Here are the 3 EASY STEPS to a MoldCheck™ air or surface test!

Air Screening

Prove-it™ Surface Testing – D.I.Y.

STEP 1

Open one test film in each room.

STEP 1

Wipe the swab onto the surface to be tested. Then wipe the swab between the films in the pattern of an “x”.

STEP 2

After one hour of collection, squeeze the activating liquid between the films and press closed.

STEP 2

Squeeze the activating liquid between the films and press closed.

STEP 3

Example of high air count.See mold spore colonies as they grow to visible size on days 3, 4 and 5. This will show you the moldiest room. Go to that room and inspect it.

STEP 3

Example of gross surface contamination.
You’ve Got Mold!Check the mold colonies and color as they grow to visible size on days 3, 4, 5+. The Kit explains how to interpret test results.If black spores grow into brown colonies it may be Stachybotrys (Toxic) Mold

Air Testing Rationale

The reason you test your whole house or apartment (All your rooms) at the same time is to get a comparison. It’s just what a professional does in buildings with a mold complaint (For $500 to $1000.)

This is a scientific method kit made easy. The films are made by “3m Microbiology” for use in laboratories around the world. We’ve patented this new method for use in the field and help you get professional result.

Indoor Results

Test your rooms. After 48-72 hours (2-3 days) you’ll begin to see the visible spore colonies on each of your test films. Organize your films from the lowest to the highest counts. If there is a source of indoor mold growth, it is usually in or right next to the room with the highest mold spore count. Go to the area with the highest spore count and begin your search for a source of mold contamination and moisture intrusion using “The Building Investigation Guide™.”

Outdoors:

(Optional) The outdoor spore count provides a background reference count. During the outdoor growing season (above 50° F) outdoor mold spore counts will almost always be much higher than indoor counts, in a closed air-conditioned building. Outdoor mold spore settling counts can range from zero in the winter to over 400 spores per hour in the growing seasons of spring, summer and fall. Outdoor sampling is optional, but very interesting to see.

Using this new MoldCheck™ Mold Test Kits will help you detect and track down those hidden sources of indoor mold spores and perhaps lower your frequency of “allergic building episodes” and medication needs at home or work.
