How do I collect an air sample?
The simple steps to collecting an air sample are:
- 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.
- Remove the cassette from the pump. Place it in a Ziploc bag and label it
- Label the bag. (ex: “A1 = living room”).
- Place all bags in one larger Ziploc bag and write the address location.
