Haverkate & Associates Inc. is an indoor environmental testing company that specializes in air quality assessment and forensic mould investigation. Frank Haverkate, founder and President, has trained extensively in Europe, Canada and the United States, having amassed over 13 years of experience in the field. His focus and specialty is in mould assessment of residential homes, commercial office buildings, and industrial facilities. At Haverkate & Associates, trained teams are in engaged in the inspection, assessment and remediation of a wide range of facilities including water-damaged buildings; marijuana grow-houses; and clandestine drug labs. These kinds of assessments require a high level of expertise in indoor environmental pollution, but also in the field of biohazard evaluation. The company is also involved in developing and instituting mandatory environmental assessment protocols advocated by various municipalities (specifically for marijuana grow-operations). In Canada, Mr. Haverkate was first to pioneer the use of mould detection dogs, becoming a Certified K-9 Handler himself, and introducing the nation’s first Certified Mould Detection Dog. Similar in training to traditional bomb or drug detection dogs, the mould detection canine is a significant contribution to any air quality investigator.
