Air Sampling

One of the biggest issues with mold growth is the impact it can have on indoor air quality. Active mold growth releases its spores directly into the air you breathe. The presence of mold isn't always visible on walls or ceilings, yet it can still pose a substantial issue. Utilizing air sampling for mold can determine if the indoor environment has been compromised. Mold and air quality testing are essential tools in this context, ensuring that mold air quality remains at safe levels.

From any regions in your home where mold is visible or suspected to be flourishing in concealed spots, samples are collected for an air quality check for mold. Additionally, we gather a control sample, typically from an outdoor location, to establish a baseline. This helps determine the expected mold presence in the vicinity and ensures accurate air quality test results.

Air Sampling

When conducting air quality and mold testing, there are primarily two methodologies for mold air sampling:

  • Culturable Air Sampling: In this method, a specialized instrument is employed to gather mold spores from the atmosphere. These spores are then deposited on a culture plate. After a designated incubation period, the mold spores begin to grow. By counting the resulting colonies on the plate, one can determine the mold spore concentration within the sampled air.
  • Non-culturable Air Sampling: For this approach, a device is used to capture mold spores from the air which are then transferred onto a slide. Under a microscope, this slide is meticulously examined to both identify and enumerate the mold spores present.

Both these techniques play a vital role in efforts to test mold air quality, helping to gauge the safety and cleanliness of the environment. The samples are dispatched to an independent testing laboratory, where the mold spores in the air are counted and the mold strains are identified. A certified expert, like a mold inspector or industrial hygienist, usually conducts mold air sampling. Based on the unique requirements of the project, the specialist determines the most suitable air sampling device and methodology to use.

When is mold air sampling necessary?

  1. In the presence of noticeable mold growth.
  2. In situations where mold is suspected, evidenced by a musty odor or when occupants exhibit health issues potentially linked to mold exposure.
  3. Post mold remediation, to confirm the complete removal of mold.
  4. As a standard procedure during an indoor air quality evaluation.
