How long does a consultation usually take?


It is difficult to say how long a consultation may take due to the varying complexity of problems that may exist. Typically it may be assumed that a consultation takes approximately 1 hour per 1000 square feel of space to be assessed. This means that an on-site consultation for a standard home would usually take less than 2 hours. Consulting on larger projects may require several stages of work and may be ongoing over several weeks or months.




Who performs the consultation?


Consultations are performed by our well trained and experienced staff headed by Josh Kulyk. Our friendly staff are all construction experts with strong backgrounds in science and technology. We are all very passionate about construction and ensuring safe, healthy occupancies for our clients.




How can I best prepare for the consultation?


When preparing for a consultation it is a good idea to compile a list of issues you wish to address and incidents that have occurred so that we may consider all the factors most important to you when working to investigate and resolve your concerns. If indoor air quality testing is to be conducted it is a good idea to close up the windows and doors well in advance of the testing to get the best idea of the fungal ecology indoors without dilution from outside air.




What happens if you discover an issue?


If a potential issue is discovered during a consultation you will be presented with a brief background related to the hazard and its risks. Depending on the issue sampling may be recommended to determine the presence of a hazard or the exposure levels. In some cases the hazard may be related to a construction defect that would be brought to your attention and recommended for correction. No matter what the issue we do our very best to give you accurate, pertinent information so that you may make informed decisions that best suit your situation.
