Cladosporium mold in Air sampling test twice..Need Help Please

Hello everyone,

 

I did our 6 months environmental testing and the viable air sampling came back positive for Cladosporium at the entrance door of the Ante-Room, we had terminal cleaning done at least twice and we use Peridox (sporocidal) once a week. After having the company that do our tests come back for a retest, the results came back again positive with the same thing "Cladosporium" which is an actionable pathogen according to the lab that sent me the results.

 

Can someone guide me on how to fix this issue because I did a research but still not sure how can I fix this issue!!!

 

Thank you very much and appreciate your help.

I'm in the same boat with you.

We just had our testing done and had non-sporulating fungi and Gm(-) rods.

Part of routine engineering preventative maintenance is changing the room filters a month prior to testing.

We also did a triple terminal clean of the area.

We've had issues in the past with poor sampling technique of the testing company that were addressed.

We haven't scheduled re-testing yet, honestly, I'm worried the results will come out the same.

 

Any guidance would help.

 

Thank you,

Ivy
