Mold Remediation

Process

 

Mold remediation has several steps from start to finish in order to

Have a successful remediation. These steps include pre-testing, setting up

Containments, setting up HEPA filtered air scrubbers, post-testing (closeout testing)

 and drying the structure if necessary.

 

Pre-Testing

 

Pre-testing is performed to verify the nature and extent of the contamination

and to set the guidelines for remediation. This test is performed by an independent

mold inspector or industrial hygienist. Once the scope of work is determined,

environmental barriers (containment) is set up to contain affected areas from the rest

of the structure.

 

Tear-out

 

Removal of contaminated materials can include drywall, insulation, cabinets, carpet,

pad and other flooring. These materials are bagged up, removed from the premises

and disposed of properly.

 

Cleaning

 

 HEPA filtered air scrubber(s) are used during the remediation process to process the air inside the contained areas.  This is used to collect air borne particles that can’t be seen with the naked

eye.  Cleaning of all materials inside the containment can include HEPA vacuuming, sanding, and wiping down surfaces with an antimicrobial cleaning agent. Cleaning is performed in steps and can usually take multiple applications to be effective.

 

Post (Close)-out testing

 

Post-testing is performed after all remediation and cleaning has been completed. The test

results determine whether the remediation efforts were successful or if additional work needs

 to be performed. The containment is then removed and drying or reconstruction can begin.
