Moody Labs can test for the presence of asbestos that has been historically added to the building materials that may have been used in your home. Some of the more common suspect asbestos-containing materials include but not limited to; acoustical ceiling textures, drywall joint compounds and textures, thermal insulations, floor tiles and mastics, and sheet flooring.
Collected samples should be at least the size of a quarter with all layers of the material present. Samples should be sealed in individual air-tight plastic bags clearly marked for identification and submitted for analysis.
Mold and Bacteria
Moody Labs has a team of experienced microbiologists to help you identify mold and bacteria collected from surfaces and materials in your home. Most samples can be collected by using a transparent tape lift, surface swab, or excising a portion of the bulk material affected.
Collected samples can then be sealed in individual air-tight plastic bags clearly marked for identification and submitted for testing.
