Mold Remediation

THE ACE MOLD REMEDIATION PROCESS ADHERES TO THE MOST PROVEN STANDARDS AND PROCESSES IN THE INDUSTRY


We know that all sounds technical and important, and it is, but what it means to you is that we know what we are doing and you are going to be glad you chose us. At its core, the Ace system:


Identifies the problem • Creates a safe work environment • Removes the sources of the problem • Installs moisture controls to prevent future problems

STEP 1: SITE ASSESSMENT

 

UNDERSTANDING THE PROBLEM IS THE FIRST STEP TO SOLVING IT

 

The IICRC S-520 provides an easy to understand, 4-step process for uncovering the cause(s) of your problem so it does not happen again.

Before beginning work, it is always best to assess the building thoroughly for obstacles and opportunities that might otherwise be overlooked.

 

Site Assessment is the best chance to formulate a game plan that will be effective and minimally invasive.

STEP 2: SITE PREPARATION

 

GET STARTED RIGHT

 

A quality mold and moisture control system installation begins with good site preparation. That means creating a safe work environment and removing stored materials, insulation and anything that could get in the way (during the cleaning step) from the attic, basement or crawlspace. 

STEP 3: STRUCTURAL CLEANING

 

COMPLETE CLEANING BASED ON PROVEN STANDARDS

 

Proper structural cleaning and/or mold remediation is based on industry procedural standards from the institution of inspection cleaning and restoration certification (IICRC).

 

The mold remediation standard of cleaning (IICRC S-520) was adopted from the procedures using in remediating asbestos due to molds propensity for cross-contamination. 

STEP 4: MOISTURE RELEASE

 

The next step is to identify and address solutions to EXCESSIVE WATER AND/OR MOISTURE ISSUES 

 

IN THE ATTIC, BASEMENT OR CRAWL SPACE. 

 

In the attic, this includes factors such as proper dryer duct venting or bathroom exhaust venting.

In the basement or crawl space, this could include waterproofing via proper drainage, use of sump pumps, french drains or redirecting gutter downspouts.

STEP 5: LONG TERM PROTECTION

 

There will always be situations where moisture can be introduced to a treated area.

 

The truth is surfaces can get wet, they just should not stay that way.

 

ClearGuard & MaxGuard will not allow surfaces to get wet in the first  place because they are exterior-grade, commercial protective coatings that have been tested to ASTM D-5590 standards for mold resistance.
