Mold Remediation Protocol

"Healthier Air Starts Here" (407) 383-9459

Our Mold Remediation Protocol
A Remediation Protocol outlines the needed actions for any necessary mold remediation.

Each plan is individually prepared based on the Indoor Environmental Consultants Mold Assessment of the property the size and area of the mold contamination.

The Remediation Protocol will specify the remediation containment strategy, decontamination areas, negative air pressure and air filtration(scrubbing), equipment utilization, personnel protective equipment, specific cleaning protocols, project completion requirements, site-specific safety plan and post remediation verification inspection / mold remediation clearance testing that will confirm the post remediation goals have been met.

Mold assessment and remediation are techniques used in occupational health: mold assessment is the process of identifying the location and extent of the mold hazard in a structure, and mold remediation is the process of removal and/or cleanup of mold from an indoor environment.

The goal of remediation is to remove or clean contaminated materials in a way that prevents the emission of fungi and dust contaminated with fungi from leaving a work area and entering an occupied or non-abatement area, while protecting the health of workers performing the remediation. 

Our protocols are based on the IICRC ANSI-Approved S520 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation as well as the inspection legislation (SB2234) Florida Governor Christ signed into law in 2007 that takes effect in 2010. 

Our primary response to fungal contamination in buildings is the prompt remediation of contaminated material and infrastructure repair. The simplest and most expedient remediation that properly and safely removes fungal growth from buildings will be prescribed by Microshield in each specific protocol written.

In all situations, the underlying cause of water accumulation must be rectified or the fungal growth will recur. Emphasis will be placed on preventing contamination through proper building maintenance and prompt repair of water damaged areas.
