Mould Removal and Remediation
Where there is moisture, there is potential for mould growth.
If mould is found within a property, the cause is likely to be a source of moisture. To ensure the correct steps are taken for mould removal and remediation thorough inspection must be undertaken to identify any hidden mould growth, as growth can be behind flooring or walls or cabinetry. This includes tracking and rectifying the cause of the moisture problem whether from a leak or storm damage.
Mould is toxic, and if not addressed can severely impact your health.
Juvenaire technicians are trained to identify the source of moisture causing the mould growth. Once rectified, it is less likely that there would be a recurrence of mould.
An on-site inspection is the most crucial step in identifying and determining the best plan of action for treatment.
Although identifying visual mould is important, knowing the source of the mould is just as vital. Without identifying the moisture source, even the best removal and remediation methods can become ineffective as mould will eventually resurface if not treated accurately.
Technicians will track the moisture source and inspect suspected areas (such as behind walls and flooring) to formulate the most effective remediation processes.
The Remediation Plan
A mould remediation plan usually includes:
- Identification and correction of mould growth conditions such as moisture and humidity
- the use of appropriate personal protective equipment by technicians
- Using speciality equipment to remove airborne mould spores
- Setting up containment to enclose affected areas to stop the mould from spreading to clean areas
- Steps to safely and effectively remove mould affected building materials and contents
- Pack-outs (if required), restoration of affected contents and its secure storage
- Final cleaning, decontamination, drying and clearance testing.
As a part of Juvenaire’s mould removal services, we collect and test mould samples to:
- Ascertain the true extent of mould contamination
- Species identification to determine the toxicity and health risks to humans
- Post remediation clearance testing for quality control
Final Clearance Testing
Several air and surface samples are taken in the remediated area for testing. Juvenaire’s team of air quality specialists carry out all the appropriate microbial testing. Some mould samples are sent to an independent laboratory for further testing to verify safe mould ecology post remediation.
