mouldremoval1When biological contamination of any kind happens within a building, the building itself is the containment. The reason for this is that microorganisms are so small they cannot be seen by the naked eye. It therefore has to be assumed that they cannot be contained in one area of a building.

Microorganisms are so light, between 0.1 and 0.4 of a micron thick; they can float for days and travel to various parts of the containment undetected.

A perfect example is the AMI building in Boca Raton, Florida. It was originally thought that a package containing anthrax was opened in the mail room and contained within this particular area. It was, in fact, right throughout the building.

Anthrax is a bacterial spore not a fungal spore but both are the same size and will float throughout a building. That is why both are so harmful. As was shown in the case of the AMI building, the building itself is the containment. The building was evacuated, air conditioning was turned off and the front doors were closed. It was 5 years before the building finally reopened in 2007.

Mould works in the same manner. If there is an infestation in one area of the building then the mould spores generated could be right throughout the building.

They spread through air movement, are carried on clothing and readily circulate from one area to another. Given the right conditions, the spores will form new colonies resulting in active mould growth. This is why the building itself should be the containment and the spores throughout that containment treated.
