Post Mold Remediation Raleigh NC
A post mold remediation inspection, also known as a mold clearance test, is conducted to ensure that all mold clean-up in the affected area has been accomplished, and will also assure that moldy dust and debris have not accidentally spread to other building areas such as heating, air conditioning, and ventilation systems.
The mold inspection should be the responsibility of a highly trained inspector who will first conduct a visual inspection of the area while noting the extent of removal and cleaning that took place. After the visual inspection, the mold remediation professional will perform a microscopic examination of all surface, air, dust, and vacuum samples collected on the premises by the professional inspector.
The results of a clearance test are not a guarantee that mold no longer exists in the house. The results only indicate the presence or absence of mold in the areas sampled at the time of the clearance test. Clearance is defined as air samples collected indoors being equal or less than the outdoor samples.
Post Mold remediation Inspection Responsibilities Include:
1. Visual Inspection
The inspector will ensure that the cleaned area, is clear of mold and mildew and that the appropriate fungicidal sealant is used to all cleaned areas and surfaces. He will also ensure that all contaminated materials have been disposed of properly to avoid future contamination.
2. Clearance Sampling
The inspector will use a swab to collect samples from any physical surface which seems to be dirty or discolored, even if it looks that all surfaces are clean. He will take at least one dust sample from each clean surface in every affected area.
During this process, he will pay close attention to those areas as well as equipment like HVAC systems which are at especially at risk to having been cross-contaminated due to improper or insufficient dust containment during mold clean-up. Finally, he will collect an air sample from one area that was inside the containment barrier, and one from an area that was outside the containment barrier deemed clean before remediation.
3. Overall Property Condition Assessment
The inspector will search for any ongoing conditions which could put the premises at risk for new mold problems such as unstopped leaks, clogged gutters, cracks in the building’s exterior or foundation, and so forth.
4. Remittance of Process Clearance Data
After the inspector has gathered all necessary data, he will send the swab and air samples to our laboratory for professional scientific analysis. When the lab returns the results to us confirming that your property is free of mold, we will provide an official certificate of clearance to you stating that your environment is entirely mold-free.
