Toxic Mold In Your Home
What do you do when you find some questionable looking mold in your home? Not all mold is bad, but some types of mold (such as stachybotrys chartarum) can be very dangerous.

These tests can run anywhere from $200-$1000+ depending on the number of samples and size of area being tested.
If lab results reveal the existence of toxic mold, the home and all articles in it should be treated by a professional mold remediation company, with the home being re-tested after treatment is complete.
