Black Mold Identification through Sample Analysis - Mold Laboratory Reporting

Black Mold, or Toxic Mold, are terms commonly used by the general public to describe molds that can visually appear very dark such as stachybotrys, cladosporium, or alternaria. However, it is important to note that all molds can only be identified through laboratory sample analysis. Digital Diagnostic Laboratories provides Digital DIS-10 System users with same day mold lab reports.

Mold Exposure: Why Test for Mold?

Individual responses to mold exposure varies greatly from one person to the next, not unlike allergies, asthma, or other health issues. Mold is everywhere, and is a part of everyday life, for everyone. It always has been, and always will be. However, for susceptible individuals experiencing health issues, as a result of mold exposure: mold testing can be used to identify and quantify fungi and extent of exposure so that necessary action can be implemented. Mold testing can assist in the transfer of real property to protect all parties involved, both buyer and seller and can also assist physicians when trying to isolate a harmful organism. Mold testing can verify the presence of certain molds not commonly found in indoor environments, thus assisting in health care diagnosis, or contractual disputes, related to fungal contamination and environmental contributors.

Mold Clean Up

Clean up of mold, fungal contamination, should always be done regardless of mold type, and must always include the elimination of moisture. Testing before mold remediation, and after mold clean up, provides permanent documentation for any future need, or issue. Consumers should contact an abatement specialist for mold remediation services. General information about black mold, toxic mold, mold clean up and/or mold exposure can also be found on our “News” or “Mold FAQ” pages.

Remove Mold: Mold Remediation Consulting

The Digital DIS-10 System user is trained to provide quality mold inspection services that also includes access to mold remediation consulting services through the staff and principal advisors at Digital Diagnostic Laboratories. Pre remediation and post remediation mold testing allows the general consumer to safeguard against personal health liability, and to obtain legally defensible documentation in the event that serious health concerns continue or arise, or if litigation is imminent. Mold testing by the non-remediation DIS-10 System user, at pre and post mold remediation, provides analytical lab results for samples taken at times and locations, under similar conditions, that are used in comparative data study. Mold testing and laboratory reporting is used to maintain permanent documentation of existing conditions at the time of sampling/testing. The Digital DIS-10 Mold Inspector provides complete testing reports including mold photomicrographs as easily retrievable, and permanent records.

Mold Air Sampling and Mold Information
A wide variety of microorganisms, fungi/mold, can be found across many regions in the United States. The influence of normal humidity, temperature conditions, and concentrations of bioaerosols, and other pertinent factors, can vary from area to area. There are no current exposure limits established for mold. It is accepted industry practice to compare outside bioaerosols concentrations and genus/species to inside bioaerosols concentrations genus/species. This procedure is supported by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists, the American Industrial Hygiene Association and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Guidelines. Simply put, the indoor air flora should be quantitatively lower than, but qualitatively similar (genus/species) to that of the outside air, and be a reflective indicator of the present mold ecosystem.

Indoor Environmental Mold Labs: Total Quality Management Systems
Quality Assurance programs are designed to ensure reliability in the identification and measurement of analytical results. Programs are maintained by rigorous attention to detail and a commitment to a thorough, on-going QC auditing, evaluation, and improvement program. The QA/QC program is designed to meet prescribed standards of performance in the identification and measurement of analytical results. The QA/QC program is based on sample documentation, analytical documentation, audits, data review, Q/C samples, and laboratory control samples. All data are subject to a tiered system of review and final approval by the QA/QC department. Before results are released, and a final report is produced, the data package must be approved to assure the client of overall analytical integrity.

Understanding Mold in Your Indoor Environments

Mold Frequently Asked Questions
This is general mold information only and is not intended to be legal or medical advice for those seeking such professional services. Contact an attorney for legal assistance and a health care provider, physician, or allergist, for health concerns.

There are numerous books and web-sites that provide excellent, expert, information on a variety of fungi. Many references were used in the information and mold glossary below. This is limited, general, mold information only, with references and acknowledgements listed at the end of the page.

People are exposed to mold of some type on a daily basis. Molds can be everywhere. They are microscopic organisms that exist in both indoor environments and outside. Molds are the decomposers of organic substances that are vital to plant and animal life. Molds survive and flourish easily in moist environments under the right conditions. People everywhere, everyday, co-exist with mold.

