Identifying Indoor Allergens in the home or business
Determining the presence of poor indoor air quality requires sophisticated equipment and training. Indoor Allergen Testing is risky if not conducted by a professional.
Air Testing: Air samples are taken with a specialized pump and air cassette. The air sample is then placed in a plastic bag and transported to the lab.
Bulk Materials Sampling: Bulk samples are collected from suspected surfaces or materials by cutting materials with a clean tool into a clean plastic bag.
Swab testing: A swab test is used for surface testing. The samples are collected by wiping a measured area by utilizing a sterilized swab. The swab is then placed in a seal tight tube and transported to the lab.
Tape Lift: A tape lift is used for surface sampling by stripping the suspect area surface with clear tape. The sample is then tape to a microscope slide and then placed in a seal tight container and transported to the lab.
Sampling Dust: Samples of dust are collected from a variety of sources that can contain pathogens. Such as the HVAC system ducts or filters, then sealed and sent to the lab.
