The Role That Inspection And Assessment Play During Mold Damage Remediation In Boulder
Mold Damage Remediation
Assessing the environment and taking appropriate safety precautions is necessary during mold damage remediation. Remember, mold can lead to health effects, and that is why restoration services providers use the right Personal Proactive Equipment (PPE) while at the site. The degree of mold contamination usually determines the equipment that we use to attend to such situations in Boulder.
After a mold damage inspection and assessment in Boulder, we share a report with our customers. The report usually outlines the scope of the inspection and points out the areas where we did the inspection. It shows the water source and the procedures to follow to stop the moisture intrusion problems. Based on the source of the water, we can also provide information on the possible contaminants on the site.
The goals our SERVPRO technicians during mold remediation are to prevent further exposure and further damage to your property. So, before we build containment and prevent spreading contamination to clean areas, we wear the right PPE. We need protective clothing, a respirator, gloves, and goggles or any suitable eye protection. When we are working, we may need to decontaminate materials and equipment. That is why we establish decontamination rooms and clean rooms. Containment involves sealing HVAC vents, setting up a negative pressure, and installation of containment barriers.
When our SERVPRO technicians are performing mold removal, the material or the surface we are dealing with usually determines the method we use. While it is possible to clean nonporous contents with mold growth, we discard porous materials with the mold contamination. If the nonporous surface is dry and has loose mold fragments, we can use a detergent solution to damp-wipe the area or perform HEPA vacuuming. When the fragments are firmly attached to the surfaces, we might use abrasive techniques such as sanding and wire brushing to remove the mold.
