Toxic Mold Spore Testing/Inspection (North Georgia Only): $112.00


Includes Tests for ALL of the Following Molds and Fungi


Agrocybe/Coprinus; Alternaria-mtx; Arthrinium sp; Ascospores; Aspergillus (ZT)/Penicillium (ZT) CUS-MTX; Penicillium pinophilum; Basidiospores; Bipolaris; Chaetomium  (ZT) MTX TXS WDI; Cladosporium (CIO mtx) cladosporioides; Coelomycete; Curvularia; Epicoccum CUS; Fusarium (ZT) CUS MTX WDI; Ganoderma; Myxomycete; Pithomyces; Rust; Scopulariopsis; Stachybotrys (ZT) TXS WDI; Torula; Ulocladium WDI; Unidentifiable Spores; Zygomycetes (ex Mucor, Rhizopus-Human disease); Articulophora; Botrytis; Cercospora; Dendryphiella; Exosporium; Nigrospora; Oidium; Pestalotia; Pyricularia; Spegazzinia; Sporotrichum sp; Stemphylium; Total Fungi; Fibrous Particulate; Hyphal Fragment; Insect Fragment; Pollen; Trichoderma (ZT); Stachybotrys (Memnoniella  (ZT) WDI

ZT = Zero Tolerance; CUS-MTX = Produce Mycotoxins; TXS = Produce Toxic Spores; WDI = Water Damage Indicators

Molds with ZT next to them are called "Zero Tolerance" molds and will cause closing of public buildings and schools if found in significant numbers in those places - do you want these in your home?

Molds with MTX next to them produce mycotoxins - many of these toxins can cause irreversible brain damage or other nervous system disorders

Some of these molds cause disease directly by infecting the sinuses or lung tissue and others cause serious allergic reactions.

Two tests are usually done: one inside and one outside for comparison - to determine whether the molds are enriched (actually growing) indoors or just present in the air coming into the house from the outside environment







Note: "Nearly one in fifteen homes in our area are estimated to have high radon levels"- source USEPA study.

About Radon - Note: in our area in Georgia predicted average indoor radon levels will be between 2 and 4 pCi/L. Have you had your home tested?  We live where we test so we know how important testing here is. For non smokers radon is the primary cause of lung cancer, for smokers it is the second most common cause of lung cancer.

Your risk of lung cancer increases substantially with exposure to higher radon levels. Lung cancer risk rises 16% per 2.7 pCi/L increase in radon exposure. (World Health Organization, 2009) Studies show that radon is the primary cause of lung cancer among people who have never smoked. However, the absolute numbers of radon-induced lung cancers are much larger in people who smoke, or who have smoked in the past, due to a strong combined effect of smoking and radon.

The WHO Handbook on Indoor Radon: A Public Health Perspective indicates that radon exposure is a major and growing public health threat in homes and recommends that countries adopt reference levels of the gas of 100 Bq/m3 which is equivalent to 2.7 pCi/L. The WHO handbook on indoor radon is a key product of the WHO International Radon Project, which as launched in 2005. The handbook  focuses on residential radon exposure from a public health point of view and provides detailed recommendations on reducing health risks from radon and sound policy options for preventing and mitigating radon exposure.

Reducing Radon levels in the home can be as simple as opening windows for a while once a day or providing proper ventilation, in enclosed spaces such as the basement. So the fix may be relatively inexpensive and a test may provide information that will help reduce your risk of lung cancer with little or no additional expense.

Additional pricing will be available shortly... meanwhile, just email us at or call Dr. E at 706-892-6036 and let us know what testing you would like done and we will respond promptly. thank you for your patience. Dr. E
