The First Step in Remediation at Tri Span Environmental | Orange County Contractor

Tri Span Environmental is a leader among Southern California building remediation businesses. As experts in the field, Tri Span Environmental specialists know removal of hazardous materials from a building starts with complete containment of the toxic materials within the worksite area.

The Dangers of Contaminants

Containment of dust and debris is the first step in the complex process of removing asbestos, lead paint, mold, and fire-damaged components from a building. Protecting people from air-borne hazards and dust contamination during a remediation project is the highest priority for Tri Span Environmental on every job. In many situations, containment of dust and debris from the remediation area can be done while normal use goes on in other parts of the building.

Hazardous materials containment methods used by Tri Span Environmental in Los Angeles and Orange counties include setting up polyethylene barriers around the remediation site, closing vents and other openings with plastic sheeting and duct tape, and using HEPA filters and negative air pressure equipment for preventing dust infiltration into adjacent areas. Workers wear protective suits, gloves, and masks as needed and take steps to prevent hazardous dust and debris from entering living areas on shoes and when transporting debris off site for disposal.

Remediation & Cleanup Services

Inside the containment area on a remediation project, air filters and pumps keep fresh air moving in and hazardous dusts fibers from moving out. Once the remediation site is contained within a protective barrier, specialized vacuum cleaners designed for use with hazardous fibers and dust are used by Tri Span Environmental as part of the decontamination step.

Containment of hazardous materials is the foundation step in removal of asbestos, lead paint, and mold from any building. If not done correctly, dust and particles from the contaminated building materials can cause continuing problems and toxic exposure in the reconstructed building. Installing the proper hazardous material containment system is the first step on every Tri Span Environmental remediation project.

Hidden Mold Removal by Tri Span Environmental

Hidden Mold Removal by Tri Span Environmental | Orange County Hazard Remediation

Tri Span Environmental is a general contracting firm that specializes in the removal of hazardous substances like mold. People hear the word mold and most think of black or green slimy growths over surface areas visible to the human eye. The truth is the most dangerous kind of mold is actually hidden mold, which Tri Span Environmental crews are experts at detecting and removal.

Hidden mold often first alerts humans to its presence via odd smells or the presence of water damage found on the walls or ceiling. Hidden mold can and does grow in places not readily seen by the human eye like behind wallpaper, paneling, inside ceiling tiles, on the rear side of drywall, beneath carpets and carpet padding. If pipes run through walls or ceilings and moisture accumulates, the mold can grow on pipes, too. The common denominator to facilitate mold growth is moisture, created by condensation accumulation or leaks.

How Does Mold Spread in Your Home?

Mold spreads by way of spores. Tri Span Environmental not only has the equipment and experience to detect and eradicate mold, but also has qualified professionals who know how to combat the onset of spore growth and spread. Normal cleaning of a facility or an area will not remove spores or mold sufficiently to return an area to a sterile working or living environment.

Often buildings easily provide mold and its spores the necessary triad of factors for further growth. These factors are:

  • Nutrients
  • Moisture
  • Time

Nutrients can consist of dust, building materials and any organic matter. Moisture can be the simple presence of humidity already in the air, such as exists in many California localities near a body of water or coastal region. Any degree of moisture hastens decay, a process that mold serves to fulfill in natural settings. As for time, mold and its spores requires as little as 24 hours to start growing into a colony.

Even if a building sports a dry environment, if the location was subject to a flooding incident or a leak, local residents or workers can rest assured that mold growth has likely started. Mold can cause allergies, health problems, and in severe cases, death. Mold is a liability to a company both financially and legally. Tri span Environmental offers contracts and services to entities in the Southern California or High Desert Area to assist in mold prevention, treatment and removal.

Tri Span Environmental’s mold removal services can protect clients from further harm and forestall future incidents of invasive mold growth.
