MOLD REMOVAL AND REMEDIATION

Visual Inspection and Assessment

Initial inspection of affected area and determination of cause for mold colonization is the first step in a series of mold remediation procedures. Our state certified and licensed mold technicians are qualified to give these initial inspections.

Source of Moisture

Before any mold abatement begins, correcting moisture causing issues will maximize results for a succesful remediation process. Moisture, light and temperature are the perfect combination for mold growth. Best and most effective way to prevent mold is to keep atmospheric and content conditions dry. Remember where there is moisture theres the potential for mold growth.   

Sampling and Testing

Pre sampling and testing allows the an Indoor Air Quality Professional to determined the scope of work and identifying the kind of fungi that is present in the affected areas. There are two types of sampling methods used  to collect this information, surface and air sampling. These sampling tests are protocol in determining a remediation plan for Mold Technitians to follow. At the end of remediation when all work is completed the Indoor Air Quality Professional will conduct a post clearance sampling test which allows for all parties involved to receive documentation and verification that the remediation was successful. 

Containment and Air filtration

Containment set up prevents cross contamination of viable mold spores during removal of affected areas. Air filtration and removal of mold spores that are areosolized  is accomplished by utilizing HEPA air filtration and micro traps to filter and vent out to the exterior of your property. Air filtration is accompanied with dehumidification equipment to maintain and keep moisture levels down to a minimum. 

Removal of Affected Building Materials

Remediation is accomplished by removing non salvable building materials such as wood, drywall, insulation etc. All waste material is then properly bagged and discarded. 

Cleaning and Disinfection

This part of the remediation process is very important to inhibit future recolonization of viable mold spores. SSR utilizes HEPA filtered vacuums to remove debris and any settled mold spores on all flat or vertical surfaces. Following this procedure we can begin wiping down all surfaces and contents with non harmful cleaning and disinfecting agents. At this point clearance testing is performed.
