Mold Air Sampling Interpretation and Evaluation

Although mold air sampling is technically straightforward, interpreting the results to decide if there is an indoor source is not. Applying formal statistical tests to mold sampling data is an error-prone practice due to the extreme data variability. With neither established exposure limits nor useful statistical techniques, indoor air quality investigators often must rely on their professional judgment, but the lack of a consensus “decision strategy” incorporating explicit decision criteria requires professionals to establish their own personal set of criteria when interpreting air sampling data.
