EMLab P&K Further Expands Climate-Based Mold Lab Report Across MidWest and West Regions of United States

San Bruno, CA, June 8, 2015 – EMLab P&K, a TestAmerica company and the leading commercial indoor air quality (IAQ) laboratory in North America, announces the continued expansion of the MoldRANGE™ Local Climate report for clients in the Upper Midwest, Northern Rockies, Southwest, and Northwest regions. With this expansion of Regional reports, EMLab P&K makes the patent-pending, zip code-based MoldRANGE™ Local Climate report available across most of the contiguous United States. The Regional reports are based on regions of the United States rather than specific states. The mold laboratory report provides additional insights for outdoor mold spore levels where the mold sampling took place. To receive the new report, clients must include the location's zip code and an outside mold sample with their projects.

EMLab P&K is the only mold testing laboratory that offers scientifically developed tools like the MoldRANGE™ Local Climate report to help IAQ professionals with their mold investigations. The report is now available for EMLab P&K's clients who perform mold sampling in the Upper Midwest, Northern Rockies, Southwest, and Northwest regions. The regions are based on National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) climate regions where contiguous states share similar climate characteristics. EMLab P&K also offers state-specific reports for nine states including: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, and Washington.

"We are excited to complete our expansion of Regional reports to clients in the MidWest, Southwest and West regions of the United States, said Dave Gallup, EMLab P&K's General Manager and Co-Founder. "EMLab P&K continues to share our knowledge and resources through unrivaled, scientifically developed tools like MoldRANGE™ Local Climate report. We lead the IAQ industry with innovative solutions and superior client service."

The MoldRANGE™ Local Climate report was developed by a team of experienced scientists and top IT experts, using the 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. Now EMLab P&K's clients across Eastern and Southern regions of the United States can benefit from additional insights based on the zip code of their outdoor mold samples.
