This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Mold is something you should never ignore, as it can lead to respiratory problems, fungal infections, and more. However, a professional inspection can be pricey, so it's understandable if you don't want to drop a bundle on a test that may be unnecessary. These kits can give you an idea of what to expect before you hire a pro. They're not 100% accurate, though, so don't rely on them exclusively. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best mold test kit on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 11, 2018:

Many kits seem cheap up-front, then nickel-and-dime users with lab and shipping fees down the line. Our top picks focused on units that were transparent with pricing, as well as backed by reputable laboratories.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
