RGI Commercial ensures a safe work environment not only for our crews and supervisors, but also for building occupants.
At Risk of Environmental Materials ?
Properties built in the early 1980’s may contain Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM). Many times property owners are unaware of the hazardous materials present inside their property. Consulting with a licensed Asbestos Contractor is often times the most cost effective first step in determining if your property contains ACM building materials and if those materials require professional abatement. Contact RGI today if you’re concerned about asbestos or Lead Based Paint (LBP) in your commercial and residential property.

The Dry Ice Blasting Process
Dry Ice Blasting Applications
Source Removal is a new cleaning process that uses CO2 pellets (dry ice) for blast cleaning surfaces. Similar to high-pressure washing, sand or glass bead blasting, the process uses CO2 ice for more effective cleaning of biological matter like mold and is a less messy procedure than water-based or sand-based blasting. With dry ice blasting, the pellets evaporate upon contact, leaving no residue or by-product. Due to environmental and production advantages, this method is quickly becoming the preferred cleaning method for industrial and specialty cleaning applications.
Remediation Group, Inc. uses this state-of-the-art dry ice blasting process which has been proven to be superior to traditional methods like sanding, scraping and wire brushing. These methods often leave traces of mold spores in the wood grain and in areas difficult to reach. For this reason Remediation Group,Inc. recommends dry ice blasting.
The Mold Remediation Process
Mold Testing: Who to Use and When to Begin
Who to Use
Always use a qualified, accredited and insured Third-Party Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP) when testing for mold in your home or business. Do not use a mold removal or mold remediation contractor to test for mold. There are regulations and laws in place in many states that prohibit this practice (Florida being one of them). Unfortunately, Georgia does not have those regulations in place to protect consumers from scams and unethical testing “interest conflict” practices. Whichever IEP you choose, make sure that certifications are current and he or she has Errors and Omissions insurance specific to mold inspection and testing services.
When to Begin the Process
- After water damage has occurred, regardless of whether or not the water damage was properly dried – you should receive a Post-Remediation Verification (PRV) or Clearance Letter.
- Occupants are experiencing Allergies and or negative health effects.
- Prior to selling your property.
- Prior to purchasing a property.
- Homes built on a crawlspace can have moisture issues and are subject to humid ambient air. This can cause mold to grow inside the crawlspace and negatively impact the quality of the breathable air inside the property.
- Allergy sufferers occupy the property.
The above list is not all-inclusive. If you have any questions, please contact Remediation Group, Inc. for a free consultation.
The purpose of mold tests and indoor air-quality testing is to identify the areas affected by mold and to measure the degree of infestation on the surface and within the structure. The results will guide the development of RGI’s mold remediation plan.
Take the first steps towards putting quality back in your air.
Sometimes hiring an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Professional to conduct mold testing in and around your home or business can get expensive and take days to schedule. My Mold Detective™ (MMD) offers an effective, easy to use DIY Mold Testing Kit to screen your property for mold. MMD provides a third-party AIHA Accredited Laboratory analysis report, which includes a $35 per sample fee that is due during online registration. Finally, My Mold Detective delivers a mold test kit that utilizes the same methodology, “spore trap cassettes,” the IAQ Experts use – IT’S NOT A PETRI DISH.
