Over the years I have done a lot of work for Marines stationed at Quantico Marine Base, mostly mold remediation jobs. Oftentimes, marines will rent or own a property and experience a mold issue. Several marines over the years have left stunning recommendations for Mold Metrix. Referrals have come from officers and enlisted service personnel stationed at Quantico.
Mold Remediation Standards
Credentials are a major part of contracting with the government, state or even with the marines, so when you do a project it’s very important for someone to have the designated qualifications to officially verify that a job was done to standard. I was in the military previously, so I have firsthand knowledge of how this works. This system of quality assurance is something I took with me from my military career into serving the commercial and residential markets. I believe that the Mold Metrix customer respects a service professional who is both experienced and credentialed. Mold Metrix service professionals are highly trained and are sure to meet or exceed all industry standards.
Mold Removal Documentation
In the military, it’s important that a project be documented, so this is also true regarding a mold remediation project done for the marines. Fortunately, project documentation comes standard with Mold Metrix. I was contacted by the Marines with regards to a military vehicle that had been exposed to water damage and was suffering from mold contamination. After fitting the criteria for this project and understanding what it means to work with the military, we were able to get a contract signed. The next step was to get approval for the fee to come out and inspect the project. I reached out to Alex Automotive of Woodbridge VA to inspect the vehicle ventilation system as it is always important to use specific trade professionals for quality assurance on mold remediation projects.
The key to this project, or to doing any mold remediation project concerning a vehicle is the air filtration system. You don’t want to have a person sitting in the car, breathing in mold. We want to be sure that when the vehicle is turned on the AC, heater, or the fan is not mold blowing from the ventilation system into the vehicle, contaminating air and putting the occupants at risk. When restoring a vehicle that has been water damaged and is now suffering from mold, not only do we need to remove all unsalvageable material to clean and decontaminate the vehicle, but we must also clean and decontaminate the air filtration system as well. This means taking apart the dash, cleaning out the air filtration system, changing the filter and putting everything back together.
