If your home has mold growing inside it is usually after a water intrusion problem. Water intrusion can result from storm damage, equipment failures (hot water heater, AC units, refrigerators, dish washers, and toilets), plumbing failures of excessive humidity. Check the area where there is mold growth for moisture after it has been identified.
These conditions may require a qualified Indoor Air Quality/Environmental Professional (Licensed Mold Assessment Consultant) to inspect the home/building for mold growth and water damage problems. They will conduct a "mold assessment", which is an inspection of the your home/building to evaluate whether mold growth is present and to what extent. Samples may be taken to determine the amounts and types of mold present, in some cases sampling might not be necessary. When mold cleanup is necessary a licensed mold consultant can provide you with a mold remediation protocol. It provides methods to be used, estimated quantities and locations of material to be remediated. Mold remediation is the cleanup and removal of mold growth from surfaces and/or contents in the home/building. Licensed mold remediation contractors must follow the mold remediation protocol. Before a remediation project can be deemed successful, a mold assessment consultant must conduct a post-remediation assessment. This inspection ensures that the area is free from all visible mold and wood rot. The assessment consultant must give you a passed clearance report documenting the results of the inspection. After mold remediation project is completed both the remediation contractor and the licensed mold assessment consultant must sign and give you a Certificate of Mold Damage Remediation.
