for main cause of Mold…..Water intrusion and
household moisture problems can be divided into
two distinct categories:
1. Humidity and condensation
2. Moisture transport Humidity and condensation:
Defined as the process of gas or vapor changing
to a liquid, this can be observed by simply taking
a cold drink outside on a warm day. Small droplets
of water will appear on the exterior surface,
as result of the warm, moist air contacting the
cold surface of the drink. This reaction occurs
because the amount of moisture held by air depends
on the temperature. The measurement of this is
referred to as relative humidity (RH). Abasement,
for example, with cold air cannot hold a significant
amount of absolute moisture. But the relative
humidity could be high, because colder air has
a limited capacity to hold moisture. Thus, a small
increase in moisture can dramatically elevate
Intrusion is a primary concern of contractors and
builders. It defines as the unwanted ingression
of water into a structure from an exterior location.
Through builders cannot influence the occurrence
of rain or flooding, how the building responds to
such inundation varies widely. Obviously certain
regions experience much more exterior water related
issues then others. Some of the most common problems
you will encounter are listed below:
• Faulty or
missing gutters and downspouts.
• Failure of the flashing around skylights,
windows, vents, chimney, etc.
• Groundwater intrusion through the cold joint.
• Siding failure or improperly installed siding
or building paper.
• Roof leaks or inadequate sheathing / roofing
• Improper landscape draining, i.e. no French
• Rising water table flooding the crawlspace.
• Sump pump failure.
• Failure of caulking or sealing around windows,
showers units, toilet seals, etc.
are Five General Principles used in mold remediation
of mold-Contaminated structures and materials.
The five principles of mold remediation are explained
1. Provide for the health and safety of workers
and occupants. Performing mold remediation
can expose workers to health and safety hazards.
workers must be protected from exposure through
a combination of engineering
controls and specialized work practices, such
as controlled demolition, containment
and air pressure controls, and use of appropriate
respiratory protection and
other personal protective equipment (PPE) The
spread of contamination has the
potential to expose remediation workers or occupants
to contaminants and create
the need for additional remediation work. Use
of appropriate containment and
air pressure controls is the usually the most
effective way to prevent spreading microbial
contaminants. Proper containment is also effective
to prevent occupants from
entering the contaminated area.
2. Document the conditions and work processes.
An effective mold remediation plan cannot
be developed without first determining the extent
of contamination to be removed.
Using the condition methods ranging from 1-3.
Condition 3 areas can be located
using sensory (e.g., visual or olfactory investigative
techniques, or it may be
difficult or impossible to locate all pockets
of hidden growth without
use of intrusive or destructive techniques. If
used without adequate
containment, intrusive and destructive techniques
can result in the release
or spread of contaminants.
ensure that remediation work is being properly
performed, it is highly recommended
that the appropriate documentation of the remediation
process be kept by project
management. Spores that disperse from condition
3 areas and settle on
surfaces in other areas may create contaminated
conditions in those areas
where they accumulate. Theses areas are referred
to as a condition 2.
Control the contaminant at its source It is highly
recommended that mold contamination
be controlled as close to its source as possible.
When mold spores are aerosolized,
they become much more difficult to capture. Therefore,
it is important to prevent
aerolization. This can be accomplished in a number
of ways in various stages
of remediation process by using appropriate work
• Control of the containment, an example
of source containment is the use of self adhering
plastic over mold growth on gypsum board to prevent
dispersal. Also minimizing
dust generation during demolition, using vacuum-assisted
power tools and locating
an air filtration device close to the work area.
With the control of moisture
mitigation services, ensure that the mold contamination
does not spread.
Physically remove the contamination (source removal)
It is highly recommended that
mold contamination be physically removed from
the structure and contents to return
them to condition 1 status.
5. Correct the moisture problem to prevent recontamination.
Since mold spores are present
at background levels in a normal fungal ecology,
mold growth is virtually inevitable
if moisture is not controlled. To prevent this,
moisture problems must be identified,
located and corrected or controlled as soon as
possible. Successfully mold
remediation results in the return of the remediated
structure and contents to Condition
1. Reconstruction normally does not begin until
moisture is controlled, mold
remediation is complete and materials are dry.
Provide a detailed report/proposal
of described work to be done to alleviate the
problem and help prevent
any future problems associated with mold growth.
• Provide all contracting work:
all excavation as well as all ways to stop water
intrusion to the home
(inside and outside), foundation work, demolition
and removal of all rubbish
in basements and attics,
work in crawl spaces.
