Assessment, determination of the cause and elimination of mold

Sustainable mold removal

Especially in the cold season for many apartment and house users begins the fight against mold. Especially in window reveals, on exterior walls and in wall corners, especially in the area of balcony and patio doors, black spots form that are all too happy to spread if left unattended. To eliminate the problem in the long term, you have to get to the bottom of the cause.

The determination of the cause is of decisive importance in the fight against and prevention of mold infestation, since as a rule, without effective elimination of the cause, mold growth will recur. As a testing, inspection and certification body, the OFI offers a comprehensive testing program for the investigation of mold infestation and other problems of structural thermal protection.

 

What we can do for you

  • Determination of causes as a basis for sustainable mold removal and prevention
  • Preparation of expert opinions by sworn and court-certified experts
  • Preparation of redevelopment concepts
  • Consultative support in disputes

 

What options are available to us

  • Visualization of surface temperatures
  • Detection of construction-related thermal weak points (according to ÖNORM EN 13187 – Qualitative verification of thermal bridges in building envelopes)
  • Verification of the execution of thermal insulation measures
  • Investigation of user behavior /humidity production, ventilation) over a defined period of time.
  • Correlation of the results for estimating the risk of mold infestation.
  • Determination of the air exchange rate according to ÖNORM EN 13829
  • Detection of air leaks and measurements of air velocities or through visualization by means of infrared thermography
  • Investigation of mold spore contamination of indoor air, on building component surfaces and in building material samples
  • Identification of mold species
