General Mold Remediation Procedures
4 key steps: Identifying & Isolating, Restoring & Regulating
Mold remediation involves identifying and removing mold infestation in a building, which improves indoor air quality.
1. Pre-treatment assessment using Indoor Air Quality readings and Surface Microbial Test conducted.
2. Identifying: Assess the levels of infestation and surface penetration. Water leaking is the main root to mold infestation.
3. Isolation: Removal of severely damaged parts and removing mediums that promote mold growth including repairing the source of the water damage.
4. Restoring: A thorough air and surface cleaning process in a controlled environment. This procedure includes structural repair work.
5. Post-treatment assessment.
6. Regulating: The levels of indoor airborne microbial and high levels of indoor humidity promote mold growth on surfaces such as walls, ceilings, and floors. To regulate the acceptable indoor environment of 1000CFU, CFM, and RH, mechanical ventilation system, structural, and organic recommendations are provided.
7. Maintenance. Periodical assessment is recommended.
Mold remediation is a complex and potentially hazardous process because molds are unseen but potentially harmful allergens and toxins. Solicit a trained mold remediator specialist.
