Let’s talk a little more about how mold problems get out of hand. When buildings get wet, mold spores, which are always present in indoor and outdoor air, land on wet surfaces and start growing. After satisfying growing conditions, meaning once the mold has moisture, a food source (common building materials will do just fine), and time, the mold will begin to appear and thrive between twenty-four hours and ten days. And if this growth is left unchecked, it can quickly spiral out of control, creating potentially serious health hazards for building occupants.
The primary health hazard caused by mold is the inhalation of mycotoxins, which are dangerous byproducts of mold growth. Mycotoxins can survive even after removal of the mold, and the living space is dried out. Because of these health risks, it’s critical to call in mold remediation services as soon as you suspect a mold outbreak. These moisture problems that promote mold growth are frequently the result of three types of water intrusions:
- Emergency water damage from floods, broken pipes, and failed appliances
- On-going and unnoticed leaks from pipes, roofs, or around doors and windows
- Building design issues that cause high humidity levels which support mold growth
Here at Oklahoma Disaster Restoration, we’ve dealt with every possible type of mold outbreak countless times. Due to the continued media attention, the technology to remediate mold has increased tremendously. We train our restoration specialists in advanced mold remediation. We even take it a step further, requiring that a Certified Microbial Remediation Specialist supervises all jobs.
Oklahoma Disaster Restoration’s mold remediation procedures follow all EPA and OSHA guidelines, in addition to guidelines laid down by The Clean Trust (formerly IICRC), Restoration Industry Association (RIA), and other industry certification protocols. We require our technicians to wear personal protective equipment to prevent health complications when working in these mold-infested environments.
The Mold Remediation Process
- Our mold remediation team starts by creating a contained work environment
- Next, they set up negative air pressure and air scrubbers to protect occupants and prevent cross-contamination
- After that, the team safely demolishes and disposes of contaminated materials
- Once the mold is removed, the team begins a specialized deep-cleaning and sanitation process
- Depending on the type of mold and the infestation’s severity, other methods may be deployed, i.e., soda blasting, sealing, air washing, encapsulation, etc.
The official mold remediation guidelines strongly recommend that mold remediation be done in conjunction with an independent Environmental Consultant or Certified Industrial Hygienist.
