Microbial Contamination Consulting
Anyone who owns, runs or renovates a building may have to respond to the possibility of mould contamination. This includes schools and daycares, health care facilities, apartments and private residences, office towers, large and small commercial buildings, and shopping centres. Virtually any moisture-affected building surface can support mould growth. Various species can cause adverse health effects in occupants, ranging from headache and flu-like symptoms to serious and possibly permanent health impairment.
