Temperature, Humidity and Dew Point Temperature Readings

These readings give you an understanding of where higher temperatures and humidity are occurring in your property. Using this information, it is easier to identify why mould is growing in some areas compared to others.

Moisture Levels

Moisture levels in walls and ceilings is another strong indicator as to why mould is growing in certain areas. Using our tools and knowledge we will be able to identify causes such as rising damp, leaking showers, plumbing leaks and many more potential causes of the mould.

Particle Counts

Indoor air quality is a common concern of home owners and occupants and our inspection report will give you an indication of the air quality in your home in comparison to outside.

Infrared Imaging

Using our infrared cameras in combination with moisture readings we can identify and show you a visual image of additional moisture contributing to mould growth.

An example is below of a roof leak where mould has been occurring. The image identifies the temperature difference and we then confirm the moisture levels to give you a visual and statistical representation of the moisture.

Surface Swabs

Sterile surface swabs are an easy way to sample suspect areas for mould contamination or to detect Coliforms/E.coli/ (CEC), Mould strains following sewage ingress and water leakage.

Bio Tape Surface Sampler

Bio-Tape™ provides a standardised sampling method for the determination of mould, microbial, bio-aerosol, and inorganic dust contamination. It provides the ability to quickly take a sample and measure the relative degree of contamination.
