So you think you might have one of these undesirables in your home and you want to find out for sure. That is probably why you have contacted us. Mould spores are indeed everywhere in our lives, while asbestos is more localized and can remain safe if undisturbed. The only places mould spores may not be in any quantities are in extremely clean environments like possibly an operating room or sterile lab and we do not live in either of those.
First off I do not come into your home and look at it and tell you it is mould or asbestos. But if it is something else altogether and I know what it is I will tell you. I am not an alarmist and will only do what is best for you my client. I do not carry a mobile testing lab and do not assume anything. But by bringing the right equipment with me I can take all the required samples to be sent out to a qualified testing lab so that the actual results can be properly determined. Once you my client and I know what it is then and only then can I make a determination as to what would be a remedy if required.
I also do not show up in a vehicle with “MOULD TESTING” plastered all over it. Discretion is always my policy when it comes to my clients.
Oh yes there will be lots of questions. I want to know where you think the mould or asbestos is. Whether it is visible or not. Sometimes it is not visible but can be there and the only indications are smell for mould, maybe personal physical reactions and you the client wanting a piece of mind to ensure it is or isn’t there. I ask lots of question to best determine the extent of testing you might require.
Like you I do not want to do more testing than is needed. I will also answer ALL of your questions honestly and truthfully, but please understand sometimes my answer may be I do not know. Under those situations I will try to find an answer for you. Unlike an actual mould presence an asbestos presence is odourless so unless it is visible it will be difficult to determine a location without being physically able to see it.
Contact us and we’ll get back to you as soon as posible.
