DOCUMENTATION

The Mycometer products are based on a well-documented technology. Independent, as well as scientists from Mycometer have published and are currently publishing papers on the technology in peer reviewed well reputed international journals and at scientific conferences. The technology has gone through the ETV (Environmental Technology Verification) program United States Environmental Agency (US-EPA´s). However, the best documentation is the fact that our customers keep coming back for more products and sales have been increasing every year since we started.

Mycometer-surface Applications

  • Post remediation verification (PRV)
  • Documenting the efficacy of the cleaning of surfaces for mould growth
  • Documentation of mould growth
  • Documentation that discoloration is NOT mould growth
  • Delineation of mould growth where it is non-visible. How much should be cleaned?
  • Documenting the cleaning of HVAC systems
