Mold Assessment

If you suspect you have a mold “problem” assessment may or may not involve testing.  In fact the EPA says “[i]n most cases, if visible mold growth is present, sampling is unnecessary”.  The first step is to understand why there is visible mold growth, which means identifying and correcting the source of moisture. Once that has been corrected, a decision can be made how to address the mold contamination and whether testing is required.  The standard of care is that the company providing any testing should not be the company providing mold remediation services.

The Standard of Care

Whether there is heavy structural damage from a house fire or some degree of smoke damage from a kitchen fire, promptly mitigating damage to restorable finishes, fixtures and personal property can increase the likelihood that an important item of smoke damaged personal property can be fully restored to a pre-loss condition. It may also mean that smoke or fire damaged finishes and finishes can not only be fully restored, but that the damage restoration process can be completed more quickly and often less expensively, resulting in a return to your home and your normal routine sooner.

Mold Prevention

Prevention is not controlled by spraying a chemical on the mold, covering the mold with an encapsulant or coating a surface with some sort of antimicriobial after the mold has been removed.  The only correct solution to prevent mold from growing is to control the accumulation of excess moisture on a surface providing a food source for mold.  Anything less and mold growth will return.  This is the case because mold spores are ubiquitious and once a surface is remediated of visible growth, spores will settle on that surface. If provided with the correct temperature, oxygen, food source and water-they will germinate and begin the process again.
