Spot Checks for Mould

 Is this the right test for your situation?

Not all mould problems are visible or evident, mould is often hidden, which can create a number of problems for the occupants and property owners.
If there is a distinctive odour or the occupants are having health issues but there is no visible mould, then a full mould inspection may be needed to find the source of the problem ( the fungal reservoirs).

If there is mould in more than one area, then there could be a systemic problem in the building and a full mould inspection and investigation may be required to ascertain the extent of the problem.

However, if the mould is visible and limited to an area where the cause of the problem has already been remedied, then you may only require that a spot check be done to verify that it is mould or that mould is still evident in that area. A moisture survey should also be done on the area.

Eco-Impact and Mould Experts offer customized inspections for your specific mould problem. We base our recommendation on the nature of the complaint and the requirements of the customer.

  • Spot checks of specific complaint areas + a moisture survey
  • Air samples to verify if previous remediations have been successful
  • Full environmental assessments for real estate transaction or on property’s where there is an unknown history
  • Grow Op clearances – full mould inspection is required for clearances

If the occupants have health issues or complaints – then a full mould inspection would be recommended, as if there is more than one area of mould contamination, then all of the areas would have to be addressed before the associated health issues could be expected to dissipate.
