Indoor air quality diagnosis. Measures the contamination of the indoor environment by molds and fungi. Analysis by a certified laboratory.
After a water damage or a moisture problem in a dwelling, the ambient conditions are favorable for the development of molds. These pathogenic micro-organisms quickly colonize the indoor environment of dwellings and release odors that irritate the respiratory tract, allergens and mycotoxins that are highly toxic to humans.
The YOOTEST Molds analysis test enables the precise measurement of indoor air pollution by mold and fungi.
You take a dust sample from the room you wish to analyze with a domestic vacuum cleaner fitted with a filter supplied.
You return your dust sample with the prepaid envelope provided.
Our expert laboratory analyses your samples and produces a comprehensive and comprehensible report including advice on how to improve the quality of your indoor air.
This test is also recommended after the cleaning and decontamination of areas invaded by mould and fungus, to check the effectiveness of the intervention and the quality of the treatment carried out, as a simple cleaning can create the illusion but is unfortunately not enough.
The use of fungicides is very frequent for the durable elimination of mold. It is therefore recommended to test the indoor environment for residues of toxic fungicides.
The analysis of the dust sample focuses on the development of moulds present in the sample on specific culture media.
The identification carried out makes it possible to distinguish the different strains of molds, including the most harmful to health such as aspergillus or alternaria, and to determine the species precisely.
It is supplemented by a precise measurement of the number of units for each type of mold detected.
The YOOTEST Mould Test can be used by anyone without technical or scientific competence.
It includes the following items:
Mould contamination of the indoor environment is assessed by identifying and quantifying the mould contained in a dust sample taken from the selected room.
The sampling device included in the YOOTEST Mould Kit consists of a nozzle to be attached to the vacuum cleaner hose.
Once the sampling is completed, the filter is returned to the laboratory with the sampling plug using the prepaid envelope provided.
It is recommended to use one test for a maximum area of 650 to 850 square feet (60 to 80 m2).
Mold testing is strongly recommended after water damage or flooding, as infiltration into walls, floors or ceilings contributes to the creation of favorable conditions for mold growth.
A test can also be performed to verify the quality of the work done after water damage or flooding.
