Although there are currently no Federal standards regarding mold remediation, Servicemaster of the Shore Area follows all available “guidelines” when providing reports, estimates, and services for the removal of mold contamination in buildings. There are currently several sets of guidelines available that apply to mold remediation. In addition to those guidelines, we have been trained as a “Certified Mold Remediator” with the Indoor Air Quality Association.
- We utilize Serum 1000 (www.serumsystem.com) on all mold remediation projects.
- Containment of affected areas during the remediation process is to limit release of mold into the air.
- Damp wipe and thoroughly dry non-porous ((hard) surfaces.
- Removal of damaged materials and seal in bags.
- HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Air) vacuum after materials have been thoroughly dried and contaminated materials removed.
- Our technicians use personal protection equipment (tyveks, gloves, respirators, etc.)
- Moisture control is the key to Mold Control!
- We recommend that testing be conducted after remediation is completed to determine the final levels of mold contamination that may be present at the site.
