Mendocino County Mold and Air Testing
Mold growth can be a serious issue for homes and businesses. Two common types of toxic mold associated with water damage are Stachybotrys, also known as black mold, and Penicillium/Aspergillus. However, mold doesn't have to be toxic to turn into a problem. High concentrations of nearly any type of mold in your building may cause health issues and structural damage.
To accurately identify and treat mold, you need professional help. All Star Mold Testing & Water Damage has the experience you're looking for and the tools you need to effectively remove mold from your home or business.

Mendocino County Air Quality Testing
Even if you don't see any mold around your home, there are other signs to look for. You might notice a musty smell or experience health issues such as itchy eyes, nasal congestion and respiratory problems. By testing the air samples we take, we can identify the species of mold and the quantities.
We can also test physical surfaces in your building. We swab or take tape samples of areas such as countertops, floors and cabinets — then we take the swabs to a lab. Testing the surface swabs under a microscope will help us assess the amount of mold on different surfaces.
High levels of mold and dangerous types of mold require remediation. When we perform mold remediation, we remove hazardous spores and get your mold levels as low as possible. Although it's impossible to eradicate all forms of mold, we will return shortly after remediation to ensure mold levels are within a safe range.
Water Damage Services
Water damage is one of the leading causes of mold growth — mold can begin to develop in water damaged areas within just 24-48 hours.
You may not notice that you have water damage until it has become a significant problem, as water leaks can occur between walls, under flooring and in other unexposed places. That's why we use specific meters that can detect and measure water in your home or business. Once we determine if there is active water damage or wet materials, we can then refer one of our trusted partners to help dry down your building.
When water damage involves wastewater, such as from an overflowing toilet, we have tests to measure bacteria levels so we can clean any contaminated water.
