Mold Remediation on Demolition Projects

Mold Remediation on Demolition Projects

Oftentimes while performing demolition, selective demolition, dismantling, plant decommissioning or plant relocation projects, R. Baker & Son encounters mold growth.  Mold exposure can cause adverse health issues ranging from mild to very serious, so it is important that mold remediation is performed properly.  R. Baker & Son is expert in various environmental services including mold remediation. 

Mold is a fungus that requires excess moisture to grow. This moisture can be come from a variety of sources such as flooding, leaks, poor drainage, standing water, sweating pipes, inadequate dehumidification, etc. If the building is not undergoing total demolition, it is important to identify and eliminate the source of the moisture. 

Merely applying a biocide such as bleach is not enough to eliminate health threats, as mold maintains its allergenic and toxic qualities even when in a non-viable state.  Mold must be physically removed using a specifically a formulated detergent solution, or effected building materials must be completely removed from the environment.  Where mold growth is extensive, remediation must be carefully controlled to minimize health and building contamination risks.

Because mold remediation was developed using asbestos abatement practices, the two abatement methods are similar with the exception of using water to suppress airborne particles. Affected areas must be contained with plastic sheeting to prevent mold from contaminating other building areas.  Remediation workers must be equipped with proper PPE including respirator, gloves, goggles, and, at times, protective suits. Mold-contaminated materials should be removed in large pieces where possible to avoid aerosolizing mold spores, then sealed in heavy polyethylene bags or sheeting.  After a settlement, remediation workers should clean the area with HEPA vacuums and damp-wiping with a bleach solution.  Air ducts, ventilation systems, and air handling units should be evaluated and remediated as well. 

When mold is encountered on any type of project, R. Baker & Son personnel are 100% OSHA safety trained and equipped to handle mold remediation, as well as many other environmental services.  Please contact us at 732-222-3553 to discuss your needs.
