How do I collect an air sample?

 In

The simple steps to collecting an air sample are:

  1. Run your air pump with the cassette inside. You’ll need 2,400 litres for a clearance test, and 480 litres for personal air monitoring.
  2. Remove the cassette from the pump. Place it in a ziplock bag and label it
  3. Label the ziplock bag. (ex: “A1 = living room”).
  4. Place all ziplock bags in one larger Ziploc bag and write the address location.
