When is Professional Mold Remediation Necessary?
Often one of the most asked questions is whether or not professional mold remediation is required. According to the US EPA, if the affected residential area is less than 10 square feet in size and does not exhibit any dangerous characteristics (health related symptoms) in the building occupants, then self-remediation and cleanup options may be considered. It is important, however, that in all cleanup procedures, proper protection be utilized and that whoever is directly handling the cleanup consult with the sources below for proper remediation techniques.
Professional remediation, on the other hand, is often recommended when the area exceeds 10 square feet, the mold is believed to be toxic in nature, or when cross-contamination is suspected.
Professional Mold Remediation Steps
The first step in a professional remediation project is to develop a remediation plan and determine the type of mold involved. Typically, this test and remediation plan is developed by an independent testing laboratory. Testing can cost anywhere from $500-$1,000 depending on the type of tests required and may take up to a week to compile the data. Although initially expensive, an accurate test can save thousands later down the road.
After acquiring a test and remediation plan, a remediation contractor such as The DAMEX Corporation is brought in to determine an abatement plan and submit an estimate to the insurance company and the homeowner. In this plan, our company, as a skilled mold remediation company, will detail the work to be provided on a line item basis.
In a typical remediation, we will detail the containment necessary, the worker protection required, the number of hours necessary and the equipment to be used. Although each professional remediation project is specific and unique, typical costs can range from $3,000 and up and will require very detailed work and time-intensive labor. This is why it is often a good idea to investigate the specifics of your insurance coverage and understand the process before making a decision.
