Mold Surface samples can also be conducted when there is a suspicious organic appearing growth that should be tested to determine if it is in fact mold and let us know what species.  Surface testing is vital is there is exposed growth that may be questionable.  We can directly relate what is found on a surface sample of mold to what we also find in the air.  If both types of samples match we know we have cross contamination wherever the air decides to flow at a given moment inside a building.
