If you think you might have a problem with water damage or the indoor hygiene or indoor air quality you probably do!
We're based in Melbourne but can service BOTH Melbourne and Sydney for on-site mould and water damage assessments.
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
Air quality assessments
Hygiene and/or environmental cleaning assessments
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:
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.
