Assessment

When doing assessment on a mold contamination situation, a typical first step is the visual inspection of the home as well as the suspected areas of growth. We look for visible mould staining, as well as the source of the water that would be feeding the mold. We also look on the outside of your home for sources of intrusion, improper grading, etc..

We will take moisture readings, particle counts, barometric and psychometric readings as well if Asbestos is present it would also be noted and dealt with during the remediation process.

If the situation requires we can also do swab tests and have a 3rd party air sampling taken so that the level of mould spores as well as the family of mold can be determined. Following the remediation clearance testing could also be performed.

Containment

Once a scope of work is prepared, the first step in a mould abatement is to contain the area of work so that the rest of the home or business is unaffected.

This will usually include the shutting down of the HVAC system, sealing off areas with polyurethane containment walls, and placing the affected areas under negative air pressure using ducted air scrubbers.

Filtration

We use top industry equipment for our air filtration and negative air machines. Brand names such as DRI-EZE and PHOENIX that are the industry leaders.

Air scrubbers can treat a large amount of air volume, in many cases rooms will be completely filtered by 4-8 air changes an hour

Removal

Our company uses engineering controls such as controlled demolition, dustless tools, and HEPA filtration and negative air during the removal stage of mold abatement.

During the abatement, there may be asbestos containing material (ACM) present. If that is the case we will also be performing asbestos abatement as per (Reg 278-05)
