MoldRANGE™ California Climate

We've improved the MoldRANGE™ report for California!

As you may know, MoldRANGE™ is EMLab P&K's industry-leading report that provides typical outdoor spore levels by region and time of year, based on data from 350,000+ spore trap samples. The original MoldRANGE™ report provided data from the entire state. However, California has multiple climates from warm temperate areas to arid desert areas (see map below). As a result, each climate in California has its own unique range of outdoor mold spores. Now the MoldRANGE™ California Climate report gives you better insights for the zip code where you sampled.

California Climate Map

The new report was developed using the Köppen-Geiger climate classifications, one of the most widely used system for classifying the world's climates.

What Will The New Report Look Like?

Based on your project's zip code, your MoldRANGE™ reference data will be more precise and useful. Here's an example of what your report will include:

What Do The Codes Mean?

Below are the codes with descriptions for California's climates based on the Köppen Climate Classification System.

How Is The New Report Similar To The Original?

Like the original MoldRANGE™, MoldRANGE™ California Climate helps you:

  • Avoid additional remediation when it's not needed
  • Calm clients who panic over what they think are high quantities of mold spores
  • Interpret data when you have to take outdoor samples in bad weather or with snow cover

How Can I Receive The New Report for My Projects?

When you take mold samples in California, simply include the zip code for your projects, and you will automatically receive the new MoldRANGE™ California Climate report. Without your project's zip code, you will receive the original MoldRANGE™ report. If you do not want to receive this new report, contact your EMLab P&K Project Manager.

We hope you will find the new "MoldRANGE™ California Climate" report useful. You can learn more about MoldRANGE™ by watching this video by Dr. Harriet Burge.
