Quick Mold Test

The Quick Mold Test is a “fast and simple method to accurately determine the presence of mold spores and allergen contaminants on surfaces.” The color-change reaction from green to purple provides a semi-quantifiable result, and allows users to assess the level of biological contamination of surfaces. The results are easily obtained, interpreted and allow for quick decisions and corrective actions to be implemented. For more go to Quick Mold Test.

The Bear Cave

Each Bear Cave is constructed of 15 feet of high-grade vinyl reinforced with 10 primed and painted steel bars, resulting in a lightweight, rigid yet flexible structure that can be daisy-chained with additional units for extended drying coverage.