Mold Exposure
People are exposed to mold through the air they breathe, contact with skin, and ingestion. Molds need moisture, a food source, time, and to be left undisturbed. Any source of moisture within an indoor environment can be a possible contributor to a mold problem and poor indoor air quality. It has been stated simply that the best mold control, is moisture control. Many molds given the right conditions have the potential to cause ill health effects in susceptible individuals.

  2. Are some molds more hazardous than others?
  3. How am I exposed to molds?
  4. How does mold affect my health?
  5. What health symptoms are common with mold exposure?

General Mold Glossary - Pictures of Mold - Photomicrographs
The mold glossary (located at the end of the “Mold FAQ” section) has pictures of mold, types of mold, mold exposure, and effects of mold, in a general informational format. References and acknowledgments are provided so the viewer can also locate additional and more detailed information about mold from various sources.

MOLD - What is it?

Molds are organisms in the taxonomic kingdom of fungi that reproduce by making spores. They can be found continuously in outside and indoor air. Mold spores are a microscopic form of fungi. Fungi include molds as well as rusts, mildews, mushrooms and yeasts. Similar, but different, from plants fungi do not have vascular tissue that form true roots, stems or leaves. They have rigid cell walls but lack chlorophyll and can not photosynthesize. Funguses/Molds are heterotrophic and exist as parasitic or saprophytic organisms.

Parasites feed off of another organism at the host’s expense and saprobes feed on dead, decaying sources of organic substances. All fungi rely on living or dead organic material to obtain energy and grow. In the publication Sampling and Identifying Allergenic Pollens and Molds the author comments that fungi are most recognizable in two of their life forms. These two forms are first, the feeding or energy-accumulating phase and second, the reproductive and dispersal phase (41). Some fungi are considered pathogenic to humans and some molds release toxic chemicals called mycotoxins that are associated with severe and hazardous health risks including poisoning and death.

Mold Symptoms

When molds germinate and grow large amounts of mold spores can be produced. Allergic, cold and flu like symptoms, or possible health risk, or hazard, may occur in susceptible individuals. (Return to Top)

Are some molds more hazardous than others?

Toxins in the environment can sometimes be poisons/proteins that are created/produced by a living organism that has the potential to damage a living body. This broad associated definition is the possible premise for the common term “toxic” mold used frequently by the general public. Specifically to mold Aspergillus, Fusarium, Penicillium, Chaetomium and Stachybotrys can release chemicals called mycotoxins during the metabolic cycle that can be “toxic” to humans. These chemicals can be released freely into the air, present within the mold, the mold spores, or in the substance where the mold is growing.

Effects of Mold

Exposure to mycotoxins has greater risk/hazard than irritative, or allergenic molds. Mycotoxins can be present in homes, food, office buildings, and agricultural environments. The elderly, children, immune compromised individuals, asthmatics and anyone challenged by poor health may be far more susceptible, and at greater risk, when exposed to mold. (Return to Top)

How am I exposed to molds?

Mold spores cause health problems when they are inhaled in large numbers. You can also be exposed through eating and dermal contact. Most molds given the right conditions have the potential to cause some ill health effects in susceptible individuals. (Return to Top)

How does mold affect my health?

It is not healthy for anyone to be exposed to mold inside of buildings. Some people will suffer no ill effects in a moldy environment while others may suffer from relatively brief exposure to fungal contamination.
Health Effects of Mold
Investigation into mold related health issues are on-going nationwide. It is the subject of study by scientists, in the public and private sectors, universities, physicians, industrial hygienists and local state and federal regulatory bodies.
(Return to Top)

What health symptoms are common with mold exposure?

Allergic reactions are the most common mold health problem from exposure such as allergic rhinitis, dermatitis, asthma associated aggravation and hypersensitivity pneumonitis. A toxic affect may cause flu-like symptoms such as fever, runny nose, headache, fatigue and muscle pain. A lack of concentration and mood swings have also been reported. Rare fungal infections are usually suffered by the seriously immune compromised. Some individuals will have no reaction when exposed to molds while other, susceptible, individuals may suffer from more severe health risk, or hazard. This is a subject under continuous and evolving study by experts. (Return to Top)

Black Mold - Toxic Mold - Stachybotrys - Mold Health Concerns

Mold Information
Investigations into mold related health issues are on-going worldwide. It is the subject of study by scientists, universities, physicians, industrial hygienists, and local, state, and federal regulatory bodies. Currently, there still remains no local, state, or federal guidelines on limits for mold. Many states have introduced, or implemented laws on mold. The federal government is working with many states and local governments, indoor air quality organizations and professionals, to create adequate public information, and to assist in the establishment of scientifically valid guidelines, protocols, and methodologies. Standards such as Time Weighted Average (TWA) or Threshold Limit Values (TLVs) for air borne concentrations of mold, and mold spores, are yet to be determined. Many professionals within the industry believe that standards may never be set, due to the highly variable susceptibility levels amongst those exposed to microbial mycotoxins.

