Medical studies have found that black mold is the #1 cause of allergic symptoms. The mold Stachybotrys found in home, office and school environments has been linked to fatal pulmonary disorders.

Our simple do-it-yourself test which indicates the presence of molds within 48 hours. Optional lab analysis is available, which identifies the exact count and type of mold present.

PRO-LAB's Black Mold Test Kit utilizes patented laboratory analytical method for accuracy and reliability. To help detect the possibility of mold, do you notice any of the following?Discoloration or black mold on baseboards, wallboards, or wallpaper. Cracks in shower tile, lack of caulking, loose toilet seal, leaks under sink Carpet and padding in direct contact with concrete slab
Poorly maintained or dirty air conditioning/heating vents and filters
Damp basement or crawl space
Water penetration (water marks on walls, mold spots on walls)
Musty/ moldy odor

If you answered YES to any of the above questions, then you could be EXPOSED TO TOXIC BLACK MOLD!

                           What is Mold and Where Is It Found?

Molds are microscopic organisms, found virtually everywhere, indoors and outdoors. Molds can be found on plants, foods, dry leaves, and other organic material. Also susceptible to mold growth are cellulose materials, such as, cardboard, paper, ceiling tiles, and sheet rock. Mold spores are easily detached and made airborne by vacuuming, walking on a carpet or sitting on a couch. In indoor environments, mold can grow in air conditioning ducts, carpets, pots of houseplants, etc.

                             How Can Mold Affect Your Health?

Exposure to mold is not healthy for anyone but the following individuals are at a higher risk for adverse health effects: infants, children, elderly, immune compromised patients, pregnant women, and individuals with existing respiratory conditions. When inhaled, even in small amounts, mold can cause a wide range of health problems including respiratory problems (wheezing), nasal and sinus congestion, watery and red eyes, nose and throat irritation, skin irritation, aches and pains, fevers, asthma, emphysema and in some cases even death.

Mold Can Be Found In Many Areas Of Your Home Attic Living Rooms Bathrooms (HVAC) Ventilation System Bedrooms Kitchens Basements Any Moist Areas Carpets Garage

                            How Can You Be Exposed To Mold?

When moldy materials become damaged or disturbed, spores (reproductive bodies similar to seeds) can be released into the air. The following are sources of indoor moisture that may cause mold problems in your home or office: flooding, leaky roofs, humidifiers, damp basements or crawl spaces, constant plumbing leaks, house plants, steam from cooking, shower/bath steam and leaks, wet clothes, and clothes dryers vented indoors. Protection...Testing Is Your First Line Of Defense

To find out if mold is a problem in your home or office, you must conduct a mold test!

The PRO-LAB Mold Test Kit utilizes a patented laboratory analytical method for accuracy and reliability. The easy to use do-it-yourself test allows you to determine whether toxic mold spores are in the air that your breath. Visual sampling may also be conducted. Optional lab analysis is available to indicate the exact count and type of mold present.

                    The Black Mold Stachybotrys Chartarum (atra)

Stachybotrys Chartarum (atra) is a greenish-black toxic mold that colonizes particularly well in high-cellulose material, such as straw, hay, wet leaves, dry wall, carpet, wall paper, fiber-board, ceiling tiles, thermal insulation, etc. Stachbotrys, before drying, is wet and slightly slimy to touch. There are about 15 species of Stachybotrys, known throughout the world. This toxic mold grows in areas where the relative humidity is above 55%. This type of mold does not grow on plastic, vinyl, concrete products, or ceramic tiles. It is not found in the green mold on bread or the black mold on the shower tiles.

Stachybotrys produces a mycotoxin that causes human mycotoxicosis.This type of mold is thought to be a possible cause of the sick building syndrome. Children's exposure to Stachybotrys spores are thought most likely to cause pulmonary hemosiderosis (bleeding in the lungs). The following is a list of symptoms associated with exposure to Stachybotrys mold spores: Respiratory problems, such as wheezing, and difficulty in breathing Nasal and sinus congestion Eyes-burning, watery, reddened, blurry vision, light sensitivity Dry, hacking cough Sore throat Nose and throat irritation Shortness of breath Chronic fatigue Skin irritation Central nervous system problems (constant headaches, memory problems, and mood changes) Aches and pains Possible fever Diarrhea Possible hemosiderosis Immune suppression Professional Mold Test Kit by PRO-LAB™



The PRO-LAB Professional Mold Test Kit (patented) is designed to detect dangerous molds that may be in your home or office. The test kit offers three (3) different analytical sampling methods.
Method 1: (visual sampling) simply involves taking a sample of a visual mold growth.
Method 2: (HVAC air sampling) allows you to take an air sample of the air-conditioning or heating system
Method 3: (settling plate) allows you to take an air sample of a location which does not have an HVAC system.
After the 48 hour incubation period, you may choose to send your sample to PRO-LAB for a detailed analysis ($30) of the exact type of mold present. This information will be useful to determine an individuals allergy treatment and the cleaning or removal of the mold.

