Mould Decontamination Melbourne
To control escalating costs of mould remediation and further contamination Kleen-Tech offers an immediate response 24/7 and can attend the property within the hour or the day, depending on a time that most suits you. Our mould decontamination technicians are well practiced in the five major principles of mould remediation as outlined by the IICRC. These steps are outlined below that are the followed by all the Kleen-Tech mould remediation technicians in Melbourne and if done correctly, your property should be rid of mould infestations in no time.
Step 1: First ensure all safety and health precautions and procedures are upheld by mould remediation technicians and occupants. Mould contaminated areas can pose serious health risks if not properly managed, so Kleen-Tech first ensures that anyone involved in the mould remediation process is appropriately protected from exposure through a combination of practices and controls.
Step 2: A post-cleanup assessment must be performed by an independent environmental expert. An effective and accurate mould removal plan cannot be executed until the extent of the contamination is first assessed. To ensure that all mould remediation work is being performed accurately, appropriate documentation of the process and work done on different times and days is kept by project management.
Step 3: The mould is controlled by restricting its ability to spread beyond the infected areas. The key to this is eliminating the source of the contamination first to ensure effective mould remediation. Once mould spores spread throughout the air it will be much more difficult to capture.
Step 4: Oversee the effective and accurate removal of the physical mould. This involves physically removing the mould from effected structures or areas within a premises and not attempting to solely remove superficial mould. This method is not adequate and also note that bleach alone will not kill mould.
Step 5: Ensure moisture in the air and surfaces is controlled to limit further spread of mould and the risk of recontamination. This is a key step as mould remediation will not be successful unless the moisture in the air and surface is appropriately controlled. This involves locating, correcting and controlling the source of moisture immediately.

All of the steps above are highly specific and involve multiple disciplines and professionals from a range of mould restoration and environmental fields.
