Commercial Mold 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.
