In accordance with the BNQ 3009-600 standard, our professionals take into account your objectives and the history of your commercial, industrial, or institutional building to determine the tests and parameters of the air quality to be analyzed.

Material humidity, thermography, physical, or chemical parameters, sampling of viable moulds, and total fungal spores: all these measures help us to establish a good diagnosis, and thus, provide you with a detailed report of the situation.

Our recommendations help you put in place the best solutions to improve the indoor air quality of your building.

Work Management

Management of decontamination work

Elimination of contaminants and rehabilitation of your building

In certain situations where the fungal contamination is very extensive, the moulds are found in a risk environment (hospital, CHSLD, school, etc.), or a destructive fungus such as the weeping rot (Serpula Lacrymans) is identified, monitoring work by a mould expert is required.

Our certified microbiologists support you in all stages of your decontamination work, from the decontamination protocol adapted to your building to post-work tests, including worker training and site supervision.

Certification

Certification of decontamination

Checking air quality and indoor environment compliance

In a disaster, poor diagnosis and unsuitable decontamination techniques for certain situations can leave contaminants in the interior environment of a building.

Our certificates of conformity make it possible to certify that the work has effectively eliminated the identified sources of contamination.

Visual inspection, material moisture measurements, surface sampling and indoor air quality testing are all steps that can provide the level of confidence desired by the occupants of your building.

Legal Expertise

Legal expertise and expert opinion

Recognized expertise for assured peace of mind

As a result of a large-scale real estate transaction, construction defects, claims or hidden defects may arise. In these cases, our microbiologists can help our clients in the real estate, industrial and commercial fields to confirm the presence or assess the extent of the fungal contamination. Our experienced professionals will know how to determine which samples are necessary to give you the correct picture and thus develop the decontamination protocols adapted to the situation.

A second opinion usually saves time and makes good decisions. As it can be difficult to spot misinterpretations when it comes to fungal contamination, we can help our clients verify that a survey document is adequate and that there are no inconsistencies.

Our experts check whether the methods used are recognized and whether the interpretation of the microbiological analyzes is adequate. We can popularize complex aspects and our multidisciplinary team of certified microbiologists, biochemists and chemists keep you on track.
