With decades of experience in conducting mould remediation and air quality assessments across Kamloops and surrounding areas, WP Consulting can provide you with guidance and self awareness by explaining health concerning conditions associated with and contributing to poor indoor air quality.
WP Consulting's assessments are conducted in reference to standards and regulations set by governed bodies and health associations surrounding indoor air quality. Some of these entities include:

One of the most common indoor qaulity concerns is assoicated with mold (mould). Mould is everywhere. It is in the air we breathe outside and inside our buildings. However, adverse health affects are associated with heavy colonized mould (visible to the naked eye and high airborne concentrations). WP Consulting has extensive experience associated with moisture and mould impacted residential and commerical buildings. Our detailed building moisture and mould assessments provide our clients a full capture of their building's current conditions. These assessments include testing moisture in building materials, visual identification of mould and potential mould causing conditions, testing surfaces and air for problematic mould presence/absence.
