In the U.S. mold is present in over 50% of homes. Not only that, but 28% of people carry genes that make them more likely to fall ill from their toxic effects.

That’s why it’s always best to get your home tested if you suspect you’ve got a mold problem. With the right test, you can determine the type, level, and toxicity of the mold in your home.

Want to know what the best mycotoxin test is? Read on to find out why EMMA testing is right for you.

What Is the EMMA Mycotoxin Test?

The Environmental Mold and Mycotoxin Assessment, or the EMMA test, is used for detecting the presence of mold in your home. With EMMA testing, you can find if your home contains:

  • One of the ten most toxic molds
  • Mold that’s among the most poisonous

The testing process is fairly simple and uses tools and technology that help detect the amount of mold present and how damaging it could be.

After the sample’s taken you’ll receive your results within ten working days. EMMA is a quick and efficient mycotoxin testing method that provides reliable results.

Why Mycotoxin Testing Matters

Mycotoxins are natural byproducts of particular molds and fungi that can grow within your home. They tend to thrive in warm, damp areas and can pose serious health risks, especially for those with high sensitivity.

It’s best to have EMMA testing when someone that lives with you falls sick suddenly and without explanation. In such a case, it’s always possible that mycotoxin toxicity could be the cause.

Common symptoms of mold toxicity to look out for include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Digestive issues

If you’ve spotted mold in your home and one of your family members is experiencing any of these issues, it’s time for testing. At Elite Mold Services, our experts can do that for you.

Common Types of Mold in Homes

A functional medicine doctor can test for mycotoxins and help you determine if you’re suffering from mold toxicity. If you know what type of mold you’ve tested for, EMMA can allow us to help you find if the same mold lives in your home.

Here are some of the most prevalent molds that we look for:

  • Aflatoxin
  • Gliotoxin
  • Ochratoxin

If we detect that your home’s mold-free, it’s important to look at other sources which could be causing your problem. Mold can also come from the food you eat or your workspace.
