Mould Inspections

It is crucial to find a qualified and fully licensed professional to conduct a comprehensive assessment of your property. Our team are fully qualified and hold the following: * ​Unit of Competency: (NAT10913005) Conduct an assessment of a water-damaged home.  This is the only government accredited training in Australia to certify mould assessors. * ANSI/IICRC S500: Standard for Professional Water Damage Restoration * ANSI/IICRC S520: Standard For Professional Mould Remediation * Australian Cleaning and Restoration Academy in Certified Water Damage & Mould Remediation * Australian Cleaning and Restoration Academy in Certified Workplace Health & Safety in Cleaning and Restoration​ XsporWA are also members of the Australian Restoration Industry Association and the Australian Indoor Air Quality Association, ensuring that we are always at the forefront of the latest developments and knowledge within our industry.   Our team is dedicated to providing thorough and accurate mould inspections for homes and businesses. We understand the importance of determining the cause of mould in a property in order to provide a comprehensive remediation plan to prevent recurring mould problems. Exposure to mould can result in a range of symptoms and health effects, including headaches, respiratory infections, skin irritations, fatigue, asthma aggravation, behavioral changes, and depression. These can have a significant impact on the health and productivity of occupants. Therefore, it is vital to investigate and identify suspected mould in the indoor environment. Our detailed inspection process includes a thorough visual inspection, moisture testing, thermal imaging inspections, and air and surface testing. We consider contributing air quality factors such as condensation and humidity, as well as any underlying issues like water leaks, stormwater damage, and drainage problems. We use state-of-the-art equipment, such as FLIR thermal infrared cameras, digital moisture meters, and borescope cameras to view behind walls and in between cavities. Our trained technicians are well-equipped to identify and evaluate mould growth and moisture issues in your property. Our inspections and assessments are available at competitive rates. These reports include site analysis, moisture mapping, recommendations, and advice on the cause of mould growth. We understand that finding the cause of moisture problems can be challenging, as mould can grow in hard-to-reach locations such as wall cavities, under carpet linings, inside ceilings, and even in air conditioning systems. Therefore, it is essential to find and fix the source of the water or moisture before it becomes a potentially deadly problem. Our reports provide all the background information related to the investigation, along with any relevant history of mould and dampness in the building. Additionally, we include recommendations for the treatment of the mould problem, along with photographs related to the inspection process. As a qualified mould testing technician, it is our job to assist customers in identifying sources of moisture, determining the severity of mould contamination, and ultimately providing a professional opinion to mitigate condensation and mould issues in the property. We understand the impact that mould can have on indoor air quality and take pride in our commitment to providing accurate and reliable results. Our meticulous mould inspection process begins with a thorough assessment of your property using a comprehensive checklist to ensure no detail is overlooked. By identifying the extent of mould formation and assessing indoor air quality, we can pinpoint the underlying causes and develop effective remedial measures to prevent future recurrence. Our team of experienced mould inspectors brings years of industry training to every inspection, possessing the expertise and knowledge needed to identify the root causes of poor indoor air quality and mould infestations. With their skills, you can trust that we’ll provide you with the most accurate assessment of your mould problem. In summary, when it comes to mould inspections, it is essential to find a qualified and experienced professional who can provide thorough and accurate assessments of your property. Our team is committed to ensuring you receive the highest quality of service, with detailed reports and valuable insights into the mould issue. We understand the impact that mould can have on health, productivity, and the structural integrity of buildings, and we are dedicated to helping you address and prevent mould problems in your property. During a comprehensive mold inspection, specialized equipment and techniques that are typically used include: 1. Moisture meters: Used to measure moisture levels in building materials, which can indicate the presence of mold-friendly conditions. 2. Infrared cameras: Used to identify areas of moisture and potential mold growth by detecting temperature differences in building materials. 3. Borescope: A small camera that can be inserted into tight spaces to inspect for hidden mold growth. 4. Particle counters: Used to measure the concentration of airborne mold spores in the indoor environment. 5. Swab and tape samples: Used to collect surface samples of suspected mold growth for lab analysis. 6. Air sampling pumps: Used to collect air samples for lab analysis to determine the presence and concentration of mold spores. 7. Visual inspection: A comprehensive visual inspection of the property to identify areas of water damage, condensation, and potential mold growth. 8. Thermal imaging: Used to detect hidden moisture and potential mold growth by capturing temperature differences on the surface of building materials. 9. Moisture mapping: Involves using specialized equipment to map out areas of elevated moisture levels within building materials. Overall, a comprehensive mold inspection involves a combination of visual inspection, specialized equipment, and techniques to thoroughly assess the property for mold growth and moisture issues. Exposure to mould can result in a range of symptoms and health effects, including headaches, respiratory infections, skin irritations, fatigue, asthma aggravation, behavioral changes, and depression. These can have a significant impact on the health and productivity of occupants. Therefore, it is vital to investigate and identify suspected mould in the indoor environment.
