Mould and Damp
Our expert technicians will perform a series of diagnostic tests to determine whether your building poses a potential health hazard due to mould. The mould inspection involves detailed inspection of the building and its surroundings, history of water penetration or flooding, consultation with occupants, making non-intrusive surface measurements and gathering surface samples and monitoring your indoor air quality.
You will benefit from:
- High quality service provided by qualified and experienced surveyors
- Survey, sampling and analysis carried out to International Standards (ISO)
- Moulds and Bacteria sampling in every habitable room of the property
- Accurate root cause identification
- Damp survey of the property
- Thermographic survey of the property
- Employees, Visitors and Occupants health risk evaluation (WHO, COSHH)
- Accurate, reliable, and defendable data
Our team will provide you with reliable information about the indoor air quality in your building, the magnitude of air contamination by airborne moulds, clearly identified root causes of the problem and suggest most appropriate remedial measures. Although we may assist you with the treatment of the existing contamination our company does not engage in building work, damp proofing or other major remedial works which may be required. This approach allows us to remain independent and impartial and represent your interest in dealing with relevant authorities should the need arise.
In our report, we will clearly state if the property is deemed habitable or not. Our assessment is based on the guidance published in the Housing Act 2004: Housing, Health & Safety Rating System. We will also provide with information regarding identified moulds species which is important information used by medical practitioners when dealing with mould exposure cases.
We are confident that our company is the perfect solution for your building assessment needs. If you would like to review our reporting documentation and see examples of our recent projects, please contact us here.
Our laboratory specialises in enumeration and identification of mould from non-culturable spore trap samples. We perform analysis of the samples of purposes of clearance verification following remediation projects or for the purposes of indoor air quality investigation.
We provide analysis of the samples to fungal genus or group level including enumeration of individual fungal categories express and number of spores per cubic meter of air. The analysis included general assessment of the background debris and comments of high concentration of unusual organic or inorganic particles (epithelial cells, respirable fibres etc.)
We can perform analysis from commercially available samplers such as:
- Versa Trap
Out laboratory performs analysis in strict accordance with International ISO 16000-20 Indoor air, Part 20: Detection and enumeration of moulds – Detection of total spore count or D7391-09 Standard Test Method for Categorization and Quantification of Airborne Fungal Structures in an Inertial Impaction Sample by Optical Microscopy.
