Homes and Offices Can Breed “Bad Air”

 

Most people spend 90% of their time indoors. Indoor air quality plays a greater role in the health of people who spend most of their time indoors: the very young, the elderly and those who are chronically ill. Air inside homes, offices, schools and other buildings can be more polluted than outdoor air because heating, cooling and ventilation systems are common sources of bacterial growth.

 

A Simple Do-It-Yourself Test To Determine Your Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

 

You can easily and inexpensively screen for potentially harmful bacteria and fungus inside your home or office by combining a sterile dry surface sampler with our patented Micro Inspector Total Microbe test.

 

Two Ways to Sample and Test for Bacterial Contamination in Your Air

 

Sample Air Filter

1. Do-It-Yourself (DIY): Sample Air Filter

Air filters are designed to catch particles floating in the air. If not changed regularly, they become a breeding ground for bacteria by providing an ideal environment of warmth and moisture. Even when changed regularly, bacteria may form quickly and spread thoughout your home or office. To obtain a sample from your air filter, remove it from the circulation source (air conditioner, etc.) and use the dry surface sampler provided: pour rinse solution onto sponge, wipe sample “zone” on filter, place sponge back into it’s container, pour remaing solution into container, shake and pour contents into sample cup. Run Total Microbe test. Compare results to chart. Sample Air Filter

 

 

 

 

 

Sample Air Duct

2. Do-It-Yourself (DIY): Sample Air Duct

Air ducts can become a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. To obtain a sample from your air duct and use the dry surface sampler provided: pour rinse solution onto sponge, wipe sample “zone” inside air duct or on duct vent, place sponge back into it’s container, pour remaing solution into container, shake and pour contents into sample cup. Run Total Microbe test. Compare results to chart.
