Coral Gables Black Mold Removal Explained

Hot and humid conditions are a staple of South Florida’s climate, attracting people who appreciate the year-round sunshine and surf. Unfortunately, dampness and warmth also create the perfect environment for the growth of the oft-feared Stachybotrys chartarum or black mold. Black mold removal in Coral Gables requires the attention of trained and experienced technicians, such as our team at AdvantaClean of Miami. Here is what to expect as we plan for and implement the project.

Start with a Mold Assessor’s Report 

Even if you are confident that your property suffers from a Stachybotrys chartarum infestation, Florida law requires differentiation between the company that assesses a property where mold is suspected and the contractor eventually taking on the removal of the fungal infestation. AdvantaClean of Miami needs official written confirmation from a mold assessor certified by the state to perform an inspection before taking on black mold removal in Coral Gables. We can refer you to various appropriately credentialed resources if you talk to us before obtaining an official assessment and confirmation. Once the report is in your hands, we are eager to help resolve the situation.

Does Black Mold Removal Stir Up More Trouble? 

The strategies used by AdvantaClean of Miami to remove black mold in Coral Gables can be worrisome as they involve mechanically dislodging the colonies of mold organisms. Since some members of your family might already complain of adverse health effects, possibly tracing to the black mold, removal efforts that send spores, mold debris, and the mycotoxins some fungi create airborne can be a terrifying thought. We are aware of the hazardous conditions possible with unrestrained removal, as are other experts in the field. We train in the strategies recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as taught by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors (NORMI). Strict containment and disposal controls prevent mold and residues from exiting the work area during black mold removal, protecting our customers and workers from ill effects:

  • Technicians assigned to Coral Gables black mold removal wear an elevated level of personal protective equipment (PPE), including respirators.

  • We wrap and seal the black mold containing space with heavy-duty polyethylene.

  • The seal strengthens through the use of negative pressure air scrubbing equipment, which also forces the contaminated atmosphere through HEPA filters before exhaustion to the outdoors.

  • According to local hazardous waste regulations, we bag the loosened colonies and damaged building materials for disposal off your property. 

  • Spray and wipe-downs with EPA-registered cleaners take care of lingering surface residues, as does vacuuming with HEPA-equipped vacuums.

  • Surface and sometimes broadcast treatment with EPA-registered antimicrobials helps inhibit mold rebound on the now-cleaned materials.

Will Black Mold Return?

Although it is impossible to predict the future in all circumstances accurately, AdvantaClean of Miami is relatively confident of one thing. If black mold removal in Coral Gables is not followed by a moisture reduction and management plan, likely, some strains of mold will eventually absorb lingering water and start another infestation. Our owner and crews are well-versed in methods of moisture management and willing to make recommendations, including hiring a different contractor to cure unresolved water damage. The best practice is to maintain indoor relative humidity levels of 50 to 55 percent. We would love to discuss if our air duct cleaning services could assist with optimizing the operation of your HVAC system as a way to moderate humidity.
