Technical Goals of Mold Remediation
Identifying and Repairing Cause
The first step is to identify and repair whatever structural defect, environmental condition, or mechanical failure caused the mold contamination initially. This is carried out by Certified Mold Technicians utilizing specialized equipment.
Visible problems removed.
Depending on the level of the contamination, containment, negative air generation and HEPA air filtration/ vacuuming may take place while all mold contaminated building materials that cannot be salvaged or cleaned are removed beyond all visible contamination.
Odor Issues resolved.
Mycotoxin production, a byproduct of mold growth, causes the odors commonly associated with mold contamination. Complete eradication combined with an EPA approved biocide application will effectively eliminate these odors. Our Air Purification technology can also leave your indoor air truly clean.
Environment is suitable for occupancy.
Post remediation verification or (clearance testing) may need to be conducted to insure the environment is suitable for re-occupancy.
5 Principles of Mold Remediation
1. Safety and Health – Safety is priority #1 for All Remediation Technicians. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and containment insure both worker and occupant safety.
2. Project Documentation – We pride ourselves on effective and thorough documentation throughout every remediation project, with both photos and reports, to protect the interests of both the contractor and property owner.
3. Contaminant Control – Dust suppression, HEPA Filtration, Negative Air, and Isolation are a few ways to guard against cross contamination.
4. Contaminant Removal – Items that cannot be cleaned must be removed from the remediation site. Optional clearance testing insures that all contaminants have been removed and the environment is again suitable for occupancy.
5. Contamination Prevention – Even the best remediation is carried out in vain if the underlying cause or condition is not identified and repaired.
