Our examination includes a full visual investigation of the property, moisture detection with a digital moisture meter, leak detection, and collecting various samples for laboratory testing.
The sampling comprises of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) tests, and may also include surface sample testing (depending on the findings during the visual inspection), for mold, allergens, and other contaminants. We provide a variety sampling types in order to customize our services to your needs.
When sampling fungal concentrations in an environment, there are a number of different ways to do this. The most common of these methods is air sampling, which involves assessing the particulates found in an indoor environment. Studies have shown that airborne fungal spores have had an effect in increasing allergic and asthmatic symptoms in exposed humans. The main part of a human that is affected by exposure to these fungal spores is the respiratory system.
In order to best assess the possibility of exposure to contaminants such as molds, allergens and mycotoxins, samples are taken to identify the contaminants correctly. This process is called mold testing or allergen contaminates testing.
The next most common fungal spore testing method is surface sampling. Surface samples can include swabbing, taping, bulk and dust. In order to get the most accurate results, this method is often done alongside air sampling.
