Mould Removal service

Mould Removal service

Water damage left unattended or high moisture content in building materials can lead to mould growth on the building structures. Mould remediation cleanup includes the physical removal of mould from the property, which included the removal of the non-restorable building and content materials.

Following are some of the steps of the mould remediation work.

  • Install containment to separate all unaffected areas from mould-affected areas.
  • Maintain containment under negative air pressure.
  • HEPA vacuum to remove mould spores from surfaces.
  • Cut and remove all non-restorable flooring and building materials.
  • Thoroughly Clean all restorable surfaces using anti-microbial chemicals.
  • Install drying and air-purifying equipment to dry structures and remove mould spores from the air.
  • Monitor drying regularly and repeat cleaning as necessary.
  • Organise post-remediation testing with IEP (recommended)
  • Remove containment after receiving clearance from IEP
We can also provide mould-make-safe services to control the spread of mould while waiting for full mould treatment. Mould make-safe is a relatively quicker process and does not involve cutting and removing building structures. The aim of make-safe is to control the mould spread and reduce the concentration of the contamination till the full mould remediation is carried out.

We are mould removal specialist in Adelaide that are trained and qualified by Australian Cleaning and Restoration Academy to clean and restore mould-affected properties. We are equipped with all required equipment including industrial air purifiers, LGR dehumidifiers and air movers to quickly restore mould-affected properties.

All clearance testings are carried out by indoor air quality professionals external to A1 restoration.

If you are experiencing re-occurring mould problems in your property A1Restoration can help you find the root cause of the mould. We provide free no-obligation inspections and quote for all mould removal services. We can provide a quote for both initial mould-make-safe and full remediation work.

Left untreated mould-affected properties can lead to serious health problems for occupants of the property. It is recommended to carry out cleaning and remediation work as soon as possible when visible mould growth is present on the property.

If full mould remediation is not possible to carry out right away, at least make-safe including removal of mould-affected carpets and other building materials, followed by deep cleaning to reduce mould contamination level should be carried out.

Our detailed assessments include surface moisture assessment, air humidity assessment and thermal imaging of the property to check for levels of moisture and to find the root cause of the mould problems. We can also carry out initial surface testing to check for levels of mould in the property.

All our technicians are trained by Australian Cleaning and Restoration Academy to carry out moisture detection and mould inspection as per IICRC S500 and IICRC S520 standards.

Our initial assessments and quotes will provide a detailed scope of works required to achieve successful mould remediation and to restore building structures to the pre-loss condition. We are equipped with all the necessary equipment to carry out effective mould inspection and to carry out mould remediation work.

As per IICRC S520 standard, mould testing and assessment should be carried out by a competent person or Indoor Environment Professional. We can assist customers in initial mould assessment. Mould assessment testing determines the mould contamination levels on both surface and air to determine the concentration of mould spores.

There are two main types of mould testing.

  1. Surface testing using Bio-Tape
  2. Air Testing using Air-O-Cell Cassettes
All collected samples are analysed using a microscope in the mould laboratory to provide mould concentration assessment. The result of the initial assessment can be used to prepare the scope of works for restoration work and to determine the habitability of the property.

Post-remediation validation testing is also required at the end of the restoration work to ensure all mould-affected areas are restored satisfactorily. A post-remediation validation must be done by an external Indoor environment professional as per recommendations of the IICRC S520 standard.

We can assist you all the way from carrying out the initial assessment to initial make safe and full restoration, followed by organising external testing with an occupational hygienist or indoor environmental professional. We have restored hundreds of properties all across Adelaide and South Australia, we will bring quality service and workmanship to your mould testing and remediation project.
