Mold Inspections, Testing, Removal, Lab Reports, and Certifications
Mold is a result of a water intrusion and moisture problem within a structure. Mold can rapidly reproduce spreading invisable spores and toxins throughout your home and/or workplace.
It is essential to have a Mold Muncher certified technician perform a thorough inspection to determine the types of molds and the levels of contamination. Performing air quality testing, thermal imaging, closed wall cavity inspections, sampling, and lab reports to generate a remediation protocol for your property.
Mold Muncher’s remediation process follows IICRC S-520 standards by containing the affected areas and by using the latest technologies in air filtration systems and anti-microbial treatments to provide a safe indoor environment at you home and/or work place.
STEPS OF A MOLD REMEDIATION JOB
Step 1 - Property inspection and education of the occupants as required. A visual inspection of all areas from the attic down to the crawl space including the parking areas and the landscape drainage. Water issues in these areas can cause mold and water damage. Upon inspection, we talk to the property owner to inform them about any potential health-related concerns, this is part of our full service process. Collecting information on past problems and repairs can also help identify the cause of leakage areas.
Step 2 - Sampling
Taking samples in a standardized method will identify the types of mold and the concentrations of contamination throughout the structure. The samples are then taken to a certified lab to be analyzed for the printed mold report.
Step 3 - Lab Report and Remediation Plan
After we receive the lab report and check the results of the contamination, we compile a remediation plan. This plan will lay out the scope of the work that needs to be done and bid pricing to complete the job, including all the reconstruction by a licensed contractor.
Step 4 - Review
We will review our plan and pricing with the property owner so that they have a clear understanding of the scope and cost to complete the project.
Step 5 - Complete the Remediation Plan
All work on the project will be completed as per the plan and bid pricing. We pride ourselves on a high level of quality and safety.
Step 6 - Clearance Testing
Re-sample the work areas by taking samples to be tested by a certified lab. When the report passes the industry standard required for a clearance, the job is categorized as a “pass”. If the test results do NOT meet the requirements, it is considered a fail. In the event that the site fails the test, the sanitization process is repeated and new samples are taken until a pass is attained.
Step 7 - Clearance
When all of the remediation has been completed, we provide an overview of the project by discussing all of the details of the job and paperwork. A clearance certification is then issued.
BEWARE: Most mold removal bids do not include any of the reconstruction repairs. They may complete the job leaving your home with no dry wall and only 2×4 framing to look at.
