Water damage is a very common cause of mould and can lead to unwanted odours, illness and poor indoor air quality. We use state-of-the-art techniques to measure, locate and identify and then determine how your building may be compromised. A combination of occupational hygiene, environmental health, aerobiology, microbiology, mycology and thermal imaging are used to zero-in on the problems to help you make evidence-based decisions

Biological contaminants like moulds, mildews and bacterial pathogens can be sanitized, disinfected and removed using a range of air scrubbing, physical source removal and bio-decontamination treatment methods matched to your home or facility based on the assessment results. We aim to use green-friendly methods wherever possible for your safety and peace of mind

From the initial inspection to determine the extent of the problem or following treatment/remediation, we thoroughly test your interior using standard microbiological & indoor air quality methods to ensure building safety. Only then do we issue a Compliance Certificate based on BOTH spore trap and viable testing methods. All works are fully documented into formal written reports that are based on International Standards and Industry Guidelines. We also offer Post Remediation Verification Testing (PRV) and can re-test your home, office or facility after Insurance works or works by other contractors to check that the job was done properly and has successfully removed the biological contaminants as expected

Three Steps to a Safer Indoor Environment!

If you’re worried about your indoor air quality and the potential risks from unexpected water and mould growth, then we can help you get fast answers.

We deliver a straightforward, scientifically rigorous and economical inspection strategy to inspect and assess your home, leased dwelling or office/factory/building to find, assess, identify and measure the right information for accurate results. Our comprehensive written reports allow you to make sensible decisions regarding your property.

Viable Mould Testing, Non-Viable Spore Trap Testing, Bio-Tape Lifts, Clearance Testing, Preliminary Inspections, Scope of Works…We Do It All    

We can also prepare scope of works for treatment & cleaning or ‘make-safe works’ for even the most challenging biological contaminants within the built environment.  As a proudly Independent Lab, we report only on the facts, so you can rest assured that our findings are transparent and detail your situational environment as precisely as possible.  Analytical and service support for Real Estate/Property, Insurance and Litigation/Expert Evidence is our speciality.

We are the Australian leaders in biological contaminant assessment following known and unknown water damage and flood events, air quality inspections, mould detection and analytical grade lab findings, infra red thermal imaging, scope of works development, treatment/disinfection/cleaning, post remediation verification, R&D and general infection control of building or workplace interiors that may be infected or affected by:

  • fungi & toxic moulds and mildews
  • bacteria
  • yeasts (Candida sp.)
  • mites
  • virus pathogens
  • PM2.5 and PM10 particle number concentration assessment
  • white-rot & brown-rot fungi affected sub-floors and timbers
  • clandestine drug laboratory remediation including ice lab cleanups
  • advice on crime and trauma decontamination and cleaning
  • hidden pathogens that may affect workplace hygiene and design and implementation of methods to improve infection control
  • complete biobanking of reference strains for research and development
Accredited by The Australian Government Biosecurity through DAFF Biosecurity to work in Quarantine Approved Premises for Accredited Persons (Classes 2 to 9).  The preferred choice of leading Real Estate agencies, Insurers and businesses that have a duty of care under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 and for Infection Control In Office Practice Settings.  All our work follows the Australian Mould Guideline (2010 and 2016 revisions) or International Standards as set forth by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification and we follow the contemporary literature to ensure we always provide up-to-date Industry best practice using for example:
  • Australian Mould Guideline. 2nd Ed, 2010.
  • ANSI/IICRC S500 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration, 4th Edition, 2015.
  • ANSI/IICRC S520 Standard for Professional Mold Remediation, 3rd Edition, 2015.
  • ANSII/IICRC R520 Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation, 3rd Edition, 2015.

Our Business is all about how the buildings we choose to inhabit impact on our health and wellbeing

Visible Mould and Odour Is Related to Childhood Asthma

Asthma is a very common chronic respiratory disease that narrows the airways and causes breathing difficulty. A good deal of research evidence is increasing in the literature linking indoor dampness and mould with the development of asthma. Although many of the underlying mechanisms remain unknown, countries such as Australia and New Zealand have high rates […]


Why Indoor Air Quality Matters To Your Health – Part I

Introduction to the WHO report on environmental health risks Environmental risks to global health are well known. According to a WHO report, Preventing Disease Through Healthy Environments, 23% of deaths in 2012 had an environmental cause.  Air pollution ranks as the world’s largest environmental health risk causing 7 million deaths per year. Socioeconomic factors have […]
