Abstract

Airborne microbe has been detected to been one of major contaminant that lead to poor indoor air quality. This study intended to investigate the level of fungal contaminant in the library center of main campus of Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM). The fungal contaminant is determined by using sedimentation method with the use of Malt Extract AGAR (MEA). The total mean of concentration of fungal for the whole library building is 324 CFU/m³. The fungal concentration also determined in each level where ground floor has concentration of 131 CFU/m³,first floor with 695 CFU/m³ and second floor with 79 CFU/m³. These findings indicates that the library center do have some significant background level of fungal contaminant. The building owner should be aware to their building maintenance status to protect the occupant from safety and health problem.
