We're based in Melbourne but can service BOTH Melbourne and Sydney for on-site mould and water damage assessments.

and

Our job is to help you with high-quality evidence. 

It's always a concern when there is any damage (or suspect damage or contamination of any kind) to your home or office, especially from any of the following 9 causes, but if you suspect there's a problem, you should be pro-active with getting it tested.

We do the following types of inspections:

  • Independent non-intrusive pre-remediation assessments

  • Independent post-remediation verification (PRV) assessments

  • Independent intrusive pre-remediation assessments

  • Interim assessments

  • Contents assessments

  • Air quality assessments

  • Tenancy inspections 
  • Hygiene and/or environmental cleaning assessments

  • RNA environmental screening for e.g. SARS-CoV-2
  • eDNA screening for other pathogens

Here are some of the 9 typical reasons why a building might take on unwanted moisture or show mould or become contaminated from other bacterial, fungal or viral sources: 

  • Rainwater entry

  • Capillary action or water across cladding or through weep holes

  • Vapour transport across walls, floors or ceilings due to insulation problems

  • Diffusion factors like rising damp or lateral transfer into below-ground rooms

  • Standing water conditions

  • Indoor surface condensation effects

  • Ventilation problems leading to elevated indoor humidity

  • Suspect or known building defects

  • Aerosol or surface fomite contamination from unwanted contact with infected materials or hosts having bacterial, fungal, yeast or viral infections that can be shed into the local environment and pose a cross-contamination risk. 

If any of the above factors have or might have compromised your building, then get it tested.

We can help with high-quality scientific reports enabling you to confidently make decisions about the next steps that could be required to secure the health and safety of your building. 

And of course, all our work conforms to the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System.

As well, our lab work has been assessed and complies with the requirements of ISO 17025:2017, General Requirements for the Competence of Testing Laboratories While demonstrating Technical Competence in the Field of Testing Laboratories. 

Our labs have also been assessed and meet the requirements of ISO 15189:2012 for Medical laboratories.
