We’ll conduct a comprehensive moisture survey of your property that will also include thermography as well as a visual inspection. This is to identify any defects which could lead to an increase of moisture levels in your property, resulting in the subsequent outbreak of abnormal microbial growth.
Mould spores are a natural part of our environment, however after water damage mould spores increase at a rapid rate. A high spore count can identify structural damage, water leaks and condensation, which are often not visible to the naked eye. It is a vital part of our process in mould remediation to check the mould spore count to identify any underlying damage.
We use the Zefon Bio-Pump Plus Air Sampler, this lightweight technology is fast and accurate, allowing us to take up to 100 samples which can immediately be sent off to our laboratory for analysis. It also enables us to easily take a sample upon completion of our remediation work to give you the peace of mind the work has been carried out correctly.
There are various requirements for mould to grow; here are some examples:
– Organic food source
– Stagnant Air
If you have noticed mould on the surfaces of walls, ceiling or perhaps even your contents than the cause need investigating and rectify as fungi especially moulds produce potentially harmful substances called mycotoxins to protect against other microorganisms. Mycotoxins create a variety of allergic responses or sickness in humans.
Some people are more sensitive to mould than others, including:
– Babies and children
– Elderly people
– Those with existing skin problems, such as eczema
– Those with respiratory problems, such as allergies and asthma
– Those with a weakened immune system, such as those having chemotherapy
Microbial organisms exist everywhere in nature, both indoor and outdoor. However, in a “normal” indoor environment, fungal growth should not be visible to the naked eye.
The main driver which allows moulds to develop and flourish in and on the materials within an indoor environment is moisture or, to be precise, water activity.
Materials can become damp in several ways, directly being wetted, moisture penetrating materials through capillary action, physical contact and hygroscopic materials absorbing moisture directly from the atmosphere.
Understanding what caused the outbreak of microbial growth is vital as this will allow us to produce an effective mould remediation solution as well as recommendations to prevent mould growth from reoccurring after the treatment is complete.
