Quantity and concentration of Penicillium/Aspergillus spore types:
This score indicates the likelihood that spores of Penicillium or Aspergillus present in the indoor sample originated from indoor sources. A high score suggests that there is a high probability that Penicillium or Aspergillus is originating indoors, such as from active mold growth. A low score indicates that the spores present are more likely to have originated from outdoor sources and come inside through doors and windows, carried in on people’s clothing, or similar methods. Penicillium and Aspergillus are among the most common molds found growing indoors and are one of the more commonly found molds outside as well. Their spores are frequently present in both outdoor and indoor air, even in relatively clean, mold-growth-free, indoor environments. Additionally, their levels vary significantly based upon activity levels, dustiness, weather conditions, outside air exchange rates, and other factors.
We recommend that you consult with an EPA certified mold mitigation company if you are not familiar with how to locate and safely remove mold growth or how to identify and correct moisture problems that may exist.
Recommend contacting a qualified mold mitigation company for further evaluation of the moderate or high levels of Penicillium/Aspergillus that were identified in the air sample that was taken at the time of the inspection.
