Air Sampling HARI 5/3/12 3:48 AM
Dear Group members
       What is the best method that can be used for air sampling for detecting fungal contamination? Some labs are using plate technique and some others are employing machines which sucks the air inside. Are there standards available for  molds to review the results obtained after air sampling? If yes from where can i obtain those?
 
With Best Regards

Is that a significant risk or a quality issue?

Only wanted to ensure whether the air quality is proper but there were no standards available.There were different methods to analyse and wanted to know which one is best.

Bobby,
            Currently what we are doing is 
1.Ensuring that the flour accumulation is prevented through proper cleaning procedures 
2. Proper maintenance of the air conditioning and mechanical ventilation of the premises ie,
        cleaning the components at least once in six months, cleaning or replacing filters whenever necessary, checking the ducts for dust, algae or fungal buildup, ensuring a positive air pressure etc
             Just wanted to ensure that we are following proper procedures assuming that the out door air quality is good. I am confident that the air samples wo'nt be bad after following all these procedures. Which one is the better method to check and are there any standards???
 
With Best Regards
Harish

Hari,
 
What measures do you have in place to ensure that the air quality is good?
 
Do you have a ventilation system that can be controlled?
 
I am just curios to know what your approach would be when the air samples are bad

Hari,

 

How about humidity (moisture content), especially in the post cooking area and the finished goods area?

 

Are you able to control that well?

 

Mold growth is always linked to moisture in the air and surfaces and the availability of nutrients.

Dear group
We are specialists in mold remediation pls call or email me if we can be of assistance
We are also one of dubai's largest kitchen exhaust cleaning companies cleaning 700 kitchens a year

Clean the kitchen exhausts regularly. Notwithstanding the fire risks. If not the hvac system will soon start drawing in greasy air (we have many examples of this). The hvac ducts, fcu's and filters soon get clogged and underperformance will just accelerate the problems in the kitchen. Poor hvac performance , poor ventilation etc will result in mold growth

Also worth noting that the plenums ( the area above the kitchen ceiling) are often full of grease, especially if the plenum acts asan open return or recirculation collection. Again, apart from the fire risk it also attracts the pests. And holds the odours in the kitchen

If the kitchen exhaust and hvac are performing properly you will reduce the risk of poor indoor air quality.

Good Day Hari.
 
We are currently using 3M Petrifilm for our micro testing needs and since yeast and molds are among the commonest of the fungi kingdom, I suggest using these plates for your verification activities.
 
Attached is an air sampling guide from 3M for your reference.
 
Hope this could be of assistance.
 
Thankls and regards,