Mold News and Information - Keep it Dry - Keep it Mold Free

Airtight construction for energy efficiency in structures that have not provided adequate ventilation methods for moisture to escape, water leaks, or intrusion due to flooding, bad plumbing, poor maintenance, or roof leaks, are examples of contributing factors that can lead to mold, and that need to be corrected when present. Left unattended conditions, such as these, can contribute to seen and unseen mold growth. Moisture conducive to mold growth can exist in all indoor climates regardless of geographic location. Indoor humidity should be kept below 60%. Condensation should not be present on walls, windows, or interior surfaces due to such things as dryers, dishwashers, stoves, or heaters that are not vented properly. Use fans - ventilate - open windows - keep it dry and keep it mold free.

Mold Removal: Mold Should Be Removed From Indoor Environments to Assure

Healthy and Sanitary Conditions
Some possible health effects associated with mold exposure and susceptibility are: Allergy, infection, irritation and toxicity. The elderly, children, immune compromised individuals, asthmatics, and anyone in poor health, may be far more susceptible, and at greater risk for health problems, when exposed to fungi or mold. People are exposed to mold through the air they breathe, contact with skin and ingestion. Some people will appear to suffer no ill effects in a moldy environment, while others can appear to suffer from a relatively small amount of mold spores.

To be considered prior to the finalization of regulated mold limits is the fact that pre-remediation and post remediation mold testing allows the consumer to safeguard against personal health liability and to obtain legally defensible documentation in the event that serious health concerns continue or arise, or if litigation is imminent. Mold testing done by a non-remediation mold investigator at both pre and post remediation provides analysis results for samples taken at those locations and times, under similar conditions, for use in comparative data study and documentation. A professional mold inspector does not attempt to diagnose any health issue, or comment on any legal action. Medical and Legal advice in regards to mold exposure, health risk, or hazard, should always be handled by a physician, or an attorney experienced in fungal contamination and its associated concerns.

Mold News
Press Release - Digital Diagnostic Systems
SACRAMENTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–April 28, 2004–Digital Diagnostic Systems (DDS) has developed a computer-based digital imaging system that has taken mold testing, identification and quantification into the 21st century with real-time Internet diagnostic capabilities. The Digital DIS-10 System allows mold investigators to transmit photomicrographs of mold samples, taken in the field, directly to a laboratory for analysis by microbiologists or mycologists in real-time. Technical diagnostic information exchanged via the Internet and the advanced microscopy technology of the DIS-10 realized its place in an emerging mold industry when consumers began licensing the system after visiting the company website.
Toxic mold is the buzz word associated with high profile mold litigation. Consumer awareness of mold and its potential health effects has increased through lawsuits involving media heavyweights such as Erin Brokovich, Ed McMahon and Michael Jordan. Now toxic mold investigations have gone high-tech with technology designed to harness the power of the Internet as it was originally designed to be used – for the rapid real-time disbursement of information without geographic restrictions.

Mold testing is used for real property transfers, remediation validation and clearance, mold site analytical documentation, and to assist physicians attempting to isolate a harmful organism. Most laboratories destroy samples after generating analytical data and results. In contrast, the mold photomicrographs taken by the Digital DIS-10 System become easily retrievable, permanent, legally defensible, visual evidence supportive of expert testimony.

“Currently we have systems nationwide with expansions planned internationally,” said Steve Furnas, President of Digital Diagnostic Systems. “Joining our efforts is Dr. Malcolm Richardson, internationally renowned medical mycologist, as our principal advisor.” Malcolm Richardson B. Sc. Ph.D., CBiol., FIBiol., FRCPath, is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Pathologists and the Institute of Biology (UK). He is CEO of MoBiAir Diagnostics Ltd., in Finland and Associate Professor in Medical Mycology University of Helsinki with adjunct affiliation with Helsinki University Central Hospital. Furnas also commented, “After contacting and visiting our California location Dr. Richardson is very enthusiastic about the advantages of the DIS-10 System and his association with Digital Diagnostic Systems.”
