Moisture & Mould Damage Assessments
Residential, Commercial, and Industrial Buildings:
When it comes to mould and moisture, ENV Solutions stands as your trusted partner. Our primary objective is to identify the source of moisture ingress and extent of microbial contamination while outlining associated risks for all stakeholders. Our assessments serve as the foundation upon which we offer suitable remediation recommendations.
Upon engagement, ENV’s hygienists perform a thorough assessment, covering:
- Source and extent of water damage to buildings and contents using surface and penetrating moisture measurements.
- Classification and category of water intrusion.
- Atmospheric conditions (temperature and relative humidity) of indoor and outdoor environments.
- The presence of actual, potential or hidden mould growth and bacteria (Fecal Coliforms, E. Coli, and Enterococcus) using surface and airborne sampling techniques.
- “Condition” status of microbial impacted material based on their porosity.
- Identification of Hazardous Building Materials (HazMat) which may also have been impacted.
Upon completion, stakeholders receive a detailed report that outlines findings, laboratory results (if applicable), and remediation recommendations.
Asbestos Assessment and Management
Our services extend to asbestos assessment and management, adhering strictly to the Work Health and Safety Regulation (2017), NSW Government Code of Practice: How to Safely Remove Asbestos (2022), and NSW Government Code of Practice: How to Manage and Control Asbestos in the Workplace (2022).
Post-Remediation Verification (PRV) Assessments
Our PRV assessments are designed to assure stakeholders that rectification works have been completed to the highest standards. ENV’s hygienists are always independent of the restoration contractor and, upon engagement, carry out:
- A visual inspection of completed remediation work.
- Qualitative inspection and mapping of moisture levels using advanced instrumentation.
- Validation samples for mould surface and airborne samples, as well as bacteria (Fecal Coliforms, E. Coli, and Enterococcus).
- Clearance certificates for Asbestos and Hazardous Materials (if required).
- PRV certification on completion to allow normal re-occupation of remediated areas.
Our comprehensive services encompass various options, such as:
- Independent Intrusive Pre-Remediation Visual Assessment, including assessment in wall cavities, crawl spaces, and ceiling voids.
- Interim Assessment to establish the extent of impacts during demolition and remediation.
- Due Diligence Air Quality Assessment to assess indoor air quality for occupation suitability.
Due Diligence Mould Testing & Risk Assessments
We recognise that the level of remediation works can significantly impact occupants’ health and financial obligations for property owners or insurers. At ENV Solutions, we offer unbiased, scientific, and independent advice at every stage of a remediation project or insurance claim, mitigating losses and reducing potential litigation.
Our assessment options range from simple visual inspections to comprehensive assessments, ensuring you have the information you need to make informed decisions.
