Finishing Up a Job - In a Clean, Compliant Manner

green piece of equipment Spores inside! Your remediator's air scrubber collected millions of spores. The scrubber should be sealed before transporting out of the condo.

You're a condo association manager, and you're happy to see the mold remediation come to an end in unit 311.  You see the remediation company rolling out its equipment through your hallways, down the elevator and through the lobby on the way to the truck.

Maybe you should be more concerned than happy.

Truth is, the remediator could be contaminating that common-area hallway, elevator and lobby, with all of the mold spores it's been collecting in its equipment throughout the course of that dirty remediation. It's conceivable that each air scrubber could have collected millions of mold spores throughout the course of that job. Here's the thing - those same spores could come right back out of the machine when the machine is being wheeled through the hallway, elevator and lobby.

A significant number of those spores could be affecting neighbors through no fault of their own, due to the lack of care of the remediator.

It's so simple -- all the remediator needs to do is seal up the intake component of the air scrubber, so that the spores can't be released during transport. Few remediators perform this task, however, because they've passed their mold test and have collected their payment, and they realize they won't get caught . . . or they haven't thought of this themselves.
