What is Mold Remediation?
Removing mold isn’t as easy as it might seem. While you can sometimes see mold on surfaces, mold spores are constantly present and the issue can run deeper than what you see on the surface. Since this is the case, when someone has a mold issue it’s necessary to not only correct the issue and remove visible areas of mold growth, you have to eliminate the chance for mold to come back. This involves remediation, which is the practice of removing building materials and objects which are affected with mold so it doesn’t continue to grow in the building.
How is Mold Assessment Related to Mold Remediation?
A mold assessor will spend several hours examining key elements of the structure and also send off samples for testing to help determine if the home has a mold issue. The assessor will write up their findings in a report which states the level of mold growth, what types of mold are present and what steps should be taken to correct the issue. Assessors aren’t remediators because they have to provide an unbiased report of what needs to happen to remove the issue, and this separation of the two services ensures the customer gets a fair level of service and price for the work to be done.
When is Mold Remediation Required?
Only an assessment by a qualified individual will be able to definitively tell if remediation is required because their expertise on the ground combined with the lab results will give an informed consensus. However, if you’re experiencing any health issues due to the mold issue, if you’re seeing mold growing on surfaces and/or if you have had a major leak or flood, remediation is likely going to be necessary.
