Here is an example of a Mold Test Kit. We paid under $10.00 and bought it locally in San Diego. These type of test kits are also available on line. This one is only an example of such products.
The results with these test kits can be dramatic. When mold is present, the test dish can become filled with some real nasty looking growth. These results may not be scientifically precise for a full blown lawsuit but it can be pretty impressive when shown to a landlord, City Code Inspector or Small Claims Court Judge. Just be sure to follow the directions in the kit and document your procedures when using the kit. Remember to adhere to all safety precautions when dealing with mold.
DISCLAIMER - We did not use or test the above sample product and cannot verify its effectiveness, safety, validity or usefulness. It is shown as an example of such products. Exercise your judgment in taking any test for the presence of suspected mold and follow all safety recommendations when choosing and using such test kits.
