Five Questions You Should Ask Before Hiring A Cocoa Mold Removal Company
If you need or are considering hiring a Cocoa mold removal company, there are a few questions you should ask in addition to questions related to their insurance, background, reviews, etc. Below are five questions we recommend asking every contractor before agreeing to work with them.
Are your employees certified and trained?
This one seems like a “no-brainer,” but believe it or not, there are no official Cocoa mold remediation or indoor air quality certification requirements in the state of Florida. Unfortunately, this means that there are many companies underqualified to handle your mold problem as it relates to your health.
Our employees hold a certification in Water Damage Restoration and a certification for Applied Microbial Remediation through the IICRC.
What chemicals do you use to kill mold?
The products used to clean and rid surfaces of mold should not be dangerous to your health. Instead, proper remediation aims to mitigate an already toxic environment and not expose you and your family to more toxic chemicals.
Do you test before and after performing mold remediation?
The answer should always be Yes. To properly diagnose and remedy a mold problem, the Cocoa mold remediation contractor must know mold levels before and after remediation. In most instances, the person or company performing the mold test should not be the person or company responsible for conducting any mold testing. Successful remediation is determined by the outcome of the post-remediation clearance testing, and the contractor should not determine the success of the remediation.
Do you wear protective equipment and clothing?
Again, this one should be a “no-brainer.” Still, you would be surprised at the number of non-certified Cocoa mold remediation and water mitigation companies we encounter who completely ignore “PPE.” This question alone should tell the customer that the contractor does not consider toxic mold to be a health risk and be reason enough not to hire them.
What are your containment practices?
A professional Cocoa mold cleanup company should be able to walk potential customers through their containment practices. Processes such as; how they seal the infected area and quarantine the moldy area from the rest of the home, what types of negative airflow, fans, HEPA filtration and HEPA vacuums they use, and how they clean and clean sanitize their equipment from job to job to avoid contamination.
What is mold remediation?
Mold remediation is the process of removal and/or clean up of mold from an indoor environment, such as a home or a business.
If a home or a business has serious mold damage, it is best to hire mold remediation/removal professionals as specialized equipment and methods may be required to remove the mold completely.
How does mold grow?
Mold requires nutrients, water, oxygen and favorable temperatures to grow. Nutrients for mold are present in dead organic material such as wood, paper or fabrics; mold can also derive nutrients from some synthetic products such as paints and adhesives. Mold requires moisture, although some mold species can obtain that moisture from moist air when the relative humidity is above 70 percent.
Many molds thrive at normal indoor temperatures; few if any molds are able to grow below 40 F or above 100 F. Outside this range molds may remain dormant or inactive; they may begin to grow again when the temperature is more favorable. Temperatures well above 100 F will kill mold and mold spores, but the exact temperature required to kill specific species is not well established.
How long does the mold removal process take?
The time it takes for the mold removal process depends on many factors such as how much mold is present, where the mold is growing (behind walls, etc.), and the materials it grows on. Most mold removal (remediation) takes anywhere from 1 day to 5 days.
Do I need to hire a mold remediation/removal expert to remove mold, or can I do it myself?
Anyone can remove mold from a home or a business as long as they understand that when you disturb mold (clean it, cut it out, etc.), you will distribute the mold spores throughout the house, creating new mold issues.
The only way to correctly remove the mold is to build correctly a containment using negative pressure and using the correct personal protective equipment. You will also need to follow the IICRC S-520 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation, and hire an industrial hygienist to make sure that the mold is removed.
