When you’re choosing a company to handle mold remediation, there are certain things to look for. You will hear people tell you to look for a certified or capable provider, but how do you know when someone really is qualified?
Here are a few tips and things that you can investigate.
The certification that a company or person holds might vary, but it should be mold-related in some way. For example, one technician might actually have a public health degree. Other companies might have IICRC, or another similar certification.
You can ask companies that promote their ability to handle mold removal what their qualifications are. If their answer is just “experience,” then they may not truly be qualified.
Yes, experience is relevant. However, these certifications, degrees, and training programs are designed to properly train and prepare the professionals to do things right.
Another thing that qualifies a person to handle mold remediation is having the right equipment. Anyone can claim to be able to handle the job, but are they really prepared?
This equipment is often very expensive and very specialized. It will include safety equipment for anyone working on the job, as well as whatever might be needed to remove mold, filtrate the air, contain the process, and properly dispose of materials.
Every professional company is different, so their equipment won’t always be exactly the same. But they definitely will have a variety of equipment to meet the demands we just listed.
What Do They Offer in Terms of Mold Remediation?
If you have extensive mold damage, you might also want a company that can cleanup, mitigate, and restore after damages. Not every company handles all these options.
You will want to be sure that whatever company you hire can not only handle removing or treating the mold, but also help with any restoration that needs to accompany the process.
The last thing you want is to end up with a hole in the wall and having to look for a company to come in and fix that after the fact.
There is a lot to know about safety when removing mold. Some molds can be toxic. Mold also spreads very easily, which means there have to be steps in place to help with these issues.
Your mold company should have safety practices in place designed to keep all employees safe, as well as to keep you and your property safe.
Feel free to ask them what they do for safety. They should be able to quickly tell you all their safety protocols.
