Patriot conducts preliminary and post remediation bacterial investigations usually upon request of a remediation company. This service involves swab sampling in areas where sewage backup causes the presence or accumulation of “black water’ on floors and walls. Swab samples are collected and submitted to a reputable microbiology/bacteriology laboratory to determine presence of total coliforms, E. Coli and coliforms. Analysis normally takes 5 days. Patriot generates a report based on analytical results and confirms if the remediation scope of work has been fulfilled and clearance requirements have been met.
