The first step in professional mold remediation is to perform a mold assessment. In addition to determining if mold is present in your home, a mold assessment provides a plan for the mold remediation specialists, including what must be done, how it must be done, and how to tell if all the mold has been successfully removed.
What to Expect: Mold Assessment
A mold assessor will come to your home or business and perform a careful, detailed visual inspection of the premises. In addition to looking for visible mold growth and odor, they may use a moisture meter and, in rare cases, conduct a mold sampling. The assessor will also attempt to identify the underlying source of the moisture that is causing the mold growth.
To assess the level of mold contamination, the assessor may need to move furniture, lift or remove carpets, check behind wallpaper or paneling, and look inside ventilation ducts or wall cavities.
What to Expect: Mold Remediation Plan
Each mold remediation plan is customized. In general, the purpose of the plan is to provide details of the rooms and areas that are affected by mold, to recommend abatement or mold removal methods, and to provide a proposal for prevention.
The mold assessor will provide you with the mold remediation plan before the removal work begins to ensure you understand and agree with the scope of the project. They will also provide a copy of the plan to our mold remediation professionals, who will use the information to create a cost estimate and timeline for the work.
The next step is the actual removal of the mold. Learn more about our Mold Remediation Services in New York and Vermont.
