The Mold Girl is an independent third-party mold assessor. It is a known industry standard with the IICRC, ACAC, and many others that the mold removal company should not determine the extent of work to be done or clear their own work due to a conflict of interest. The Mold Girl should be the first person to call when mold growth is found or suspected to write a scope of work for the remediation company to follow!

5 REASONS FOR A MOLD REMOVAL PROTOCOL
RESOLVE CONFLICT OF INTEREST
You had a large loss, and the restoration company says they only need to remove affected material to point A, yet you know that water traveled to point B. Let us be your unbias voice that will truly determine what needs to be removed and how far contaminates have spread. Our only goal is the health and safety of you and your home.
IT’S INDUSTRY STANDARD/LAW
Wondering if your job was completed correctly or done right to even begin with? Did you know that there is actually a set of industry standards that are the law in which restoration companies are instructed to follow? No all companies are not created equal, and no mold is not just something that any handyman can take care of. Let us spell out the standards for you to get the job done the first time correctly.
LIMIT THE SCOPE MEANS LESS MONEY
While hiring an Industrial Hygentist is an additional expense upfront, we have found that generally, it ends up saving the homeowner money in the end. All too often we have heard a home needs gutted, carpets taken out, and dyrwall removed down to the studs. While this may be truly needed at times, it is not always the case. Again your Industrial Hygentist’s only goal is health and safety, not an inflated bill.
INDUSTRY STANDARD GUIDELINES
Company A advises you they can spray your house for mold. Company B wants to take all drywall out. Which one is right and is it truly either of them. All to often we run into a homeowner that has received widely different estimates and is left guessing what scope of work is best and which one will truly help protect their home and their family. When you hire an Industrial Hygentist we will take out the guessing, write a scope for what truly needs done, and then verify the work at the end.
KEEP EVERYONE HONEST
When it comes down to your home it is most likely your biggest asset and not a time for guessing. While your professional and certified restoration company will be well aware of Industry Standards and the Guildelines, we have found that there are many other contractors out there that claim to do mold remediation; however, their ability to safely and accurately do it just doesn’t stand up. Let us be the buffer between you and the contractor that spells out what does need to be done, and what does NOT.
