Mold is a rapidly-growing fungus that can be found, at some level, just about everywhere. Mold levels can become problematic, however, in any area that is regularly dark and damp. It is often hidden within walls, behind furniture, or in other out-of-sight places. And when mold is growing in the home, it is also present in the air. Certain types of mold are considered to be toxic to the environment and require immediate attention. Inhalation of toxic molds can cause extreme sickness and lung disease. Aspergillus and Stachybotrys are listed as potentially toxic molds of the home or workplace and can cause cold-like symptoms, rashes, sinus inflammation, eye irritation, aggravation of asthma, inability to concentrate or fatigue.
FAST Screen Check
is a do-it-yourself kit for quickly detecting the presence or absence of Aspergillus or Stachybotrys without the need to send a sample into the laboratory. You'll see the test results in just 5 minutes.
This kit also comes with a bonus Bio-Scan400 that can be used as an additional sample to be mailed in for lab analysis. The Bio-Scan400 will identify and provide concentration levels for hundreds of types of molds. Included in the analysis will be concentration levels for Aspergillus and Stachybotrys if found to be present in the FAST Screen Check.
Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory (EDLab) will provide a final report, based on the BioScan400, and is included in the cost of the Fast Screen Check. This report will be generated and emailed within 3-5 business days. The lab report provided will show detailed information on the genus level of each mold type identified as measured in Counts/cm, and will have guidelines for what is considered to be a normal manageable level, as compared to the total levels of each pollutant found on the BioScan400.
