — or 15 rooms — for a flat rate of $650, with any rooms above 15 for an additional $15.
