Mold “Remediation” is much more than just cleaning up the mold. At Flood Pros, we pride ourselves in following the strictest of industry protocols as defined by Indoor Environmental Standards Organization (IESO) and the (IICRC). Proper containment and removal of mold growth is essential to preventing further spread and contaminating air with mold spores or toxins.
What to Expect During Mold Remediation
Proper disposition of the mold is determined by its location and the specific materials it has colonized. Removing the mold includes several options; wet washing, wire brushing, HEPA vacuuming to name a few. In some cases complete removal of infected materials is mandatory (ie. drywall). Once cleaned an area may require the application of biocides, based on written protocol.
Upon receipt of your claim, an inspector will be sent out to assess the damage and collect a mold sample for analysis. It is important that if any mold is present in excess of 10% coverage it should be treated as hazardous and disposed of properly. Mold spores are microscopic, so they can spread easily and grow on almost anything. The most effective way to eliminate mold is to remove it completely from the area where it is found.
If you suspect any kind of mold in your home or business, don’t wait for an insurance inspector, contact a certified environmental remediation professional now. Mold can spread easily and quickly if not taken care of properly. Once mold has begun to grow hidden behind walls and under floors, it becomes difficult to remove.
After the cleaning process is completed all materials will require a minimum of 24-48 hours to ensure that any remaining mold spores have been eliminated before they are returned to use. It is crucial that after your affected areas have been cleaned, you follow up to ensure everything has been taken care of satisfactorily.
