Mold refers to natural microbes that are beneficial to the environment when occurring outside homes. However, their growth inside homes should be controlled and prevented to avoid harm to your health and damage to your belongings.
Molds usually spread inside the house when spores carry them through the air and deposit them on wet items. The mold spores are invisible to naked eye, but careful inspection of suspected problem areas can help in preventing their growth. Moisture, dampness, and humidity are the major reasons due to which mold grow in homes. Lack of air flow can be a major contributing factor to the excessive moisture needed to sustain mold growth.
The presence of mold in homes and workplace environments presents considerable health risks of illnesses and diseases. While it is generally not attributed to serious illness, mold in large quantities can lead to instances of neurological problems and death. Homeowners and employers need to routinely conduct air testing to check traces of mold to ensure health hazards are avoided as best as possible.
Mold can be checked easily by looking out for visible signs of excess moisture in buildings and homes. However, it is now possible to avert the dangerous consequences of health hazards through air testing for mold using advanced air cassette technologies. In this post, we explore what air testing for mold is and how it needs to be conducted through carefully controlled protocols and methods.

NY State regulations require all Legionella culture analyses to be performed by a laboratory that is approved to perform such analyses by the New York State Environmental Laboratory Approval Program (ELAP). SanAir Technologies Laboratory is proud to announce that our laboratory has received our ELAP certification for Legionella testing in New York State.
In many industries, such as pharmaceuticals, mining, and construction, air samples are important for analyzing the concentration of dust and other hazardous particles that can be detrimental to both business operations and employees. Air cassettes can be used to assess the risk of these dangers. These small devices allow users to collect a representative sample of air particles in a specific environment that help identify that an area is conducive for working and business operations.
In this post, we explore what air cassettes are and how they are utilized for air sampling.
