We can help with:
…should be made when mold contamination is discovered, a building moisture inspection should be conducted promptly. Normally done by a 3rd party IEP or IH.
…can require a multi-disciplined approach involving specialized experts from various fields. Also includes but is not necessarily limited to gathering information for moisture problems and potential mold contamination.
WORK PLANS & PROTOCOLS
…performed by the contractor and IEP provide the basis for developing plans for containment, hazardous or regulated materials, safety and health provisions, contaminated material removal and handling; and ect.
post remediation evaluation
…should be conducted by remediators to evaluate whether or not remediation has been completed. This evaluation involves implementing internal quality control procedures.
post remediation verification
…should be performed by an independent IEP. If the IEP conducting any activity such as assessment or post-remediation verification is not independent from the remediator, they should disclose in writing to the client that they are deviating from the Standard.
A Few Things
Having discovered mold in your home may be alarming. Don’t disturb the affected area and call a professional today.
SAFETY & HEALTH
When it has been determined that an indoor environment is contaminated with mold, remediation workers shall be protected from exposure.
Engineering controls, administrative controls, and work practices are the primary means for preventing exposure. Appropriate respiratory protection or other personal protective equipment (PPE) shall be used in conjunction with engineering controls to protect workers when engineering controls are insufficient, as indicated in 29 CFR 1910.134(a)(1). Reasonable efforts should be made to inform occupants of and protect them from similar exposure as a result of investigation and remediation activities.
& WORK PROCESS
In circumstances where an entire building or system is fully involved as a result of Condition 3 mold contamination
Or when the scope of work can be determined without sampling or independent IEP inspection and assessment, engagement of an IEP for assessment may not be necessary. Furthermore, some mitigation services may be initiated before or during assessment of conditions or performance of remediation processes. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if health issues are discovered or apparent that seem to be related to the actual or suspected mold contamination, an IEP or other appropriate professional should be engaged by the property owner and the extent and Condition (1, 2 or 3) to which areas of the structure, systems and contents are potentially mold-contaminated should be assessed, documented, and reported to the client. To avoid all conflict of interest during a mold remediation, the home or business owner should always have a 3rd party non biased IEP involved in the process. Having this documented by a 3rd party IEP is the best way to protect all parties involved.
The spread of mold contamination should be controlled as close as practical to its source.
Methods of controlling the spread of contamination can be by use of containment and air filtration. Initial moisture mitigation services may be performed to control amplification, while ensuring that mold contamination does not spread from more-contaminated to less or non-contaminated areas. Erect containment in a manner that mitigates the potential for cross-contamination and exposing workers and occupants to contamination. Consider whether floors, walls, and ceilings require a polyethylene barrier erected over them; or if they can be left uncovered for later cleaning.
Physically removing mold contamination is the primary means of remediation.
Mold contamination should be physically removed from the structure, systems and contents to return them to Condition 1. Attempts to kill, encapsulate or inhibit mold instead of proper source removal generally are not adequate. Remediated structures, systems, and contents can be considered clean (post-remediation evaluation) when contamination, unrestorable contaminated materials, and debris have been removed, and surfaces are visibly free of dust. The term “visibly” can include direct and indirect observation (e.g., using a white or black towel to wipe a surface to observe for cleanliness). Also, remediated areas should be free of malodors associated with microorganisms. At that point, it is probable that the structure, systems, and contents have been returned to Condition 1.
After a post-remediation evaluation, the remediated structures, systems, and contents are ready for post-remediation verification. When verification that the structure, systems, and contents have been returned to Condition 1 and when it is requested or required, a post remediation verification should be performed by an independent IEP. If the IEP conducting any activity such as assessment or post-remediation verification is not independent from the remediator, they should disclose in writing to the client that they are deviating from the Standard.
