Post Remediation Verification is the important final step to a successful Mold Remediation process. Sometimes referred to as "Clearance Testing" or "PRV" testing.
No lingering moisture intrusion issues
Air Sample confirms the mold spore level is within the Healthy Home Standard
The Post Remediation Verification is a visual inspection along with indoor air quality testing to determine if the remediation protocols provided by the Mold Inspector were followed.
The Post Remediation Verification Air Sampling should always be preformed and certified by a third party mold assessor.
In most cases, reputable remediation contractors follow the Florida statutes and national standard by directing the client to contact the original mold inspector for a return visit to provide the Post Remediation Verification, or they will contact the mold inspector themselves to schedule.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THIS VERIFICATION INSPECTION IS DONE PRIOR TO REMOVAL OF ANY CONTAINMENT OR BUILD BACK.
In providing Post Remediation Verification, The Mold Guyz follow the IICRC S520-2015 industry standard guidelines.
These guidelines state that in order for a remediation to have been successful the area must be returned to a Condition One (Normal Fungal Ecology) Status.
To verify a Condition One has been reached the Inspector will refer to the original protocols, they will visually inspect affected areas for any visual remaining mold and moisture issues. They are not only looking for visible issues, they are also preforming what we call a "smell" test to make sure that the areas are clean and free of malodor. If all appears to be clean, then the Mold Inspector will continue the verification by preforming the air samples to confirm there is no residual mold issues within the area.
Once the independent third party laboratory returns the results of the air samples, and if they confirm a Condition One result, the Mold Inspector will give the homeowner a Post Remediation Verification Clearance stating that the home or office as been returned to a Condition One (Normal Fungal Ecology).
However, please do not be confused. This is not a warranty or a guarantee that your home or office is mold free, it is just certify that on this time and date of the Verification the remediated areas have been returned to a Condition One.
In addition, the Post Remediation Verification is also important to prove to your insurance company that the Mold Remediation was done properly.
