    Certified Mold Inspection, Testing and Detection  
     Our Process  
     Step 2: Wall Cavity Testing  
If we do not see mold, that does not mean you do not have mold.
Mold is hiding much of the time.
The next step is to form a strategy in regard to where to test for mold.
If we identify areas with water damage or you tell us about areas you know got wet or had leaks, we will collect wall cavity air samples from those locations.
We drill a pencil-sized hole into the wall, insert a plastic tube and suck the air (mold) out of the wall into a cassette we FedEx to a laboratory.
Below are some images of us testing for mold behind cabinets, walls and ceilings.

  It's that simple. No cutting large, messy holes to inspect for mold, mold that is microscopic and which you may not see if you cut holes.  
  Most mold inspection companies don't do wall cavity testing. They don't know how to. If they do it wrong, mold will not be detected even though mold is present.  
  Mr. Stih knows the inventor of the Wall-Check (TM), Charlie Wiles (now retired) in Phoenix and was instructed by Mr. Wiles how to use it correctly. Mr. Stih subsequently has written technical papers, lectured nationally and is a foremost expert on the subject of collecting wall cavity samples.
