Mould contamination is a concern due to the various associated health and comfort implications as moulds produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, toxins that may cause adverse reactions in humans. Fungi are common contaminants in the indoor environment, however, it is when conditions allow mould growth to flourish that there is a concern. At Cascade Environmental Consulting Ltd, we offer mould testing and inspections in Edmonton. Whenever conducting a mould removal project, it’s critical to have a professional team on-site to provide mould testing during the project development.
High humidity, reduced ventilation, tighter buildings, and HVAC systems that have water or condensate present allow for the growth and distribution of various fungal species.
All mould types have the potential to cause adverse health effects. People’s reaction to fungal exposure is quite varied, and although anyone can be affected, some people may be more susceptible and at greater risk, including infants and children, the elderly, pregnant women, individuals with a respiratory condition, allergies, or asthma, and persons with weakened immune systems.
If you believe you may have a moisture problem in your home or office, Cascade Environmental Consulting Ltd. can conduct an investigation and mould inspection. During this investigation, we perform a complete visual inspection of any accessible areas of the building. We look for potential water penetration and search for visible signs that mould is growing in your building. Sometimes devices such as moisture meters and IR thermal cameras are used to help identify areas of mould growth.
If any areas of potential mould growth are found during the investigation, Cascade Environmental Consulting Ltd. can also complete mould inspection in the Edmonton area. Mould testing samples are taken from the home and sent to a lab for testing. We use only certified laboratories with a proven track record for sample analysis. This mould inspection will then tell us what type of mould is present and whether it is harmful and needs to be removed. Our fully-qualified team has high standards and ensures that sampling is conducted in accordance with standard methods and protocols outlined by ACGIH, AIHA, and Health Canada.
We offer a full list of contamination services, including:
