Toxic mold is a very serious health issue for most First Nations communities across Canada. According to the First Nations Centre and National Aboriginal Health Organization, 44% of homes in First Nations communities have mold issues. When you consider the fact that Canadians spend almost 90% of their time indoors the effects of poor indoor air quality can have very adverse health consequences.
At Cambium Aboriginal we understand the importance and need for healthier homes in First Nations communities. Our team of mold experts can help your community test and detect toxic mold in your community homes and develop the best plan of action. We have decades of experience in this area and our services are tailored to meet the needs of First Nations communities.
A mold inspection is typically required in the following situations:
- There are indoor air quality issues in the building
- There is a persistent odour or a damp or musty smell
- Visible mold is present
- Health issues have been linked to the building
- There was a flooding event or any moisture intrusion issues
- A real estate transaction
Cambium personnel will work with the housing departments, industries, building/property managers, home owners, and restoration contractors to:
- Identify mold problems via visual inspection, review of building history, interviews, moisture meter measurements, etc.;
- Provide report identifying scope of work for timely remediation;
- Inspect the remediation work;
- Final inspection and the collection and assessment of air, tape lift, or bulk samples; and
- Provide a final report documenting that mold has been appropriately removed.
