Test for Bacteria or Mould contamination in your indoor environment
- Fast test results
- Very easy to use
- Able to use the test to track where the worst areas are in the home.
- Can test Air, Surfaces or Water
The DIY mould and bacteria test kit will enable you to determine how concentrated the mould in your home is and where the worst spots are.
The test works over 5 days. After 5 days check the chart that is provided with the product and you will be able to see if you have low, medium or high levels of mould in your home. Make sure to take a photo of the test kit as well.
How many test kits do you need?
1 test kit per specific area to be tested. That is, if two areas in a single room need to be tested then a 2-pack test kit is required.
The more spot tests done with the test kit the greater chance of determining the best cause of why the mould or bacteria problem is occurring.
To give you further guidance, determine which of the following is closest to your situation and use the test kit number recommended.
|1. There is a particular area that I want to test||If it is only one spot get the SAN-AIR Test kit two pack. Use one test kit then clean the area and a month later use the second test kit to see if the spot has remained clean.|
|2. I want to test both the air from my air-conditioner and a couple of rooms where I suspect the problem is.||In this situation, a test kit for the air outlet from one of the air vents and 3 test kits for various room sampling. Get the SAN-AIR 4 pack test kit. Once you have identified the problem area you may want to buy an additional Test kit to sample the cleaned areas a month or two after you completed the clean.|
|3. I think I have a problem spreading through my home and I want to determine where it’s all stemming from.||This would seem a larger problem. Multiple areas of the interior should be tested. We suggest that you order the SAN-AIR 10 pack test kit.|
How to use the DIY Test Kit
It is a simple 4 step process:
1 – Take the tabbed piece out of the casing.
(Keep the casing, you will need it again to complete the test)
2 – Gather a sample.
Press the sides of the dip slide of the tabbed piece on the surface or material you wish to measure for mould up to 1 minute. Then place the tabbed piece back into the casing and back into the box that it came in.
3 – Check each day for the next 5 days.
Place on a window sill that gets sunlight. If you have mould or bacteria, you will see spots starting to form that look red or furry. The longer it takes, usually means the lower the problem in your home.
4 – Read the results
We give you an easy-to-use chart to judge the result yourself. Once you see mould or bacteria growing, use the given chart to measure the extent of the growth and severity of the problem.
Note: Each individual casing and tab can only be used once, for a single measurement.
