Air quality is examined by attracting 15 cubic liters of air per minute and also affecting the airborne fragments over a glass substrate. This procedure takes 1-5 minutes relying on changeable conditions in the house. This sample is then sent out to an independent lab where the spores are determined and counted. An exterior “control” example is additionally required to identify a baseline “typical” to recognize the volume of molds in the natural surroundings as well as compare to the interior sample.
