Applications of the Mycometer tool in the IAQ industry

Pre remediation:

Determine and document;

  • whether a surface contain fungal growth (and therefore is indicative of a moisture problems) (surface samples)
  • presence of a mould source (activated air samples)
  • potential exposure to mould (activated air samples)
  • fungal growth in porous materials. (e.g. cementitious materials, insulation) (bulk samples)
  • bacterial contamination after flooding, sewage backflow or leakage, or growth on moist surfaces (surface samples)

Post remediation:

  • QA/QC of surfaces cleaned for mould growth (surface samples)
  • QC of cleaning for spores dispersed during remediation (activated air samples)
  • QA/QC of surfaces cleaned for bacterial contamination (surface samples)
