What is Performed with a Mold Remediation Protocol
SERVPRO of Jefferson City will do a brief walk through of your home or business to inspect for possible mold growth. This is done to help you understand what will need to be done to remove any mold
If we suspect mold is present, we will contact a local trusted vendor to do a complete inspection. The vendor we use is licensed to identify types of mold and the amount of mold that is present. Our vendor will put together a full protocol which involves the following:
Interview – Review and discussion with the home or business owner of the property of current conditions which has led to the claim.
Site Assessment – A physical site assessment of the Property in the area(s) of concern to: visually assess the damage(s), retrieve temperature and RH readings, take air and direct samples for mold (if applicable), and gather room dimension to create room/floor drawings to identify the location(s) of concern.
- Air Sampling – The purpose of non-viable spore trap air sampling is to provide an approximation of the airborne microbial (fungal) spore concentrations. A minimum of one control sample is typically taken outside the most common used entrance into the building, then one or more air samples are collected in the areas of concern within the building. Elevated airborne spore concentrations may indicate an indoor microbial reservoir(s), or that cleaning of personal effects or the HVAC system(s), is a necessary component of a microbial remediation plan.
- Direct sampling – The purpose of direct sampling is to identify the type and concentration of microbial spores present on affected materials identified with suspect visible microbial growth. The sampling results are also used for reference for source contamination when air samples are taken.
