What is Remediation?

Remediation- it’s a big word! It’s the name of our company of course, but do you really know what remediation means and what we have to do with it? Get ready to find out!


Definition

remediation

re·me·di·a·tion

noun

the action of remedying something, in particular of reversing or stopping environmental damage.


Meaning
The act of remedying something implies halting an undesirable situation and making it right again. In our cases, undesirable means uninhabitable. The buildings we remedy are damaged by water or fire, or infested with mold and asbestos. Therefore we have to repair the damage or infestation to make the building habitable again.

How it Works
Remediation Group uses several techniques to remediation uninhabitable buildings. One of the first things we do is a mold test and indoor quality air test. These tests identify the areas affected and help determine the degree of damage. Once the problems are identified, we use structural drying and/or dry ice blasting to remedy the building.

      Structural Drying: Mold growth is controlled by removing and containing moisture. We have machines for drying buildings and machines that move air to reduce humidity.

      Dry Ice Blasting: Similar to pressure washing, Dry Ice Blasting uses CO2 pellets to blast the spores from the building structure.  It is the most effective way to clean biological matter because it leaves no residue.

After our project is complete we always perform a mold clearance test. This test determines if the remediation techniques were successful and ensures the building is free of mold. This is the final step in making our buildings ready to be lived in again.
