PRO-LAB Allergen Test Kit is a MUST HAVE for students moving into dorm rooms this fall. Many dorm rooms are cleaned inadequately (if at all) between occupants, leaving them at high risk for containing mold and other allergens that could be detrimental to a student’s classroom performance, not to mention their health. Because of the nature of college students and their cleaning habits, seemingly harmless bad habits like leaving damp laundry on the carpet or poorly addressing spilled liquids can lead to health risk for future inhabitants that would be invisible until the allergy symptoms began to surface.
A quick and simple step every parent can take to identify this threat is to utilize an allergen test kit in their child’s new room to determine whether a change should be requested, or if a professional cleaning is in order.
