Do you have a mold problem or just a dirty basement? To answer these questions professionals, need to be consulted to find scientific answers. Industrial Hygienists are specialists in identifying issues in workplaces or public facilities that could pose risk to those occupying the building. They can provide testing, protocols and consulting to help mitigate, remediate or eliminate these issues.
When dealing with mold there are two tests that can be performed to discover if you truly have an issue or not. The first test is the Indoor Air Quality test. During this test a sample of air is taken utilizing an air pump and special filter that traps air particles that will later be analyzed by a lab. Based on the particles collected the I.H. can determine how contaminated the air is. The second type of test is called a lift test. This is used to identify how contaminated surfaces are. A sticky tape is utilized to take a sample to be analyzed by a lab. Either way before jumping to conclusions about mold be sure that you have the proper science being used to back up your decisions.
