Black Mold Removal
Farsight Management completes all mold remediation projects in accordance with the three national abatement guidelines. These guidelines are the New York Department of Health, the USEPA, and IICRC-S520. At the completion of each project, we provide a report that guarantees that we completed our work in accordance with these standards.
There are five steps to most mold remediation projects; first, to build critical barriers to separate the area to be abated from the rest of the building; second, to place the area under negative air pressure or install air scrubbers to control the debris that becomes airborne; third, to remove the contaminated building materials that cannot be saved, or must be removed to gain access to the problem areas; fourth, to physically remove the mold contamination from the surfaces; and fifth, to clean the containment area to a normal background condition.
5 STEPS TO MOLD REMEDIATION
1. Construct Critical barriers to separate the area to be remediated from the building
2. Place containment area under negative air pressure
3. Remove the mold contaminated building materials that cannot be saved
4. Remove the mold from the surface of building materials
5. Clean the containment area 3 times by HEPA vacuuming and wiping with a soapy cloth
INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Farsight Management has completed approximately 7,000 indoor air quality assessments in residential and commercial buildings. People spend over 90% of our time indoors so the quality of the indoor environment is critical.
Our assessments include the attic, each floor of the building, and in the basement or crawl space. We look for symptoms of elevated humidity, past liquid water events, and if there are changes to the building that could be made to lower the migration of moisture into the building or better ventilate the moisture that is present.
We have the full capacity to collect samples for laboratory analysis and interpret the laboratory data. A report is provided so you can clearly understand our findings.
When Farsight Management applies an antimicrobial coating at the end of a project, the manufacturer of the product provides a 25 year warranty that mold will not regrow on the treated surfaces. The warranty is void if the original cause of the elevated moisture that led to the mold growth has not been corrected. This warranty is provided by the manufacturer and not Farsight Management; we are not responsible for regrowth. The warranty certificate will be provided with the abatement report.
If Farsight Management has recommended changes to the ventilation system of the attic, and those changes have been made, FARSIGHT will warrant that mold will not grow in the attic for two years after the abatement has been completed.
Farsight Management guarantees that the mold has been removed in accordance with national mold abatement standards. We will provide an abatement report at the end of a project that will consist of a statement of completion, daily activity logs, photographs, and SDS sheets.
