Stages of Mold Testing:

1. Air Sampling

When MOLD-OUT is called to investigate an area for Mold, a sample of indoor and outdoor air is often required. This procedure is called Air Sampling. Air Sampling tells what the level of airborn fungi is in the indoor and outdoor environment.

A building with no mold contamination should have about the same amount of fungi present in the air as the surrounding outdoor environment.

moldout testing and inspection

The Air-O-Cell operates upon the principle of inertial impaction. Particulate laden air is accelerated as it is drawn through the cassettes tapered inlet slit and directed towards a small slide containing the collection media, where the particles become impacted, and the air flow continues out the exit orifice. The adhesive nature of the collection media prevents the collected particulate from blurring or being washed off during the laboratory staining process, and eliminates sample loss from vibration during handling and shipment.

2. Tape Swab Test

Using a cotton material swab to wipe the surface to be tested. After touching one to three surfaces in the same location ,the swab is sealed in a container and sent to microbiology laboratory for examination. Swab testing is generally used to detect mold and determine what type of mold are present . This test is not typically designed to identify mold spore count.

3. Tape slide test

Tape slide tests are similar to swab test. a piece of tape placed onto area to be tested, lifted, and placed onto glass microslide.

The tape slide is then sealed and and sent to the microbiology laboratory for examination.
