What Is Mold Remediation

Mold Remediation TampaMold Remediation is a popular term used in the Clearwater, Tampa and surrounding areas in Florida. Mold remediation is the process of removing mold from homes and businesses. Successful mold remediation or mold removal includes performing a post verification test or PRV to ensure the mold remediation process was completed successfully and that all mold spores and colonies have been removed from the home or business. If you substitute the word "removal" for the word "remediation" it will make more sense to the common Florida home or business owner.

There are many places for mold to hide in our indoor environments here in the Tampa Bay area located in Florida. In some cases, indoor mold growth may not be obvious to those in Clearwater or Tampa who think they may have a mold problem. Prior to performing mold remediation, the mold source must be identified. This will include stopping the source of the water (or food) that the mold is feeding on. It doesn't make sense to perform a mold remediation without first stopping the reason the mold started growing in the first place. If you live in Tampa, Clearwater or the surrounding areas we can perform an infrared leak detection for you which will identify the source of the moisture causing the need of a mold remediation. It is possible that mold may be growing on hidden surfaces, such as the backside of dry wall, wallpaper, or paneling, the top of ceiling tiles, the underside of carpets and pads, etc. Possible locations of hidden mold in Tampa or Clearwater can include walls behind furniture (where condensation forms), condensate drain pans inside air handling units, small plumbing leaks inside of walls or ceilings, or roof materials above ceiling tiles (due to roof leaks or insufficient insulation). With the heavy rains in Tampa and Clearwater, roof leaks can soon turn into large mold remediation projects.

What Is Mold Remediation?With many older buildings in the Tampa Bay area, building materials such as dry wall with vinyl wallpaper over it or wood paneling, may act as vapor barriers, trapping moisture underneath their surfaces and thereby providing a moist environment where mold can grow. You may suspect hidden mold and require mold remediation if a building smells moldy or musty, but you cannot see the source, or if you know there has been water damage. It is imperative in the Tampa Bay area to get building materials dry as soon as possible after water damage occurs. The sooner these building materials are dry, the less chance that a mold remediation will be necessary. Investigating hidden mold problems may be difficult in Florida and will require caution when the investigation involves disturbing potential sites of mold growth. For example, when performing mold remediation, removing wallpaper must be done correctly in order to prevent the massive release of mold spores into the indoor environment.

An experienced mold remediation professional will always form a mold remediation plan prior to the start of any mold remediation job. A copy of this plan should be given to the homeowner prior to the start of any mold remediation project. There are many mold remediation contractors in the Tampa Bay and Clearwater area. Be sure to select a licensed mold remediation contractor prior to the start of any mold remediation project.
