What is Mold Remediation?

IMG_6765

Mold remediation is often compared to asbestos abatement or asbestos remediation as the process followed to remediate both both mold and asbestos are similar.   When mold remediation is performed the project starts with the containment of the contaminated area, which is performed to ensure that mold does not migrate to other non impacted rooms or areas.  In finished spaces such as homes and offices, negative pressure containment is established to ensure that spores are controlled and contained.   

 

7 Mold  Mold Remediation Procedures 

 

1. Seal off doors, windows, ducts, etc. in the work area from other areas of the building.  Do not spread the mold to other areas.

5. Remove impacted material.  If you must carry material through living space and double bag the material.

6. & 7  Apply  a broad spectrum fungicide  to all surfaces to kill any remnant spores.  Apply  fungistatic coating which will inhibit FUTURE mold growth.    The white tinted coating is by far the most popular as it is visible on surfaces coated.  Anyone who has painted a room know that areas can be missed so applying a color that is distinct from the original surface color ensures that  the desired area is coated. This coating will also encapsulate the porous surfaces (wood) from absorbing moisture and to kill and remaining mold spores.

Most mold remediation is not a DIY (Do It Yourself) project, simple because homeowners don't have the training or access to the necessary equipment to remediate the mold.

Successful mold remediation includes both the removal of the mold as well as finding the source of the moisture that caused the mold growth.  An often overlooked portion of any mold remediation is the evaluation of what caused the mold growth in the first places and the application of measures to prevent the situation from reoccurring.  Simple put, define what was the moisture source (many times it is sources) and remedy the cause.

    This photo series represents a vacant home where water historically infiltrated the unfinished space of the first floor (slab on grade construction).  A water pipe froze and broke and at one point up to 14" of water filled the space, impacting Sheetrock, insulation and carpets.  
  •  The water entry was discovered within a week, which helped prevent mold growth from spreading too far past the high water mark (mold needs 48 to 72 hours of moisture to start to grow and spread). 
  • Only Sheetrock and insulation up to 24" required removal. All impacted building materials were removed under controlled conditions (negative air). 
  • Only Sheetrock and insulation up to 24" required removal. All impacted building materials were removed under controlled conditions (negative air). 
  • Only Sheetrock and insulation up to 24" required removal. All impacted building materials were removed under controlled conditions (negative air). 
  • Only Sheetrock and insulation up to 24" required removal. All impacted building materials were removed under controlled conditions (negative air). 
  • This photo series represents a vacant home where water historically infiltrated the unfinished space of the first floor (slab on grade construction). 
  • Areas were cleaned with HEPA vacuums and a fungicide applied to kill and residual mold spores. The final approach was applying a white encapsulate containing a long acting fungicide to prevent future mold growth (the historic water entry was repaired) and to ensure that any remaining spores were remediated.

  •  Only Sheetrock and insulation up to 24" required removal thus saving restoration costs as the entire wall did not require new sheetrock.
