Aside from water used for extinguishing fires, mold growth is usually the result of three types of water intrusions:
- Emergency water damage from floods, broken pipes, failed appliances, etc.
- On-going and unnoticed leaks from pipes, roofs or around doors and windows.
- Building design issues that cause high humidity levels that can support mold growth.
In fact, any saturated materials have the ability to quickly breed mold, regardless of weather conditions, and some molds can become visible after only 48 hours. In order to prevent mold growth, wet building materials and contents must be dried as soon as possible.
Swartz Contracting’s trained technicians can locate the moisture source and recommend a course of action to eliminate the problem quickly. The remediation process involves controlled demolition and safe disposal of contaminated materials as well as thorough cleaning and sanitizing of any affected areas. A variety of other techniques appropriate to the project conditions may be required.
Our mold remediation procedures follow all EPA and OSHA guidelines the ANSI-Approved Institute of Inspection, Cleaning & Restoration Certification (IICRC) S520 Standard and other industry certification protocols. We will remediate any mold in your structure and document the entire project, which will serve as a permanent record showing that the project was completed according to the proper Standard of Care. All of our water losses can be verified through a third party to insure proper drying procedures and time frame.
Mold remediation may be done in conjunction with an Environmental Consultant or Certified Industrial Hygienist.
