It’s not just the home that can become a playground for mould spores – it can appear pretty much anywhere, both indoors and outdoors all year round.
An office or other workplace environments can also be quickly adopted by mould especially if there is water damage, it has high humidity or dampness, and is likely to thrive unless tackled appropriately.
It is estimated that there is up to 100 common indoor mould types that have the potential for creating health problems if an individual is exposed to it on a regular basis as part of their everyday working activities.
Exposure to moulds can cause symptoms such as nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, nose bleeds, nausea or wheezing. Some people, such as those with serious allergies to moulds, may have more severe reactions.
How to prevent mould in the workplace
To ensure your team is safe and not breathing in harmful fungi micro-organisms, it is paramount that mould is prevented in the workplace.
How we can help
We use the latest technology to perform spore mould inspection, sampling and testing in the workplace. The samples are collected using impact samplers and mould genus identification testing is then carried out by our professional accredited laboratory team.
Our expert technicians will perform a series of exposure sample testing to determine whether your building poses a potential health hazard from mould exposure.
The mould inspection involves gathering surface samples and/or monitoring viable airborne spore levels. We will then make recommendations in relation to the level of risk and actions you could take to control exposure for your workforce and any visitors to your business.
