Mould surveys

We provide a comprehensive building mould survey & consultation service using the latest in diagnostic technology and investigative methods. We conduct a non-destructive investigation of your property in order to identify all sources of water penetration and condensation in the building. Our mould inspection, mould testing and sampling protocols are based on established investigation methodologies, government issued guidance documents and international ISO and ASTM standards.

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 surrounding, 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 or air contamination by air borne 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.