Water Quality Test Kit is inexpensive, easy-to-use and reliable means to check water quality at home with instant results. Accurately monitors municipal and well water as well as the efficiency of home water filtration devices and is recommended for use every 3 months.

We know that man-made chemicals, the majority of which were introduced into society after World War II, have been poisoning our surface drinking water supplies for years. Over the decades they have filtered down and contaminated our vital underground drinking sources as well.

Some experts believe the toxins in our drinking water are the number one health threat causing cancer, heart disease and lead poisoning. Such chronic illnesses are brought on by the body's absorption. Water contaminants not only affect our health, but they can also corrode fixtures, stain and deteriorate clothing and household surfaces, alter the taste of food and drinking water, and slowly turn hair orange.

                                                  Chlorine
Chlorinating water is necessary for disinfecting; however, over-chlorination produces by-products known as trihalomethanes. One trihalomethane, chloroform, is a known carcinogen.

                                               Nitrate/Nitrite
Nitrate/Nitrite is a chemical that seeps our drinking water from fertilizer, sewage, feed lots and other geological elements. Nitrate over 10 ppm reduces the amount of oxygen available to the fetus in pregnant women causing "Blue Baby Syndrome" (methemoglobulinemia). It is also considered an immediate threat to children 6 months to 1 year old, and is a major health threat to adults.

                                                      Iron
Iron is a mineral found in the ground that leaches into drinking water. Although a certain amount of iron is essential to good health, iron levels above .3 ppm cause water to taste bitter, stain and discolor our laundry, fixtures and hair. It is listed under the secondary standards for water.

                                            Water Hardness
Water hardness is a measure of calcium and magnesium in water, neither of which are potential health risks in and of themselves. But hard water above 125 ppm tends to form scales inside pipes that, over time, can actually help to form a barrier from a dangerous lead contaminating drinking water from surrounding lead pipes. However, too much hard water buildup can clog pipes and heaters making cleaning operations much more difficult.

Low water hardness of less than 54 ppm can be corrosive to plumbing and should only be considered a problem if you have lead soldered pipes.

                                           Water Acidity (pH)
Measurements below 7 indicate that the water is corrosive to plumbing, resulting in lead leaching into your tap water.

A desirable reading is between 7 and 7.5.
With PRO-LAB's kit you can easily test for all of these water quality problems. All five tests should take less than 5 minutes and will provide accurate and reliable results.

The PRO-LAB Professional Water Quality Test Kit contains eight (8) individually foil wrapped, laboratory grade test strips (patented), allowing you to perform a total of sixteen (16) water tests, (2 or each test) in order to determine the quality of your water. There are also directions on this page, to check for two (2) additional contaminates, iron bacteria and hydrogen sulfide. Each test has its own directions. For accurate results, you must follow the directions exactly.

pH is a measure of the acidic or basic character of water. Results below 7 indicate acidity and one above 7 indicates alkalinity. Water with low pH can be corrosive to plumbing fixtures, hot water systems, and leave red stains on galvanized pipe, blue-green stains on copper, and may also release harmful amounts of lead into your water from solder joints and pipes.

Total Alkalinity is the ability of water to resist change in pH. A low total alkalinity may cause your water to appear cloudy and contribute to scaling. When the total alkalinity is too high the pH tends to be high as well.

Total Chlorine consists of both free chlorine and combined (already reacted) chlorine. Free chlorine affects the taste and odor of you water and may irritate your skin and eyes. Chlorine is used to disinfect water in both private and Public Water Systems. However, during the disinfection process, excessive amounts of chlorine may react with decaying organic matter to form trihalomethanes, which can cause cancer.

Total Hardness is a measure of calcium and magnesium in your water. Hard water over 125 parts per million tends to form scales inside pipes creating a barrier between lead solder and the water itself thereby helping to prevent lead from entering into you drinking water. Low hardness, (soft water), less than 54 parts per million, can be corrosive to your plumbing.

                                                     Copper

Copper, is a metal which is commonly found in drinking water. Small amounts are generally not a problem. However, copper levels above 1ppm can cause jaundice, pancreatitis, poisoning of the red blood cells, gastrointestinal problems and anemia. The presence of copper also affects water's taste and may stain your porcelain toilets and sinks.
