Napp Enterprises Ltd. - Mould Remediation

By: Napp Enterprises  09-12-2011

There have been several million different moulds identified to date.  To begin to list them all and the effects possible from exposure would be an impossible task.  We recommend that if you have been exposed to and feel any adverse effects from a mould source that you seek medical attention immediately! 

Exposure to mould can cause varying respiratory tract problems.  Some of them are less serious but they should not be ignored.  Runny nose, headache, dizziness, asthma aggravation and fatigue are some of the less serious symptoms experienced.  More severe symptoms can include profuse bloody noses, extreme headaches, and coughing up blood.   

Poor ventilation that allows moisture to build up can result in mould growth.  Improper restoration after water damage from flooding, sewer backups, and water line breaks also creates environments that encourage mould growth.  Attic spaces with less than optimum amounts of insulation and ventilation can provide ideal conditions for mould to grow.  

Mould is an organism, it has defense mechanisms, release of spores, and toxins can contaminate the area and has the potential to spread the mould growth to other areas.  It is important that you use a certified removal technician when dealing with mould remediation.   

As mould issues tend to be on the rise so is the need for qualified remediation technicians.  Our staff is trained in the most current technology to remediate and inhibit future mould growth.  We have certified water restoration and microbial remediation technicians on staff that can manage projects anywhere in BC of any size. 

Please feel free to contact us and we will come and make an initial site assessment on your property, complete with recommendations and a written quote.

Napp Enterprises Ltd. - Hazardous Materials

It is important to note that while the production of asbestos containing materials was stopped in the late 1970’s, there has been asbestos discovered in buildings constructed as late as 1986. Vermiculite insulation contains asbestos as a natural by product of the mining process and so one must exercise diligence during testing to avoid a false reading.

Napp Enterprises Ltd. - PCB Removal

Manufacturers used PCB’s (polychlorinated biphenyls) in electrical components due to their insulating properties. The most commonly found form of PCB’s in buildings is the fluorescent light ballasts (power box inside fixtures). While the majority of testing has been on animals, studies in human exposure provide supportive evidence. PCB has both carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic side affects.
