Highly Trained Professionals Are Important for Mold Remediation
Discovering that your home has mold can be frustrating and a bit frightening. How did it get there? How do you get rid of it? How can household items damaged by mold be repaired? How can you stop mold from happening again? As highly trained professionals in mold remediation, there’s a reason why SERVPRO of Phoenix is the ideal company to call for mold issues in your home.
What is mold remediation?
Many people mistakenly assume that mold remediation is the same as mold removal, but that is actually untrue. In reality, mold is everywhere, indoors and outdoors, so guaranteeing “removal” of mold is impossible. What is possible is mold remediation, where mold issues are assessed, mold is contained, air filtration is implemented, mold infested materials are removed, and final cleanup and restoration of mold damaged items is completed. It’s a complicated process that needs professionals trained in mold remediation to get the job done thoroughly and correctly using a mold remediation process.
What kind of training do SERVPRO of Phoenix professionals receive?
While there’s no such thing as mold remediation school, there are several programs and certifications that SERVPRO of Phoenix technicians go through to ensure they’re doing the best job possible. First, there’s the initial franchise training, a 15-day hands-on course at the SERVPRO Corporate Training Facility that serves as the foundation of the SERVPRO training program. This course covers many restoration topics that not only include mold mitigation, but fire and water restoration, and carpet and upholstery cleaning. They also go through IIRC training and certification. IIRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) certifies and sets the standards for all the cleaning and restoration industries. SERVPRO technician professionals study IICRC standards and best practices in mold remediation, water restoration, fire restoration, carpet and upholstery cleaning, as well as other cleaning and restoration courses, to continue growing their expertise. In addition to this, there are several volunteer certifications programs through the franchise focusing on training, cleanup and restoration. Last, there are web-based and in person ongoing education classes that cover a variety of professional development topics on mold restoration and much more.
