Skalsky & Associates is highly experienced in locating sources of water intrusion, identifying fungal growth, and assessing the consequences of fungal exposure. When mold is discovered colonizing a building, we believe that as a matter of practice and as a matter of science that the specific species of the colonizing mold(s) needs to be identified. Without knowing the specific identity of a colonizing species of mold, it is not possible to fully evaluate the potential hazards of mold exposure nor is it possible to achieve an indoor/outdoor comparison of airborne mold levels.
Excess moisture within buildings is a problem because it supports the growth of bacteria, fungi, and insects (i.e., dust mites). These moisture related organisms can give rise to indoor allergens that can seriously impact the health of sensitive individuals. Where allergy related claims have been made, Skalsky & Associates has monitored for moisture related allergens (Bla g 1, Der f 1 , Der p 1 etc.) within both private and public settings.
To address the moisture intrusion dilemma, Skalsky & Associates has utilized the unique practice of moisture profiling to assist law firms in litigations to establish lateral and vertical extent of moisture migration. We have found that moisture profiling will highlight the location/source of moisture intrusion and will often identify locations of hidden mold growth. Whatever your needs for moisture and/or mold related problems, Skalsky & Associates can gather data to assess the resultant damage and provide expert consultation.
