Testing - Testing/assessing is done by taking air samples and surface samples and sending them off for analysis at at a lab. In Texas mold assessment/testing and mold remediation are split into two separately licensed business professions. One cannot test for mold and also remediate mold. Of course the testing has to be done first.
Protocol - The protocol is a written plan from the mold testing results of what has to be done to remove mold affected materials and get the building to "acceptable levels" of mold. Acceptable levels are not zero mold. Wherever you are right now, you are breathing some mold. It is just there. Elevated levels are the problem.
Mold assessors write the protocol so one should make sure it is included in the testing fees and not presented as an add-on charge later.
