The best way to deal with mold is to prevent it from happening. If the drying of a wet building materials is commenced within 24 hours, the chances of preventing mold growth are excellent. If building materials remain wet, it is inevitable that mold will start to grow. Therefore, addressing and eliminating moisture problems is the critical first step.
The ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning by Hi-Team mold remediation team adheres to the following procedures:
ASSESS THE DAMAGE
Our team uses a specialized moisture meter to check ceilings, woods floors, walls and other areas of your property for signs of moisture and dampness.
EXTRACT AND DRY
Using our state-of-the-art water extraction and dehumidification equipment, we confirm that the water is extracted from walls, cabinets, floors, carpets, upholstery or other fabrics. This greatly reduces the possibility of mold proliferation.
SEAL OFF ALL CONTAMINATED AREAS
In order to eliminate the risk of airborne spores spreading to unaffected areas, we seal off the affected area.
REMOVE AFFECTED MATERIALS
The drywall and other affected building materials in your home or building need to be professionally removed immediately.
HEPA-vacuum and seal contaminated areas.
If more than 10 square feet is affected, it may be necessary for the customer to hire an Industrial Hygienist to perform an assessment and write a protocol for services to be performed before any work can be performed by our team.
The Industrial Hygienist will perform a final evaluation once our team has completed the remediation. This is to insure that all work performed meets the standards and guidelines set forth by the restoration industry.
