  REMEDIATION PROCESS OVERVIEW

Remediators MUST follow the mold protocol and work plan. Following the procedures outlined in the work plan is one of the ways to perform a remediation.

The process used to do the remediation and removal of contaminated materials is as follows:

  • Demolition and removal of all contaminated surfaces
  • If there are any wall openings created by removing contaminated wall four (4) feet and down, they will need to be covered with poly, this will help ensure that the exposed frame (beams) will be protected;
  • If exterior walls have been exposed, after the interior wall has been removed a moisture barrier should be installed by covering the opening with 6mil poly;
  • Items such as sheetrock will be bagged in 6mil poly trash bags;
  • Sharp objects such as metal corners need to be carefully disposed of, since such items can lacerate bags and skin;
  • Nails that are protruding from the contaminated building material should be either bent down, or removed and thrown away by being wrapped in 6mil poly. This will prevent injuries if stepped on and help prohibit cross contamination;

It is recommended that at the end of the work day, remediators use an anti-microbial as a fog (wet mist) to bring the airborne levels of mold spores down. Also, on the following work day the remediator(s) should HEPA vacuum the floor before starting work process again. This will help ensure that all mold spores that fell from the fog are removed. This process should be repeated each day

Mold

Mold or mould, also sometimes referred to as mildew, is a fungal growth that develops on wet materials. Mold is a natural part of the environment and plays an important part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves and dead trees; indoors, mold growth should be avoided.

Mold inspection is, for the most part, a visual inspection of a house. … A typical mold inspection involves the inspector talking to the property owner about any areas where they have seen mold, or where there have been moisture problems or water damage in the past.

Mold Cleanup and removal methods

The purpose of cleanup is to eliminate mold and remove contaminated materials. Killing mold with a biocide is insufficient, since chemicals and proteins causing reactions in humans remain in dead mold. The following methods are used.
  • Evaluation: Before remediation, the area is assessed to ensure safety, clean up the entire moldy area, and properly approach the mold. The EPA provides the following instructions:
  • HVAC cleaning: Should be done by a trained professional.
  • Protective clothing: Includes a half- or full-face respirator mask. Goggles with a half-face respirator mask prevent mold spores from reaching the mucous membranes of the eyes. Disposable hazmat coveralls are available to keep out particles down to one micrometer, and protective suits keep mold spores from entering skin cuts. Gloves are made of rubber, nitrile, polyurethane, or neoprene.
  • Dry brushing or agitation device: Wire brushing or sanding is used when microbial growth can be seen on solid wood surfaces such as framing or underlayment (the subfloor).
  • Dry-ice blasting: Removes mold from wood and cement; however, this process may spray mold and its byproducts into surrounding air.
  • Wet vacuum: Wet vacuuming is used on wet materials, and this method is one of those approved by the EPA.
  • Damp wipe: #MoldRemoval from non-porous surfaces by wiping or scrubbing with water and a detergent and drying quickly.
  • HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) vacuum: Used in remediation areas after materials have been dried and contaminated materials removed; collected debris and dust is stored to prevent debris release.
  • Debris disposal: Sealed in the remediation area, debris is usually discarded with ordinary construction waste.
