Microbiological Investigation

occupational-microbiological-investigationExcess water, humidity or un-cleaned ventilation units lead to increased microbiological growth.

Naturally, these micro-organisms live in the outside environment and mostly are found in substrates such as soil, organic matter and water.

Air conditioners, cooling towers and human contact are a number of avenues for microbes to be introduced into an indoor environment.

Enclosed indoor environments once exposed to unnatural levels of microbes will be re-circulated and sensitive allergic reactions may occur.

To assess if complaints such as hives or influenza symptoms are a result of microbes, surfaces and ventilation units require swab testing to determine the source of the contamination.
