Decontamination and cleaning of remaining structural component
At Mould Rescue we follow the IICRC S520 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mould Remediation.
What is involved in mould remediation?
Mould remediation involves mould clean up and removal a IICRC certified technician to address the damage and health risks associated with mould. Cleaning with bleach and water will not kill mould.
Mould remediation is best left to a professional trained to handle hazardous material and eliminate the spread of mould to other rooms. Expert mould remediation includes:
Identification is key to finding the source of the problem, this often involves a visual inspection by a trained technician as well as either surface or air quality testing that is then analysed by a lab. We will then formulate a mould remediation plan.
The source of the moisture problem is addressed and the affected area is closed off to avoid contaminating the rest of your home with mould spores stirred up during the removal process.
HEPA filters will be used to clean the air of mould spores and other particles. Appropriate PPE will be worn by our technicians during this process
Building materials and personal belongings in your home can be affected, so its essential to assess these things on a case by case basis. The safest and most effective way to ensure mould doesn’t return is to remove affected material.
It is imperative that cleaned and repaired items remain thoroughly dry. Remember, excessive moisture is how the issue started.
Following remediation, we search for any signs of recurrent water damage, mouldy odors or visible mould to ensure the cleanup has been successful.
