Some species of mold is allergenic but many indoor species can be pathogenic and unhealthy
Mold Inspection Services for Vancouver & Lower Mainland
mr natural® environmental engineers provide a comprehensive range of services relating to mold including mold testing, mold analysis, consulting, bio-hazard management, remediation and safe, natural products and solution for destroying fungal growth and preventing it from culturing. We specialize in assisting clients with hypersensitivities, allergies or genetic susceptibility to toxic molds.
We receive many inquiries and most start out asking why their doctors are so baffled about why they are so sick and with so many symptoms. Other questions include why some people become chronically ill following an exposure to certain species of toxic mold, while others recover quickly.
This factor is known as genetic predisposition or susceptibility. More than 25 percent of the population is genetically wired to have a tough time ridding itself of the deadly microbes associated from water damage. For this genetic group, the invading pathogens are not tagged and cleared by the body. Instead, they proliferate freely. The body is then left to deal with the attackers in any way it can—which leads to inflammation and is so often at the root of chronic health conditions.
Mold inspections are performed to identify and quantify levels of mold contamination within an indoor environment.
Vancouver area is a common place for mold or “mould” and mildew problems. A mold inspection is a good first step in solving the mold problem. mr natural® provides mold inspections not only to identify the level of contamination and risks to occupants, but to detect what is causing it to culture and provide permanent solutions to prevent it from returning in the future.
Residential & Commercial Mold Inspections
mr natural® performs mold inspections for both residential homes and commercial work places. Mold inspection will evaluate key indoor environmental conditions to fully understand the problems resulting in mold. Our education and passion along with sophisticated equipment is used during the mold inspection to locate moisture, mold growth and the cause. Areas of concern such as roof leaks, plumbing leaks, humidity, evidence of flooding, staining or musty odours with be thoroughly investigated during the mold inspection process.
Thermal imaging equipment is used during the mold inspection to scan all areas of concern for conditions of elevated moisture and mold. Moisture measurements are taken from building materials, walls, ceilings, and floors where the thermal images detect abnormal conditions during the mold inspection. A fiber optic scope can be used to inspect areas not normally visible such as behind walls. Air flows and ventilation systems, if present, are evaluated during the mold inspection. The relative humidity and temperatures are measured and logged in various locations. Building materials are assessed for proper installation and sealing.
Mold testing or other indoor air quality tests may also be performed during a mold inspection to better understand health risks and quantify levels of mold contamination. All of these measurements, tests and observations will help determine why mold is growing and the steps to take to prevent it in the future.
Assessing Mold Problems
Once the onsite engineer has completed the mold inspection, the full extent of the mold problem can be determined. Mold contamination can range from a minor clean up job with no health risks to severe contamination where occupants should vacate the building until remediation is complete. Each mold inspection includes a confidential written report with all our findings, possible test results and recommendations to solve the mold problem. Recommendations include safe, natural and non-toxic methods and technologies that are very effective.
