POST MOLD REMEDIATION
A Post Remediation Verification Inspection, also called a Mold Clearance Test, is conducted in order to ensure that all mold clean-up in the work area has been effectively and correctly done, and also to ensure that moldy dust and debris have not accidentally been distributed to other building areas, or into heating, air conditioning and/or ventilation systems.
The Inspection is the responsibility of a highly trained inspector who will first conduct a visual inspection of the work area, noting the extent of removal and cleaning which has been accomplished. After the visual inspection, he will conduct a microscopic examination of all surface, air, dust and vacuum samples which have been collected on the premises.
Specifically the inspector’s responsibilities include:
1. VISUAL INSPECTION
The inspector will ensure that the area which has been cleaned, as well as all other building areas, are totally clear of mold and mildew, and that the appropriate fungicidal sealant has been applied to all the cleaned areas. He will also ensure that any and all contaminated materials have been disposed of properly.
2. CLEARANCE SAMPLING
Using a swab, the inspector will collect samples from any physical surface which seems to be in any way dirty or discolored. Even if he establishes that all surfaces are clean, he will collect at least one dust sample from each cleaned surface in every major area. During this process he will pay particular attention to those areas (or to equipment like HVAC systems) that are at special risk because they have been cross-contaminated as a result of improper or insufficient dust containment during clean-up. He will, finally, collect an air sample from one area that was inside the containment barrier, and one sample from an area that was outside the containment barrier and deemed clean before remediation.
3. OVERALL PROPERTY CONDITION ASSESSMENT
The inspector will search for, and report on, 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, and so forth.
4. REMITTANCE OF PROCESS CLEARANCE DATA
After the inspector has gathered all necessary data, he will send the samples (swab samples and/or air samples) to our laboratory for scientific analysis. When the lab returns the lab results to us, confirming that your property is free of mold, we will provide you with an official certificate of clearance stating that your environment is completely mold-free.
