Commercial Mold Remediation in Florida
Certified mold removal professionals serving Florida
Mold growth of any type inside a building is unhealthy. Even when molds spores do not contain hazardous mycotoxins, they will contain chemicals that cause and agitate allergies.
It's not uncommon for a lawsuit involving mold litigation to award $50,000, $200,000, or more per settlement. In 2005, there were an estimated 10,000 mold-related cases pending in United States courts.
In addition to the health risks, mold also leads to significant damage to everything it grows on, and can even lead to serious structural damage.
At Baxter Restoration, we specialize in certified mold removal and remediation in Florida.
Code-Compliant Mold Removal & Remediation in Florida
Unlike other hazardous materials such as asbestos, there are no clear regulations for "clearance levels" when conducting mold removal and remediation in Florida. However, the EPA has provided these goals for contractors seeking to perform successful mold remediation:
The key to mold control is moisture control. All sources of moisture should be identified and fixed during the remediation process.
Visible mold, materials damaged by mold, and visible mold hidden in closets, cabinets, and in wall cavities should be removed. At the end of the remediation, moldy odors should not be present. All mold -- even dead mold -- presents a health hazard to building occupants.
Because vibrations during mold remediation will shake loose millions of spores, a building's overall mold spore count can spike. If left alone, these spores can hang in the air for weeks. At the end of the remediation, sampling should show that the concentrations of mold spores outside of the home should be similar to those found inside, according to EPA guidelines.
After the mold remediation has been completed, the contractor should return to the site, inspecting for further signs of water damage or mold growth.
A HEALTHIER INDOOR
AIR QUALITY IS DEMONSTRATED
Occupants of the building should have no building-specific health complaints or physical symptoms related to mold when returning to the treated space.
Mold Removal & Remediation
Mold damage is a complicated building problem that requires a trained, professional contractor.
Different species of mold may require different safety requirements and remediation methods. In some cases, unaided visual examination may not be enough to tell if a stain is mold growth or another issue.
Our Certified Mold Remediators (CMR) have been trained to remove existing mold in your structure, using a variety of equipment and mold cleanup methods. Work areas are typically contained to limit the release of allergens and other potentially harmful contaminants.
HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuums are used for final cleanup of remediation areas after materials have been thoroughly dried and contaminated materials removed.
HEPA vacuums are also used for cleanup of dust that may have settled on surfaces outside the remediation area.
