Peter Sierck is a industrial hygienist and mold consultant that helps others in the water restoration industry become mold remediation experts.
He gives us the most important thing to think about when on your on your next water restoration job and there is mold present. Even if it is only a small amount.
The single most important thing to do on a water loss when mold is found is not to ignore it.
The air movers, dehumidifiers, and even the antimicrobials used on a water loss can disperse mold throughout the building. You have now turned that entire building into a mold liability, and it is your mold liability now.
How do you avoid this?
Simply take plastic over the molded area to contain the area and then you can continue your drying process until you can properly remediate it.
Not handling the mold in the proper way can cause so much more trouble than what you bargained for when entering the job. Don’t let that happen to you. Take the necessary steps on your next job handling mold the right way.
