The do-your-own mold testing protocol includes these steps:

1. Lift Tape Sampling

The property owner, manager, or tenant uses inexpensive, clear, transparent, sticky, one inch (2.54 cm) wide adhesive tape, such as Scotch® brand or similar tape that is cut into three inch (7.6 cm) long strips to collect the mold samples. Complete Scotch tape lift sampling instructions are provided at

D.I.Y. Scotch tape lift sampling is an easy, inexpensive, and effective way to do mold sampling anywhere in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex when a person—

(a) Sees mold growing on a wall, ceiling, floor, carpeting, furniture, heating/cooling duct register, or other surface;

(b) Wants to know whether a particular stain, discoloration, growth, or mystery substance on the wall or another surface is actually toxic mold;

(c) Smells possible mold odors (caused by the digestive gas emitted by mold eating the home, building, or contents) and wants to test a number of surfaces upon which elevated levels of airborne mold spores may have landed or been deposited, such as on walls, window sills, window and door trim, refrigerator top, kitchen cabinet tops, undusted furniture, heating/cooling duct registers, and the return air filter in the heating/cooling system; and/or

(d) Wants to test the inside walls of heating/cooling ducts for the possible presence of elevated levels of mold spores.

2. Take and Submit Pictures of Water Damage and Mold Growth

To supplement the collected lift tape samples, the property owner, manager, or tenant takes close up pictures with a smart cell phone or digital camera of any visible building water damage or mold growth, as well as pictures of the entire building, room, and areas from which the close up photographs were taken.

3. Send Lift Tape Samples and Mold Pictures to Phillip Fry for Lab Analysis and Fry’s Written Report Analyzing the Lab Results and Pictures

Up to three different collected lift tape samples (or alternatively, 2 inch by 2 inch physical samples of the actual mold growth itself as cut from mold-infested building materials or other surfaces such as carpeting), along with the lab “chain of custody form” available at, are then mailed (or sent via FedEx or an alternate delivery service) to EnviroFry, 10104 Sheridan Rd., Montrose, Michigan 48457, USA, along with the a check or money order for U.S. $200 payable to EnviroFry, or, alternatively, credit or debit card payment by sending money via to the PayPal email payment address of

Each lift tape sampling or physical mold sampling above the first three is only U.S. $35.00 per sampling to be lab analyzed.

Mold, building, and room or area pictures, along with a detailed description of any known building water leaks and flooding history or mould damage problems, should be sent either as actual developed photographs to the company address, or, preferably, as email attachments to
