Standard Practice for Collection of Dislodgeable Pesticide Residues from Floors
|Publication Date:||1 May 2010|
This practice covers a procedure for collection of dislodgeable pesticide residues from indoor floor surfaces.
This practice and the sampling methodology described are applicable to bare floors or covered floor surfaces, for example, carpeting and vinyl flooring.
This practice and the sampling methodology described are applicable to all pesticides listed in Practice D4861 whether applied directly to the floor surface or transported there by migration within the room or tracked in from outdoors.
Floor surfaces for which this practice has been successfully applied include nylon plush carpeting, polypropylene level-loop carpeting, and vinyl flooring.
Sample analysis will be dependent upon the nature of the pesticides targeted and is beyond the scope of this practice; however, the analytical procedures discussed in Practice D4861 are applicable to this practice.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to its use.
