Mould causes various health effects like eye, nose and throat irritation/inflammation, nasal congestion, sneezing, sinusitis, asthma, headaches, coughing, chronic fatigue, Candida, rashes and various skin conditions. If the mould problem is not rectified the health problems will escalate and have the potential to cause long term health effects.
Breathing in toxic mould spores can seriously compromise the body's immune system. This is particularly the case of those with chronic illnesses, the elderly, infants and those with existing respiratory ailments such as asthma.
Simply removing mould does not solve the problem as it will always return unless the source of the problem is discovered and rectified. Specialised equipment is required to measure the amount of moisture in the building material and thereby trace the path and source of the moisture.
The MOULD AUDIT involves:
A qualified Building Biologist will visit your site at a time that suits you best.
A digital Protimeter will be used to measure moisture content in the building materials of the structure and every effort will be made to identify the root cause of the mould growth.
Results will be explained and various recommendations will be provided.
Air and surface mould sampling can also be done if required and certified lab reports detailing the species and concentration of mould can be provided ($150 per sample)
If remediation / mould removal is necessary then this service can also be provided.
If required a formal written report detailing the problem areas and recommendations will be provided.
The Mould Audit will take 2-3 hours, depending on the property. Payment is required prior to commencement of the audit. A summary of the audit and recommendations will be emailed to you. Should you require a formal report please inform us prior to the audit as this will incur additional costs.
