Mold Abatement Removal Work Has Not Been Done Properly In Some Schools and Public Buildings

Everyday in Ontario Mold and Fungus removal and abatement work in our schools and public buildings is done improperly. It is the opinion of many professional Consulting Engineers and Environmental Consultants involved in Ontario's Environmental Abatement Industry, the mold abatement work is not being removed properly, by unqualified contractors and their untrained staff.

If they do not remove and kill all the mold and fungus. They are only removing the visible surface mold and fungus and not killing the roots. Therefore the mold and fungus will grow back and we will be spending millions of dollars in the near future, the mold and fungus from the same areas.

Restoration Environmental Contractors is a member of the Environmental Abatement Contractors of Ontario, an industry association. In our opinion we see the following problems associated with Mold Abatement work now

The key is to kill the root s and remove the top layers of the wood called the substrate and properly seal or lockdown and dry the area. Not killing roots of mold and fungus the Mold and Fungus will grow

No Full Time Inspection and Air Monitoring of Mold Abatement Sites by Independent Environmental Consulting Firms

Using Unqualified - General Contractors and using untrained Workers with no abatement training

Poorly Trained or untrained Site Supervision and Site Management

Lack of Worker Health & Safety Training

Lack of Personal Hygiene Training

No Medical Surveillance of Workers

Many General contractors performing Mold and Fungus removal work in Ontario Schools are learning as they go and not following proper abatement industry protocol.
