Tap Score’s Total Mold Test will analyze your water quality for mold and fungal contamination. This popular water quality mold test includes species like black mold, (Asp. spp.) and other Aspergillus formations with full speciation of the Penicillium & Cladosporium genus. Results will be reported as a quantitative fungal analysis, measuring your detected species in units of colony forming units per mL (CFU / mL).

Mold is a form of fungus that spreads through the production of spores.These spores are invisible to the naked eye and able to survive in harsh conditions.

Mold can enter your home in a variety of ways. If there's moisture, dampness, and protection from direct sunlight–mold spores can, and will grow into bigger and bigger problems. Rapid growth occurs in areas with lots of moisture–particularly near leaks in pipes, windows, or rooftops–but frankly no area is outside the realm of mold-growth possibility.
