A building biologist identifies and addresses health hazards in the built environment from mould and electromagnetic fields to allergens, chemicals, gases and particulates.

Mitey Fresh Building Biology offers many different assessments and as such pricing varies. Essential consultation is $250 + GST for up to one hour, subsequent hour blocks at $150 + GST. You can also contact us and speak to one our experienced members of staff.

How soon can you assess my property?

Building Biology assessment can usually be carried out Monday to Saturday during daylight hours. Though this depends on access arrangements with occupants in the property, Real Estate Agent or landlords. Consultants can usually commence the assessment early in the day in order to meet deadlines or to allow you to attend to your work schedule.

Can you project manage my trades?

Yes. We suggest you engage Mitey Fresh for assessments at critical stages of your building issues and especially if you are having difficulties at a particular stage of building solutions. We do charge extra for time and travel.

Can I speak with the Building Biologist after assessment?

We are very willing to explain specific details and help you understand what you and the property require to undertake. Often a property that appears overwhelming, at first, will seem worthy of further consideration after discussion. And issues, that initially concern you, may be easily fixed or siple tweaking.

MOULD

How do I know if I have mould in my home or office?

Few places on Earth are completely free of mould – it only needs moisture, oxygen and food to grow. Mould loves water damaged material such as timber, paper, clothes, furnishings. There are thousands of species of mould and it can present in a multitude of colours and shapes, or even be invisible. Sometimes you can smell a musty odour, and sometimes you can’t. Our Building Biologist can determine the existence of mould with specialised equipment and meters. Call us now.

Does Mitey Fresh clean or get rid of mould?

We don’t physically clean or get rid of mould. Regardless of the amount of visible mould growth or water damage, we locate and assess the associated invisible mould contamination. We find the trigger in your home or office and provide you with recommendations on how to manage the cause. Based on the results, we help you prevent mould from coming back ever again.

Is the mould in my home making me and my family sick?

Are you experiencing persistent coughing, headaches, muscle aches or difficulty concentrating? You don’t have to see or smell mould for it be a problem. Live and dead mould can be toxic to your health and cause allergic or inflammatory reactions. Even if you’ve recently cleared your home of mould, it’s better to be on the safe side. Get started now.

What information do I need to provide Mitey Fresh Building Biologist with when they come to my property?

Tell us a little more about what we need to know and/or check:

  • 1. What is the issue? (eg mould, damp, cracking, etc)
  • 2. How big is the effected area? (eg one wall, one room, throughout the property, etc)
  • 3. Can you smell anything and which belongings are affected?
  • 4. What is the extent of each occupant’s health? (eg flu like symptoms, headache, generally unwell, etc)

Are you mould remediators or do you clean the mould?

No, we are not mould remediators or cleaners. However we can recommend several mould remediation and cleaning companies that we consider to be IICRC certified, ethical and well qualified.
