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 in a moment)
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.
Once identified you can proceed to remove the problem; check out our range of mould removing products.
Note: Each individual casing and tab can only be used once, for a single measurement.
