Mold Remediation and Prevention
This is not strictly a green building issue, but hopefully some of the experts on this board might be able to provide some advice.
I’m the architect for a new residence under construction on Martha’s Vineyard, Zone 5. During an inspection this week, it was apparent that over the course of the previous week or two, mold had formed on the framing and floor deck over a portion of the basement. This portion was in a section where the floor deck had been exposed to the elements for several winter months. The contractor has installed some fans and is keeping the deck dry. They have also engaged ServPro, a national cleanup and restoration company to come in and provide a plan for mold remediation.
One complicating factor is that our client is extremely sensitive to allergens and a variety of air born chemicals. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best path forward, or just as importantly, what not to do? See photo attached.
