Mold spores in the air, both outdoors and indoors, are not uncommon. Mold spores can enter the residence through windows and doors from the outside. The importance of mold is determined by its degree or concentration within compared to outside. One air sample test correctly depicts the number of spores in the air at the time of the test, which can and does fluctuate from one second to the next or day to day. The air test is typically conducted once per 1000 square feet indoors and once per 1000 square feet outdoors. A frequently asked question is why an outside air test is required. The explanation is that an outside test serves as a baseline or reference point for comparing spore counts indoors.
When there is Visible Evidence present, a surface test is done to determine the type of mold on that surface. It identifies the type rather than the species. Molds come in over a million different varieties. The swab test used during this examination will identify the species family but not the specific species. This test would have the laboratory growing the sample, which is possible but typically unnecessary if the mold can be classified to a certain family or category.
Important: If you have mold and it has to be removed, it cannot be overstated how important it is to hire a skilled remediation contractor who will take extra care to remove the contaminated items without polluting the property throughout the removal process. To decrease the danger, cleanup contractors frequently utilize big vacuums and fans. After remediation, an air test should be done by someone other than the remediation contractor.
