You can collect mold spores from the surface using so called “Tape Lift” technique. Tape Lift sampling is a simple technique, that is often used to collect settled dust sample from surfaces like floor, furniture, walls and even carpets. To collect a Tape Lift sample you need a roll of transparent tape, Ziploc bags, and a permanent marker. It is important to use a transparent tape, which is clear under high magnification and does not interfere with analysis. Please remember, neither Scotch tape nor Packing tape are not suitable for sampling.
The dust is imprinted on the tape and now can be tested by LCS Laboratory.
