DIY Mould and Bacteria Testing

So you have mould in your home and you just don't know where it is, whats causing it or how to find it. The good news is that we can help solve your problems. Often the first sign that you have mould is the smell. You will be able to detect a bad odour coming from somewhere in your indoor airspace environment. 

The smell is usually the first identifier because mould typically grows in places you can't see or don't get to clean to often. Of course the ultimate goal is to ensure that you don't get mould growing at all but let's face it, everybody and I mean everybody gets mould problems somewhere. 

Mould requires four things to grow:

  1. Water / Moisture 
  2. A tempurature between 18 - 30 degrees 
  3. Oxygen
  4. Mould spores

If all of these things are present in any given place. You are going to have mould growing. 

So how do you know how bad the mould situation is? If you have people in the house coughing, being sick constantly or having trouble breathing, its pretty bad. The first thing to do is identify where the mould is located. To do this you can use the SAN-AIR Mould and Bacteria Test Kit. Its very simple and only takes a week to get your results.


How to use:

  1. Open one of the ampule's and place on surface, inside your air-conditioner or in your water for up to a minute. 
  2. Place back inside the ampule and write on it the location that this particular sample taken from 
  3. Wait a week and then check the ampule and compare it to the graph on the instruction inside the box.

Now if you do not feel confident with reading accurate results yourself you can send the ampules back to us at SAN-AIR and we will do the analysis for you.

Hi Lauren,

Yes, we can get the test kits tested by a lab. We do however recommend that you send photos of the test kits to us first as our mould experts are able to identify mould family and give you likely causes for these moulds.

Thank you

Do you lab test the mould text kits? I have tested some walls in my house and would like to know what kind of mould is growing.
