Surface Dust + VOCs + Formaldehyde


*There is only one slide provided with the surface dust test.*

Measures and reports total levels of surface dust, detects over 500 VOCs, actively growing mold, and formaldehyde in your home. Results e-mailed within 5 business days of receiving your samples at our lab.

Surface Dust

性爱五月This is designed for the rapid collection of a wide range of airborne aerosols including mold spores, pollen, insect parts, skin cells, fibers, mineral dust,  the biogenic and  inorganic particles and opaque particles.

Sample Report

The Surface Dust test is specifically designed to capture:


  • mold Spores and filamentous structures generated from fungal growth
  • algae and protozoan organisms: Chlorophyll producing “algae” spores or filaments and other protozoans associated with biofilm generation
  • pollen & fern spores: reproductive spores generated by flowering plants and ferns
  • skin cell fragments (Dander): generated by human or animals
  • all particles associated with insects including leg parts, wing scales, and body chiton fragments


  • fibrous glass fibers: fibrous transparent glass fibers (fiberglass & mineral wool is used primarily as insulation materials and fillers in ceiling tiles)
  • cellulosic fibers: natural cellulosic fibrous materials used as clothing, paper, etc.
  • synthetic fibers: fibrous manufactured fibers used as clothing, bedding, drapes,
    carpeting, etc. (primarily nylon, rayon, etc.)


  • opaque particles: typically decayed biological material, corrosion particles, and paints / pigments
  • fire/combustion residue: combustion particles including Soot, Char, Ash, and other burned plant or soil material including mineral grains, plant phytoliths, or pollen. Indoor fire residue will also include other plastics, furniture finishes, and construction materials
  • anthropogenic/mineral Crystalline soil mineral grains and/or construction materials particles
  • other uncommon particles: less common particles including copier toner, starch grains, droplet-like particles, specific unique minerals, or corrosion particles

2 reviews for Surface Dust + VOCs + Formaldehyde

Very interesting and detailed report from this home test. Very efficient way of finding out the air quality of your home. The almost 15 page report provided detail findings and suggestion of what to do regarding the VOCs that might be in your home.

Was easy to use and results came during the estimated time frame.
