Swab sampling is one of the easiest ways to get a full report on the bacteria contained in any area. Whether you have a commercial property or a construction site, it’s vital to make sure that those that live or work in the area are safe. Swab sampling can identify problems such as mold, fungus, and bacteria.
Finding black spots during a property safety inspection is never fun – if you can rub it and it stains, it may be carbon black or soot. Either way, this will merit further analysis by a laboratory, as both of these matierals are harmful to people’s health. Many people don’t expect to find either one of these on a property or construction site, as these types of materials are usually associated with cars and truck pollutants. If you notice these stains on carpets, around wall outlets, or near ventilation gates, carbon black or soot may be a problem.
Bacteria can be exposed at construction sites since the soil is being constantly disturbed. Water runoff can also be a concern as a source of bacteria. Sources of bacteria can include runoff from wood-lands, pastures, and also nearby feedlots. Septic tanks, sewage plants, animals, and wild fowl also are potential contributors to harmful environmental bacteria problems. Domestic animals contribute heavily to the bacterial population in more populated areas.
Forensic and material testing can help you identify any number of issues on your property. This type of testing is used to detect asbestos, mold, minerals and other materials that may be hazardous to the health of any individuals on your property. Forensic test results may be required for insurance policies as well as any inspections by legal parties.
