Remediation process starts with assessment

Mold is fungi that grow in damp places and also inside houses when moisture control is insufficient. The growth of mold must be immediately controlled because apart from damaging everything it grows on; mold can also cause health problems including allergic reactions and asthma attacks. Mold remediation is the process by means of which mold growth can be effectively controlled. It is important to target the source of moisture or else mold can easily return. In other words, treating the symptoms would be useless and it is the source that must be completely removed so mold re-growth can be avoided. Some sources of mold may be found in water leaks, building maintenance problems and HVAC system. Remediation process involves consultation with experts in the field as well as health professionals. Occupants’ safety should not be overlooked as during the remediation process, they may face increased exposure to fungi.

Water leaks in a pipeline system

The most economical and efficient way of transporting gases, oils and other fluids is through a pipeline network. The pipeline should be highly maintained in order to uphold the demand of reliability and safety, if this is not done then there is a high probability of leakage. So how are these leaks formed? There are a number of things that may lead to pipeline leaks. They include: accidents; earth movement (geophysics); damage from excavation tools; sabotage etc.
Water leaks in a pipeline system lead to low water pressure which is not only frustrating but also leads to the damage of equipments and also financial loss. The leak can be detected using the following methods:
Gas Filling: This method is effective when access to the pipe is easy. The procedure includes the introduction of an industrial gas into a pipe and the track is inspected with a device sensitive to that compound. With the gas being pumped at high pressure, if there exists a leak then the detector immediately detects it.
