If mold is found in your home, ETL will provide a detailed remediation plan to confront the mold where it starts, eliminate it, and restore your home back to a safe and healthy space.
As a NYS-DOL licensed firm, Exclusive Testing Labs Inc. will monitor the entire project to ensure that all licensed remediation contractors use the following procedures, along with others, when remediating mold from your home or work space.
Containment –Using a minimum of 6 millimeter plastic sheeting, we will create a double walled barrier between the affected area/areas and the other parts of the home. We will also seal off any and all duct work and vents, all in order to prevent the further spread of mold spores.
Personal Protection Equipment –Protective gear that is worn at all times at the work site, this includes but is not limited to gloves, goggles, HEPA respirators, shoe covers, and disposable coveralls.
Negative Air Pressure –Using a 99.97% HEPA vacuum, we will create within the containment area an environment in which all particles of any size, including microscopic spores and dust particles, fall to the ground.
Air Scrubbing –Using a 99.97% HEPA vacuum with a Micro Trap, we will “scrub” or filter all of the air within the areas in which we work, both during all remediation of mold and microbes and afterwards to ensure that all of the air within the space is clean and free of spores and harmful contaminates. Usually we will scrub the air for three days after the removal of all mold infected materials.
Microban –This is a product that has the ability to kill and clean all molds, fungi, microbes, and bacteria that could be growing on structural surfaces. We use Microban on items such as wall studs, flooring joists, and ceiling trusses. We will also use this product on any surface that is warranted; i.e. – any hard surface that is within the affected containment area and is not being removed through the remediation process.
Anti-Microbial Sealer –After using Microban to safely kill and clean away all active and dead mold colonies and spores growing on surfaces that will not be removed through the remediation process, we will then seal those same areas with an anti-microbial sealer to inhibit the future growth of molds.
