Tampa Bay Black Mold Removal

In order for the type of black mold to be properly identified it must be studied underneath a microscope by a licensed mold assessment company.

Black Mold Found Behind Toilet in TampaThe Tampa Bay area is notorious for Florida Black Mold Problems. Tampa Black Mold removal should be performed by State licensed black mold remediation contractors. The scientific name for black mold is Stachybotrys atra. All in all the scientific name doesn’t mean a great deal to Tampa Bay area homeowners. Tampa Bay homeowners, when they see black mold refer to it as black mold and not Stachybotrys Atra. In order for the type of black mold to be properly identified it must be studied underneath a microscope by a licensed mold assessment company.

What is a Black Mold Assessment Company?

The State of Florida issues two different licenses in regards to mold and black mold removal. One of the two licenses issued is a mold assessment license. This Florida black mold license allows a company to go into a house and perform a mold assessment. You can think of a mold assessment as a mold inspection. Mold inspections will detail what type of mold is on the Tampa Bay home or business as well as how far the mold has possibly traveled. In addition to performing the inspections, mold assessments also include what’s called a mold protocol. This protocol instructs black mold removal companies on how to properly remove the Tampa Bay area black Mold. This is where the job of the mold inspection company stops and a Florida black mold remediation company takes over. Once the protocol (or directions) is completed by a Florida Black Mold Remediation Company, the Tampa Bay area mold inspection or assessment company returns and tests to ensure all of the mold or Florida black mold is removed.

Is there a difference Between a Black Mold Removal Company and a Black Mold Remediation Company?

Black Mold Removal Company TampaThe term black mold remediation is synonymous with the term black mold removal. A Black Mold Remediation project is essentially a Black Mold Removal Process. A Black Mold Remediation license is also a mold related license issued by the State of Florida. This license allows companies such as I Destroy Mold to perform Florida Black Mold Removal / Black Mold Remediation projects. Black mold removal entails setting up containment in the Tampa Bay property where the black mold is located. This containment is installed to ensure that Tampa Bay black mold spores (or seeds) are not spread to other areas of the Tampa area home or business during the mold removal process. Mold spores are very small and very lightweight. Without any added air movement or pressure, a mold spore will take two hours to drop one foot in the air only being induces by earth’s gravity. This is why it’s important to hire a team of mold removal specialists in order to complete your black mold removal project. The I Destroy Mold team has special cleaning equipment in order to clean the mold from Florida building materials such as drywall, wood studs, floors and ceilings. I Destroy Mold even has special air scrubbers which remove mold spores from the air during the black mold removal process. Without these special tools and equipment it is nearly impossible to adequately perform a black mold removal project.

Should I hire one company to test for black mold as well as perform a black mold removal project?
Even though members of our team hold both the State of Florida Mold Remediation license as well as the mold inspection (assessment) license, we feel it is unethical to perform a black mold inspection / assessment as well as a black mold removal project. We will come out at no charge to perform an initial mold inspection, but then we will hire a separate company in order to perform an official black mold inspection and write a black mold removal protocol. After this protocol is written, our team of black mold removal specialists can begin the black mold remediation process. Once we have completed this process, the third party testing firm will return to the property in order to perform a black mold test to ensure we have successfully removed the black mold from the air as well as the Florida building materials in your Tampa Bay area home.
