As long as the swabs are allowed to dry, they should be stable for a long period of time. There is no guarantee that they will yield a viable sample, however there is also no technical expiration date on the sample. If the samples are sealed and not allowed to dry, mold will more than likely continue to grow on the swabs and destroy the sample.
