One of the top concerns following a flood is mold growth in your home or facility.
Mold as a result of elevated moisture can cause structural damages as well as significant health problems for inhabitants of a home or property.
From a single family residences to an entire apartment, no mold removal job is too big or too small for our team of IICRC certified technicians.
This is our process:
1. TO DETERMINE THE SCOPE OF WORK, USE MOISTURE METERS IN COMBINATION WITH VISUAL OBSERVATIONS TO INSPECT THE AREAConsider and address microbial growth out of sight. For example, the inside of most wall cavities are unfinished creating an ideal condition for mold to grow.
2. STABILIZE THE ENVIRONMENTUse dehumidifiers to reduce the humidity in the air. Consider the use of air scrubbers and poly sheeting to contain the area during evaluation prior to mold removal.
3. EVALUATE FOR HAZARDOUS BUILDING MATERIALSIn structures built prior to 1985, it is common to find asbestos, lead or other hazardous materials. If unsalvageable, removing these materials will require additional care to remain compliant with local and federal laws.
4. REMOVE CONTAMINATED MATERIALSSecure contaminated materials in 6 mil disposal bags and remove them from the site.
5. CRITICALLY CLEAN THE AREA USING THE HEPA SANDWICH METHOD1. HEPA Vacuum
