Is There a Air Quaility Mold Sensor

hi I new to this stuff
don't have a Arduino been looking on amazon soo many kits etc

but I have a few ideas but I wanted to know if its possible

my 1 idea for this email is

I have mold in my basement

and I wanted to know if Arduino had a sensor that can read Mold in the air and give a read out.. Parts per million or so as I seen some testers and they over a grand but wanted to know

and is there a sensor to test for Radion in the basement too?

I’ve no idea, but I’d google what you want first and take it from there .

I just google “radon sensor”; there was even a hit with “Arduino”.

ya I had already done google searchs for radon sensor Arduino and mold ppm sensor Arduino etc
but it didn't help there isn't much just people talking about stuff that might work but nothing conclusive

so I figured maybe someone in here has done it
for Mold Telling you the ppm in the air pr whatever it does and a radon one..

if anyone built either or of them.. but ill keep googling too

To begin, mold is a fungus. Fungus propagate by releasing spoors. They are like dust in the air and that is what you smell and what you must test for. Determining the difference between dust particles in the air and mold spores is done with a microscope.

There are no PPM for dust. There are micrograms per cubic meter and other similar measures of dust quantity per volume of air. Then there are measurements of various ranges of sizes of dust particles that are measured. I have no idea of the sizes of your mold spores, so you will have to research that.

Basically, look for Arduino dust sensor, or similar searches.

ah ok
and I have no idea
I just watch the home renov videos on tv

they get a mold specialist they come in with a meter read the whatever and then they say you cant breath this air you need mask's and scrub the walls with bleach etc

so I have no idea

they just say more then say 100 is bad and some houses had like 3000 reading

but ok ill look that up thanks

U'll find a sensor which can detect different particle sizes. Mold spores range 1-100 microns.
ebay detectors
No sensor can tell what kind of 'dust' i detects.

They will be reading relative humidity - if its too high mold will form

ah ok thanks for the inputs figure it was simple lol

and how do you get notifications to work I book marked my topic and checked to see your replies but I get no email notifications

At the bottom of the last post are boxes for "reply", "mark unread", "print", and "receive emails". Click the last one and see if that helps.

ok I set it now hopefully it works thank you
