Mold Growth Identified
Farmer was contracted by a local hospital authority to conduct an asbestos inspection of an entire floor scheduled for renovation. In the course of the asbestos inspection, it was observed that there was visible mold growth behind the wallpaper at certain perimeter walls. It was determined that moisture trapped behind the wallpaper on nearly all of the perimeter walls was a perfect breeding ground for mold. Farmer conducts clearance testing as a Mold Remediation Contractor completes removal of contaminated building materials in each containment area. Farmer project manager, Chris Kaseta, obtained tape lift samples to utilize as ‘clearance tests’. These samples are submitted to Moody Labs for identification of mold colonies – results determine if the contractor may turn the affected space over to the hospital or will need to re-clean the work area.
