Mold and mildew inspections, mold testing and mold sampling by Spore°Tech Mold Investigations, LLC, Louisville KY 502-262-2022 may indicate a need for mold remediation in home or occupational workplace environment.
What is Mold Remediation?
Remediation is a term that can be generally described as a procedure of removing toxic or biohazard contaminants that pose human health consequences or threats to the environment from an infected area. Simply stated, remediation is a clean-up and disinfecting process.
Contaminants can be organic or inorganic materials. Toxic mold spores are considered by health care professionals to be organic or biohazard contaminants. Studies indicate that exposures to mold can cause a vast array of health problems in humans and animals. Remediation is necessary to eliminate or minimize the health risks posed by elevated levels of toxic mold spores in indoor air.
Federally Regulated protocols for mold inspections, mold testing, mold sampling and mold remediation have yet to be established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, OSHA or any other federal agency. Those agencies, however, have suggested guidelines for mold remediation. Most reputable mold remediation companies across the United States use these and the more formal guidelines established by the New York City Department of Health on May 7, 1993 (www.ci.nyc.ny.us/health). These steps and procedures spell out the appropriate methods to isolate the mold infected area, methods for debris removal and disposal while protecting the occupants of a building and the safety of the remediation workers.
Cost factors for remediation of indoor mold colonization varies depending on the level of the mold problem and associated damages. Costs of professional clean-up also vary depending on geographic location. Contact reputable remediation professionals in your area for estimated costs or bid pricing. For areas under 30 square feet, regular building maintenance personnel or individuals with appropriate knowledge and training in mold clean-up procedures can be done at minimal costs.
