There are many ways for buildings to become water damaged, and therefore becoming hosts for biotoxins. While there are many obvious causes of water damage, there are many that are not so visually obvious including poor ventilation, condensation, high humidity levels and inappropriate building material choices. It does not take long for microbial growth to occur and the risk of mould contamination to escalate after a building is exposed to unresolved moisture.
When remediating homes and buildings where occupants are suffering from diagnosed mould illness, there is a much greater focus on small particle cleaning. Common industry practices are generally based on methods shown to be effective for whole spore remediation but not for particles that are much smaller and float in the air for long periods of time. It is important to note that all surfaces collect and hold dust containing toxins, antigens, inflammagens, and other micro contaminants.
An effective remediation plan starts with a thorough investigation which must detect all water intrusions, leaks and condensation problems. The remediation work must correct all moisture and water issues and include remediation of all water damaged building materials and will include maintenance procedures to sustain high quality indoor air over the long term. Maintenance procedures will involve frequent and intensive monitoring of water damage risks and additional pro active measures such as optimising air filtration and ventilation of the building.
Our mould remediation plans for sensitised individuals conform to the Consensus Statement of Indoor Environmental Professionals, whose methods have been developed over many years working with sensitised patients. We are able to work with remediation plans provided by your IEP or speak to us about your remediation requirements for your home or building today. Call Now on 1800 664 602
