Mold Removal for South Beach Miami
Strict South Beach Mold Removal Protocols
When appropriately completed South Beach mold removal delivers a deep cleaning, removing contaminated materials and disposing of them according to local regulation. Following an established procedure ensures no areas or critical steps are missed during the remediation. As the cleaning process inevitably disturbs the organisms and the damaged building materials, it is crucial that protections are in place and used consistently to limit residue spread. AdvantaClean adheres to a routine procedure to clean up the microbial growth and damaged structures, diligently completing and repeating steps as necessary and following industry best practices.
Containment Measures are Necessary
South Beach mold removal projects create large quantities of airborne particles. If significant demolition is required, crumbled structural components join the scraped-off microbial colonies and spores infusing the air of the targeted area. The construction of pressurized containment surrounding the workspace sets the stage for a safe and effective demolition and cleaning process. After wrapping the space with heavy-duty polyethylene, negative pressure air scrubbers are installed to HEPA-filter and exhaust the contained atmosphere to the outside. Precautions include:
● Using thoroughly cleaned air scrubbers to avoid cross-contamination from previous jobs
--AdvantaClean maintains our air scrubbing equipment meticulously to achieve this purpose.
● Wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) for remediation crew member safety and limiting residues to the containment area
--AdvantaClean management adjusts the level of PPE intensity to the particular circumstance of the job, requiring technicians to graduate from N95 masks to full face respirators or half mask respirators, with N95/P100 cartridges, when the independent mold assessment report indicates the presence of “black mold” (Stachybotrys).
● Controlling the demolition interventions as much as possible to minimize the quantities of dust and microbial particles raised.
Professional Mold Cleanup Strategies Can Owners Expect
Once we establish containment, AdvantaClean mold remediation technicians get to work. Mindful tear-out exposes hidden organisms and their damage resulting in a hopefully limited amount of larger debris. Crews pack out the pieces, securing them for lawful hazardous waste disposal. Then our technicians commence the evacuation of smaller residue particles:
● The tools of choice are HEPA-filter-equipped vacuums.
● We vacuum every surface, high to low, including fixtures, with special attention to edges, cracks, and crevices. After one pass with the vacuums, no dust should be visible.
● Air scrubber filters and PPE are now changed out, and an EPA-registered antimicrobial is applied for the dwell time recommended by the manufacturer.
● One-way surface wiping with micro cloths, changing frequently, is next.
● A second vacuuming occurs and, in many cases, is sufficient. If residues are still apparent, the cleaning cycles repeat with new filters, PPE, and cloths until all surfaces are free of residues.
● The final step after removing tools is a 48-hour air scrubbing, filtering the air at a rate between 4-6 ACH (air change per hour).
Other Common Areas for Mold Removal
Properties with HVAC systems risk exposure of the ductwork to residues if operating during the microbial remediation. AdvantaClean checks to ensure the system is off while South Beach mold removal is in progress. After the mold removal, a complete air duct cleaning is recommended to catch any stray airborne particles and prevent a dirty HVAC system from contaminating your comprehensively cleaned spaces.
