Mold remediation in South Florida
When you are looking at hiring a contractor or mold specialist for the cleanup of mold and mold remediation to any surface in your home, you need to make sure that the person you are dealing with is a professional and has the right experience you require for the completion of the job. While many contractors claim to have the experience, you require many of them may not have dealt with large-scale mold problems before.
Any easy way to make sure that you have the right person for the job is to check their references thoroughly. You can also ask trusted friends and family member for referrals. Additionally, those dealing with and handling problematic mold areas should be working with predetermined guidelines set out by the relevant health and oversight authorities. Many of these organizations are overseen by government regulations.
You will also need to inform the person you have contracted to work in your home or building if you suspect that the mold may have infiltrated the ventilation or air conditioning systems of the building they are working in. This is especially true if you suspect that you are dealing with black mold. Black mold treatment is specific to the type of mold you have in your home. You also need to take note that should you suspect that the ventilation system in your building has been contaminated you will need to make sure that the system is not used. Running a ventilation system which has been contaminated with mold could mean that you are aiding in the spread of the mold to other areas of the building which were previously not affected by the mold.
Suspicion for hidden Mold
Not all molds are visible to the naked eye. You may walk into a building or room and suspect that the area has been infested with a mold but you may not be able to see it. In these cases, the room would smell moldy but there would be no evidence of mold growth. Alternatively, you may already know that the area has suffered previous water damage; in this case, you are sure that there would be some sort of mold growth within the building. Those living on the property may also frequently report health issues and problems.
While you may not be able to see all molds and mold spores, you need to know that molds can be hidden from plain sight. These molds can be hidden behind areas of dry walking, underneath wallpaper or on the reverse side of your ceiling panels. Other areas which are prone to the buildup of mold include carpeted areas and padded walls. If you have leaking pipes or pipes which are prone to condensation, these could also be susceptible to the buildup of mold.
One of the many questions asked by home and business owners is whether the mold they have found needs to be tested. In many of the cases, if the mold is clearly visible and growing, there is no need for testing to take place. Due to certain limitations which have been set out for the treatment of mold spores and mold as well as mold cleanup, there are not sampling kits available to test compliance with regulations and standards.
It is, however, important to note that surface testing and sampling can be used to check if any surface or room has been properly treated and clean for any mold. It is vital that sampling of mold and mold spores be conducted only by professionals. These professionals will have the required experience needed to conduct thorough testing in line with stated regulations and protocols. All sample analysis would need to be treated and tested following the relevant
What is Mold
What is Mold
In order to understand how to effectively deal with mold, we first need to understand exactly what mold is and how we can deal with it. The most important aspect in dealing with the control of mold is dealing with the control of moisture in the home or commercial building environment. When dealing with a home environment you need to make sure that you clean up a wet and water-damaged area within 48 hours. This will ensure that you are able to effectively prevent the growth of any mold in the area which was damaged by water.
When molds grow they produce microscopic spores. Whenever the mold is disturbed in any way, these spores waft through the air. Disturbances of the mold can be from the slightest movements such as simply walking past an affected area. As the air continues to be disturbed, the particles will continue to move through the area until they come into contact with a moist surface.
Once contact has been made with a moist surface the mold spores will sprout. In order for mold to grow the plant will digest whichever material is has landed on. This ensures its survival in even the hardest conditions. Molds can grow on an endless variety of surfaces from paper to foods and woods. One of the most important things to remember is that mold can grow indoors on any surface if there is sufficient moisture in the air. This can be more prevalent in areas when moisture problems have been left untreated and unresolved. You will need to keep in mind that there is no sure way to completely deal with mold and the resulting mold spores in any environment indoors. The only way to control and limit the mold growth indoors is to ensure that you control the moisture within the indoor environment.
When should I call in a professional?
While it is easy to handle minimal mold build-up by yourself, there will come a time when you need to call in the services of a professional company to assist. In determining when the right time to call in a professional is, you will need to take a look at the size of the area which is affected. To do this you will need to conduct a proper mold inspection
One of the most commonly used rules when dealing with mold is that if the area you are dealing with is less than 10 square feet or a patch roughly 3 feet by 3 feet; you can easily and effectively deal with the mold problem yourself. However, if the area you are dealing with far exceeds this size perimeter you will need to consult a professional. These larger areas usually also include mold damage to schools as well as large commercial buildings.
The one thing you need to keep in mind is that no matter how small or large the problem is you are dealing with when dealing with mold remediation you will need to act fast. This is because any area in which mold is growing is already damaged. Leaving mold for extended periods of time can result in excessive damage. One of the clear examples is that a leaky windowsill will produce mold and this mold will in turn begin to rot away the frame of the window.
