Every year many families and businesses in Amherst, New Hampshire (NH) need mold remediation services. Examining mold remediation professionals in order to hire the right one can be a challenge. When it comes to options in southern New Hampshire there are several true professionals and unfortunately a fair amount of unscrupulous companies. You want to make sure you have confidence when choosing the right one for you. The team at Soil-Away Cleaning and Restoration Services has put together this article to help educate consumers on the industry and what to look for when hiring a mold remediation pro.
Mold professionals are dedicated to their trade. They have a deep passion for helping people and doing the job right! It is not about making a quick buck. Many claim to perform mold remediation services, but the reality is that it is just their “side – gig” job as weekend warrior. This is not who you want to hire for your Amherst home. Mold removal is a specialized field requiring significant training and credentialing. Certified mold remediation professionals have committed their careers to helping people overcome mold issues in their home and their investment in education, training and equipment is proof of that.
Mold remediation professionals abide by a strict standard-of-care and therefore do not cut corners when it comes to remediating mold from your property. Standards, such as the IICRC S-520, set forth guidelines to follow on how to properly perform these services. Too many fly-by-night contractors just resort to “spray and pray” methods which are ineffective in the fight against mold. Professionals are meticulous and thorough throughout the entire process. They will set up proper containment to avoid cross-contamination. They will ensure safety for building occupants. Employees will be equipped with proper personal protective equipment (PPE). They will also focus on mold source removal which may include methods such as building material disposal (affected drywall, insulation, carpeting, etc…), HEPA vacuuming, dry-ice blasting, anti-microbial treatment and more.
A true mold remediation professional will welcome the notion of being held accountable for their work. Many mold damage projects involve pre and post remediation testing by a mold inspector. The pre-testing is to set a baseline of the contamination levels, outline the scope of services and establish cleanliness goals for the mold removal. The post-testing is to verify that the remediation services were effective. Mold remediation professionals like to work with mold inspectors because it confirms successful remediation and gets the best results for the client.
