Mould is a type of fungi and is virtually present nearly everywhere in the world. However, not all mould species are the same and with the right conditions, harmful species that produce mycotoxins can easily develop.

…It really doesn’t take much, as with a little bit of nutrients, for example dust, and moisture, from humid climates or water events, can quickly germinate hundreds if not thousands of spores that will further develop and engulf all nearby materials. Mould spores can also become airborne and/or release mVOC’s (microbial volatile organic compounds) which if exposed to, can be harmful to human health, particularly those with pre-existing respiratory related health conditions and those that are immune compromised. Mould is known to cause symptoms like breathing difficulties, nasal congestion, sneezing, coughing and respiratory tract infections just to name a few.

It’s part of our purpose. Our purpose is to improve health and wellbeing in the workplace and the home.  Businesses have a duty of care under current legislation to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, that their staff and other stakeholders are not exposed to any health and safety risks that may arise from what they do. Everyone deserves to go to work and return to their families safely in a happy and healthy home.

By utilizing a combination of science, technology, and innovation to collect data and samples in order to assess HVAC systems, the moisture of materials, possible water ingress sources and surface and airborne mould ecology via analysis in accredited laboratories. This is conducted on the initial investigation and again following remediation to ensure all mould contamination has been adequately treated and removed.

The outcome is identifying and possibly reducing the long-term damage from mould and moisture issues and/or offering recommendations in order to remediate buildings and homes. Also verifying that they are remediated to a safe standard. This ultimately allows people to be in a safe workplace and return to a healthy home.
