Air Quality Sampling
In an air quality mold test, a mold inspector will take samples from inside a home or office and then outdoors. By using a special cassette, Air-O-Cell/Allergenco, mold spores can be captured on a special medium and suspended until further analysis at the laboratory. Mold spores that are present inside at larger numbers than the outdoors, typically reflect a potential source of mold growing indoors.
