Mould testing is important because it can help identify the presence of mould in your workplace and determine the level of contamination. Mould can cause a wide range of health problems, including respiratory problems, skin irritation, and possibly neurological problems. If you suspect that you have a mould problem in your building, it’s important to have the property tested by a certified professional – to determine the extent of the contamination and take appropriate action to address the problem. Whether you’re disturbing walls with mold or in need of asbestos testing, we’re here to detect hazards before they cause you problems.
The impact mould can have on your health depends on so many factors, but it’s known to trigger allergies and develop into infections.
Because mould is a health hazard, anyone responsible for a building’s influence on workers or tenants knows the need for regulatory compliance, especially with regards to occupational health and safety.
Happy and healthy workers are worth more than the cost of mould removal; we’re proactive in our search for mould to preserve the wellness of your building or project’s stakeholders.
The frequency of mould testing really depends on your environment and on your building’s susceptibility to mould. If you’re managing space for sensitive populations, as with nursing homes or childcare centers, then you should test more often and more thoroughly than if you’re in a low-risk environment. All mould needs is some humidity and time for spores to take root in habitable building materials like drywall or plywood. Call us for a visual inspection or air sampling, and we can advise from there.
Visible water damage is a haven for new mould growth. If you leave water damage behind, spores can travel through the air and contaminate wetter areas.
When mould takes root in a person’s lungs, their health can take a turn for the worst. Prevention or in-time mitigation will keep your space safe for workers beforehand.
Strong odours akin to mildew shouldn’t be ignored, as they’re a sure sign that mould growth has gone unchecked – whether it’s visible or not. But we’re here to help locate the sources within walls and ceilings.
As champions of systematic mould removal, we first identify the source of the mould. Once the source is identified, it is crucial to contain the area to prevent further spread. We’ll design action to deal with porous or non-porous surfaces by cleaning with effective cleaning solutions and ensure moisture sources are dealt with upon a complete cleaning. ASE Services also designs removal around indispensable equipment like HEPA vacuums for thorough abatement.
Your mould mitigation project needs to be effective and efficient to get your space habitable sooner rather than later. Our expertise in the area gives you a solid plan that works quickly.
Mould removal demands a certain level of knowledge for identification, locating hotspots and moisture leaks, effective action plans and further prevention efforts. Our company’s expertise in mould removal is recognized across western Canada, where we’re ready to help systematically by getting your building ready for significant usage by all stakeholders.
Mould spores are everywhere, and they are a part of the natural environment. Outdoors, moulds play a role in breaking down organic matter such as leaves and dead trees. Indoors, moulds can be found in every nook and cranny- on ceilings, walls, floors, furniture, clothing- and they thrive in warm and moist environments. They’re small enough to catch air drafts so they can travel far and wide. The issue for indoor spaces is that they can trap these spores long enough for them to take root and impact air quality.
Moulds produce allergens that can cause allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to them. In addition, moulds can produce mycotoxins which are poisonous substances that can cause serious health problems in people exposed to them over time. That’s why it’s important to have your workplace tested for mould if you suspect you might have a problem.
To gain mould awareness and detection skills, your staff members need to receive the appropriate training. We provide mould awareness certification and awareness training that is government-approved and certified. Get your reservation in now!
