Mold Remediation

Mold Remediation/Sewage Backups
Mold and sewage backups contaminate indoor environments and create unhealthy and possibly dangerous conditions and degrade building materials.  1st Priority Restoration follows the EPA and IICRC approved S520 standards to safely contain, remove and replace the affected building structures to ensure the building is returned to the pre-loss condition. Our foremost concern is with the containment of the area and the safety of the technicians and the building occupants.

Moisture Identification
Moisture must be present in order for mold to grow.  We use thermal imaging cameras to identify moisture sources. Once the source problem is fixed we dry the area to insure mold does not return.  

Remediation Protocols
We employ third party environmental consultants to positively establish the presence of mold and write the remediation protocols needed to ensure the building is successfully returned to pre-loss condition.  Afterward, they will conduct the clearance testing to certify the structure is free of any abnormal mold growth.

Containment and Removal
Successful microbial remediation is partly about containment and removal.  With mold, the work area needs to be is contained so microbial contamination cannot be spread elsewhere. High efficiency air scrubbers are used to capture mold spores from the air while the structure is being cleaned and repaired. This insures no contamination is spread to the surrounding areas.  Sewage backups require complete removal and safe disposal of the affected structure's building materials.

EPA Registered Disinfectants
Another important aspect of remediation is using the proper materials to stop and remove all microbial activity.  Disinfectants that are registered with the Environmental Protection Agency ensure effectively stopping microbial activity which, along with cleaning and replacing building materials, ensures complete restoration.

    This service includes:
  • Air or surface sample in client specified areas
  • Humidity and condensation readings
  • Particle counts
  • Lab results and interpretation included

Mold testing will help determine the presence of mold in the air or on a given surface.

    Lab results include:
  • Mold count and identification
  • Airborne debris count
  • Fibrous particulate count

Without a complete inspection it will be very difficult to determine a correction or remediation strategy.
