Leading the field in microbiological testing and risk assessment, the ADE Consulting Group team draws upon years’ worth of experience and a rich vein of expertise. From our locations in Sydney, Newcastle and Melbourne we conduct in-depth Mycological Inspections and Post Remediation Verification sampling at sites and properties throughout the country.

Typically, fungal spores don’t pose a health risk for humans. However, certain species and high concentrations of fungal spores can cause adverse health effects in people as allergens or through the production of mycotoxins.

Damp buildings are an ideal environment for the proliferation of fungal spores, and often building materials and techniques can exacerbate moisture issues associated with mould growth.

Due to the unpredictable nature of mycological contamination, a dynamic approach is necessary to thoroughly identify and address sources of contamination. ADE work directly with our clients to ensure specific needs are met for each site and a comprehensive sampling plan is designed to thoroughly assess mycological contamination.
