Mold Test Kits Used in the Battle against Mold & Asthma


EMSL Analytical launches do-it-yourself mold test kit for homeowners.

EMSL Analytical, a leading provider of advanced environmental laboratory services and products, has been busy providing do-it-yourself mold test kits for concerned homeowners and parents. The test kits provide a science based answer to the question of, do I have mold in my home?

Using technology and health effects data developed by the US EPA, EMSL has created a home test kit to determine the mold level in homes. The EPA data suggests a correlation between childhood asthma and mold levels in homes in a study that was conducted in more than 1000 homes across the US. EMSL’s test kit provides a quick and simple way to test a home and compare it to the EPA’s national database to determine the relative moldiness of a home.

According to the EPA, molds produce allergens, irritants, and potentially toxic substances. The EPA also recognizes that mold exposure can trigger asthma attacks. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) over 20 million Americans are affected by asthma, 30,000 people have an asthma attack each day, and 11 people die daily due to asthma.

“These home test kits provide an affordable and accurate way to scientifically test a home,” stated Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President at EMSL Analytical Inc. “If a problem is found, then in most cases a qualified indoor air quality expert should be brought in to analyze the source and extent of microbial contamination,” Frasca continued.
