Building Inspection and Testing

Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP) is a broad category that covers several professions including Building Biologists, ACAC certified inspectors, Mycologists/Microbiologists and Industrial/Occupational Hygienists.

These professionals are able identify the source and extent of water damage, moisture and, if necessary, amount and location of microbial growth via sampling. They can also determine the required scope of works to return the property to pre-event condition, and after remediation,  provide post-remediation verification. They may send mould samples to micro/myco-biologists or other laboratories for analysis and quantification.

Note: Toxic Mould Support Australia does not favor one group of professionals over another for the investigation and remediation of water damage and microbial growth in buildings. Neither can we personally vouch for any of the professionals below – do your due diligence and research.

Building Biologists will inspect a property not only for water damage and microbial growth but for building design, EMFs, geopathic stress, water quality and other toxins and toxicants.

DIY Testing – MSQPCR (ERMI / HERTSMI-2)

Environmental Relative Moldiness Index is a test that quantifies the DNA of mould spores and spore equivalents (fragments) in a sample of dust using MSQPCR (Mould Specific Quantified PCR). This is a screening test that can be done by current and prospective homeowners or ideally by IEP/BB/mycologist. ERMI tests for 36 different species of fungi. The HERTSMI-2 score can be calculated from the ERMI report or done as a stand alone test, that looks at 5 species of fungi. The HERTSMI-2 score is endorsed by Dr. Shoemaker as the most accurate building test for CIRS patients (Shoemaker & Lark, 2016).

Current pricing (all in AUD):

HERTSMI-2 – $249 (Swiffer) / $276 (Carpet)

NSJ Envirosciences send to their sister laboratory in the USA, Envirobiomics, every Friday, with results expected late the next week. TMSA suggests people express their Swiffer cloth/vacuum kit to arrive at NSJ by Wednesday or Thursday so it gets there in time for the Friday shipment.

Remediation

Remediators should follow the industry standard “ANSI/IICRC S520 Standard for Mold Remedation” (2015) at a minimum.

CIRS patients will often need a higher level of remediation than these entail. The protocol to achieve this level is outlined in the Surviving Mold Consensus statement (2016).
