Following Established Mold Standards Ensures Proper Cleanup

Running a business in Colorado Springs, CO, means busy days on the go and juggling an array of tasks. While it may be easy to focus on the work, the building itself needs to not be neglected. If a musty odor or visible fungus growth appears, it’s not just a simple cleanup. The EPA, OSHA and IICRC have established industry-wide mold standards that need to be followed to ensure the problem is properly addressed.


Guidelines for Tackling Black Mold
A remediation plan will look different in every case. For damage that is under 10 square feet, it will likely mean minimal repairs. The larger the affected area, the more intensive the cleanup process will need to be. Other factors that play a role in determining the mold standards that will need to be followed include:

  • Presence of visible moisture damage
  • Complaints of a musty odor
  • Duration the building materials have been wet
  • Location and size of the growth


Professional Help
When it comes to mold clean up, placing your property in the hands of a certified mold remediation and restoration professional is important. Along with being up to date on all the industry guidelines, they have innovative tools and techniques to properly remove, repair and mitigate against another outbreak. During the process, they will adhere to standards associated with the containment of the affected area and the removal and disposal of damaged property and materials. Those steps are essential in preventing the spores from spreading to unaffected areas. Trained professionals also have the proper training to salvage items both on and off the property and make all the necessary restoration repairs.
When an unwanted fungus problem makes itself known, business owners don’t have to deal with it alone. Choosing a professional who is certified and trained on the latest mold standards and cleaning processes will make it “Like it never even happened.”
