Hello, I was hoping for some help in understanding these ranges on an air test that was recently done in my bedroom as well as the kitchen/living area.
We live in South Florida and found water damage caused by a leak in our roof that has caused mold to grow in the walls which is now being dealt with and a mold remediation company came and did the air test, the results of which are below. Any and all help would be appreciated thank you, I am especially worried because what the inspector referred to as a small amount of stachybotrys was found and I know that's considered "toxic black mold".
Ascospores: Raw Count= 6, Count/m3=40, %=14
Aspergillis/Penicillium-Like: Raw Count= 29, Count/m3=193, %=66
Basiodiospores: Raw Count=1, Count/m3=7, %=2
Cladosporium: Raw Count=7, Count/m3=47, %=16
Stachybotrys: Raw Count=1, Count/m3=7, %=2 Total Spores: Raw Count=44, Count/m3=293 Hyphal Fragments: Raw Count=2, Count/m3=13 Debris Rating: 3 Detection Limit: 7
Ascospores: Raw Count= 6, Count/m3=40, %=23
Aspergillis/Penicillium-Like: Raw Count= 8, Count/m3=53, %=31
Basiodiospores: Raw Count=2, Count/m3=13, %=8
Cladosporium: Raw Count=6, Count/m3=40, %=23
Smut/Myxomyced/Periconi: Raw Count=4, Count/m3=27, %=15 Total Spores: Raw Count= 26, Count/m3=173
Pollen: Raw Count= 1, Count/m3=7
Debris Rating: 3

It appears that your Stachybotrys count is a bit high. We really want zero when it comes to this kind of mold.
