Test for MOLD in your AIR and protect your family today!

TEST FOR MOLD LIKE A PRO

My Mold Detective is finally here. Until now, solutions to limited mold and allergy testing have been unreliable, non quantifiable and expensive, also requiring an IAQ Professional to schedule to visit your home and perform an assessment and take samples. Understanding the types of mold as well as the concentration levels of mold we breathe into our respiratory system is important.  MMD uses the same reliable, active mold spore capturing technology (spore trap "air" cassettes) used by the pricey IAQ Professionals, but at a fraction of the cost. When time is of the essence, 48 hour turn around on MMD's Easy-to-Read Lab analysis is available.  Finally, home mold testing with the peace of mind you’ve been looking for.
