Analyze Your Samples

Self-Analyze or Send Samples to Our Lab for Expert Analysis

Option 1: Self-Analyze

Seal and Store

Ensure all of your samples are sealed, labeled and placed in foil bags.

Store in dark place

Place foil bags in a warm (68 – 85ºF), dark place such as a kitchen cabinet or desk drawer.

Wait 5-7 days

After 5 or 7 days pull the samples out for analysis. If there is no mold growth, place the samples back in the foil packet and reanalyze after 7 or 8 days.

 

Check for Mold

Hold a mold plate up to a light and count the number of colonies (circles) growing on the agar. Compare to our health scale. Size of the circles is not important.

Colony Count and Health Effects*

0 to 4 total fungal colonies per area (room)

5 to 8 total fungal colonies per area (room)

Is cause for concern-illness is probable in individuals who are susceptible

9 or greater total fungal colonies per area (room)
