How Can I tell if I have a Mould Problem

 

  •  Visual Inspection
    A visual inspection for mould growth should in done in any area where “potential” contamination is possible (i.e. where water and a food source are present) such as on ceiling tiles, behind wallpaper, behind drywall, underneath carpets , in HVAC systems and on pipe insulation. The mould may be any colour: black, white, red, orange, yellow or violet. Dab a drop of household bleach onto a suspected spot. If the stain loses its colour or disappears, it may be mould.
  •  Smell/Odour
    Sometimes moulds are hidden and cannot be seen. A musty or earthy smell often indicates the presence of moulds. However, a smell may not be present for all moulds.
  •  Sampling
    There are three forms of sampling commonly used in mould investigations; bulk, surface and air.

Bulk samples are collected from visibly moulded surfaces by scraping or cutting materials with a clean tool and collected in clean plastic bag.

Surface samples are collected by wiping a measured area with a sterile swap or stripping the suspect surface with clear tape. In both cases, the samples are normally diluted and a specific volume (aliquot) is distributed over a sterile growth media. After a suitable growth period the colonies are identified and counted. The results are reported in colony forming units (CFU) and percentages of each organism type present. The results can also be expressed in terms of CFU per gram of material or CFU per square centimeter of area sampled.

At Power Environmental Management, we take the time to discuss your issues in detail. We can begin the process with a phone consultation or stop by your property and provide a free estimate. Our experienced team uses state-of-the-art tools, solutions, and techniques to resolve your problems.
