What You Should See After Mold Remediation in Springfield Missouri
We recently had someone ask us if you should still see any visible mold after the mold remediation work is complete. This was an honest question from a local Realtor that has been hiring the wrong mold remediation companies. She said that the last two times she had a mold problem at a client’s home, the mold remediation work failed the post inspection.
As you might guess, the correct answer is no. You shouldn’t still see any visible mold after a proper mold remediation is complete. According to EPA guidelines, the company you hire for mold cleanup should remove as much mold as possible during the mold remediation.
That means HEPA vacuuming mold spores and/or scrubbing boards with brushes, and towels. All while keeping the mold spores in a contained area using HEPA filtration air scrubbers to remove any aerosolized mold spores.
If a proper mold cleanup has taken place, an inspector doing a post mold removal inspection shouldn’t see any visible mold in any area that can be physically reached.
This is why it’s so important to hire professional mold specialists to perform a mold remediation in your home or office. A properly certified and trained mold specialist knows all the best practice steps for mold removal and will not leave behind visible mold colonies.
It takes thousands to millions of mold spores colonizing in one area for us to be able to see it with the naked eye. If you hired someone to perform a mold remediation in your home and they are leaving behind millions of visible mold spores, imagine how many mold spores are being left behind that aren’t visible. It’s a scary thought.
And it’s one of the main reasons you should ask a lot of questions before choosing a mold removal company to hire for any project. Especially since the quality of the work done can have such a big impact on your health.
Do what’s best for you and your family. If you’re a Realtor, do what’s best for your clients and treat any mold issues as if it were your own home. Hire someone who specializes in mold remediation, not someone who dabbles in mold along with other services. Hiring a mold removal expert can save you money and your health in the long run.
