Biological Health Services: Mold Removal and Remediation
Mold removal cannot be quoted over the phone. A mold inspection is essential to determine the scope of work that should be recorded. The process also helps ascertain how much of the drywall should be eliminated, whether or not it will be required to Ice Blast the mold and the relevant method to eliminate the mold. The inspection should help understand how the mold growth happened (its origin) and how the reasons for the mold could be fixed effectively to ensure that your home remains safe and healthy.
Biological Health Services will have one of its trained and experienced inspectors carry out a free mold inspection as well as provide you the free estimate. An environmentalist or hygienist will be introduced if the inspector believes the scope is more prominent than expected or unclear. The 3rd party participation addresses the conflict of interest as they aren’t paid for elimination, but are paid directly from the customer to detect and scope the issue.
Sometimes, air sampling or mold testing will be carried out to make sure your indoor air quality is beneficial for you and your family and also to figure out whether the mold spores have spread into other regions of the house. Mold spores are microscopic, so without air testing it is impossible to determine how far they have reached in your home. The mold expert and third party hygienist will have to execute testing and inspection before producing a report of the necessary steps. The experts will also test/inspect site during the mold removal process and upon completion of the whole process.
When the mold specialists arrive on site, they bring with them tools that will help in doing a proper mold inspection. Without these, a proper mold inspection can’t be done. These include hygrometers, thermal imaging cameras, air sampling machines, moisture meters, and mold swabs. A combination of the right equipment with a trained accredited, and experienced mold removal & remediation contractor are essential to ascertain the scope needed to handle the removal and remediation safely and efficiently. This combination is also important in identifying the causes of the mold and to come up with the best approach to fix them.
Sometimes mold can be washed or wiped down, depending on the surface and how heavy the mold has penetrated. In case you have any doubts, contact experienced, trained and certified Biological Health Services. The mold specialists will also update you throughout the procedure and provide a report and pictures of the whole mold removal and remediation process. Once the job is completed, they will give you a completion report.
