Air Quality Testing
Mould Testing – What Type of Air Quality Testing Method?
If mould testing is pursued, these are the three most common types of samples collected:
- Air sampling: the most common form of sampling to assess the level of mould. A sampling of the inside and outdoor air is conducted and the results to the level of mould spores inside the premises and outside are compared. Often, air sampling will provide positive identification of the existence of non-visible mould.
- Surface samples: sampling the number of mould spores deposited on indoor surfaces (tape, and dust samples.
- Bulk samples: the removal of materials from the contaminated area to identify and determine the concentration of mould in the sample.
