EMLab P&K Launches MoldRANGE™ Local Climate Report for Mold Testing in Florida and Arizona

San Bruno, CA, February 2, 2015 – EMLab P&K, a TestAmerica company and the leading commercial indoor air quality (IAQ) laboratory in North America, announced the launch of the MoldRANGE™ Local Climate report. The new report is free for EMLab P&K clients and provides better insights for outdoor mold spore levels in Florida and Arizona based on the zip code where the mold testing took place. EMLab P&K is the only mold laboratory that offers a scientifically developed tool to help IAQ professionals with their mold investigations. The MoldRANGE™ Local Climate report will be available for additional U.S. states in coming months.

"We are excited to further advance MoldRANGE™ through our patent-pending, zip code-based MoldRANGE™ Local Climate report," said Dave Gallup, EMLab P&K's General Manager and Co-Founder. "This new report helps clients in Florida and Arizona save time and money and make more informed decisions based on seasonal, climate, and geographical outdoor spore data. EMLab P&K clients know they work with the IAQ industry leader who is committed to providing superior client service and innovative solutions."

Previously, the MoldRANGE™ report provided data from an entire state. However, the climate and outside spore distribution across even a single state may vary depending on location. As a result, different zip codes in the same state can have their own unique range of outdoor mold spores. Now MoldRANGE™ Local Climate provides improved data from the specific zip code where the mold sample was taken. The new report is now available for EMLab P&K's clients who perform mold testing in Florida and Arizona.

The MoldRANGE™ Local Climate report was developed by a team of experienced scientists and top IT experts, using the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) database of weather and geography combined with EMLab P&K's proprietary database of outdoor spore trap samples with known zip codes. Local climate variables from NOAA include: Annual High Temperature, Elevation, Rainfall/Precipitation, and Monthly Temperature Range. MoldRANGE™ reference data for EMLab P&K's clients in Florida and Arizona will be more precise and useful by utilizing the zip code of the mold sample.
