Mold inspectors work together with certified mold removal specialists to ensure that your project complies with all applicable codes. It’s not unusual for some areas in the United States to require an asbestos inspection. Mold abatement is necessary whenever a site is discovered to be contaminated. It is also necessary to remove the contaminated materials before foundation repair and construction can take place. As with most other types of projects, a professional inspection of your project will help you determine whether you need a mold assessment and mold eradication contractor to deal with the issue.
The inspection of your property will determine the presence of a mold issue. You might find that only a small percentage of the area under your house has any visible mold. Or you may find that the area is full of it. Either way, when you discover the issue, your job is to solve the problem. You may need to remove the mold and dispose of it properly.
You should receive a mold assessment from an accredited mold inspector before you get started. He or she will want to see what’s under the house, including basements, crawlspaces, storage sheds, attics and crawlspaces that aren’t currently being used. A soil remediation contractor will give you a report once the inspection is complete. This will answer many of the questions you have about your property, such as if you have a septic or other septic system, how much contamination is present and if so, what type of contamination exists.
A soil remediation contractor is experienced at removing contaminants from soil. Many businesses exist that specialize in soil remediation of various kinds of contaminated properties. In the Blue Ridge area alone, there are many contractors who specialize in complete property remediation, from asbestos removal to hydro-chlorination to lagoons and more. If you find that some aspect of your property needs attention, don’t hesitate to hire one of these contractors to take care of it. They will be able to do anything from removing toxic mold to improving your soil structure.
In many cases, you’ll need to get a soil test from the contractor. The exam will determine what contaminants are in your property’s soil. It can determine if you have too much fluoride or if there are toxic heavy metals like arsenic. It can also detect if you have too much sulfur or if you have too much friable material in the ground. All of this information is important to the health of your family. This is the most accurate way to determine where to find the sources of contamination.
The inspection report will also help you decide if soil remediation is necessary. Once the inspection is done, the contractor will discuss the options for cleaning up the contaminated soil. Depending on the severity of the contamination, you could have a cleanout, which means they would remove everything from the affected area, or you could have a leaching treatment done, which will push the chemicals down into the ground and out of sight. These professionals are trained to handle either situation. Their goal is to make your property as healthy as possible, so you won’t have to worry about it anymore.
In all, you have two very good reasons to call a Blue Ridge land surveyor. First, they’ll ensure your property has no harmful substances in it and they will inform you what, if anything, needs to be done with your property. Second, they will inspect your soil and tell you how to make it healthier. You may not realize how much of an impact the soil in your area is making, but knowing is always beneficial.
