Building Forensics IAQ
We now offer two separate air cleaning services which provide our clients with differing benefits both of which far outperform HEPA filtration.
Both systems are designed to benefit those suffering Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) otherwise known as Inflammatory Response or simply "Building related" or "Mould" illness. (See typical symptoms)
The first benefit is both systems clean the air within hours and reduce airborne risks from soot's, dust, allergens, particulates mould to bacteria. It is therefore important for clients to identify which of the protocols is best fit to their requirements
Option 1 Airscrub
This process is the only one recommended by leading mould treatment web site ( survivingmold ) The air cleaning treatment is recommended post remediation and or after isolation of contaminated areas.
The air is filled with a non corrosive salt formulae which includes glycerine and misted to sweep all areas. The mist will coat all airborne particulates and cause them to conglomerate Once the air is visibly fogged, a second chemical is misted and this is absorbed by the first chemical making it too heavy to remain airborne, thereby causing all airborne particulates to fall onto horizontal surfaces. As the minimal moisture evaporates the glycerine forms a sacrificial film to hold down the fallen particulates and cleaning must be undertaken within 4 days prior to decay of the glycerine and re-aerosolization of fallen particulates As the cleaning and removal of fallen particulates is low risk and hazard we leave the cleaning to the client, not least as they will probably do a better job than most low paid people we can find to do it. Post treatment air particle counts can be shown to have reduced bio aerosols and air sampling can also be used to confirm risk reduction according to International and British Standards. While we are pleased to offer clearance sampling but some additional charges may apply.
The posttreatment cleaning is very straightforward and we provide an information sheet on this. Typically we advise the use of alcohol wipes to remove the residual contamination. We recommend cheap Vodka diluted 7:1 with water and use of Swiffer disposable wipes, available in most supermarkets.
Option 2 Low cost decontamination and residual mould protection There is no substitute to professional decontamination of biologically challenged properties or more importantly where immune compromised or sensitised occupants reside. Having said that, and after providing professional decontamination for 30 years, we realise few can afford the usual costs of £100,000 plus costs. The following consensus paper shows the difficulties and cost elements of professional decontamination. ( Click here) We have developed the following low cost risk reduction protocol and this may be suitable to some clients. ( click here for details) The process can only be undertaken in unoccupied premises, no pets either The process uses a sanitising agent recommended by CDC (Centre of Disease Control) and EPA-Environmental Protection Agency, CAAC -Civil Aviation Administration China 4th Edition of COVID 19 No re occupation for 4 hours after treatment The air is filled with a micro-mist of oxidising agent which will quickly degrade into carbon dioxide and water The objective is to dilute viral loading using recognised protocols by filling the air with a micro-mist which will settle on surfaces, thereby providing a twofold action of de nurturing spores, oxidising bacteria and viral loading The initial treatment is followed by the application of the risk reduction and control process Where verifiable evidence is required this will be provided by pre and post sampling and compliance with British and International standards.
There are several ways to improve IAQ but most have serious limitation in terms of cost, time and efficiency. These limitations are explained in our Technical Section where we show and prove scientific evidence that Air Scrub provides the most effective, fast and affordable results.
