An inspection must be completed on visible and non-visible mold. This inspection allows certified experts to assess the affected areas. The mold inspections are conducted by IICRC certified mold inspectors. Professional companies value their customers and guarantee the clients an entire free visual inspection of the property.
Perform an AQT (Air Quality Test) or swab testing if necessary. An Air Quality Test must be conducted only on a non-visible mold for a couple of reasons. If the mold isn't visible, an air quality test must be conducted so as to detect what quite a mold is present and therefore the levels of mold count, which is employed to work out the severity of the mold.
It is advised to valued customers to not allow anyone to open any walls or touch the affected area, thanks to the very fact that you simply will disturb the mold removal and make secondary contamination.
Complete the initial cleanup by vacuuming up the debris. Thoroughly clean the wet/dry vac afterward by removing the filter and washing out the tank, hose, and attachments with the bleach-and-water solution.
Vacuum up moldy debris with a typical wet/dry vacuum. Buy an additional length of hose and run it out the window so you'll keep the vacuum outside to avoid further spore spread.
Scrub the surface mold stains from walls and wood trim with a mix of 1 qt. water and 1/2 cup bleach mold cleaner to mold detection. Use a soft brush and work until signs of the mold disappear. After scrubbing the surfaces, simply allow the bleach solution to still penetrate the surfaces and dry.
Wipe off, but don't RINSE these surfaces. Set trim in direct sunlight to dry. Scrub the concrete with TSP or automatic dishwashing detergent.
Our project manager who had completed the inspection will send over an in-depth scope of labor for the mold removal project. The scope of labor will include the right steps that have got to be completed to perform the mold removal, alongside an estimate of associated costs.
