Indoor Air Samples are usually performed in order to test for nonviable (dead) mold spores. Testing for nonviable mold is done by microscopic examination of the sample to identify fungal and non-fungal particles that may be allergenic to individuals. Other particles such as: fiberglass, insect fragments, rusts, dirts, and more are also detected during non-viable testing. This is the quickest way to test for airborne mold spores and other harmful particles.
Testing for viable (living) mold is done by placing the sample onto agar culture medium that supports the growth of the organism(s) in question and allows identification of the species and level of contamination. This takes more time and is more costly.
When colonization occurs one mold has overtaken your entire home. Colonization is the formation of compact population groups of the same type of mold species.
· Bulk Sampling Bulk samples include, but are not limited to, chunks of carpet, insulation, and wallboards. Bulk samples are collected from visibly moldy surfaces by scraping or cutting materials with a clean tool and placing the sample into a petri dish for testing.
· Surface Sampling Surface samples are collected by wiping a measured area with a sterile swab or by lifting a sample with bio tape. The surface sample is cultured and then placed into a petri dish. Surface samples are collected by wiping a measured area with a sterile swab or by lifting a sample with bio tape. The surface sample is cultured and then placed into a petri dish. The petri dish is inspected by a lab technician under a microscope so that the fungi can be removed and identified by species.

Infections can be caused by molds found in indoor air. At extreme levels, hypersensitive pneumonitis may develop. Individuals with compromised immune systems or aggravated health conditions can be especially susceptible to invasive mold infections. Mold blamed for breathing problems
Inflammation Associated with VOC's (volatile organic compounds)
Toxin-induced inflammation is caused by repeated or high levels of exposure to airborne Mycotoxins. These Mycotoxins irritate the mucous membranes associated with the eyes, nose, and throat. If spores are inhaled and reach the lung alveoli, they may induce inflammatory reactions and cause toxic pneumonitis. The musty odor associated with airborne molds may cause headaches, dizziness, dermatitis, diarrhea, and impaired immune function.
Allergic reactions may be the most common health problem of mold exposure. Typical symptoms reported (alone or in combination) include:
· Respiratory problems, such as wheezing, and difficulty in breathing
· Nasal and sinus congestion
· Eyes-burning, watery, reddened, blurry vision, light sensitivity
· Dry, hacking cough
· Sore throat
· Nose and throat irritation
· Shortness of breath
· Skin irritation
· Central nervous system problems
· Constant headaches
· Memory problems
· Mood changes
· Aches and pains
· Possible fever
