Measuring the efficacy of mold remediation on contaminated ductwork


Reports on an evaluation of fungal remediation of contaminated ducts by comparing the amount of residual surface contamination to the amount in new ducts.  Fungal contamination of galvanised metal and rigid fibrous glass ducts were evaluated using fluorometric and microscopic methods.  Fungal contamination was measured in newly installed ducts in addition to pre and post-remediation.
