Without mold testing how do you even know if you have mold? Mold testing and a mold inspection can answer your questions. A certified mold inspector knows that mold creates the most common indoor air quality complaints, from the smell of “mildew” to the adverse health effects of fungal spores.
One of the most important responsibilities of your licensed mold assessor is to create a mold remediation protocol specific to your loss. A mold remediation protocol outlines the needed actions for any necessary mold remediation. Each plan is individually prepared based on the indoor environmental consultants mold assessment of the property, the size, and area of the mold contamination.
The Mold Remediation Protocol will specify the mold remediation containment strategy, decontamination areas, negative air pressure and air filtration(scrubbing), equipment utilization, personal protective equipment, specific cleaning protocols, project completion requirements, and site-specific safety plan.
If you've experienced water damage or an unusual musty odor in your home or place of business, you may be at risk of mold contamination. More than just affecting indoor air quality, mold can produce toxins that can cause headaches, fatigue, sore throat, or serious health risks in both humans and animals. The quality of mold remediation service varies widely from company to company, and choosing the wrong one can lead to recurring growth. That's why it's essential to hire a qualified team to isolate the problem so you can stop it at the source.
Post-Remediation means "after mold has been removed". A post-remediation verification survey (sometimes called clearance testing) includes a visual inspection and moisture assessment of the construction materials that were part of the remediation work, and air quality testing inside the work area.
The purpose of clearance testing is to determine the success of the mold remediation efforts inside of existing containment areas to document the areas remediated are safe for occupants to safely enter.
