Mold is all around us. In small amounts, we can live harmoniously with it.
But after a natural disaster or water intrusion, building interiors can become magnets for exponential mold growth, which can lead to serious health problems for some people. When there is visible mold, remediation is essential.
Following an incident of water damage, our preferred method of attack is to properly clean and dry surfaces and materials to prevent mold growth. If that’s not possible, our mold remediation teams can make recommendations for removing mold based on the size and scope of the contamination. We may also bring in the services of a Certified Industrial Hygienist to help with consulting and testing to ensure you have all the information you need about your situation.
While there are few laws on the books related to how mold remediation must be done, we follow guidelines for the safe removal and disposal of mold-contaminated items published by the IICRC (Institute for Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification), the EPA, and other state guidelines and requirements.
