“Should I throw away my pillow, my child’s toys – what about my bed?”
Are you worried about mould contamination of your personal contents? Do I keep it? Do I throw it away? How should I clean it?
If you are preparing a list of damages for VCAT or to seek redress from your Insurer or just for your own peace of mind – we can help!
Our “Infection Control Contents Testing Reports” index a sample selection of your personal property including: clothing, bedding, furniture, white goods, books, personal effects and other precious items. We use a combination of swab testing, tape-lift, air-o-cell and microbiological sampling to Petri plates to measure invisible and/or visible contamination to present you with an unbiased inventory of your home contents. Our report is then useful in your own decision making regarding what to keep or what to discard. In addition, our reports highlight how best to decontaminate your belongings if required.
For example, did you know that people spend approximately 1/3 of their lives sleeping. This means that if your mattress or bedding has become contaminated with mould, bacteria, spores or mycotoxins, then you are potentially being exposed to elevated levels of biological agents and chemical pollutants. What about your clothing?
Call us today on 1300 13 23 50 or email to arrange a rapid, cost effective on-site inspection so you can claim legitimate damages where applicable.
Read some of the recent academic literature to validate your suspicion, that mould contamination of your personal property could be a risk to your health.
