Mold & Moisture Remediation

Mold becomes a problem inside a home or business when there's excessive humidity or moisture. The problem can originate from sudden water releases, like a burst pipe or large spill that goes untreated, or from a chronic condition, such as a leaking roof or plumbing. Even high humidity or warm, moist air condensing on cool surfaces can trigger mold problems. It's always best to have the mold evaluated and removed by a certified professional.

Mold can grow almost anywhere in a home or building if conditions permit. If there is visible growth on painted wall surfaces, property owners should be concerned about what may be growing on the wall's opposite side. The environment inside the walls of a home often differs drastically from the outside and could create a perfect haven for mold. If the wall remains wet for a prolonged period, it's almost guaranteed that the mold growth on the back side of wallboard or insulation will be worse than on the face. At that point, containing the work space, setting equipment and removing moldy materials, followed by cleaning of salvageable framing, will be required..

Certified professionals have the training and experience to: identify moisture sources, evaluate mold growth (visible or suspected), to contain damage to the smallest area possible, to physically remove contamination, to dry materials to ensure that mold will not return, and to perform or recommend procedures for returning property to a pre-loss condition.

When evaluating the results of a professional mold remediation, Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation, IICRC S520 , is a common resource used by Indoor Environmental Professions, (IEP) which aids in the determination of a successful mold remediation.

Priority must be given to worker & occupant safety. Workers must be trained in containment of work areas, HAZCOM (Personal protective equipment and use of chemicals) and mold remediation. Mold remediation must follow standard techniques utilizing containment of work areas, negative air HEPA scrubbers, negative air ventilation for the work space and proper safety equipment and processes to completely remove mold. This includes treating effected areas and disposing of contaminated materials. Disposed contaminated (moldy) materials for most jobs are not considered hazardous waste.
