How do you know when a mold job has been completed?
At SERVPRO of East Dayton/ Beavercreek, mold cleaning is a service that we take seriously because if not performed correctly the mold growth can spread rapidly to non-affected areas. We have important steps and precautions that we take into consideration when working on a mold remediation job. Out IICRC trained staff knows that it is important to contain the affected area with containment. The reason that we use containment barriers is so that the mold spores are not spreading throughout other areas of the home or business. After the affected area is contained, we then know that we can perform the mold-cleaning job.
Our SERVPRO professionals will:
- Remove all water damaged/mold-infested materials.
- Remove and replace the affected drywall.
- Clean and disinfect walls/carpets/ and other personal items.
- Filter the contaminated air to remove any debris or spores.
The best way to know that a mold job has been completed to its fullest is through a post-mold remediation inspection. The first inspection that our SERVPRO professionals will perform is a visual inspection to see if any mold is still present. The next inspection test that will be conducted is moisture measurements. The human eye is not always able to see if moisture is present. Our team will use moisture meters and infrared cameras to detect whether there is any moisture hidden behind walls or under flooring. The last part of the inspection is not always conducted but important. For a homeowner to be one hundred percent positive, we will bring out one of our industrial hygienist vendors to take air samples. The industrial hygienist takes separate samples in different areas of the building because not all areas are impacted to the same degree. Once all three parts of the mold inspection (visual, moisture measurements, air samples) are performed will give you a report that tells you the mold remediation process has been completed.
