How It Works

How Our Mould Dogs Find Mould That You Can't See

Air sampling and related mould inspection techniques are expensive and laboratory analysis of the samples can take up to three weeksRufus the Mould Dog with Ed (depending on the particular test) before the results are known.

Moreover, traditional air sampling cannot pinpoint the source of mould; it merely confirms the presence of mould in the overall space where the sample was taken. The dog, on the other hand, is trained to alert to the exact location of the mould. In situations involving isolated contamination sites the Mould Dog is most often accurate within 1-2 metres of the actual source of contamination.

This means that costly air sampling can be limited to the contaminated areas and at the same time samples can be taken at the suspected contaminated site thus ensuring a higher degree of accuracy in the air samples themselves. If destructive (bulk) sampling is preferred, then the Mould Dog provides assurance that destructive testing will not be a 'hit-or-miss' proposition.

Another important benefit of pinpointing mould sources is that the cost of remediation (repairs) can be reduced dramatically by repairing only those areas which are actually contaminated.

(As a rough rule of thumb, a dog can inspect an average 2 storey house (2000 sq. ft.) in approximately 2 hours.)

Our Mould Dogs and handlers have received a total of over one thousand hours of training per team at the Florida Canine Academy in St. Petersburg, Florida. The Florida Canine Academy has earned an international reputation in the training of dogs and handlers for military, law-enforcement and civilian purposes for over twenty years.

(To ensure the highest level of performance, our Mould Dogs and handlers are tested and recertified annually.)
