Mould Removal & Remediation

We will carry out a survey of the property to identify possible causes of damp penetration and condensation inside the property and recommend if any Mould Removal & Remediation action is required.

JHE offer a service of diagnosing the causes of condensation, which can lead to mould, combining a full diagnostic process with a plan for action, along with a programme of Mould Removal & Remediation to eradicate the mould problem.  Insurers, homeowners, landlords and tenants can all benefit from the comprehensive service offered across the UK.

Mould is classed as a category (1) risk to health, as assessed under the Housing Health and Safety Rating System 2000, which is the same class as asbestos. The Environmental Protection Act (1990) classifies mould as a statutory nuisance that must be treated.

JHE has a proven tried and tested process when considering Damp and Condensation issues in any property.

Testing Services

We can provide the following:

  • UKAS registered Laboratory testing and Analysis.
  • Air monitoring/sampling.
  • Analysis of biocontaminants.
  • Reassurance air testing.
  • Mould colony forming unit count after swab test.
  • Asbestos sample testing.

 

Mould Removal & Remediation: JHE Environmental use a unique patented product which is proven to kill 99.9% of Mould Spores and Fungi and more importantly it is harmless to human, animal and plant cells.

Unlike some other Biocides and anti Mould products, our process kills the mould rather than just clean or bleach the surface and is a concentrated anti microbial with a multi-surface broad spectrum kill and residual control.

While Mould is unsightly it is also a recognised health hazard which the World Health Organisation state may trigger asthma and cause skin (Eczema) and respiratory sanitisation and/or immune system system responses including respiratory infections and rarely hypersensitivity pneumonitis, allergic alveolitis, chronic rhinosinusitis and allergic fungal sinusitis.  Severe reactions are rare but possible.

A person’s reaction to mould depends on their sensitivity and other health conditions, the amount of mould present, length of exposure and the type of mould.  The moulds also produce mycotoxins that can pose serious health risks to humans and animals.  The term “toxic mould” refers to the production of mycotoxins, such as Stachybotrys chartarum. Exposure to high levels of mycotoxins can lead to neurological problems and in some cases death.

  • Mould Removal & Remediation
  • Cost effective and safe removal of 99.9% of mould species
  • Survey and testing service
  • Cost effective and proven system

Aspergillus various species but some can produce Aflatoxin and Ochratoxin and these are carcinogens.

Penicillium can produce Ochratoxin and is linked specifically to damage of kidneys and liver and depleting the immune system.

Stachybotrys and Fusarium can produce Trichothecenes which are known to be extremely harmful.

 

The extent of mould growth can generally be categorised into 3 levels:

Level  I (Small Scale) Less than 1 square metre
Level  II (Medium Scale) between 1-10 square metres
Level III (large Scale) greater than 10 square metres

 

Each Mould Removal & Remediation project is regarded as unique and therefore all remedial methodology is ‘task specific ‘for that project.

We are fully trained to:

  • Safely and successfully clear and clean Mould by using an established remediation methodology as part of our Standard Operating Procedure.
  • Technicians use of personal protective equipment ( PPE) when in contact with Mould and the use of HEPA vacuum and air movement and control systems
  • Follow an agreed method on containment, repair, cleaning and disposal of Mould contaminated materials from within the building.
  • Erection of screening, protection, enclosures for containment of mould spores and dust whilst carrying out the Mould remediation work.
  • Adhere to the agreed route of transporting the material from the area of work to the appropriate specific mould waste container.

Our in depth condensation /damp surveys are carried out by experienced and qualified surveyors using a range of testing equipment including environmental and thermal tests.

These are totally safe and non-intrusive to the occupants.

 

We can provide the following:

  • UKAS registered Laboratory testing and Analysis.
  • Air monitoring/sampling.
  • Analysis of bio-contaminants.
  • Reassurance air testing.
  • Mould colony forming unit count after swab test.
  • Asbestos sample testing.
