A comprehensive investigation includes a complete visual analysis of the premises, moisture testing with a digital moisture meter, leak detection and sample collection for laboratory analysis. Our sampling includes Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) samples and surface samples in our basic mold inspection package.
Remediation is the process of removing the fungal contaminated building materials from the project site. The preparations to the affected areas normally involve the isolation of the space from the remainder of the building in order to prevent the cross-contamination of unaffected areas. Following this, special pre-written protocols are followed to properly treat or remove the contaminated areas using special tools, chemicals and equipment.
The method of choice for assessing potential exposures to airborne molds and mycotoxins in indoor environments involves the collection and identification of fungal propagules through source sampling, which includes methods such as swab, tape, bulk, and dust and air sampling. These are commonly used by IES to identify indoor fungi.
