Mould Removal Cost
How much does it cost to get mould removed?
Mould removal costs vary within a scale, depending on the severity of the mould problem and can be a costly exercise.
A specialist who offers holistic remediation will perform a pre-assessment, sampling, testing, physical removal, cleaning, drying and reinstating of your property back to a pre-loss condition, then sign it off.
If the job requires low-level remediation inside a property that has little cross-contamination, the costs could be relatively low.
As we progress up the severity scale, there is more time and labour required, as more travel and testing. This causes the costs to increase.
What is the mould removal process?
The first step to removing mould, whether in a commercial or residential setting, is to pre-assess the situation to make sure we understand what is affected, and what we need to do. During the pre-assessment evaluation of the affected area, we will examine and report on what needs to be removed.
After this, a containment area is set up, to ensure the affected area will not continue to spread mould. An air filtration device will then be applied to negatively or positively pressurise the room, to ensure the risk of cross- contamination is reduced. Technicians will be equipped with the appropriate gear and tools for the specific remediation job.
Once ready, they move into containment, perform the physical removal and double bagging, to ensure the mould does not spread. Then the affected materials are put into a specialised disposal waste bin.
The next steps are the physical and HEPA filtration of any other affected areas, and HEPA filtration of any other affected materials. A chemical wash down will then be done, drying equipment will be installed and then materials will be checked to ensure they are dry, according to their benchmark levels.
A final HEPA filtration of the affected area and attaining benchmarks can take from three to nine days, depending on the size of the project, what’s affected, and what needs to be fried. Before an affected building can be reinstated to the property owner or the insurance company for builders to continue their work, a mould release encapsulation product will be applied over the framing, or the materials that were affected. This resistant coating is the last step before bringing the property back to pre-loss condition.
How can mould be managed over time?
Providing the source of the problem mould has been resolved, you can manage mould by ensuring affected areas are regularly cleaned, wiped down, and HEPA filtered. Increasing air flow into a property is another way to manage mould over time.
