If you’ve ever been contracted to repair water damage to a property due to flooding or a broken pipe, you know the growth and spread of mold is a major concern. Getting a client’s building back to normal means coming up with a restoration plan that specifically addresses mold remediation. A complete plan includes the services of a professional inspector who is equipped to investigate the extent of the mold spread and determine what needs to be done to bring the affected structure back to pre-water damage conditions. Because mold is an organism that can grow and spread, a proper restoration must include a method for containment.
Why is Containment Necessary?
Containment is a means for isolating mold and preventing it from spreading to other areas on your property. Keeping mold spread limited to a particular area can be time consuming and labor intensive, further driving up the cost of a water damage claim. Containing the mold offers these benefits:
Minimization of damage to the property. Controlling the spread saves from having to remediate other areas.
Lower cost to repair. The less mold there is to clean up, the cheaper the restoration job. An insurance adjuster may be a lot less forthcoming when it comes to prompt payment for a costly or lengthy restoration.
Faster restoration time. The less mold spread there is, the quicker it is to clean up. There is also a shorter interruption to your cash flow as you await payment for services rendered.
How Can AIRWALL Help?
The AIRWALL represents a new standard in mold containment. Whereas other systems mostly involve a wall that is of limited effectiveness in mold control, the AIRWALL also recirculates air away from the affected areas, blocking mold spores from spreading to other parts of the property. This makes the mold remediation process easier to complete, shorter in duration and significantly lower in cost. Delay or withholding of payment for a restoration job from a difficult claims adjuster can cause cash flow issues for your business.
