    Interpreting mold test results is not easy! This is particularly the case with air samples because there are no acceptable limits. While health risks depend on the amount of exposure, the large number of mold species and strains growing in buildings and the large inter-individual variability in human response to mold exposure preclude the derivation of exposure limits.

    In this short course you'll learn how you can interpret lab results.

    The results you receive from a laboratory are as good as the samples you submitted to the lab. Some of the mistakes mold inspectors make include submitting inadequate samples, submitting inappropriate samples, or collecting samples wrongly. In this course you'll learn how to correctly take mold samples, the various types of samples and when and how to collect them. You'll also learn about the various equipment used in mold sampling.
