Another form of a sample, known as surface sampling can include taking lift & swab samples. Lift (or tape) sampling is an adhesive-backed slide that collects a physical sample by pressing the adhesive to the area being tested. Swab sampling is the collection of a predetermined surface area with a sterile swab.
OUR TESTS OUR EVALUATED IN A LABORATORY
Shamrock Mold Inspections will help determine what the appropriate collection of media will be. In either case, your samples will be delivered to an independent laboratory to be evaluated. Both the concentrations and types of mold present may help to determine the cause of these issues and how to best deal with them.
SOME MOLDS OCCUR FROM WATER INTRUSION
For example, some types of mold are more likely to occur from a constant, long term water intrusion. We will use this information to form a hypothesis and write a protocol that will outline how the necessary steps to remedy the problem.
